Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

BG Chap 10 - The vibhūtis of Kṛṣṇa - 41 thru 45

(41): Among purifiers or among swift things, Kṛṣṇa is the wind.
(42): Among wielders of weapon, He is Paraśurāma. Lord Rāma cannot be considered a vibhūti of Kṛṣṇa because a jīva can be considered a vibhūti but not the Supreme Lord Himself. Paraśurāma is an empowered jīva, who is an aveśāvatāra, who was given powers by the Lord. When a jīva is filled with portions of jñāna śakti or other śaktis of the Lord, he is called aveśāvatāra.
(43): Among fish, Kṛṣṇa is the makara or a shark. Makara is often considered a crocodile, the carrier of Gaṅga devī. However, in temple art it is a combination of many animals: jaws of a crocodile with pointed teeth, scales of a fish, the tail of a peacock, the trunk of an elephant, the eyes of a monkey, and the tusks of a boar.
(44): Among flowing rivers, Kṛṣṇa is Gaṅga.
(45): Of all creations, Kṛṣṇa is the beginning, middle and end. He is the creation, maintenance and destruction of all material elements. One should meditate upon creation, maintenance and destruction as His vibhūtis. Previously (BG 10.20), Kṛṣṇa said He was the beginning, middle and end of all living beings. This was in reference to the bodies of the living entities, His conscious parts. Here (BG 10.32) Kṛṣṇa refers to the material elements, and thus there is no repetition.
