Krishna – The Source of Everything !!
Dear reader’s welcome to the site IandKṛṣṇa. Through this website it’s our endeavor to give a chance to every human being to understand God’s creation, in other words, to provide insight into the science of GOD. This website welcomes individuals from all the religions/ faith, as God never created any religion in the first place. We all are part and parcel of one Supreme authority and it should be our endeavor to understand His creation and serve Him unconditionally. Krishna (Kṛṣṇa) is the source of everything; He is not just a Hindu God. He is the origin of all. Every living being moving and non-moving are all His eternal part and parcel. Krishna is full with all six opulence’s namely – wealth, fame, strength, knowledge, beauty, and renunciation, and thus He is the master of the senses. He creates these manifested universes in order to reclaim the living beings who are within them suffering threefold misery, maintains them, and in due course annihilates them without being the least affected by such actions.
The content of this website is based on the ancient Vedic Scriptures/ Sanatan-dharma which people often relate it to Hinduism; however, in all the Vedic scriptures there is no mention of the word Hindu/ Hinduism. “What is known in India as Sanatana-dharma, “the eternal religion”, is meant for this eternal, all-pervading, unchangeable, indestructible living spirit. That is to say, real religion is transcendental to the various religious faiths that focus on the gross material body and the subtle material mind. Sanatana-dharma is not just for one particular people, place, or time. Rather, it is eternal and all-pervasive. All religions-except Sanatana-dharma is meant for culturing physical or psychological changes. The influences of various people, places, and times have led us to designate ourselves as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Socialists, Bolsheviks, and so forth”. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (2012 edition), “Message of Godhead”, Page 25
Specifically, in the field of religion, we have tried to establish many varieties of denominations, according to various peoples, places, and times. And precisely for this reason, we can envision ourselves “changing religions”. One who is a Hindu today may become a Muhammadan the next day, or one who is a Muhammadan today may become a Christian the next day, and so on. But when we attain transcendental knowledge and are established in Sanatan-dharma, the actual eternal religion of the living entity – the spirit soul- then only can we attain real, undeniable peace, prosperity, and happiness in the world. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (2012 edition), “Message of Godhead”, Page 25 & 26)
The purpose of Vedic knowledge is the ultimate to understand the Supreme Lord. One can enter into the kingdom of Supreme Lord only by executing devotional service. This is confirmed in Bhagavad-gita by the Lord Himself: “One can understand Me only through devotional service”. Some scholars recommend that knowledge and renunciation are important factors for elevating oneself to devotional service. But actually, that is not a fact. Actually, the cultivation of knowledge or renunciation, which are favorable for achieving a footing in Krishna consciousness, may be accepted in the beginning, but ultimately they may also come to be rejected, for devotional service is dependent on nothing other than the sentiment or desire for such service.
It requires nothing more than sincerity. It is the opinion of expert devotees that mental speculation and the artificial austerities of yoga practice may be favorable for becoming liberated from material contamination, but they will also make one’s heart harder and harder. They will not help at all in the progress of devotional service. These processes are therefore not favorable for entering into the transcendental loving service of the Lord. Actually, Krishna consciousness – devotional service itself – is the only way of advancing in devotional life. Devotional service is absolute; it is both the cause and the effect. The Supreme Personality of Godhead is the cause and the effect of all that be, and to approach Him, the Absolute, the process of devotional service – which is also absolute – has to be adopted. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (2011 edition), “The Nector of Devotion”, Page 113)
