Lord Krishna - Janmastami (Sat Aug 23rd, 2008)

Among the trinity of Hindu Gods-Lord Krishna is the only one who incarnates as a human being because of which he is very much like us. Krishna is within us and among us. For people who believe in Him; he is Jesus, Buddha, Nanak, Mahavira, and Allah-One God with different names.

He resides in our heart and helps us see the good and bad side of a thing. The only way to see our true self is to reflect on what Lord Krishna has said in Bhagawad Gita.

"Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya Glanir Bhavati Bharatha
Abhyuthanam Adharmasya Tadathmanam Srijamyaham.

Parithranaya Sadhunam Vinashayacha Dushkritham
Dharma Samsthapanarthaya Sambhavami Yuge Yuge."

"Whenever there is a fall in Dharma and a rise in Adharma, I come." It is all in the mind. When there is a dance of destruction and the principles of sustenance become weak in me, I who am always present and watching will take charge and set things in balance for you.

"To protect the good and to destroy evil and establish Dharma, I manifest."
