Differences Between the
Name and the Form of Krsna

Srila Thakur Bhaktivinode
From Jaiva Dharma, chapter 23

Vijaya: Are there any distinctions between
Krishna’s name and form?
Raghunath Das Babaji: There are no differences
whatsoever. However, there is one
unique, even mystical feature in this subject
:
Krishna’s name is more merciful than his form.
Offenses committed against the form [or the
deity] are never forgiven by Krishna; however,
even though Krishna does not forgive offenses
against his form, his holy name will forgive offenses
committed against his form as well as
his name. Therefore, one should understand
and remember the ten offenses against the
holy name. Then, one must meticulously avoid
committing these offenses, because one must
rise above nämäparädha in order to chant
suddha-harinäma. ·
