I have been thinking, perhaps Krishna is a myth and has never existed at all. There is no Krishna and there has never been any Krishna. There is only Brahman. Brahman is what we worship.
The sages and seers of ancient India wanted to express their thoughts about the nature of human consciousness, so they came up with a story with a boy named Krishna as the central character in that story.
I have been thinking about Picard in The Inner Light and wondered what it would be like if the event happened in his infancy.
Imagine he is less than a year old. The probe transports him into another life where he is the same age, and has a new mother and a new family. He grows up into adulthood, has a family and becomes a grandparent. He dies, the whole event took all of 20 minutes and his consciousness returns back to his original consciousnesss, back to the same age and same family.
I have been thinking about the True Story , about how Krishna concluded that it would be better to simulate creatures' experience of the world, than expending a lot of material resources creating a real physical world, with all the logistical and organizational issues of putting creatures in it.
Is this a true story, or should it really be entitled 'A Convincing Story'?
Well - here goes.
This is a story about how God created the universe, but then somehow the universe came to be Krishna's creation. Yes this is really true. It is God who created the universe not Krishna as Krishna's devotees like to claim.
When God was creating the world, He first created two beings, Nara and Narayana, to help Him with his activities. Nara and Narayana later reincarnated as Arjuna and Krishna. We will call them Arjuna and Krishna from now on, as that is how we have come to know them.
