Original Personality of Godhead - an essential subject
Vāsudeva is the Original Personality of Godhead Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa. That Original Personality of Godhead expands Himself by innumerable forms. Such expansion of forms is made possible by His various energies. His energies are also multifarious, and His internal energies are superior and His external energies inferior in quality. They are explained in the Bhagavad-gītā (7.4-6) as the parā and the aparā prakṛtis. So His expansions of various forms which take place via the internal energies are superior forms, whereas the expansions which take place via the external energies are inferior forms. Thus the Original Personality of Godhead is the worshipable by all.
