Prabhupāda: Ladies and Gentlemen, I thank you very much for your coming here and giving us a chance to speak about the Absolute Artist. Kṛṣṇa's name is Naṭavara. Naṭavara. Naṭavara means the greatest dramatic dancer. And another His name is naṭo nāṭyadharo yathā (SB 1.8.19). He is dancing in such a nice way that He is attracting everyone.

So in the Vedas it is said about Kṛṣṇa how great artist He is. Na tasya kāryaṁ kāraṇaṁ ca vidyate (CC Madhya 13.65, purport). The Absolute Personality of Godhead, He has nothing to do personally. Na tasya kāryaṁ kāraṇaṁ ca vidyate. Kāryam means work. He hasn't got to perform any work, although He is the greatest worker. Na tasya kāryaṁ kāraṇaṁ ca vidyate na tasya samaḥ adhikaś ca dṛśyate. And nobody is found greater than Him or equal to Him.

In this world every one of us, we know that, "Somebody is lower than me, somebody is greater than me and somebody is equal to me." That is our experience. We cannot say that I am or you are absolute. Nobody is absolute. However you may be great in the estimation of others, you will find somebody is greater than you, and somebody is lower than you, and somebody is equal to you. But so far the greatest Absolute Personality of Godhead is concerned, na tasya samaḥ adhikaś ca dṛśyate.

By experimental study, by research work by great saintly persons, sages, they have concluded, na tasya samaḥ adhikaś ca dṛśyate: "Nobody is found . . ." samaḥ means "equal to Him or adhikaḥ," adhikaḥ means "greater." That is the experience.
