Krishna explains reality more thoroughly than anyone else we've ever heard. Don't just take our word for it, though; judge for yourself:

Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 7.7

TRANSLATION

O conqueror of wealth, there is no truth superior to Me. All things rest upon Me, as pearls are strung on a thread.

PURPORT (excerpt):

There is a common controversy over whether the Supreme Absolute Truth is personal or impersonal. As far as Bhagavad-gita is concerned, the Absolute Truth is the Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna, and this is confirmed in every step. In this verse, in particular, it is stressed that the Absolute Truth is a person.

That the Personality of Godhead is the Supreme Absolute Truth is also the affirmation of the Brahma-samhita: isvarah paramah Krishnah sac-cid-ananda-vigrahah; that is, the Supreme Absolute Truth Personality of Godhead is Lord Krishna, who is the primeval Lord, the reservoir of all pleasure, Govinda, and the eternal form of complete bliss and knowledge. These authorities leave no doubt that the Absolute Truth is the Supreme Person, the cause of all causes.
