Lord Krishna



Who is Krishna God in Hinduism? What is the significance of Lord Krishna vis-à-vis all the sacred Scriptures of Hinduism. What is the role of Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita? Did Krishna ever exist? These are some of the questions I receive through the Internet often.

Why is it that we name Krishna as Lord Krishna and not God Krishna? What is the underlying truth? Can any mortal human being be named as Lord Krishna? Commonly we only address almighty creator as Lord and never a human being. Of all the spiritual seekers, Saints and sages Lord Krishna finds no mention anywhere. Lord Krishna right from the beginning of his life had supernatural powers. Powers that defied all logic and understanding! It was as if the almighty God himself had manifested in the human form as Lord Krishna.

The prime reason why Lord Krishna is treated as an Avatar of the era! Whatever powers Lord Krishna exercised even at a very young age were not acquired by him in his present life. He was the only human being of his times whom everybody respected and loved. He was a phenomenon in himself. His extraordinary powers of adjudicating disputes amongst kings and the ordinary had no parallel. Lord Krishna in fact set his foot on Mother Earth for a prime purpose and that was upholding the dharma. The situation in the times of Lord Krishna was almost similar to as we find today (in the present kali yoga). Total chaos and disorder prevailed everywhere. Dharma was required to be firmly reestablished.

It was not within the powers of man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed who would have made it possible. Even an enlightened one could not have set the dharma right. It was at this juncture that Lord Krishna gave the famous doctrine of Bhagavad Gita to Pandava King Arjuna.


The forces of evil represented by the Kauravas and the godly forces represented by the Pandavas stood facing each other in the battle of Mahabharata. Both Kauravas and Pandavas were related to each other. The Pandava King Arjuna was finding it difficult to fight his brethren. He was feeling absolutely demoralized and dissatisfied with life.
The hopelessness with which the Pandava King Arjuna was conducting the affairs of his kingdom made Lord Krishna gave the famous sermon of Bhagavad Gita. Lord Krishna exhorted upon Pandava King Arjuna to face the enemy no matter what.

Lord Krishna explained upon the virtues of fighting the enemy. Lord Krishna stressed upon the fact that it was his duty as a King to fight the enemy. It was not a personal fight and it would be treated as cowardice by the countrymen. No amount of justification and convincing could make Pandava King Arjuna relent. He was bent upon not fighting the enemy which consisted of his relatives and friends.

When every logistical argument failed... Lord Krishna preached to Pandava King Arjuna the concept behind Bhagavad Gita. He enumerated that the bodily existence of a human being carries no value in the cosmic system. According to him our soul atman within has taken the body to purify itself of the dross contained within.

The death of body carries no meaning. One who is our uncle or a friend in this life may have been my parents in the earlier lives. The justification of not wanting to attack the enemy never stood any ground. Lord Krishna put forward the plea that everything happens as per the wishes of God. human beings have their role to play based upon the residual balance of karma of the previous lives. If Pandava King Arjuna was required to fight the enemy... then King Arjuna was duty-bound to do that. His freewill carried no meaning in the world of souls atmans. As per Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita, every King merely represents his country and his personal interests do not come into play while facing the enemy head-on.


Lord Krishna further exhorted that in the next life... no one knows what shall be our relationship with those whom we call our friends and relatives in present life. Then why desist from fighting the enemy at large!
The complex story of relationship of the body with the soul atman within was explicitly explained by Lord Krishna to Pandava King Arjuna. Slowly the real truth of life dawned upon Pandava King Arjuna. He realized the gravity of words being stated by Lord Krishna. By the time Lord Krishna had completed the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita... Pandava King Arjuna was not only prepared to fight the enemy but was determined to defeat them.

Lord Krishna emphasized to King Arjuna that this fight is not between two enemies. It shall be a fight between dharma and adharma and dharma is bound to win. In the domain of God there is no place for adharma continuing for a long period of time.


Eventually Pandava King Arjuna realized his folly and the fight between dharma and adharma was fought bravely by the Pandavas in the battle of Mahabharata in Kurushetra.
To state that either one the battle would be a misnomer for on the earthly domain there were dead bodies spread all over. It was totally a ghastly sight. No doubt Dharma had defeated the evil forces of adharma but a very heavy price had to be paid by both sides.

The battle of Mahabharata... a fight between the godly forces and the evil is what Bhagavad Gita is all about! The crucial role of soul atman in the journey of life has been detailed in the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita by Lord Krishna. Difficult to digest by earthly human beings... the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita details everything a serious seeker of spirituality would want to know while on the path towards God.


Summarizing above... Ever since the four Vedas became available to mankind, Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine put forward by Lord Krishna was like all the four Vedas condensed together. The knower of Bhagavad Gita was not further required to assimilate the teachings of the four Vedas.
If one understood the crux of wisdom contained in the Bhagavad Gita... the journey of the soul atman would come to an end. The doctrine of Bhagavad Gita is sufficient for any human being to complete the journey of life in totality. Having learnt of the wisdom contained in the Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine put forward by Lord Krishna... one can gain enlightenment and finally salvation within present life.

This in essence was the final message conveyed by Lord Krishna to King Arjuna. Lord Krishna repeatedly exhorted upon the fact that, the ultimate goal of any human being gaining enlightenment and finally salvation... cause for decay and dying of a body must never disturb one. It is only sensual attachments and Moha (affection for your near and dear ones) which prolong the journey of a human being on Mother Earth. Lord Krishna emphasized upon theory of karma that every human being was duty-bound to do his part. The fruits of all the karma as per Lord Krishna never belonged to one. The fruits always and ever belonged to our soul atman within.

Lord Krishna emphasized upon the fact that it is our soul atman that has taken the body and never otherwise. No body can ever manifest a soul atman within. Lord Krishna stated that without a soul atman... body was practically an inert matter. According to Lord Krishna when everything belonged to our soul atman within... why fear the unknown? Our part of the job is continuing doing our karma and leaving the fruits for the soul atman within.
