Krishna – The Source of incarnation

According to Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī’s statement, in accordance with authoritative sources, Lord Kṛṣṇa is the source of all other incarnations. It is not that Lord Kṛṣṇa has any source of incarnation. All the symptoms of the Supreme Truth in full are present in the person of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa, and in the Bhagavad-gītā the Lord emphatically declares that there is no truth greater than or equal to Himself.

*The Awakened knowledge*

With transcendental knowledge, transcendental love automatically develops. As soon as Vasudeva could understand Kṛṣṇa, he felt some affection for Kṛṣṇa and transcendental knowledge side by side. That’s what Prabhupāda says in the purport: “Within Vasudeva’s heart, affection for his son and knowledge of the Supreme Lord’s transcendental nature both awakened.” For those who are directly in Kṛsṇa’s pastimes, they may – without knowledge – and they feel some attraction to Kṛṣṇa.

The Material world – Krishna’s Resort.

In the material world everyone is under the control of time. We are certainly under the control of time, even great demigods like Brahma are under the control of time. In the spiritual world, time does not pass. There it is eternally present. In the material world., the Holy Dham in the material world is something like a resort area for Kṛṣṇa to come and visit to deliver the fallen souls of the universe.

Get into God Krishna

we cannot understand the Lord by our own speculation, by our own experimentation, this are revealed knowledge where the Lord Himself in one of His other expansions called vyasadeva has written down the vedas and has explained about himself. And from these explanations we can get a deeper insight into the personality of Godhead. It’s just like people… some people just go to the movies, and they would see, the different movie stars, and then there are people who are really into it, they buy all this movie magazines, film magazines, then they tell all about the private life of all the movie stars, and they get into that, that is kind of a crude example but they are really into it… they are really into the particular person, then they wanna know all the things about the person, I mean that’s a very frivolous kind of magazines, and things like that, but it is at least in the sense that if somebody is really into some person who really wants to know the person, then they get into all, they want to know all the details.

Why do you worship Krishna as God?

Sometimes the Christian, when they go to India, they say, “Krishna was a married man, He had children, He was an ordinary person. He… Why do you worship Him as God?” They don’t understand, Krishna was not a ordinary person, He was God Himself, came down onto to the earth and He acted similar to human being because human beings are made in His image, so therefore there is a similarity. But after certain point it ends. One of the things, that…..Krishna He can unlimitedly expand Himself. Therefore He can have 16108 wives, and simultaneously He can be in each of the wive’s palaces, and He can be ah… accepting their service and reciprocating with them.

Unlimited potency of lord Hari

Unlimited potency of Hari

if a President is all powerful, does that mean that he can’t visit his prison house ? Even if this world is a minute fraction of the Lord’s potency, He certainly has the right… we can’t restrict Him, that He can’t come here. So they started to put, although they say that, some say that He is omnipotent, they start to put so many restrictions. And then if because the vedas say, how is He omnipotent?, that He has different expansions, that form of omnipotency that you cannot expand yourself unlimitedly, and each expansion has got the same potential as the other. That is certainly something that is extraordinary, that’s not something that anyone can do. So this is description, this is one of the unlimited potencies of the Lord, one of His great opulences.

The world’s way of Life

Krishna consciousness movement is dedicated to preserving Srila Prabhupada’s teachings; preserving his message and to spreading it all over the world. For the next 10000 years it’s predicted Lord Caitanya’s movement would become the world’s religion, world way of life. So we are dedicated to first implementing that and then maintaining it.

The Wonderful quality of the lord

Krishna is carrying that shoes of Nanda Maharaj on His head for His father. That is the wonderful quality of the Lord. That’s why also the avatar Krishna-Balaram, has been accepted by great acharyas as the original avatar, because these avatars contains the aspect that even Narayana doesn’t contains, since the original contain all the aspects, otherwise how is it original, it is not complete unless it contains everything. The incarnation of Krishna contains aspects which no other avatar contains. If there is no avatar, there is many things that Krishna Himself doesn’t contain. Therefore they have come to the conclusion that Krishna is the complete form. He is the original form. Om Krishna vai sachidananda gunah Krishna adi purusah Krishna purusotammah In the rig veda it is said that He is the adi purusa.
