Every word we hear has a meaning behind it. As soon as we hear the word "water," there is a substance-water-behind the word. Similarly, as soon as we hear the word "God," there is a meaning to it. If we receive that meaning and explanation of "God" from God Himself, then it is perfect. But if we speculate about the meaning of "God," it is imperfect.
Bhagavad-gita, which is the science of God, is spoken by the Personality of Godhead Himself. This is perfect knowl edge. Mental speculators, or so-called philosophers who are researching for what is actually God, will never understand the nature of God. The science of God has to be understood in disciplic succession from Brahmii, who was first in structed about knowledge of God from God Himself. (Srimad-Bhagavatam, Pur port, 3.26.33)
Everybody is looking for Krishna. Some don’t realize that they are, but they are. Krishna is GOD, the Source of all that exists, the Cause of all that is, was, or ever will be.
As GOD is unlimited, HE has many Names. Allah-Buddha-Jehova-Rama: All are Krishna, all are ONE. God is not abstract; He has both the impersonal and the personal aspects to His personality which is
SUPREME, ETERNAL, BLISSFUL, and full of KNOWLEDGE. As a single drop of water has the same qualities as an ocean of water, so has our consciousness the qualities of GOD’S consciousness . . . but through our identification and attachment with material energy (physical body, sense pleasures, material possessions, ego, etc.) our true
TRANSCENDENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS has been polluted, and like a dirty mirror it is unable to reflect a pure image. With many lives our association with the
TEMPORARY has grown. This impermanent body, a bag of bones and flesh, is mistaken for our true self, and we have accepted this temporary condition to be final. Through all ages, great SAINTS have remained as living proof that this non-temporary, permanent state of
GOD CONSCIOUSNESS can be revived in all living Souls. Each soul is potentially divine. Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita: "Steady in the Self, being freed from all material contamination, the yogi achieves the highest perfectional stage of happiness in touch with the Supreme Consciousness." (VI, 28)
YOGA (a scientific method for GOD (SELF) realization) is the pro cess by which we purify our consciousness, stop further pollution, and arrive at the state of Perfection, full KNOWLEDGE, full BLISS.
