The Divinity in All Living Beings

(You may listen to the audio and follow the Shlokas given below)

Causing differences between people in the society is against the teachings of Bhagavan Krishna. The following shlokas from the Srimad Bhagavad Gita show that not only all humans, but also all living beings are equal before Bhagavan Krishna. No one or no being is superior or inferior.

Krishna says:
विद्याविनयसंपन्ने ब्राह्मणे गवि हस्तिनि |
शुनि चैव श्वपाके च पण्डिताः समदर्शिनः || ५ १८ ||
vidyaa vinaya sampanne braahmane gavi hastini
shuni chaiva shvapaake cha panditaaha samadarshinaha (SBG 5:18)
People who are wise treat equally, a learned and humble Brahmin,  a cow,  an elephant, and even a person who cooks and eats dog meat.

सर्वभूतस्थमात्मानं सर्वभूतानि चात्मनि |
ईक्षते योगयुक्तात्मा सर्वत्र समदर्शनः || ६ २९ ||
sarva bhootas-thamaat maanam sarva-bhootaani chaatmani
eekshate yoga-yuktaatmaa sarvatra sama-darshanaha (SBG 6:29)
A yogi whose Self is united with Divine Consciousness, sees the Self abiding in all beings and all beings in the Self. Such a person sees the same everywhere.

यो मां पश्यति सर्वत्र सर्वं च मयि पश्यति |
तस्याहं न प्रणश्यामि स च मे न प्रणश्यति || ६ ३० ||
yo maam pashyati sarvatra sarvam cha mayi pashyati
tasyaaham na prana shyaami sa cha me na prana shyati (SBG 6:30)
A person who sees Me everywhere and sees everything in Me, is not separated from Me nor am I separated from him.

सर्वभूतस्थितं यो मां भजत्येकत्वमास्थितः |
सर्वथा वर्तमानोऽपि स योगी मयि वर्तते || ६ ३१ ||
sarva bhoota sthitham yo maam bhaja tyekatva maas-thithaha
sarvathaa vartamaano’pi sa yogee mayi vartate (SBG 6:31)
The one who is in union with Me and worships Me residing in all beings, becomes a Yogi and, whatever circumstances the person may be in, resides in Me.

मत्कर्मकृन्मत्परमो मद्भक्तः सङ्गवर्जितः |
निर्वैरः सर्वभूतेषु यः स मामेति पाण्डव || ११ ५५ ||
matkarma krinmat paramo madbhaktah sanga varjitaha
nirvairaha sarva bhooteshu yah sa maameti paandava (SBG 11:55)
The one who is engaged in doing My work and considers Me his Supreme Goal; is free from contamination of the mind with previous activities and doubts; is free from attachment; has no enmity towards any creature, and is friendly with every living entity; certainly comes to me O Arjuna.

Remember, it is not just all humans but it is all living beings that are equal before Krishna. Therefore, Love, live, let live and respect the divinity in each other.
