Becoming God - an essential subject
God is not manufactured by ones mental speculation. God is God always, Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa is God from His childhood. When He was three months old He demonstrated His godly powers. He immediately killed Sakaṭāsura. He immediately killed Putanā. So He did not become God by meditation, manufactured in some mystic factory. God is God. God is always God. Even when He is a child, when He is a young man, when He is a boy. When Krishna was a boy of seven years old, He lifted the Govardhana Hill. That is God. Not that "Here is a man. By mystic power He has become God." No. Real God is always God. The idea that someone can become God by meditation is ridiculous. By hard endeavor one may realize his godly nature, but he will never become God.
