Who is the Supreme Person (God)?
Only the Bhagavad Gita answers this basic and most important question. The Bhagavad-Gita is the word of God in person. The one of oldest scripture on the Planet.
One can read the non-vedic scriptures for millions of years but will never know who the person God is. Simply by looking at the Bhagavad-Gita for 1 second, one can immediately see God. This is the difference between the Vedic (eternal) and non-vedic (recently created) scriptures.
“There is no truth superior to me.” (Lord Krishna, Bg. 7.7)
“The whole cosmic order is under me. By my will it is manifested again and again, and by my will it is annihilated at the end” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.8)
“Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being, moving or unmoving, that can exist without me” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.39)
“I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who perfectly know this engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.8)
“Of all that is material and all that is spiritual in this world, know for certain that I am both the origin and the dissolution” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 7.6)
Knowing God means knowing his name, address, description, history, how he maintains and so on.
What is Religion?
The purpose of religion is to know and love God. You can only love someone if you know them. You cannot love an invisible or unknown person. Seeing is believing. Only the Vedic scriptures describe exactly who the person God is. The non-Vedic scriptures don’t have a clue as to who God is. Loving God includes loving all God’s creatures. This means loving all humans and animals. We don’t eat our brothers and sisters, the animals are also our brothers and sisters.
Does God want Blood?
The majority of people in the World. In this age of Kali, the age of ignorance. Seem to think that animal killing is prescribed by God.
This is not so for the real God, Lord Krishna. He only wants your love and not the blood of living beings.
“If one offers me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit or water, I will accept it.” (Lord Krishna, Bg. 9.26)
Your death is certain
Your grandfather has died, you will also die, and your children will also die. Death is certain, it’s only a matter of time. Still you are madly accumulating money and working very hard all day like a donkey. You do not care for the soul which is eternal, but you care for the body which is temporary. This is ignorance. In ignorance the soul becomes degraded and after this life. Such people take birth as dogs and hogs. There are 8.4 million different bodies that the soul keeps circulating in, one after the other. The fools will not think of the life after this one. They will simply mate, eat, sleep, and be merry. This is animal mentality. The animals also mate, sleep, eat and be merry. The only difference between the animals and the humans is that humans enquire;
Who am I?
Where have I come from?
What will happen to me at death?
Why do I suffer?
Why do others suffer?
Who is God?
How can I serve God?
Why is there variety of living beings?
How can I get out this cycle of birth, old age, disease, and death?
How can I live eternally?
