Krishna, Brahma and the Gopas

Submitted by rchurch on Sun, 13/12/2009 - 13:56

The Srimad Bhagavatam has an interesting chapter about the nature of the ego and identity, described in a story about a contest of power between Krishna and the Creator God, Brahma. There is no need to repeat it here, as you've probably read it. It is available online at krsnabook.com a>

Krishna's ability to manifest himself in the forms of the gopas and calves is expressed. But what about the unexpressed part?

Krishna and Envy

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.

Lord Krishna and the Bhagavad-Gita

Krishna as a Teacher, Preacher? When I begun to study Krishna and His place in Indian religion, there was something that didn't sit right with me, something I couldn't quite define. In other religions the main proponents of the religions have been teachers, prophets, reformers and law makers. Moses, Muhammad, Jesus, Buddha all share these traits whereas Krishna does not. This is the bit that always had me puzzled. But it is only when you pay more attention that the theme underlying the stories begin to work itself out. Krishna as Religious Teacher

A True Story

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.

God or Krishna?

One thing any unbiased observer of religion will notice is the fact that when it comes to moral conduct and sense of social responsibility all religions are basically identical in what they expect from their believers. When it comes to devotional practices they also share a lot of commonality. It is the view on cosmogony and the afterlife condition that fundamentally differs.
