saying... whatever the belief... there has never existed a human
being called Vishnu! Lord Vishnu is simply an attribute of God Almighty
termed Brahman in Hinduism. Lord Vishnu is part of Hindu Trinity
of gods. Lord Vishnu is the maintainer of the cosmic system.
is considered incarnation of Vishnu as Lord Krishna was an Avatar
of his era... God manifest in human form! And the purpose of an
Avatar of an era is... maintaining the system back to its pedestal!
Lord Krishna imparted the wisdom of Bhagavad Gita to King Arjuna
to re-establish Dharma (righteousness) as chaos had overtaken Dharma
It is not within
the capability of a man God... a human God like Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed to re-establish Dharma!
Dharma (righteousness) can only be maintained by a messiah... an
Avatar of his era! Convinced by the teachings of Lord Krishna...
King Arjuna finally succeeded in rooting adharma (lawlessness) in
the war of Mahabharata.
And who is an
Avatar... an Avatar is a combination of a man God... one who has
gained enlightenment and Chanakya (the most able administrator in
the history of mankind). Chanakya laid to rest in a single day hundred
kings in order to save the lives of thousands of soldiers and countrymen.
All the hundred kings were got poisoned in a single day.
As per Bhagavad
Gita... for saving the lives of many if a single murder is committed...
it shall never be termed as sin!
was born an ordinary mortal... yet gained the powers of an Avatar...
a messiah! Vishnu is part of God Almighty... an attribute of God
Almighty! There is no comparison between Lord Vishnu and Lord Krishna.
One is the manifest self... the other simply an attribute for describing
God Almighty... for detailing the greatness of Brahman... the Almighty
The only reason
Lord Krishna is termed an incarnation of Vishnu is his re-establishing
Dharma (righteousness) on Mother Earth! He finally succeeded in
getting order back in the chaos spread world over! Re-establishing
Dharma required mammoth efforts... it could have been possible only
under the guidance of Lord Krishna... never otherwise!
The wisdom contained
in sacred scriptures can never be understood literally. Bhagavad
Gita contains 700 shlokas (verses). Bhagavad Gita is available for
$.40 (Rs 20/=) across most railway stations of India yet, how many
fathom the depth of wisdom contained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
If we seriously
desire traveling path of jnana yoga... venturing into the uncharted
territory of spirituality... we have to assimilate the teachings
of Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita. There is no other remedy.
Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed... all gained enlightenment
in their lifetime following the teachings of Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
