Who Is Krishna

Who is Krishna? The Vedas call Him " the Supreme Personality of Godhead." Krishna Himself—in The Bhagavad-gita—says He is the source of all material and spiritual worlds. In the same Bhagavad-gita, the great military commander Arjuna confirms Krishna's statement and lists all the sages throughout history—including Vyasadeva himself, the editor of the Vedas—who accept Krishna as the Supreme Being.

Who is this Person?

  • Krishna the Person. What does He like to do? Who does He prefer to spend His time with? Where does He live? What happens when He visits this (material) world? Does He have any helpful hints for us humans?
  • Krishna's Book—The Bhagavad-gita—Here are Krishna's helpful hints for humans: How are we supposed to act? How does He recommend we live? What are the guidelines for human life? What things should we avoid? Why are some people so difficult to get along with? What's the ultimate goal of life?
  • Krishna's latest incarnation—Chaitanya Mahaprabhu—The most recent (c. 1486) avatar of Krishna, the greatest teacher and example of Krishna consciousness ever.
