“O conqueror of wealth [Arjuna], there is no Truth superior to Me. Everything rests upon Me, as pearls are strung on a thread.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-gita, 7.7)
Friend1: Krishna creates the entire world.
Friend2: Technically, it is Vishnu.
Friend1: Yes, I know, but He is an expansion of the Supreme Lord.
Friend2: Right, the same person.
Friend1: I also know that it is done effortlessly.
Friend2: While lying down in rest.
Friend1: Exhaling creates the many universes and inhaling brings them back into Him.
Friend2: Dissolution. Destruction.
Friend1: Vishnu is also the maintainer.
Friend2: Within the material world, He plays that role. Brahma takes the ingredients of goodness, passion and ignorance to generate the different kinds of suits. These are the 8,400,000 species. Lord Shiva is called upon to destroy when the time is right. Vishnu is there maintaining all along.
