There are so many living entities, and they are all part and parcel of God. Just like the sunshine, the sun globe and the sun-god. The sun-god is within the sun globe, and the inhabitants of the sun globe, they are all very glowing, luminous. On account of their bodily glowing, the whole sun planet is glowing.

Prabhupada: Raghu-yugau sri-jiva-gopalakau. So Caitanya Mahaprabhu's cult is special cult. And He wanted to preach not only in India but all over the world. We have several times discussed this point, prthivite ache yata nagaradi-grama (CB Antya-khanda 4.126), this cult, Caitanya Mahaprabhu's cult. And what is that cult? Krsna-prema: to love Krsna, or God. God... In many religions they have got different names of God. And in Vedic scripture there are many demigods and incarnation of God. But Krsna is the original name of God. Krsnas tu bhagavan svayam. Ete camsa-kalah pumsah krsnas tu bhagavan svayam (SB 1.3.28). There is list of incarnations, and in the conclusion the sastra says, "In this long list there are many names, but the name 'Krsna' is particularly to be noted, that He is the original Supreme Personality of Godhead."

"God" means He is not like us. He can expand Himself. Even the yogis, some of the yogis - not these ordinary third-class yogis, but those who have attained yogic perfection - they can expand the body in at least up to eight. The yogis can do that. There are instances. So if an ordinary yogi can do that, just imagine how much potential there is of the Supreme Lord. Just like in the Bhagavad-gita it is said, isvarah sarva-bhutanam hrd-dese arjuna tisthati (BG 18.61): "My dear Arjuna, the Supreme Lord is situated in everyone's heart, in everyone living being's heart." You just imagine how many living entities are there. They cannot be counted. Jiva-bhago sa vijneyah sa anantaya kalpate. But there are many million, trillions. Even million, trillions is insufficient. There is no counting. There are so many living entities, and they are all part and parcel of God. Just like the sunshine, the sun globe and the sun-god. The sun-god is within the sun globe, and the inhabitants of the sun globe, they are all very glowing, luminous. On account of their bodily glowing, the whole sun planet is glowing. On account of the sun planet glowing, the sunshine, which is reaching us from 93,000,000's of miles - we feel the heat and the light. This is an ordinary material thing. So just imagine what is the potential of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
