Most important: to argue with KRSNa. To disagree.

Kuruxetra yes, Kuruxetra no, SubhadrArjun yes, SubhadrArjun no, etc.

If Shri Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead - what then is Shri Balarama for?

In Srimad-Bhagavatam, 10.8.22, Srila Prabhupada writes:


"Thereafter, Lord Krsna, along with Balarama, began to play with the other children of the cowherd men, thus awakening the transcendental bliss of the cowherd women."




"The word saha-ramah, meaning “along with Balarama,” is significant in this verse. In such transcendental pastimes, Krsna is the chief hero, and Balarama provides additional help."

Lord Balarama's position is servitor Godhead, and if you go in Caitanya-lila, with Balarama being Nityananda He is the Supreme Guru.


That is what I remember reading in books from previous acaryas.
