SB 1.11 - Kṛṣṇa's reciprocation with people

Lord Kṛṣṇa approached and offered due honor and respect to each and every one of the friends, relatives and citizens who came to receive Him. The Lord reciprocates with all just as it behooves (yathā-vidhi). The Lord is always attentive to all the matters of His pure devotees. To those who consider Him impersonal, the Lord also does not show any personal interest. He satisfies everyone in terms of one’s development of spiritual consciousness. The Lord greeted everyone present by bowing His head to sages like Garga, exchanging greetings with elders of Yadu clan, embracing, shaking hands, looking and smiling, giving assurances and awarding benedictions even to the lowest in rank. He granted fearlessness to one and all. All living beings are separated parts and parcels of the Lord and no one is alien by His eternal relation. Such pure living beings are graded differently in terms of contamination of the modes of material nature, but the Lord is equally affectionate to all. And this was seen here in Kṛṣṇa’s reciprocation with whoever came to receive Him.
