“We have no control over these threefold miseries. They are controlled by Krishna's maidservant, goddess Durga, who is material nature. She is not independent of Krishna.

“The word paramam is explained thus by Parashara Muni: one who is full in six opulences, who has full strength, full fame, wealth, knowledge, beauty and renunciation, is paramam, or the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

Therefore great sages like Parashara Muni have all accepted Krishna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead.” (Shrila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-gita, 10.1 Purport)
