      The Sanskrit word bhagavan is explained by the great authority, Parasara Muni, the father of Vyasadeva. The Supreme Personality who
      possesses all riches, all strength, all fame, all beauty, all knowledge and all renunciation is called Bhagavan. There are many persons who are
      very rich, very powerful, very beautiful, very famous, very learned, and very much detached, but no one can claim that he possesses all
      riches, all strength, etc., entirely. Only Krsna can claim this because He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. No living entity, including
      Brahma, Lord Siva, or Narayana, can possess opulences as fully as Krsna. Therefore it is concluded in the Brahma-samhita by Lord Brahma
      himself that Lord Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. No one is equal to or above Him. He is the primeval Lord, or Bhagavan, known
      as Govinda, and He is the supreme cause of all causes:

                                                                        isvarah paramah krsnah
                                                                       sac-cid-ananda-vigrahah
                                                                           anadir adir govindah
                                                                        sarva-karana-karanam

      "There are many personalities possessing the qualities of Bhagavan, but Krsna is the supreme because none can excel Him. He is the Supreme
      Person, and His body is eternal, full of knowledge and bliss. He is the primeval Lord Govinda and the cause of all causes." (Brahma-samhita
      5.1)
