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 15 - The person who is higher than the two beings

Kṛṣṇa summarizes the meaning of the Vedas as defined by Vyasadeva by next explaining the higher being who is different and higher than the two kinds of beings.

There is another person, who is different in conception from the two types mentioned above. By using the word 'tu' the Lord emphatically states another ontological reality. That other person is described in the scriptures as Paramātmā. He is the uttama puruṣa because He enters the three worlds and supports everything as the unchanging controller. It is explained in the Kaṭha Upaniṣad (2.2.13) and Śvetāśvatara Upaniṣad (6.13) that above the innumerable living entities, some of whom are conditioned and some of whom are liberated, there is the Supreme Personality, who is Paramātmā, who maintains them and gives them all the facility of enjoyment according to different work. This position of supporting and protecting the universe cannot refer to the conditioned jīva because he cannot perform such actions. It cannot refer to the liberated jīva either because he is devoid of interaction with the world. Viśvanātha Cakravartī explains that the Lord after speaking about Brahman, which the jñānīs worship, speaks about Paramātmā, which the yogīs worship. As the yogī is a different worshipper than the jñānī, the object worshipped will also be different.
