Attaining the Divine Nature of Krishna

An introduction to the video – ‘Attaining the Divine Nature of Krishna’

Please read the post below before watching the video.

Some organised religions say, “The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.” What? Why? Why should anyone fear God as if he were some kind of ‘Boogeyman’ or something?! This kind of ridiculousness stems from the age-old technique of organised systems of mass mind manipulation and enslavement, and of conceptualising ‘god’ to be a separate angry being residing in the skies. A separate ‘god’, a holy book, and one or more ‘divine’ individuals, are some principal requirements of organised religions, cults or religious ‘isms’.

Although there are numerous scriptures associated with the Vedic Sanatana Dharma, the Vedas, as the name ‘Vedic Sanatana Dharma’ suggests, are the principal scriptures that explain the philosophy of this ancient way of life, with its highest knowledge being present in the Upanishads.

Just as a mountain climber’s only objective is to reach the summit of the mountain that he has set for himself as his goal, a spiritual seeker, who is fortunate enough to have been born in a family that had not converted to some organised religion or cult, should be aiming to improve their intellectual capabilities and attain the highest stage of the Vedas known as Vedanta, which could be translated as the end, goal or pinnacle of the Vedas.

A couple of important reasons for some people of the Vedic Sanatana Dharma to remain at lower levels of spiritual enlightenment are that their religious teachers have not taught them how to understand the allegories in scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita and Puranas, and experience the core truth that they are not inferior in any way since the Self in each one of them is that very All-pervading Supreme Brahman.

Spiritual teachings use allegory because they are based on natural principles, which will remain the same no matter how many centuries or millennia have passed, or the living conditions of people, their levels of understanding, and their technology have changed through evolution. But when people take allegories in the literal sense, superstitious cults are born and people drift far away from the truth. The leaders of such cults use fear to instill feelings of inadequacy, weakness, inferiority, and dependency in the minds of their followers so that their lifelong loyalty to the self-styled know-it-all ‘gurus’ can be assured.

Every act, including superstitious ones, take people closer to their end because time is ticking away for everyone. Why not use one’s time to improve knowledge instead of following unintelligent brain-numbing techniques taught by charlatans claiming to be all-knowing spiritual gurus? Why not take to studying Vedanta, starting with the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and some principal Upanishads?

The decision whether to acquire true knowledge or remain enamoured by superstition is up to you. All you would need to do is take a moment to think and make the choice.

Stay blessed.

Jai Shri Krishna
