As stated in Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ (15.15), vedaiÅ ca sarvair aham eva vedyaá¸¥: by all the Vedas, it is Ká¹á¹£á¹a who is to be known. Lord ÅrÄ« Ká¹á¹£á¹a, setting an example by His own behavior, performed many ritualistic ceremonies described in the Vedas and established the principles of gá¹hastha life by marrying many wives and begetting many children just to show people in general how to be happy by living according to Vedic principles. The center of Vedic sacrifice is Ká¹á¹£á¹a (vedaiÅ ca sarvair aham eva vedyaá¸¥). To advance in human life, human society must follow the Vedic principles personally demonstrated by Lord Ká¹á¹£á¹a in His householder life. The real purpose of Ká¹á¹£á¹aâs appearance, however, was to manifest how one can take part in loving affairs with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Reciprocations of loving affairs in ecstasy are possible only in Vá¹ndÄvana. Therefore just after His appearance as the son of Vasudeva, the Lord immediately left for Vá¹ndÄvana. In Vá¹ndÄvana, the Lord not only took part in loving affairs with His father and mother, the gopÄ«s and the cowherd boys, but also gave liberation to many demons by killing them. As stated in Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ (4.8), paritrÄá¹Äya sÄdhÅ«nÄá¹ vinÄÅÄya ca duá¹£ká¹tÄm: the Lord appears in order to protect the devotees and kill the demons. This was fully exhibited by His personal behavior. In Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ the Lord is understood by Arjuna to be puruá¹£aá¹ ÅÄÅvataá¹ divyam â the eternal, transcendental Supreme Person. Here also we find the words utpÄdya teá¹£u puruá¹£aá¸¥. Therefore it is to be concluded that the Absolute Truth is puruá¹£a, a person. The impersonal feature is but one of the features of His personality. Ultimately, He is a person; He is not impersonal. And not only is He puruá¹£a, a person, but He is the lÄ«lÄ-puruá¹£ottama, the best of all persons.
