Hare Krishna prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisences. All glories to Srila Prabhupad.

Many places i have come across the following lines in Srila Prabhupad books.Infact, Krsna book title itself is this.

"The supreme personality of godhead" or "The personality of godhead".

I would like to know the significance of this sentence over other descriptions of the Lord.

Yours servant,
Gurucharana dasa

Hare Krishna,

Since Lord Sri Krishna is cent percent Bhagavan (ete camsa kala pumsam, krsnas tu bhagavan svayam), He is addressed as “The Supreme Personality of Godhead”. Just like ‘fountainhead’, the tip of the fountain is the topmost in its height. He is like the original candle, from which many other candles (Visnu-tattvas) are lit, still Lord Sri Krishna’s position is unique.

Hare Krishna…
