468) Whether I know, the source of impersonal Brahman is Krishna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————- Brahmano ‘ham pratisthä. In the Bhagavad-Gita it is said, “The impersonal Brahman is situated on Me.” Just like the sunshine. Although it is all-pervading throughout the universe, the light is there, but wherefrom the light is coming? The light is coming from Krsna.

That is explained in the Brahma-samhitä:

yasya prabhä prabhavato jagad-anda-koti- kotisv asesa-vasudhädi-vibhüti bhinnam

tad brahma niskalam anantam asesa-bhütam govindam ädi-purusam tam aham bhajämi [Bs. 5.40]

The Brahman effulgence is the bodily glowing of Krsna. Yasya prabhä. When Krsna expands His bodily effulgence, then everything generates. This material world has also come out of the brahmajyoti, or from the rays of the body of Krsna. Therefore Krsna says that brahmano ‘ham pratisthä. —————-
