Prabhupada, New York, December 3, 1966: [...] We do not know for how many millions of years the sunshine and temperature is coming out of the sun planet, but still the sun is the same.
There is no loss of temperature. So if in a material object this is possible, that in spite of distributing heat and light from the sun disk for millions and millions of years, the sun disk is still of the same temperature, there is no loss of temperature — this is a material thing — so why in the spiritual body of the Supreme there will be any loss?
This is a material idea, that, “Because God has become all-pervading, therefore He has lost Himself.” Why He should lose His identity? This is confirmed in the Vedic literature: purnasya purnam adaya purnam evavasisyate. If you take from the… He is so full that if you take the whole thing from Him, still, He is whole. Purnasya purnam adaya purnam evavasisyate.
So as described here, krsna svarupa ananta vaibhava apara. So although He is transmitting innumerable energies and although He is expanding Himself in innumerable forms, still, He is one. Still, He is the same and one.
That is the spiritual conception, or absolute conception. Absolute is not relative. “Because something has being taken away, therefore it is something less” — it is relative. It is not absolute. This idea is relative. I have got in my pocket ten dollars. So I have taken two dollars. Now it is eight dollars.
This is relative truth. This is not absolute idea. Absolute idea is that purnasya purnam adaya purnam evavasisyate. Avasisyate means the balance is still full. Whatever you may take, the balance is still.
