  • hare krishna

    there is a bhajan 

    "ram mein ghanshyam mein shri shyam mein kya fark hai, 

    ek hi maya prabhu ki tark mein bas tark hai,

    mat phaso duvidha mein tum to gr phase majdhar hai'

    har krisna

  • Hare Krishna,

    Vishnu is non-different to Krishna. Srila Prabhupada had given this example many times. Krishna and Vishnu are like candle lit another candle but Krishna being the original candle or first candle. Other difference is of the mood. Krishna is always in Madhura rasa in Goloka but Vishnu is in Vaikunthas in opulent form. Other way to describe the mood difference is Vishnu is Krishna in office. That means Krishna himself is Vishnu but in the mood of a boss.

    Hope I am clear.

    Your Servant,

    Bhupesh Gupta

    • Thank u for link. Haribol

      Yes, it's from Laghu Bhagavatamrita and is bonafide

  • In the Laghu Bhagavatamrita Srila Sanatan Goswami has in detail described the various Avatars of the Supreme Lord, which are eternally in Spiritual World as Rupas. So, actually, All The Transcendental Forms are The Rupas,with Their planets in Spiritual World, which when descend on Material Platform out of Compassion for baddha jivatma or for His pleasure Pastimes are AVATARS. And the cause of all causes The Supreme Lord Krsna is The Topmost Svayam Rupa

  • There is only one supreme God and has no specific form ... When he decided to come to earth to re establish the Dharma. He has to come in the form which we all can see and understand... So, He came via Vishnu with all his 64 qualities and called on earth as Krishna ....and Rest is History

    Hope it helps...Hare Krishna !

      where did you learn that God has no specific form?

      could you tell us specific verse from any scriptures?

      • I am just a beginner prabhu...but if you have any scriptures specifying his form then please enlighten me 

        • Volunteer

          Hare Krishna Harish pr,

          there are many verses specifying His form, some I am mentioning

          Bramhaji says following 

          http://vedabase.net/bs/5/1/en

          http://vedabase.net/bs/5/30/en

          Kṛṣṇa who is known as Govinda is the Supreme Godhead. He has an eternal blissful spiritual body. He is the origin of all. He has no other origin and He is the prime cause of all causes.

          I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, who is adept in playing on His flute, with blooming eyes like lotus petals with head decked with peacock's feather, with the figure of beauty tinged with the hue of blue clouds, and His unique loveliness charming millions of Cupids.

          in Bhagawad Gita, 

          BG 12.1Arjuna inquired: Which are considered to be more perfect, those who are always properly engaged in Your devotional service or those who worship the impersonal Brahman, the unmanifested?

          BG 12.2: The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Those who fix their minds on My personal form and are always engaged in worshiping Me with great and transcendental faith are considered by Me to be most perfect.

          since the original post is for diff question, I suggest we should not hijack original poster's question, so if you have further questions please start a new discussion.

          Hare Krishna, Hari bol

          your servant
