Krishna was god in human form?|
Lord Krishna was not god in human form... he was God Almighty manifest in
human form. Here we need to differentiate between God Almighty and man gods. Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus
Christ and Prophet Mohammed... all were born normal human beings! At the end of their life... all these
spiritual stalwarts gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).
For all practical purposes they became man gods... someone revered by
mankind for times to come. Every enlightened being... every human being who gains enlightenment and salvation
at the end of the journey becomes a man god... a liberated soul! Having liberated self from the cycle of
birth and death... all man gods find a place in kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism). The kingdom of
God... the abode of God is a place of no return!
Every single soul atman having liberated itself... having regained its
original pure pristine form remains in the kingdom of God... the abode of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism)
until eternity! And what does this mean? This simply means that until the dissolution of the present cosmos
occurs... all liberated souls atmans remain in the kingdom of God forever.
Here I would like to clarify one point and that is... sooner the collapse
of the entire cosmos occurs... the whole cosmos... the whole Brahmaand reduces to the size of half a thumb!
This has been clearly detailed in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by
Lord Krishna in Mahabharata!
And what is this story of the whole cosmos reducing to the size of half a
thumb? Devoid of all impurities... the dross within... the volume of all the souls' atmans in the cosmos is
the size of half a thumb! This defines... exemplifies the definition of God! Almighty God is the cluster of
all purified souls atmans in the cosmos at a given point of time.
Does this mean the volume of half the size of a thumb... the volume of
the entire cosmos after the collapse is what we term as God Almighty..., yes the truth is so! God Almighty is
nothing else but the sum total of all purified souls atmans in the cosmos. A grain of sand... an individual
soul atman... the whole mound... God Almighty himself!
This unimaginable power... the volume of half the size of a thumb... God
Almighty himself unable to contain itself for long in its prime pure state... again explodes with a big
bang... giving rise to a new cosmos... a new journey of life! And starts a new cosmos... a new beginning of
life! All the souls' atmans that had liberated in the previous cosmos again start their cosmic journey of 8.4
million manifestations and earthly journey of 96.4 million years before gaining final release!
Every human being who gains enlightenment... realizes self simply
liberates the soul atman within from the bondage of life and death... the vicious circle of Samsara (worldly
life). From the first manifestation as an amoeba to the last as an enlightened one... the journey of soul
atman is to reach the end of the journey... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!
The moment I realized God in 1993... It was all over for me! I had
reached the Mount Everest of spiritual pursuit... the end of the cosmic journey! No further else to go I
shall but attain salvation moksha within this life. Gaining enlightenment or self realization is the end goal
of human life. Whether we travel the spiritual path now or leave it for the future manifestations is the sole
prerogative of every individual human being!
In the history of mankind there has only been one Avatar... God manifest
in human form that has been witnessed by mankind... the form of lord Krishna... the Avatar of Dwaper Yuga!
During the times of Lord Krishna life was rife with brutalities of the highest order. No peace to be found...
God Almighty manifested the form of Lord Krishna! It was only Lord Krishna... an Avatar of the era who would
end adharma (lawlessness) and re-establish Dharma (righteousness)!
In the recent past... in the last about 150 years only two persons have
gained enlightenment... they were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana. Both these human beings
became man gods in their lifetime. Every single human being who gains salvation moksha after gaining
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) becomes a man god.
Having gained enlightenment a man god can give back to the community what
one has learnt on the path of Wisdom... the spiritual pursuit! Mahavira... the 24 Tirthankara of Jainism
exactly did that. He gained enlightenment at the age of 42 and left for the kingdom of God at 72 years of
age. For exactly 30 years he preached what he had learnt on the spiritual path.
On the contrary Gautama Buddha gained enlightenment at the end of his
cosmic life when about 80 years of age. He was so frail bodily that he preferred leaving the mortal frame the
moment he gained enlightenment! The prime reason why the Buddhist teachings are aka the middle path! Neither
living in the community nor in the confines of the forlorn forests do we gain enlightenment... so advised
To cut short... becoming a man god is the end of journey of life! Every
human being would one day become a man god like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed
but to incarnate as Lord Krishna is the forte of only a chosen one! One amongst the community... one in about
3500 years manifests the powers of God Almighty! Such a noble one is finally termed as an incarnation of
God... practically God Almighty himself!
May God bless all!
