Krishna is always mysterious and ineffable

His enemies accuse Him of being a (butter) thief in childhood, a philanderer (married gopi friends) in youth and a murderer in manhood (the Kuruksetra war). But the Padma Purana reminds us that a Vaisnava is not ordinary. In this connection the Purana states (as written in Srila Prabhupada’s Caitanya Caritamrita, purport to Adi 7.115) arcye visnau sila-dhir gurusu nara-matir vaisnave jati-buddhih .. yasya va naraki sah: “One who considers the arca-murti, the worshipable Deity of Lord Visnu, to be stone, the spiritual master to be an ordinary human being, and a Vaisnava to belong to a particular caste or creed is possessed of hellish intelligence.” One who follows such conclusions is doomed. So Srila Prabhupada remembers (lecture in Rome, 1974) that Krishna also appeared to be a coward (Rancor), when he fled from Jarasandha. But his inner purpose (Srila Prabhupada reminds us) was to save the lives of ‘innocent’ soldiers
