Lord Krishna: Qualities of Lord Krishna

                                                                  Q. I understand that the 2 hand form of Krishna is the highest. Which form in particular? Gopinath or Syamasundara? The names of the Lord represent the relationships he enacts with his devotees, does it not? Please clarify.

                                                                  The 2-handed form of Krishna is the form in which He is known in Vrndavan. Either Gopinatha or Syamasundara (or many other names, for that matter) identify Krishna in His Vraja lila.

                                                                  Yes, names of the Lord identify His specific relationships or His transcendental qualites.

                                                                  Q. I am struggling with the dual concepts of good and evil as they are perceived from the mundane perspective in relationship to Krishna. I understand that Krishna is the source of everything, which brings a few questions that I cannot resolve in my mind. They are: How can Krishna be considered "all-good" and yet be the source of evil at the same time? Also, Is Krishna's goodness (Love) superior to his evil or are they qualitatively the same?

                                                                  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. When the sages give a curse/blessing to any demon and bless that they will be liberated by Lord Krishna, let´s say Narada Muni cursing Nalakuvara and Manigriva, how is it that Krishna acts according to their word? It sounds like the sages force Krishna to fulfill their blessing.

                                                                  Q. 1. One point of confusion for me of late has been trying to understand the pastimes of Lord Rsabhadeva in the Fifth Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam. Could you kindly explain to me what is the proper way to understand the pastimes of Lord Rsabhadeva?

                                                                  This question is very broad. Can you be more specific in what you would like to know about Lord Rsabhadeva?

                                                                  Q. According to Achintya Bheda Abheda Tattva we are qualitatively one but quantitatively different. At the same time we say Lord Krishna has 64 qualities, Lord Narayana has 60 qualities and Jivas have 55. These two statements seems to be contradictory. If we are qualitatively one, why we don’t we have 64 qualities?

                                                                  These 64 "qualities" are not the qualities that are being referred to in acintya bhedabheda tattva. The qualities being referred to are knowledge and bliss from the sat cit ananda features of both the soul and Krishna.

                                                                  These 64 "qualities" are quite different, in that they are His personal characteristics.
