Hare Krishna! In his purport to 63rd verse in Chapter 28 of the 4th Canto, his Divine Grace says 'For the Supreme Personality of Godhead, however there is no difference between the body and the soul. He is completely soul. He has no material body." In many other places he states that whenever the Lord descends/manifests he does so in his transcendental body which is imperishable and impervious. How is it then possible for an ordinary hunters arrow to pierce his foot? During his performance of various heroic feats and also on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, he is wounded by the arrows of his opponents. There are poetic descriptions of the beauty of his face decorated with drops of blood. Please enlighten me as to this point. I am not asking due to lack of faith or doubt. This point is one among many that comes up when discussing with non-devotees. So I am interested in knowing the proper answer.
