”(Lord Sri Krsna asked) You look very pleasing having such a shining wonderful looking body that looks like a demigod’s body. Who are you? How did you obtain this body and who forced you to take such an abominable low birth?”

PURPORT BY SRI KRSNA BALARAM SWAMIJI
Lord Krsna is named as svarat, all cognizant, in Srimad Bhagavatam. But because gudham param brahman manusya lingam (Gopalatapini Sruti), “The Supreme Lord Himself has appeared in an incognito form looking like a human being”, is why although He knows past, present and future, He is inquiring from the transformed person. Not only the Vedic scriptures describe about reincarnation, the other scriptures such as the Bible (9.2 and 17:9-13) and the Koran (Sura 2:28) also points to reincarnation as well. Those who know the science of karma are aware that unless one makes a grievous mistake, one neither obtains, nor gets cursed to obtain a degraded birth. Even if a degraded person comes in connection to spiritual life, in the due course of serious spiritual practice, a transformation takes place, whereby one becomes completely transformed from a demoniac debauchee life to a demigod like devotee’s life. Seeing such a transformation even the Lord Himself becomes surprised, that is why He wants to hear from the transformed person.
