By His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedānta Swami Prabhupāda
Our only asset should be the lotus feet of Krishna along with Radharani. Madana-mohana (Krishna) is so beautiful that He is more attractive than the Cupid. Madana means Cupid.
Cupid is supposed to be the most beautiful person within the universe, but Krishna is still more beautiful. Kandarpa-koti-kamanīya-viśesa-śobham [Bs. 5.30]. That is described in the śāstra.
When Krishna was present, we know from the śāstra or from the evidences that Krishna was attractive to so many gopīs. The gopīs were the most beautiful women, and Krishna was attractive to them -not only to the gopīs but also to the 16,108 queens of Krishna. So just imagine how much beautiful was Krishna. Therefore His name is Krishna. He is attractive to everyone. Jayatam suratau pangor mama. So why should He not be attractive to fallen souls like us? So that is the position of Krishna.
