Krishna Sees His Reflection by Prasanta Dasa

In Rupa Goswami's Lalita-madhava, it is said, "One day Krishna happened to see the shadow of His beautiful form reflected on the jeweled foreground. Upon seeing this bodily reflection, He expressed His feelings: 'How wonderful it is that I have never seen such a beautiful form! Although it is My own form, still, like Radharani, I am trying to embrace this form and enjoy celestial bliss.' " This statement shows how Krishna and His shadow reflection are one and the same. There is no difference between Krishna and His shadow reflection, nor between Krishna and His picture. That is the transcendental position of Krishna.

Quoted in Nectar of Devotion, Ch. 22 by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
