SIX OPULENCE OF KRISHNA PROVING HIS SUPREMACY!
Krishna is the ORIGIN OF ALL, The Supreme Personality of Godhead.
The term GOD simply denotes Krishna. Why?
We commonly hear people saying the word “GOD”. Yet firstly many don’t know what is the meaning of GOD.

The definition of GOD is given by Parasara Muni in Visnu Purana (6.5.47) as follows:
viryasya yasasah sriyah
sannam bhaga itingana
Bhagavan, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is defined as one who is full of six opulence, ie, who has full Strength, Fame, Wisdom, Wealth, Beauty and Renunciation.
When Krishna was personally present on this planet 5000 years ago, He demonstrated His SIX OPULENCE OF KRISHNA personally – Strength, Fame, Wisdom, Wealth, Beauty and Renunciation.
EXPLANATION OF SIX OPULENCE OF KRISHNA BY SRILA PRABHUPADA
When Krishna was only 3 months old He killed the demon Putana by sucking life out of her breasts. Further on when Krishna was 7 years old, He lifted the GOVARDHAN HILL with one finger. Many people exercise for wanting to be strong and claim to be strong, but this is Krishna, that at the age of 7 He lifted the GOVARDHAN HILL.
As far as wisdom is concerned, Krishna has given us the Bhagavad-gita. Who else has ever given such wise instructions throughout the whole world—throughout the whole universe? Nobody. the BHAGAVAD GITA was spoken 5000 years ago to Arjuna (as many millions of years ago to the SUN GOD) and is still being widely read in the world even today.

Concerning beauty, Krishna is so beautiful that 16,108 very, very beautiful women were attracted to marry Him. And many millions of gopis [cowherd girls] were also attracted by Krsna, the most beautiful male. One of Krsna’s names is Syamasundara. He is syama, “blackish,” yet He is still sundara, “very beautiful.” He’s so beautiful that His beauty surpasses that of millions and millions of Cupids (kandarpa-koti-kamaniya-visesa-sobham).
Another name of Krsna is Madana-mohana. Madana means “Cupid,” and mohana means “enchanter.” Cupid enchants everyone in this world, but even he is enchanted by Krsna. It is even stated in the scriptures that when the wives of he DemiGods saw Krishna from the heavenly planes, there were almost falling down of the plane seeing Krishna’s beauty.
Krishna appeared 5000 years ago and yet He is so famous. He is worshiped throughout the world. Is there anyone so popular and famous as KRISHNA?

Krishna was married to 16,108 princesses and HE expanded 16,108 times and was present with each and every princess. He lived with the princess in a palace. There were 16108 palaces which were all lit by jewels and not by light or electricity.
Today to have one palace is a big thing, but when Krishna was present here He had 16,108 palaces. Today one man cannot maintain and satisfy one wife even properly. But Krishna married 16108 wives and all were satisfied as Krishna expanded 16,108 times and was present individually with each wife. Krishna had 10 children with each of the princess. This is Krishna.
Although there are Six Opulence of Krishna in full, yet at the same time He is fully renounced. Srila Prabhupada explains that in this world if someone has a little opulence, he is so attached to it, but Krishna is full in all the opulence and yet He is full in renunciation also.
Hope you are now clear about the SIX OPULENCE OF KRISHNA.
