Svayaṁ Bhagavān


Svayaṁ Bhagavān
According to Vedic literature, Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, svayam. Svayam means original.
In the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (1.3.28), it is stated:
ete cāṁśa-kalāḥ puṁsaḥ
kṛṣṇas tu bhagavān svayam|
All these incarnations are either plenary portions or portions of the plenary portions of the Lord, but Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the original Personality of Godhead.

✍ One is Svayaṁ Bhagavān, and the other is līlā-puruṣottama.
