Krsnas Tu Bhagavan Svayam

Krsnas Tu Bhagavan Svayam

30NOV2017 is the annirversary day commemorating the day that Srimad Bhagavad Gita was spoken by Lord Sri Krishna, about 5000 years ago. Anyone with some intelligence and purity, who has studied the Srimad Bhagavad-Gita and the scriptures of other religions will very clearly see that the Srimad Bhagavad-Gita is the word of God. All other scriptures are simply man made concoctions. This can be proven by the fact that there are so many very clear mistakes and contradictions in the non-Vedic scriptures. There are no clear mistakes nor contradictions in the Srimad Bhagavad-Gita.

Lord Krishna still remains the only seen and proven God, even after 5000 years since His last appearance in His original form. It’s due to ignorance and deception that people are deceived into following the unproven, unknown, unseen, and unknowable man made up gods.

Some Basic and Very Important Comparative Religion Knowledge

Some basic and very important comparative religion knowledge

The aim of this writing is to give people the truth based on the evidence and not speculations. The first pillar of Sanatan-Dharma is truthfulness. Hiding the truth or denying the truth is considered irreligion by Vedic standards. People who sincerely believe in God should accept and stand up for the truth, because the real God is for the truth only.

The truth will hurt those who have been deceived and lied to, because the knowledge given to them has been false. The genuine followers of God will accept the truth. The truth is determined by analyzing the evidence. Don’t just accept what you hear from others, without seeing the proof from the scriptures and their actions now and in the past. There are so many deceivers and liars in the world today, be aware.

  1. Which religions are founded by man, and which by God?
Sanatan-DharmaIn Sanskrit, Sanatan means eternal, and Dharma means religion or duty. Thus, as the name of the religion itself states, Sanatan-Dharma is eternal. It has no beginning and it has no end. This is the meaning of eternal in the English language.

God is eternal and thus anything that is eternal, comes from God. Sanatan-Dharma is from God.

ChristianityAny Christian can confirm that Jesus is the founder of Christianity. The Bible very clearly confirms that Jesus was a man and not God. Jesus himself declared that he was the son of God and not God.

Christianity is from a man.

IslamAny Muslim can confirm that Muhammad is the founder of Islam. They can also very clearly confirm that Muhammad was a man and not God.

Islam is from a man.

 

2. Who has seen God?
 

Sanatan-Dharma

 

Only in Sanatan-Dharma, there is a real, proven, and seen God. God is only described in the Vedic scriptures, His appearances, qualities, pastimes, how He creates and maintains, and so on. Millions of people have seen Lord Krishna and His incarnations.

God is only described in the scriptures of one religion and He has only been seen by the followers of one religions. This is because, God is One.

“My dear Arjuna, only by undivided devotional service can I be understood as I am, standing before you, and can thus be seen directly. Only in this way can you enter into the mysteries of My understanding.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 11.54)

“The whole cosmic order is under Me. Under My will it is automatically manifested again and again, and under My will it is annihilated at the end.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.8)

Christianity“It is true that no one has ever seen God at any time.” (John 1:18)

Based on the Bible, no one has even seen the Christian God.

 

Islam

“No vision can grasp Him.” (Quran 6:103)

“Whoever claimed that (the Prophet) Muhammad saw his Lord, is committing a great fault, for he only saw Gabriel in his genuine shape in which he was created covering the whole horizon.” (Sahih al-Bukhari 3234)

Based on the Quran and Hadiths (actions and teachings of the Prophet), no one has ever seen the Islamic God, not even the sole founder of Islam.

 

3. Which religions are recently created and which is eternal?
Sanatan-DharmaAs the name of the religion itself states, Sanatan-Dharma is eternal. This is also very clearly confirmed by the scriptures of Sanatan-Dharma, which are known as the Vedic scriptures. Based on the Bhagavad-Gita and other Vedic scriptures, Sanatan-Dharma is repeatedly re-established at the beginning of each cycle of creation and annihilation and many times within the cycles. The duration of each cycle is 311.040 trillion years and in the current cycle, Sanatan-Dharma was established 155.522 trillion years ago,

Sanatan-Dharma is eternal.

ChristianityAny Christian can confirm that Christianity is 2000 years old.

Christianity is not eternal.

IslamThe Quran and Muhammad are both the essentials of the Islamic faith. Since both did not exist before 1400 years ago, Islam is 1400 years old.Islam is not eternal.

 

4. The main scripture of the Religion which is claimed to come from God?
Sanatan-DharmaThe Bhagavad-Gita is the main scripture of Sanatan-Dharma. Bhagavad means ‘of God’, and Gita means ‘Song’. The Bhagavad-Gita means ‘The Song of God’.The Bhagavad-Gita is the only scripture which literally means ‘The word of God’.
ChristianityThe Bible is the only scripture of Christianity. In Greek, ‘Bibli’ means little books.The Bible does NOT mean ‘The word of God’.
IslamThe Quran is the only scripture of Islam. In Arabic, ‘Qara’ means to recite.The Quran does NOT mean ‘The word of God’.

 

5. Was the main scripture knowledge directly delivered by God?
Sanatan-DharmaThe Bhagavad-Gita was directly spoken by God in person from His own mouth.
ChristianityThe Bible was not directly delivered by God. The Christians claim the Bible statements were based on inspirations from God.
IslamThe Quran was not directly delivered by God. The Muslims claim every word of the Quran was transmitted by God to Angel Gabriel, who re-transmitted to Muhammad.
6. How many witnessed the main scripture being delivered by God?
Sanatan-DharmaMillions of people witnessed Lord Krishna speak the Bhagavad-Gita to Arjuna.
ChristianityNot Appicable.
IslamOnly one witness to the Quran being delivered, Muhammad.
7. How many times the main scripture was delivered by God?
Sanatan-DharmaBased on the evidence in the Vedic scriptures. The Bhagavad-Gita been spoken more than 18,000 times so far on this planet in the current cycle, directly by Lord Krishna in person. It has also been spoken in millions of other universes by Lord Krishna.
ChristianityBased on the evidence in the Bible. The Bible is a one of scripture. Delivered only once on this planet and it has NOT been delivered by the Christian God beyond this planet.
IslamBased on the evidence in the Quran/Hadiths. The Quran is a one of scripture. Delivered only once on this planet and it has NOT been delivered by the Islamic God beyond this planet.

 

8. How much knowledge from God?
Sanatan-DharmaThe Bhagavad-Gita (700 verses), Vedas (over 20,000 verses), 108 Upanishads (over 4000 verses), Ramayana (over 25,000 verses), 18 Puranas (400,000 verses), and Many others.There are more than a million verses in the scriptures of Sanatan-Dharma which come from God.
ChristianityThe Bible has 35,527 verses. No other knowledge from the Christian God.The Christian knowledge is limited to just one book.
IslamThe Quran has 6236 verses. No other knowledge from the Islamic God.The Islamic knowledge is limited to just one book.

 

9. Who compiled the knowledge into book(s)?
Sanatan-DharmaThe Vedic knowledge was compiled into thousands of books by God Himself. Lord Krishna in the form of Ved Vyasa is the compiler of all the Vedic scriptures.Sanatan-Dharma knowledge was directly compiled into books by God.
ChristianityThe Christian knowledge was compiled into one book by the followers of Jesus.The Bible was NOT directly compiled into a book by God.
IslamThe Hadiths (actions and teachings of the Islamic Prophet) confirm that the Quran was compiled into a book some years after the Prophet, by his followers.The Quran was NOT directly compiled into a book by God.

There is only one religion which is eternal and the name itself confirms this, Sanatan-Dharma.

There is only one religion where the knowledge is compiled by God Himself in person, the scriptures of Sanatan-Dharma.

There is only one religion where the knowledge is directly spoken by God Himself in person, the Bhagavad-Gita.

There is only one religion, where God is described and has been seen by millions of followers, Sanatan-Dharma.

There is only one religion, where millions of people witnessed the main scripture being delivered by God, Sanatan-Dharma.

Please add one more book to your children’s education study list

Please add one more book to your children’s education study list- The Bhagavad-Gita As It Is

It is a fact that most Hindus lack basic knowledge on the teachings of Sanatan-Dharma, and especially the children. It is also a fact that Abrahamic religion followers teach the Hindus about Sanatan-Dharma which is full of mistakes and lies and they also give false knowledge on their own Abrahamic religion teachings. The result of this is that Hindus are easy target for conversion to other religions. The Hindu children are easy targets for bullying at school due to their religion, because they don’t know anything. The children learn nothing about their religion from their parents and Temples.

It is the responsibility of the parents to give their children some basic Sanatan-Dharma knowledge, the Bhagavad-Gita is the essence of all Vedic knowledge and thus this book should be included in the study for the children. It is a fact that the children will study many hundreds of books to become engineers, doctors, IT professionals, lawyers. Will it hurt to add one more book to their study list? Add the Bhagavad-Gita As It Is.

Many Hindu parents spend more than $300,000 on their childrens education to make them into lawyers, engineers, and doctors. How much do they spend on their children’s spiritual development? ZERO? While it is important to study to get a job, and pay the bills. It is also important to engage in Bhakti unto Lord Krishna so that at the end of this short life, so one does not come back to this miserable planet, which is full of misery, disease, old age, death, and re-birth.

Where are the following people now?

Charles Darwin (the great scientist)
Albert Einstein (the great scientist)
Steve Jobs (IT professional)
and other great Lawyers, Doctors, and well educated people

Where has the material, education got them? Repeated birth and death, nothing else.

I am not saying don’t study or don’t become a lawyer, doctor, etc.. No. I am saying let the children study well, but also add Bhakti to their daily routine. Study of the Vedic scriptures like the Bhagavad-Gita is very important. Just add one more book to the hundreds your children will study.

“Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah”
Dharma protects those who protect Dharma (Mahabharata)

“Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend. Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.65-66)

I have studied world religions and can easily prove that ‘Krishna Tu Bhagavan Svayam’, meaning Krishna is the only God. All other so-called gods are unseen, unproven, invisible, unknown, undescribed, and un-knowable. This is because, God is One, and thus He is only described in the scriptures of only one religion, Sanatan-Dharma.

 

 

 

 

 

Basic Vedic Culture

Basic Vedic Culture

In the past at weddings, there were in many cases thousands of people invited for the wedding functions. The whole village/Town people were invited. This is the Vedic culture and tradition for weddings.

Now days only a few are invited at weddings.  The modern mentality is to have the wedding at the most expensive place and invite just a few, because it’s too expensive to invite many. The idea is to show off by having the wedding in an expensive venue. In many weddings, the couple families have known some people for more than 30 years, but they will not get invited, due to the limited mentality of inviting a few. For example, Instead of buying and giving 100 items to 100 people, 1 each. The modern mentality is to buy the same item but wrapped in very expensive wrapping paper and get only 10 items for the same cost as buying 100 items with no wrapping. Then give only to 10 people and forget the other 90 people. Everything is for showing off to others, no real feelings, nor love for anyone.

Why Were Marriages a Success in the Past?

Here is one practical answer.

In the past, marriages were a success, because everyone was invited and well taken care of. The result of this is that everyone blessed the couple with success and there was success. Now days, most friends/relatives are not invited and thus there are very few blessings and many curses from those who have not been invited. The result is failure, marriage problems and divorce.

On should hold a function at a reasonable cost venue and invite more people, instead of holding at very expensive venue and inviting only a few. Show love, not money spending power. It is love that will make people truly happy, not show of money spending power.

Believe it or not but blessings and cursing do work. The science behind this is that God satisfies our wishes and desires to certain degree. We should always bless others a healthy, peaceful, and spiritual life with God in the center. We should never curse others, even if they don’t invite you.

Serving People

The Vedic culture is that people should have the heart to want to serve people by inviting them, and feeding them.  Now days, some people have no heart. If a visitor calls, they are told not to come. In the past, it was normal for people to host more than 100 people for lunch/dinner. Now days if someone calls a friend and tells them that 20 are coming for lunch/dinner. The friend would have a heart attack, he cannot conceive serving just 20 people.

In the past, there were many who used to have the heart to feed the whole village/town on a regular basis at least once a year. Now days, for many, it’s beyond their wildest thinking to invite the whole village/town.

When Someone is Sick

If someone is sick, the Vedic culture is to visit them in person and not on silly face books, and do something to help them, like taking food items, and physically nursing them. Now days, when someone is sick, some people will simply phone and wish them speedy recovery. That’s all, there is no physical presence. Sweet words don’t help anyone, It’s the physical actions that help people.

Visiting Cement Buildings Results in Materialistic Mentality

In the past, people used to visit people, this is the Vedic culture. By visiting people, there is at least guidance from others which is very important. By visiting old people, one will get many good ideas on tackling life situations, because the old have been through it and they can save others a lot of hassle, time, money, and energy. Now days, most people have no interest in visiting people, they only want to visit cement buildings and Cities. Unfortunately, Cities and buildings give no guidance and only make the mind more materialistic. Everyone needs good guidance in life at every stage of his/her life. The guidance only comes from other people and not buildings and cities.

Conclusion

it’s due to the modern mentality that the lives of people have become more complex, high stress, non-compatible, and more disagreements in marriage, friendships, and business.

Compassion and service to others are two very important aspects of Vedic culture. By giving what one has to others is renunciation of material life, the qualification for entry to the spiritual manifestation. By serving others, one becomes humble, another qualification for entrance to the spiritual manifestation.

“Those who are free from false prestige, illusion and false association, who understand the eternal, who are done with material lust, who are freed from the dualities of happiness and distress, and who, unbewildered, know how to surrender unto the Supreme Person attain to that eternal kingdom. That supreme abode of Mine is not illumined by the sun or moon, nor by fire or electricity. Those who reach it never return to this material world.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.5-6)

The Prescribed Duties for Women

The Prescribed Duties for Women

In Sanatan-Dharma, the females are given the highest respects. The Vedic teaching is that the name of the wife must come before the name of the husband in announcements and invitations. Even the supreme person’s name, Lord Krishna, has to come after His eternal female consort’s name. For example, we say ‘Radha Krishna’ and never ‘Krishna Radha’.  ‘Laxmi  Narayan’, ‘Sita Ram’ and so on.

In some other religions, their scriptures clearly teach and their followers have a clear history of taking females captive and making them into sex slaves. This is considered most barbaric by Vedic standards.

The topmost devotees of Lord Krishna are all women, these are called Gopis. This is another proof of the high regard women have in Sanatan-Dharma.

There are some Vedic followers who treat women badly. Such people will never get away, they will be punished. Due to lack of preaching what is stated in the Vedic scriptures, people become corrupt and mistreat others.  It is the responsibility of Temples to teach people what is taught by the Vedic scriptures, and guide the public in the right direction. Otherwise the public becomes misguided and corrupt. Merely going to Temples does not make one pious nor religious, one must follow the instructions in the Vedic scriptures. Which is to behave properly and thus be kind to everyone, especially to the females. This is the Vedic teaching.

“One who is not envious but who is a kind friend to all living entities, who does not think himself a proprietor, who is free from false ego and equal both in happiness and distress, who is always satisfied and engaged in devotional service with determination and whose mind and intelligence are in agreement with Me-he is very dear to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12-13-14)

The Four Principles for all Women to Follow

“To render service to the husband, to be always favorably disposed toward the husband, to be equally well disposed toward the husband’s relatives and friends, and to follow the vows of the husband — these are the four principles to be followed by women described as chaste.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.11.25)
Personal and Household Duties for all Women

“A chaste woman must dress nicely and decorate herself with golden ornaments for the pleasure of her husband. Always wearing clean and attractive garments, she should sweep and clean the household with water and other liquids so that the entire house is always pure and clean. She should collect the household paraphernalia and keep the house always aromatic with incense and flowers and must be ready to execute the desires of her husband. Being modest and truthful, controlling her senses, and speaking in sweet words, a chaste woman should engage in the service of her husband with love, according to time and circumstances.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.11.26-27)

All Women Must be Religious

“When irreligion is prominent in the family, O Kṛṣṇa, the women of the family become polluted, and from the degradation of womanhood, O descendant of Vṛṣṇi, comes unwanted progeny.” (Bhagavad-Gita 1.40)

When women become irreligious or they have no real interest in religion, they create children who become corrupted and develop evil and materialistic mentalities. The Vedic women who have no Vedic knowledge, will fall prey to those who follow evil ideologies like taking women captive and making them into sex slaves. When humans develop atheistic and evil mentalities, they fall down into the material pool of animal existence. The existence of animals is proof of this, the souls in animal bodies were once in human bodies.

A father who is not religious and/or does not teach his children the Vedic principles, must keep one eye on his daughters and the other on his property, otherwise the evil people will take them.

“A chaste woman should not be greedy, but satisfied in all circumstances. She must be very expert in handling household affairs and should be fully conversant with religious principles. She should speak pleasingly and truthfully and should be very careful and always clean and pure. Thus a chaste woman should engage with affection in the service of a husband who is not fallen.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.11.28)

Women who Follow their Prescribed Duties will Go Back to the Spiritual Manifestation and live Eternally in Complete Bliss

“The woman who engages in the service of her husband, following strictly in the footsteps of the goddess of fortune, surely returns home, back to Godhead, with her devotee husband, and lives very happily in the Vaikuṇṭha planets. (Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.11.29)

Some religions actually teach that hell is full of women, this is the low regard they have for women. Sanatan-Dharma teaches that the women can become the topmost devotees of God, Lord Krishna. The Gopis are women and they are the topmost devotees of Lord Krishna. They live in complete bliss with God in the spiritual manifestation.

Who Can Be Called God?

Who Can Be Called God?

It is very important to understand the basic features of God, so one can tell the difference between the real God and an imposter. Only one who has proven Himself to be Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent, can be called God. Based on these basic features, only one person has proved that He is Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent. That person is Lord Krishna. There is ZERO evidence for the gods of other beliefs having and proving these three features. This is because, God is One, and thus only one person has these features, Lord Krishna.

God Is OMnipresent

 God is present everywhere at the same time. If you read all the documents on the planet, you will only find one tangible person who has declared and proved Himself as OMnipresent.

 “Of Vibrations I am the transcendental OM.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.25)

 Lord Krishna is all that begins with OM, He is OMnipresent, OMniscient, and OMnipotent.

 “I am seated in everyone’s heart.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.15)

 “I am the super soul, situated within the heart of all living beings. I am the origin, the middle, and the end of all living beings.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.20)

 Lord Krishna is present in the heart of all living beings, including the plants and animals as the super soul, next to the individual soul.

 “The Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is greater than all, is attainable by unalloyed devotion. Although He is present in His abode, He is all-pervading, and everything is situated within Him.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 8.22)

 Lord Krishna is always present on His planet called Goloka Vrndavana, and He is also present everywhere in millions of universes.

 “Although I am the maintainer of all living entities and although I am everywhere, I am not a part of this cosmic manifestation, for My Self is the very source of creation.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.5)

 “I enter into each planet, and by My energy they stay in orbit.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.13)

 Lord Krishna keeps millions of planets in orbit by His inconceivable energy. He is aloof and not bound by material nature.                         

“I exist within everything, and I am therefore the essence of the atomic constituents of material elements. (Lord Krishna, Srimad-Bhagavatam 11.15.12)

Lord Krishna is present in every atom.

God Is OMniscient

 God has all knowledge, complete awareness, can perceive everything, and He knows the past, present, and the future. If you read all the documents on the planet, you will only find one real tangible person who has declared and proved Himself as OMniscient.

 “The Personality of Godhead, Lord Sri Krsna, said: I instructed this imperishable science of yoga to the sun-god, Vivasvan, and Vivasvan instructed it to Manu, the father of mankind, and Manu in turn instructed it to Iksvaku.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.1)

 The knowledge of self-realization, the Bhagavad-Gita, has been spoken on this planet and beyond in millions of universes by Lord Krishna, the Godhead. He spoke it to Vivasvan, the person who controls the sun planet, some 120 million years ago.

 “That very ancient science of the relationship with the Supreme is today told by Me to you because you are My devotee as well as My friend and can therefore understand the transcendental mystery of this science.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.3)

 The knowledge of the science of God was first spoken in this universe, 155.522 trillion years ago and last spoken 5000 years ago by the same person, Lord Krishna.

 “The Personality of Godhead said: Many, many births both you and I have passed. I can remember all of them, but you cannot.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.5)

 “As the Supreme Personality of Godhead, I know everything that has happened in the past, all that is happening in the present, and all things that are yet to come. I also know all living entities; but Me no one knows.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 7.26)

 Lord Krishna has an eternal spiritual body and He can remember all His past appearances. He also knows the complete past, present, and the future of all the zillions of living entities on this and millions of other universes. He knows exactly what every living entity is doing at every second, because Lord Krishna is in the heart of all living beings as the super soul and the witness. We cannot even remember everything we did in the last hour, but Lord Krishna knows exactly what you, all living entities, and I, have done at every second in the past trillions of years.

God is OMnipotent

 God has unlimited power and opulence. If you read all the documents on the planet, you will only find one real tangible person who has declared and proved Himself as OMnipotent.

 “With a single fragment of Myself I pervade and support this entire universe.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.42)

 Lord Krishna is so powerful that with a single particle of Himself, He creates and maintains millions of universes.

 “There is no end to My divine manifestations. What I have spoken to you is but a mere indication of My infinite opulences.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.40)

 Lord Krishna has unlimited forms and unlimited opulence.

 “At the end of the millennium all material manifestations enter into My nature, and at the beginning of another millennium, by My potency, I create them again.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.7)

 In this verse, millennium means 311.040 trillion years, this is the lifespan of this universe and this is the time it takes Lord Krishna in His expansion as Maha-Visnu to inhale or exhale just once.  When Maha-Visnu exhales, millions of universes come out from His body pores and when He inhales, they all go back into His body. We are currently 155.522 trillion years into the current exhalation, this is the current age of the universe, and thus we have another 155.518 trillion years to go before the end of the universe and current cycle. For us, 100 years is a long time, but for Maha-Visnu, 311.040 trillion years is just one breath. This is how great Lord Krishna (God) is.

 “The whole cosmic order is under Me. Under My will it is automatically manifested again and again, and under My will it is annihilated at the end.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.8)

 Lord Krishna is in full control of the whole cosmic creation, comprising of millions of universes. By His will, there is creation, maintenance, and destruction. The power of Lord Krishna is inconceivable and completely beyond our material conception.

Be Conscious

Be conscious to accept a proven creator and not just a name. Anyone can say X is God and the proof of X being God is this creation. This is a nonsensical statement. Those who have some spiritual intelligence will ask what is the proof that X created and it wasn’t Y or Z or K? the answer will be ZERO PROOF.

Be conscious to accept a decent person as a spiritual master:

  • A person who is free from violence
  • A person who does not incite hate towards anyone
  • A person who does not have sex with children
  • A person who does not have multiple sex partners
  • A person who does not have sex outside marriage
  • A person who does not behead people
  • A person who does not order people to be beheaded
  • A person who does not instil terror into others
  • A person who does not loot
  • A person who does not engage in raids
  • A person who does not engage in wars
  • A person who does not order women to be taken captive
  • A person who does not take women captive
  • A person who does not order women to be made into sex slaves
  • A person who does not make women into his sex slaves
  • A person who does not divide humans into believers and unbelievers purely based on their beliefs
  • A person who does not curse others to a life of hell
  • A person who does not instil fear into others to change their beliefs
  • A person who is not attached to women
  • A person who allows free thinking
  • A person who allows questioning

Reject hate, violence, lust, slavery, theft, and greed. Embrace love, non-violence, peace, and compassion for all living beings.

“Humility; pridelessness; nonviolence; tolerance; simplicity; approaching a bona fide spiritual master; cleanliness; steadiness; self-control; renunciation of the objects of sense gratification; absence of false ego; the perception of the evil of birth, death, old age and disease; detachment; freedom from entanglement with children, wife, home and the rest; even-mindedness amid pleasant and unpleasant events; constant and unalloyed devotion to Me; aspiring to live in a solitary place; detachment from the general mass of people; accepting the importance of self-realization; and philosophical search for the Absolute Truth – all these I declare to be knowledge, and besides this whatever there may be is ignorance.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 13.8-12)

“My dear Arjuna he who engages in My pure devotional service, free from the contaminations of fruitive activities and mental speculation, he who works for Me, who makes Me the supreme goal of his life, and who is friendly to every living being – he certainly comes to Me. ” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 11.55)

The Science of the Soul

The Science of the Soul

Anyone can see that the material bodies of living beings (humans, plants, and animals) are different and temporary. Within each and every body of living beings, there is the soul, which is equal and eternal. This is the first and most important teaching in the Bhagavad-Gita from Lord Krishna. This teaching is unique to Sanatan-Dharma and it comes from God directly, Lord Krishna. There is ZERO knowledge on the science of the soul in the scriptures of other religions.

All living beings (humans, plants, and animals) have a soul:

  • All souls are equal, one soul is neither inferior nor superior to another
  • All souls are eternal
  • Every soul has an eternal companion relationship with the Supreme
  • Every soul is a family member of the Supreme (part of the Supreme)
  • Every soul is full of knowledge, and completely blissful
  • The soul cannot be destroyed by any weapon, burned, blown, or moistened
  • The soul is neither male nor female
  • The soul is neither black nor white
  • The soul is not Indian, nor American, nor African
  • The soul is not Hindu, nor Christian, nor Muslim
  • The soul is neither diseased nor healthy
  • One soul is neither richer nor poorer than another
  • The soul is neither old nor young
  • The soul has no weight and cannot be seen with the naked eye
  • The soul is situated in the heart of all living beings
  • The size of the soul is 1/10,000th of the tip of the hair

The Fundamental Law of Physics (Conservation of Energy)

Energy cannot be destroyed but it can change forms.

We (the soul) are the energy and the body is the form. When our current form (the body) is destroyed, we change into another form (another body).

“As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.22)

We Are The Eternal Soul And Not The Temporary Body

When a person dies, we say ‘he passed away’, but the body is right in front of us. This implies there are 2 entities, the ‘body’ and the ‘he’. The ‘he’ is the soul, the real person. This is the first teaching from the Bhagavad-Gita, the real ‘he’ is the soul and not the body. The body is temporary but the ‘he’  is eternal. Where has he (the soul) passed away to? Another body.

“As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change. “ (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.13)

“That which pervades the entire body you should know to be indestructible. No one is able to destroy that imperishable soul.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.17)

“The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.23) 

We Are All Eternal

“Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.12)

Number of Species (bodies) That The Soul Can Occupy

  “jalaja nava lakshani, sthavara laksha-vimshati, krimayo rudra-sankhyakah, pakshinam dasha-lakshanam, trinshal-lakshani pashavah, chatur lakshani manavah” (Padma Purana)

Jalaja (Water based life forms) – 0.9 million
Sthavara (Immobile implying plants and trees) – 2.0 million
Krimayo (Reptiles) – 1.1 million
Pakshinam (Birds) – 1.0 million
Pashavah (animals) – 3.0 million
Manavah (human-like) – 0.4 million

Total 8.4 million species of living beings.

A soul occupies a particular body, exactly based on its desires and deserves.

“The living entity in material nature thus follows the ways of life, enjoying the three modes of nature. This is due to his association with that material nature. Thus he meets with good and evil among various species.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 13.22)

Who Is The Origin Of All Living Beings?

“Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being – moving or nonmoving – that can exist without Me.“ (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.39)

“It should be understood that all species of life, O son of Kunti, are made possible by birth in this material nature, and that I am the seed-giving father.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 14.4)

Do We All Belong To God?

“Having obtained real knowledge from a self-realized soul, you will never fall again into such illusion, for by this knowledge you will see that all living beings are but part of the Supreme, or, in other words, that they are Mine.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.35)
