unlimited potencies

How much potency God possess? Majority of people are unaware of the supreme potency of the lord.
In fact God means Bhagavan in Sanskrit and it means the possessor of six opulence in full. They are beauty , strength, knowledge,  fame , renunciation and  wealth. In fact God is -
THE MOST POWERFUL,
THE MOST FAMOUS,
THE MOST WEALTHY,
THE MOST KNOWLEDGEBLE,
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL,
THE MOST RENOUNCE

 "God has unlimited potencies, but learned scholars, saintly persons, they have not rejected potencies, because they cannot be. There are certain philosophers, they are of opinion that God has no potency. But that is not fact. From Vedic information we see potency. What is that? How to understand the potency? The potency, you can understand. Just like from the fire you have got two potencies: heat and light. Nobody can deny it. Similarly, as fire is placed in one place but it expands its potencies heat and light... That is within our experience. It is not very difficult. Similarly, the sun also... Everyone can see that the sun planet is a big planet, the biggest planet. Or star, as somebody says. Whatever it may be, it is lying in one corner of the sky. But it expands its potency throughout the universe. The sunshine is distributed all over the sky, all over the planetary system. And similarly, heat also. We are feeling 99,000,000 miles away... Is that ninety-nine miles? What is that? Scientists say?
Devotees: Ninety-three.
Prabhupada: Ninety-three million miles away from us; still, we are feeling scorching heat, 120 degree, 135 degree. In Middle East the temperature the temperature is 135 degrees. It is impossible to stay on the surface of the globe. One goes down to the earth. So potency is there. If in material thing like the sun -- sun is a material thing; it has got so much potency -- so how much potencies the Supreme Personality of Godhead got? That is called inconceivable potency. Acintya, beyond your perception. He has got that potency."
