You cannot find in the history of the world, five thousand years ago, who appeared and still famous. You don't find. There is not a single instance within the human history. But Kåñëa, He appeared five thousand years ago, during the Battle of Kuruksetra, before that, and still He's famous. Not only famous in India, but He's famous all over the world. In each, every language, the "Krsna" word is there, dictionary. He's also stated as "Hindu God." But Krsna is not Hindu god or Muslim God. He's God. God is neither Hindu nor Muslim nor Christian. God is God. So Krsna is Bhagavan. Svayam Bhagavan.
