A person who is cent-percent engaged in the service of the Lord is the emblem of all knowledge. Such a devotee of the Lord in full perfection of devotional service is also perfect by the qualification of the Personality of Godhead. As such, the eightfold perfections of mystic power (aá¹£á¹a-siddhi) constitute very little of his godly opulence. A devotee like NÄrada can act wonderfully by his spiritual perfection, which every individual is trying to attain. ÅrÄ«la NÄrada is a cent-percent perfect living being, although not equal to the Personality of Godhead.
