Is Krishna a Hindu God?

Is Krishna a Hindu God?

Our Answer:

God, Krishna, is universal, like the law of gravity, or the sun, or mathematics, or gold. He is unavoidable because He's present everywhere by His energies. There's nowhere you can go where Krishna's energies do not reach. Neither is He not the property of any particular nation, tribe, or belief set. As soon as you say, "Hindu God," you're not talking about God as He is, as the Absolute Truth; He's God of everything. Mickey Mouse, however, can be considered as the "American Mouse god," because Mickey has no influence outside of a video screen or Disneyland.

“We have to transcend mundane conceptions of religion, thinking “We are Hindus, we are Muslims, we are Christians. . .” Gold can’t be “Hindu gold,” “Muslim gold,” or “Christian gold.” Just because a lump of gold is in the hand of a Hindu or a Muslim, that doesn’t make it “Muslim gold,” or “Hindu gold.” It is gold.”—His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Calcutta, March 20, 1975
