सर्वं विष्णुमयम्

यावद्वत्सपवत्सकाल्पकवपुर्यावत्कराङ्घ्र्यादिकम्
यावद्यष्टिविषाणवेणुदलशिग्यावद्विभूषाम्बरम्‌।
यावच्छीलगुणाभिधाकृतिवयो यावद्विहारादिकम्
सर्वं विष्णुमयं गिरोऽङ्गवदजः सर्वस्वरूपो बभौ॥१०-१३-१९॥
—श्रीमद्भागवते दशमस्कन्धे त्रयोदशोऽध्यायः
yāvadvatsapavatsakālpakavapuryāvatkarāṅghryādikam
yāvadyaṣṭiviṣāṇaveṇudalaśigyāvadvibhūṣāmbaram|
yāvacchīlaguṇābhidhākṛtivayo yāvadvihārādikam
sarvaṁ viṣṇumayaṁ giro’ṅgavadajaḥ sarvasvarūpo babhau||10-13-19||
—śrīmadbhāgavate daśamaskandhe trayodaśo’dhyāyaḥ
This is a beautiful description of Krishna’s Brahma Mohana leela, describing how Krishna assumed the forms of the various cowherds, calves, flutes, sticks, lunch boxes, etc. pervading everything (sarvaṁ viṣṇumayaṁ)
Exactly like the cowherd boys, the tender bodies of the calves, exactly to the hands, legs and limbs, [not only the bodies, but] exactly like their bugles, flutes, lunch boxes, sticks etc., exactly like their ornaments and clothes, exactly with their character, features, attributes and body features; exactly their tastes/amusements; everything [in every detail], embodiments of Lord Vishnu, with voices exactly ike theirs, Lord Krishna (ajaḥ) created everything in detail as Himself, [without any change].
