How is it that Krishna is nondifferent from His qualities?

by Laxmimoni dasi

Krishna and His qualities are nondifferent, but Sri Krishna is also more than the sum of His qualities because His qualities are always increasing. It is explained in the Invocation to Sri Isopanishad, that Krishna is more than the sum of everything that comes from Him. This involves some transcendental math (one plus one equals infinity and one minus one equals one), because even as you isolate each of Krishna's qualities and then add them all together, you still won't get all of Krishna!

What I'm trying to say is "they are Him, but He is not just them." Hope that makes sense to you ;-).
