is Krishna - Lord krisna
Why is krishna blue - krishna consciousness
If we ask who
is Krishna then most amongst us would say Lord Krishna is a Hindu
God... an embodiment of love and Dharma (righteousness). People
remember Krishna more as one who re-establishes Dharma (righteousness)
on Mother Earth in face of absolute anarchy... a state of complete
If we go to
Vrindavan, Mathura in India and ask who is Krishna... perhaps one
may not feel asking anything! Vrindavan, Mathura, India is the birthplace
of Lord Krishna... one who has always been considered as the doer
of mankind... the harbinger of love for humanity to its extreme!
In Vrindavan one need not ask, "Who is Krishna"... all
is visible on the faces of people all over!
ever since young age indulged in tasks that were not only mammoth
in size but always stood for pure love and Dharma (righteousness)!
Wherever there was evil, Lord Krishna was there to exterminate it
even as a child. Lord Krishna was born with a purpose... to re-establish
Dharma (righteousness) in the face of all adversities!
When the fate
of mankind reaches a stage when even man gods like Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed would fail... the coming
of an avatar (God manifest in human form) becomes inevitable! Lord
Krishna was an avatar of his era... a manifestation of God in human
In his childhood
Krishna is always depicted as a child eating butter! This demonstrates
that Krishna was always after the ultimate result... never the ephemeral
fantasies! Krishna devouring butter simply signifies that to fathom
the intricacies of life we need to churn the workings of ephemeral
world... only then butter... the end result becomes available!
always been depicted as one with blue body! And what does this blue
body denote? Lord Shiva... the most powerful attribute of God Almighty
is denoted with a blue-collar around his neck... rather a blue neck!
What does this all signify in spiritual terms? The blue body...
a blue neck simply means that for humanity to survive... the poison
of society is usurped by the gods to be!
In Hindu mythology it has been stated that Samudra manthan is an
essential part of life! In absence of Samudra manthan (ocean churning)...
one simply could not separate good from evil... Dharma from Adharma!
It is only by churning of thoughts in our brain... human beings
finally overcame karma and reached the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).
thousands of thoughts pass through our brain. Inherently human beings
based on their intellect churned through these thoughts at unimaginable
speeds... in the melee one precipitated nectar and also poison.
Nectar is representative of all good things in life... the result
of a sunny disposition and godly thinking... result of positive
from all negative thinking that human beings invoke most of time!
For serious travelers of spirituality distinguishing between the
two... nectar and poison is essential! As the poison simply cannot
be done away with... it accumulates in the neck giving it blue color...
and for an avatar to remove the entire poison from humanity... the
whole body becomes blue!
Blue color in the body precipitates from negative thoughts and nectar...
the vital elixir of life makes one reach the stage of enlightenment
and finally salvation. The body of man gods like Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed is never depicted in blue...
why? It is for the simple reason that all man gods were preachers...
never protectors of the society!
the stage of enlightenment... the stage of kaivalya jnana... one
can disseminate the wisdom gained on spiritual path to masses at
large! But in times of strife... when Adharma (lawlessness) is peaking...
it is only one with powers of an avatar (God manifest in human form)
who sets things right in the society!
us... an ordinary mortal dons the mantle of an avatar of the era!
Symbolically we say an avatar is God manifest in human form. Truthfully
every avatar is born an ordinary mortal... yet, one manifests the
power of God Almighty... the inhibited supreme power of the cosmos!
By forgiving some... by punishing some... this avatar of an era
finally reestablishes Dharma (righteousness).
In the spiritual world... in the field of spirituality nothing can
be understood literally! Every book of mythology... every sacred
Scripture has something to convey! It is only by following the uncharted
path of spirituality with utmost sincerity... one finally understands...
assimilates wisdom contained therein!
In simpler terms
if we ask who is Krishna... the answer would be... truth personified
in human form! Any human being who walks the path of absolute truthfulness
in every stage of life... reaches the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) and finally administers the affairs of humanity at large
by becoming an avatar... God manifest in human form!
Yuga when it was a period of total strife came Lord Krishna! In
present times when society has reached its lowest ebb... people
await with fervor the coming of Bhagavan Kalki... an avatar of present
era! Bhagavan Kalki would be an ordinary mortal yet, possessing
the powers of Lord Krishna... an avatar of Dwapar Yuga!
The system of God is not disordered at any stage... nor are there
any free lunches in the system of God! As is the karma performed...
accordingly the results! If Bhagavan Kalki indulges in freeing the
society of all its ills... one needs digesting the ills... The poison
of the society!
This does not
mean the body of Bhagavan Kalki would turn blue... it simply denotes
that Bhagwan Kalki would have to forgive some... punish others!
The level of patience, persistence and perseverance that needs to
be exercised by Bhagavan Kalki cannot be perceived by normal human
beings... it is phenomenal... Truly mammoth!
Only by forgiving
people... by punishing those who have erred in their decisions can
Dharma (righteousness) be reestablished... never otherwise! The
level of forgiveness that needs to be practiced at the level of
avatar is beyond comprehension of most human beings... something
that humanity perceives with reverence and awe!
One very important aspect of Hindu God Krishna is... Jainism believes
in fact that Lord Krishna never reached the stage of enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana)! This is a total misnomer... a fact that results
from absolute ignorance! Lord Krishna was much above Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed... he was not a man God
but an avatar of his era (God manifest in human form).
fact is that all man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ;
Prophet Mohammed, Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana
gained their enlightenment by assimilating the pearls of wisdom
contained in sacred Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given
to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata between
Pandavas and Kauravas!
of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Krishna is the end
of all! With passage of time nothing in Bhagavad-Gita becomes redundant!
At any given moment of time all principles laid out in Bhagavad-Gita
withstand the truths of time! The facts of every Scripture need
to be interpreted based on developments of science as of today!
If during times of Lord Krishna... the battle was fought sitting
in chariots... with bows and arrows... we do not contemplate fighting
our enemy in present times with old medieval Armory! Most human
beings on mother Earth even today interpret the Scriptures ritually
and literally... the prime reason why human beings failed to connect
to teachings of sacred Scriptures... particularly Bhagavad-Gita!
If we desire
understanding the gist of Bhagavad-Gita as detailed by Lord Krishna...
we need to travel the spiritual path with all sincerity practicing
patience, persistence and perseverance at its level best! Following
the path of absolute truthfulness throughout is a bare necessity
of the spiritual path... field of spirituality!
Devoid of truthfulness
at every stage of life most human beings failed to digest what the
Scriptures stated! Mounted with a bloated ego... wanton desires
and greed for materialistic riches most human beings desired gaining
enlightenment and salvation standing on the pedestal of materialistic
riches! We simply cannot view the whole of New York standing on
first floor of Empire state building!
For having a look at entire length and breadth of Chicago city I
had to climb to the top... the signature room on 95th floor of John
Hancock Center, Chicago downtown, USA! Enlightenment and salvation
is not that easily gained. Bhagavad-Gita... the most apt doctrine
on path of spirituality... the words of wisdom stated by Lord Krishna
is nothing more than nectar available in pure form!
But how many
people world over fathom the depth of wisdom contained in sacred
Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism? For realizing absolute truths of life...
for knowing our inner self... for reaching the portals of God Almighty...
the kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism) one needs fathoming
the gist of Bhagavad-Gita in its entirety.
It is the contents
of Bhagavad-Gita for which humanity remembers Lord Krishna... an
avatar of his era! In absence of Bhagavad-Gita mankind would simply
be lost in the maze of numerous Scriptures available world over!
Before coming of Lord Krishna existed voluminous Vedas and Upanishads!
With the coming of Lord Krishna... the principal gist of Vedas was
reduced to Vedanta (end of Vedas). Bhagavad-Gita is also termed
Vedanta... the end of Vedas! With the coming of Lord Krishna the
path of spirituality became simplified. It became much easier to
understand the intricacies of spirituality... the hidden ingredients
of the spiritual path!
Krishna, simply worshiping Lord Krishna either as a child prodigy
or one who administers the sayings of Bhagavad-Gita does not yield
anything! The gist of Bhagavad-Gita... the sayings of Lord Krishna
can only be fathomed by traveling the path of jnana yoga... the
path of absolute wisdom!
Nothing in the
field of spirituality can be understood ritually! For understanding
Bhagavad-Gita one need not go to a temple, church or mosque! Remaining
wherever we are... whatever the stage one can fathom the pearls
of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita by following the path of absolute
truthfulness always and ever! One also need not change to Hindu
God Almighty can always be reached by following the gist of Bhagavad-Gita
in all sincerity... but God Almighty can never be reached via the
path of religion... the path of rituals! Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa
and Maharishi Ramana started their journey towards God via the path
of bhakti yoga but subsequently switched to path of jnana yoga...
path of absolute wisdom!
can only be reached via the path of jnana yoga... never bhakti yoga
or karma yoga! It is Bhagavad-Gita that tells us how to travel the
path of jnana yoga. Bhagavad-Gita also teaches us how to distinguish
between jnana yoga, bhakti yoga and karma yoga. If we sincerely
desire reaching end of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation...
we have no other alternative than to travel the path advocated by
Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism!
is the most revered entity in Hinduism! Followers of Hinduism understand
the significance of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita! By remaining
immersed in Krishna consciousness... by following the tenets of
wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita human beings finally reached the
kingdom of God... the abode of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism).
Worshiping Krishna does not mean anything in the spiritual world.
Worshiping is a form of ritual... that is limited to religion! For
understanding the truth of life... for reaching our soul Atman...
the spirit within one need traveling the spiritual path... not the
path of religion! The path of spirituality is best traveled following
Bhagavad-Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna!
world over doubt whether Lord Krishna ever existed? Can such people
ever be expected to travel the spiritual path... a path that requires
practicing patience, persistence and perseverance to its extreme!
The path of spirituality can only be traveled by having absolute
faith in God Almighty... absolute faith in Lord Krishna... absolute
faith in Bhagavad-Gita!
Our goal of
life must be fixed... chances of sway can never be minimal... they
have to be zero! For reaching God in ones lifetime of 70 to 80 years...
we have to be firm in our dealings with God. We have to exhibit
absolute faith in God Almighty all the time! This is how all man
gods gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime averaging
70 to 80 years!
Ever since the Big Bang occurred and all souls atmans scattered
all over the cosmos at unimaginable speeds... the primary goal of
every soul Atman became regaining its lost original pure prime pristine
form at the earliest! It is only by manifesting the human form every
soul Atman finally regains its original lost prime pristine primordial
form... never otherwise!
The human form
is reached by our soul Atman by crossing through a maze of 7.3 million
manifestations in the insect, plant and animal form! In the human
form alone we have 1.1 million manifestations... an earthly life
cycle of 12.4 million years to reach the stage of enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).
In the field
of spirituality there is absolutely no hurry yet, we do not know
what we shall be in the next manifestation... why not travel the
spiritual path now! The present human form is limited to one life
span of 70 to 80 years... in the next manifestation by our soul
Atman the physical form shall change based on residual balance of
karma of present life after death of body?
The doctrine of karma acts as the accountant general of the cosmic
system... maintaining accounts of each and every soul Atman in the
cosmos... right from the first manifestation to the last... the
8.4 millionth manifestation when human beings gained enlightenment
(kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!
At the time
of death of body whatever the residual balance of karma... the same
becomes the opening balance for next manifestation... the new journey
of life! The destiny of human beings always lay in our hands still;
we continue blaming God Almighty for our woes! Human beings shape
their destiny every second of life. As we perform our karma according
shall be our destiny!
complex process of karma has some hidden ingredients lest wise human
beings as they are would interpolate or extrapolate the basic principles
of life! To stop human beings from doing so... to stop human beings
from playing with destiny... God Almighty made a particular portion
of karma fructify now or many manifestations henceforth!
This hidden ingredient of karma is termed Prarabdha karma... that
can fructify now, a few days from now, a few months from now, a
few years from now or many manifestations henceforth! None knows
when Prarabdha karma fructifies... the prime reason why some people
succumb to their fate resulting from resultant bad Prarabdha karma
from previous manifestations!
What if positive
Prarabdha karma from previous manifestations fructified all of a
sudden... it results in winning a lottery or materialistic possessions
abound... something totally unrelated to the karma of present world!
If we truly
desire understanding in life... who is Krishna... we need to fathom
the depth of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita of Hinduism! It is
only by assimilating pearls of wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita
I finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age.
When 11 years
of age I had a deep-rooted desire to find and meet God in this very
life. By 13 years of age my simple desire turned to firm conviction...
come whatever may... in this very life I shall see and meet God!
25 years of yoga meditation I finally reached the end of cosmic
life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation when I reached the stage
of self realization... God realization!
I was born in a Jain family yet; the principles of Bhagavad-Gita
are the foremost for me! I do not place Lord Krishna above Mahavira,
Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed simply out of fancy...
having realized God I have understood the intricacies of the spiritual
world. Ever since six years of age I traveled the path of absolute
path of absolute truthfulness had its merits. I could hear the sweet
small inner voice that seemed to come from within my heart... the
voice of my soul Atman! Dictated by the promptings of my soul Atman
I finally cleared all hurdles of the spiritual path and reached
the stage of self realization in 1993!
For me Lord
Krishna is the epitome of spirituality... the end of spirituality!
There is nothing beyond Lord Krishna that needs knowing in the cosmic
world. Lord Krishna was truly an avatar of his era... God manifest
in human form! In the present Kali Yuga... the Dark Age... the coming
of Bhagavan Kalki... an avatar of present era would be truly enlightening!
God bless all!
