Descriptions of Krishna
One of Krishna’s many names is adhokshaja, He who is beyond the material senses. God is a spiritual person, and to see Him we need spiritual vision. Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita that He covers Himself from the sight of the envious with a curtain of illusion (maya).
However, many Vedic writings, especially the Srimad-Bhagavatam, contain detailed descriptions of Krishna by His devotees. They say He has a stunningly beautiful spiritual form (Krishna means "all-attractive"), He plays a flute, His complexion is like a dark rain cloud, He wears peacock feathers in His long, black, curly hair, the soles of His feet are decorated with auspicious symbols, His voice is like rumbling thunder, and a unique gem—Kaustubha—hangs around His neck, along with a garland of ever-fresh flowers, attracting bees humming Vedic hymns.
