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 13 - Verses 14 thru 18 refer to Paramātmā, not the jīva

If the foolish think that the jīva is the one who is described as having hands and feet everywhere because it was he who was described as brahma in the verse before (BG 13.13), Kṛṣṇa clarifies that the knower of the field He is talking about now is situated as the controller in the heart of every living entity (hṛdi sarvasya viṣṭhitam). Thus these verses describe the Paramātmā and not the jīva. This follows the style of mixing topics (jīva and īśvara) commonly seen in the Upaniṣads.
