Teachings of Lord Krishna..

  •  As the embodied soul continuously passes, in this body from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change.
  • The Vedas compare the soul and the Super soul to two friendly birds sitting on the same tree. One of the birds (the individual atomic soul) is eating the fruit of the tree, and the other bird (Krishna) is simply watching his friend.
  • While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises. From anger delusion, and from delusion bewilderment of memory.
  • The supreme science was thus recieved through the chain of disciplic succession, and the saintly kings understood it in that way. But in course of time the succession was broken, and therefore the science as it is appears to be lost.
  • Although Lord Shri Krishna is unborn and his transcendental body never deteriorates, and although he is the Lord of all living entities, he still appears in every millennium in his original transcendental form.
  • According to the three modes of material nature and the work associated with them, the four divisions of human society are created but Lord Shri Krishna is yet the non-doer, being unchangeable.
  • And of all yogis, the one with great faith who always abides in Lord Shri Krishna, thinks of Lord Shri Krishna and renders transcendental loving service to the Lord, he is the most intimately united with the Lord in Yoga and is the highest of all.
  • Those miscreants who are grossly foolish, who are lowest among mankind, whose knowledge is stolen by illusion, and who partake of the atheistic nature of demons do not surrender unto Lord Shri Krishna.
  • Lord Krishna is the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from him. The wise who perfectly know this engage in his devotional service and worship the Lord with all their hearts.
  • Those who fix their minds on Lord Krishna's personal form and are always engaged in worshiping him with great and transcendental faith are considered by Lord Shri Krishna to be the most perfect.
  • Food prepared for more than three hours before being eaten, food that is tasteless, decomposed and putrid and food consisting of remman ts and untouchable things is dear to those in the mode of darkness.
