Now, Kṛṣṇa, when He was in the lap of His mother, He was God at that time also, not that He had to grow up and undergo some penance and austerity and vows and go to the jungle or Himalaya or accept some very great spiritual master and so on, so on, then He became God, as it has been now the practice, that anyone who, he's a little advanced in spiritual life, and if he can display some wonders, oh, he at once becomes God. So God is not so cheap thing, simply by playing some wonders.
Just like the other day I narrated the story of Durvāsā Muni. Durvāsā Muni was a great yogī. The yogīs can display many wonders. Many wonders. In my childhood I had got one tutor. So he was telling about his spiritual master—he was a yogī—that . . . he said that when he visited his spiritual master, who was a yogī, his spiritual master asked him, "What do you want to eat?" And because my teacher knew that his spiritual master was a great yogī, he wanted to have a taste of pomegranate of Kabul. In India pomegranate of Kabul, Afghanistan, that is very famous. So his spiritual master said, "Yes, you will find it in this room. You can see it." So he saw that just it has been taken from the tree of pomegranate, and the juice was falling down. You see? So these wonders can be played by a yogī. You see?
There are many yogīs still living, they can manufacture gold. They can manufacture gold. The process is that they can eat, I mean to say, what is called? Pārā. What is the English of pārā, that liquid metal, white?
Prabhupāda: Mercury. Yes. (chuckles) Yes. Mercury. They eat mercury. They eat mercury, and after, the next morning, they pass urine, and in that urine they put some copper coins, just like you have got cent. And when it is heated, the copper coins becomes gold. And it is a chemical, theoretical truth that the mercury, molecules of mercury and molecules of gold are almost similar.
Only one molecule is different. So mercury can be turned into gold. That is a chemical fact. And we have got information from Vedic scripture that formerly gun metal, gun metal mixed with mercury, could be transformed into gold. So these are some of the chemical process, physical process, which is being done by scientific advancement of knowledge. There are many yogīs who can do by yogic power.
Just like by physical process, now people are trying to travel in the space, but the yogīs can travel in the space very swiftly, more swifter than any sputnik. Just like the other day I narrated, the Durvāsā Muni traveled all over the space in the universe and outside the universe, and he came back within one year. So therefore Kṛṣṇa's another name is Yogeśvara. Yogeśvara.
