Lord Brahma: Position of Lord Brahma

                                                                  Q. 1. Is Lord Brahma guaranteed to return to Goloka Vrindavana at the end of his lifetime? I said that I believe it is not a guarantee but probably likely given that whichever jiva occupies the post of Lord Brahma will have 50/64 of the transcendental qualities.

                                                                  Q. In the Krishna Book, Chapter 4, where the counselors of Kamsa give instructions to him, they give some examples of the demigods being very much afraid of the demons. They also talk about the demigods surrendering and begging for their lives with folded hands. How could this have happened? Don't the demigods have a higher perception of Krishna? Doesn't Krishna protect the demigods? Doesn't goodness overcome evil?

                                                                  Q.  We know that Krishna is the supreme personality of Godhead and every soul is His eternal servant. Tilaka is considered to be the footprint of Lord Krishna with a Tulsi leave and therefore every devotee wears Tilaka in his/her forehead.
                                                                  Why then do we see a Tilaka in the Deity / Picture of Lord Krishna Himself? Could you please give any Shastrik reference to the explanation of the Tilaka on Krishna's forehead?

                                                                  Thank you for your question.

                                                                  There is nothing sastric that I am aware of to date, but there is tradition.
