Prabhupada, Los Angeles, April 22, 1973: [...] When you think of Krishna as the greater than the greatest, you can think like this. And if you think Krishna is both, smaller than the smallest. That is also greatness.
That is also greatness. Krishna can manufacture this gigantic cosmic manifestation and He can manufacture also a small insect, smaller than the point.
You have seen sometimes in the book you’ll find one insect is running. The shape is smaller than the full stop. This is Krishna’s craftsmanship. Anor aniyan mahato mahiyan. He can create bigger than the biggest and the smaller than the smallest.
Now human being, according to their conception, they have manufactured the 747 airplane, supposed to be very big. All right. According to your consciousness, you have produced something big. But can you produce a small airplane like insect flying? That is not possible.
Therefore greatness means that who can become greater than the greatest and smaller than the smallest. That is greatness.
If you can act one-sided… That is also not perfectly.
Supposing you can manufacture still more bigger. I don’t think that the modern age they have manufactured the biggest. We get information from Bhagavatam. Kardama Muni, the father of Kapiladeva, he manufactured a plane, a big city. A big city, with lakes, with gardens, with big, big houses, street. And the whole city was flying all over the universe. And Kardama Muni showed to his wife all the planets.
