Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Advaita means Kṛṣṇa expands Himself. Kṛṣṇa can expand Himself, that is God. Just like I am sitting here, you are sitting here. Suppose you are wanted by your, some relative at home, but if somebody inquires that 'Mr. such-and-such is at home,' so the reply will... 'No. He's not at home'. Kṛṣṇa is not like that. Kṛṣṇa, goloka eva nivasaty akhilātma-bhūtaḥ (BS 5.37) . He is present everywhere. It is not that because Kṛṣṇa was speaking with Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukṣetra, therefore He was not in the Goloka or Vaikuṇṭha, not only Goloka, Vaikuṇṭha, everywhere. You'll find in the Bhagavad-gītā Kṛṣṇa is here also, now. Īśvaraḥ sarva-bhūtānāṁ hṛd-deśe arjuna tiṣṭhati (BG 18.61). Kṛṣṇa is everyone's heart. In your heart there is Kṛṣṇa, in my heart there is Kṛṣṇa, everyone's heart."
