TRANSLATION

The fifty qualities of Lord Krishna were all present in his body.

PURPORT

In the Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu, the transcendental qualities of Sri Krishna are mentioned. Among these, fifty are primary (ayam neta su-ramyangah, etc.), and in minute quantity they were all present in the body of Sri Haridasa Pandita. Since every living entity is a part of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, all fifty of these good qualities of Sri Krishna are originally minutely present in every living being. Due to his contact with material nature, these qualities are not visible in the conditioned soul, but when one becomes a purified devotee, they all automatically manifest themselves. This is stated in Srimad-Bhagavatam (5.18.12), as mentioned in the text below.
