Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

BG Chap 10 - The result of understanding Kṛṣṇa properly

One who knows that Kṛṣṇa is unborn and also born, and still without beginning, and as the lord of all planets, is freed from all sins. The devas and ṛṣis may know about the birth of the Lord, whose body is not limited by time and space. But Kṛṣṇa says that one who knows Him as without birth and beginningless is freed of sins. Brahmā has a beginning but the Lord is without birth because of having no beginning. One who knows that the Lord is unborn, and also born to Vasudeva but still He is without beginning, is freed from all sins. Kṛṣṇa takes birth but because He is the Paramātmā, He is eternally without birth. Both these conditions are absolute truth, a demonstration of the acintya śakti. In His Dāmodara-līlā, it is inconceivable that no amount of rope was sufficient to bind Kṛṣṇa, yet His waist at that time was already encircled by a black thread and bell, which had been previously tied by Yaśodā. Equally inconceivable is that Kṛṣṇa, the great controller of all planets, allowed Himself to be controlled by Arjuna as He became Arjuna’s chariot driver.
