Shri Krushna had made many others understand "who is he" -- Shri Narayana himself, supreme Brahman. But after revealing his real identity, he made them forget the revelation by using "Maya", the illusive power.

Reason maybe "the time was yet not right and those people had to yet go through their sufferings (prarabdha)". Examples being Yashoda, Devaki, Vasudev, Sudama, etc.
For Yashoda, it's mentioned in SB 10.8

But, to some others such as Arjuna, Bheeshma, Kunti, Akroor, Muchukunda, he didn't make them forget the truth. These people always knew the truth.

What might be the reason?

  • No, Krishna didn't made them (Yashoda, Devaki, Vasudev, Sudama) forget who is he. Can you please add any reference for concluding that Krishna made them forget?

  • I have heard it through a "satsang". Let me try to find a concrete ref in 'Bhagwat'. BTW, how did you come to the conclusion that he didn't make them forget? Till we find (or till we don't find after searching) the reference, both possibilities stand equal chance :-)

    @brahma Actually it starts from SB-10.44.51 but the exact verse which talks about maya is in SB-10.45.1-2
