Why Krishna Did Not Respond To Brahma’s Prayers by Srila Vishvanatha Chakravarti Thakura
Lord Krishna was playing exactly like an innocent young cowherd boy in Vrindavana. When the four-headed Brahma offered prayers the Lord maintained His role as a young cowherd boy and thus remained silent before Brahma. Krishna’s silence indicates the following thoughts: “Where did this four-headed Brahma come from? What is he doing? What are these words he keeps on speaking? I am busy looking for My calves. I am just a cowherd boy and do not understand all this.” Lord Brahma had considered Lord Krishna an ordinary cowherd boy and had treated Him as such. After accepting Brahma’s prayers, Krishna continued to play as a cowherd boy and thus did not answer the four-headed Brahma. Rather, Krishna was more interested in rejoining His cowherd boyfriends for the picnic lunch on the bank of the Yamuna river.
