There are more than 33 crores of Devi and Devtas in Hindu culture. But who is the Supreme God?

Many would suggest you worship Shiva, Hanuman, Durga maa, etc.

But according to Shastra, we come to know that Krishna is the Supreme god. Yes, Krishna is the supreme God, and you can’t deny the truth.

How to See God Krishna

see or experience god

So, Krishna (Supreme God) does not appear or disappear. Krishna is always present, but we see at a certain period. Just like the sun.

Sun is always in the sky, but when it is daytime, we see, and we can not see at night time.

At night time we can not see, it does not mean there is no sun. It is our imperfectness of eyes we can not see.

Similarly, Krishna is always present. One who has got eyes, he can see. When all the circumstances are favorable, he can see.

Premanjna-cchurita-bhakti-vilocanena santah sadaiva hardayesu vilokayanti” { Bs 5.38}

“Dhyanavasthita-tad-gatena manasa pasyanti yam yoginah” {SB 12.13.1}

Means, Krishna can be seen always, if we have got eyes to see. That eyes, how you can be transferred?

“Premanjana-cchurita”

When it is smeared with the ointment of love, then with these eyes you can see Krishna. He is always there.

“Isvarah sarva-bhutanam hrddese arjuna tisthati” {Bg 18.61}

He is represent every where.

” Anantra-stha-parmanu-cayantara-stham” {Bs. 5.35}

Krishna is not absent. Krishna is always there. We haven’t got eyes to see him. So, we have to prepare the eyes.

“Sarvopadhi-vinirmuktam tat-paratvena nirmalam {Cc. Madhya 19.170}

When you make your eyes Nirmala when you give up all these titular designations– “I am Hindu,” “I am Muslim,” I am Christian,” “I am American,” “I am Indian,” “I am black,” “I am white.”

These are all designations. When you give up all these and understand- “I am nothing of this; I am eternal servant of Krishna.”

When you come to this consciousness, you will see Krishna.

Krishna is always there.

A devotee is seeing factual Krishna and, and non-devotee is seeing a brass doll, that is all.

Krishna is here. Why somebody says, “Where is your Krishna?” Here is Krishna!!

Just like Hiranyakasipu, he challenged Prahlada Maharaja, “Where is your Krishna? All right, let me kill you. Let your God come and protect you.”

So the atheist class, they say like this. But one who has got training in Krishna consciousness has got eyes to see Krishna always.

If there is no Krishna, then all the Acaryas, they installed deity in millions of temples, they are all fools and rascals?

They ask us to worship some stone and wood? No, Krishna is there, but we have not got eyes to see him. That is the difference. So, we have to create the vision to see Krishna.

We can not command Krishna, “Please come here. I will see you.” No!!!

He will reveal himself, being satisfied with your service. So, we have to wait for that revelation, not by force. Force will not act.

Krishna is not our order supplier, servant,” Krishna, please come here. I will see you.” No, no. That will not do.

It would help if you were submissive, first of all, surrender. You follow the rules and regulations, be mad after Krishna, just like Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

Sunyayitam jagat sarvam govinda-virahena me {Siksastaka 7}

“Everything is vacant because I can not see Govinda (Krishna).” – Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

Just like if one’s beloved son dies, he sees everything vacant. He no more sees that cars are running on the street or people are running. No!!!

Also, read– Who is God by Sadhguru.

He sees everything vacant. Why? -Due to love. Similarly, when we come to the position, we shall see everything blank without Krishna. Then that is the proper position to see Krishna.

Lord Caitanya says,” I am not a devotee of Krishna.” How would you know you have a love for Krishna?

Caitanya Mahaprabhu says,” Because I am still living without Krishna, that means I have no love for Krishna. I should have died long, long, ago.”

So, this much ecstasy, this much eagerness, when we come, can see Krishna always.

Twenty-four hours we can see Krishna. He can not see anything but Krishna. Just like the sunrise. As soon as the sun rises, you start your airplane, and you go on, towards the eastern or western side, you will find always day.

A practical, there will be no sunset. If you always keep yourself in Krishna’s consciousness, Krishna will not go away from your site.

How to Understand The Supreme God (Krishna)

understand god

Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita, –

tesam satata-yuktanam bhajatam priti-purvakam” – BG 10.10

To Krishna, those who are constantly engaged in loving devotional service to such people say, “dadami buddhi-yogarh tam” “unto such people, I give the intelligence, I give the knowledge.”

What kind of Knowledge? Yena mam upayanti te: “By which they can come to me.”

Such Knowledge, Krishna says he gives. So that Knowledge includes, Knowledge about who Krishna is, what is Krishna’s nature, what kind of personality Krishna is, What is the nature of his kingdom, of the spiritual world where he lives. Everything!!! How to go to the spiritual world. Everything Krishna will reveal.

All kinds of Knowledge Krishna will give. So, bhakti is the way for getting particular Knowledge about Krishna.

In Bhagavad Gita again Krishna says, “bhaktya mam abhijanati.” Only by devotion, you can know Krishna properly. “Yavan yas casmi tattvatah.”

If you want to know Krishna in truth, if you read some ordinary person describing Krishna, they say, “He is some great politician.”

It is not a proper understanding of Krishna, this type of understanding is useless.

It can’t save you from death. If you want to protect yourself from death, you should know Krishna as Godhead’s original personality.

And that can be taught only from devotees of Krishna. Only from devotees.

So, you have to hear from devotees, or you have to read books written by devotees or associate with devotees. Then only you can understand Krishna.
