Supreme Personality of Godhead


According to Hindu Mythology Lord Vishnu , Shiva ,and Brahma are the controller, destroyer and creators respectively .and Lord Vishnu is said to have incarnated 9 times to save this world from demon or asura as they call them in hindi . And Krishna is said to be the 7th incarnation of Lord Vishnu but according to his Devine grace A.C. BHAKTIVEDANT SWAMI PRABHUPADA who was the purest devotee of Lord Krishna and founder of ISKCON( International Society of Krishna Consciousness) Krishna is not an incarnation of Lord Vishnu but he is the creator of whole universe. It is believed that Krishna created the universe and from atom of his body Lord sangharshna and garbho dakshyak(who is controller of universe) Vishnu came and from garbho dakshyak Vishnu shiro dakshayk vishu came .This shiro dakshayk Vishnu who resides in shir sagar(sea) is responsible for all incarnations.

Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. How is that? Because He conforms in exact detail to descriptions of the Supreme Being, the Godhead. In other words, Krishna is the Godhead because He is all-attractive. Outside the principle of all-attraction, there is no meaning to the word Godhead. How is it one can be all-attractive? First of all, if one is very wealthy, if he has great riches, he becomes attractive to the people in general. Similarly, if someone is very powerful, he also becomes attractive, and if someone is very famous, he also becomes attractive, and if someone is very beautiful or wise or unattached to all kinds of possessions, he also becomes attractive. So from practical experience we can observe that one is attractive due to 1) wealth, 2) power, 3) fame, 4) beauty, 5) wisdom, and 6) renunciation. One who is in possession of all six of these opulence’s at the same time, who possesses them to an unlimited degree, is understood to be the Supreme Personality of Godhead. These opulence’s of the Godhead are delineated by Parasara Muni, a great Vedic authority.

Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is an historical person who appeared on this earth 5,000 years ago. He stayed on this earth for 125 years and played exactly like a human being, but His activities were unparalleled. From the very moment of His appearance to the moment of His disappearance, every one of His activities is unparalleled in the history of the world, and therefore anyone who knows what we mean by Godhead will accept Krishna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. No one is equal to the Godhead, and no one is greater than Him. That is the import of the familiar saying, "God is great."

Those who give up the scriptural injunctions, but continue to worship you with full faith, what is their devotion O Krishna? Is it sattvic, rajasic or tamasic?

Said Arjuna:

"Those who give up the scriptural injunctions, but continue to worship you with full faith, what is their devotion O Krishna? Is it sattvic, rajasic or tamasic?"

Replied Supreme Lord:

"In three ways exists the faith of the embodied according to their own nature- sattva, rajas and also tamas. Now hear that from Me."

krisna is not bound in the boundries of words he is undefinable, though we are trying to see him in the perspective of mahabharat but he is much larger than we think about him
