Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 11 Text 8
na tu mam sakyase drastum
divyam dadami te caksuh
pasya me yogam aisvaram
na--never; tu--but; mam--Me; sakyase--are able; drastum--to see; anena--with these; eva--certainly; sva-caksusa--your own eyes; divyam--divine; dadami--I give; te--to you; caksuh--eyes; pasya--see; me--My; yogam aisvaram--inconceivable mystic power.
But you cannot see Me with your present eyes. Therefore I give you divine eyes. Behold My mystic opulence!
In his purport Srila Prabhupada reminds us of what is important in our relationship with God; The playmates of Krsna, the friends of Krsna and the parents of Krsna never want Krsna to show His opulences. They are so immersed in pure love that they do not even know that Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. In their loving exchange they forget that Krsna is the Supreme Lord. In the Srimad-Bhagavatam it is stated that the boys who play with Krsna are all highly pious souls and after many, many births they are able to play with Krsna. Such boys do not know that Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. They take Him as a personal friend.
