IS GOD ONE FOR ALL OR NOT?

Hare Krishna !

At present, there are many religions in the world and different religions worship different gods. I am 100% sure that Krishna is the supreme god. But people of other religions don't believe in Krishna. They believe in their own gods. For example buddhishts worship Buddha, Muslims worship Allah and so on. I have a confusion. Are all the gods of different religions the manifestations of Krishna? Does same god Krishna appears in different forms in different religions? or Are all other religions only the fictions?

If Krishna is one for all then why was it necessaryto divide people into different religions? And, why do the philosophy of different religions vary from one another?

Can the people of other religions attain Krishna by the bhakti of their own god? Please answer me.

Hare Krishna !

  • Also Krishna is supreme personal attributes so how can that be denied? Further Krishna is for the realization of all Unconditionally, who ealse is doing that?
  • I think divine potential can be learned quicker than inherited! ?
  • Hare Krsna
    It is a very intelligent question.
    "Is God one for all or not?"
    Jesus Christ once said that one cannot have two masters for if he does then he is likely to betray one while he follows the other.
    Muslims worship only Allah and He is one.
    Guru Granth Sahib begins with 1 which means there is only one God.
    The Caitanya Caritamrta confirms " "Ekala Isvara Krsna Ara Sab Bhrtya " which means that only Krsna is God and everyone else is His servant.
    The Brahma Samhita also begins with "Isvara Paramah Krsna.. ", Krsna is the Supreme Controller and He is the cause of all causes.
    Krsna Himself validates this point in the Bhagavad Gita and says that as a person worships Him, He awards him accordingly.
    There is no doubt that Krsna is the Supreme Godhead and the same is also confirmed by the Guru Granth Sahib on Ang (Page No.) 1402. However Sikhi is altogether a different religion.
    Now a person's fate does not depend upon which religion he belongs to but how much he has practiced and followed.
    How qualified he is to see Krsna!
    When one considers this then he takes to worshiping Krsna with single pointed devotion.
  • u will understand this if u study first chapter of jaiva dharma

    • Vedic scriptures do not have complete information about God. Non of the scriptures in this world have that, neither they will have it in the future.

      Srila Haridasa Namacarya said :

      "All living entities in creation are inspired by the Lord in the heart to act in different ways. People of different religions praise the Lord's holy names and qualities according to the view of their scriptures. The Supreme Lord accepts everyone's mood. If anyone shows malice towards another's religion he ac­tually shows malice to the Lord Himself, who is worshiped by that religion. Since God is one, that person becomes envious of the same Supreme Lord that he himself is worshiping."

      Every Vaishnava should remember this words, otherwise by offending Lord, what progress can anyone expect.

  • Bhagavad-gītā As It Is 18.66

    sarva-dharmān parityajya
    mām ekaḿ śaraṇaḿ vraja
    ahaḿ tvāḿ sarva-pāpebhyo
    mokṣayiṣyāmi mā śucaḥ


    TRANSLATION

    Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear.


    PURPORT

    The Lord has described various kinds of knowledge and processes of religion — knowledge of the Supreme Brahman, knowledge of the Supersoul, knowledge of the different types of orders and statuses of social life, knowledge of the renounced order of life, knowledge of nonattachment, sense and mind control, meditation, etc. He has described in so many ways different types of religion. Now, in summarizing Bhagavad-gītā, the Lord says that Arjuna should give up all the processes that have been explained to him; he should simply surrender to Kṛṣṇa. That surrender will save him from all kinds of sinful reactions, for the Lord personally promises to protect him.
    In the Seventh Chapter it was said that only one who has become free from all sinful reactions can take to the worship of Lord Kṛṣṇa. Thus one may think that unless he is free from all sinful reactions he cannot take to the surrendering process. To such doubts it is here said that even if one is not free from all sinful reactions, simply by the process of surrendering to Śrī Kṛṣṇa he is automatically freed. There is no need of strenuous effort to free oneself from sinful reactions. One should unhesitatingly accept Kṛṣṇa as the supreme savior of all living entities. With faith and love, one should surrender unto Him.
    The process of surrender to Kṛṣṇa is described in the Hari-bhakti-vilāsa (11.676):


    ānukūlyasya sańkalpaḥ
    prātikūlyasya varjanam
    rakṣiṣyatīti viśvāso
    goptṛtve varanaḿ tathā
    ātma-nikṣepa-kārpaṇye
    ṣaḍ-vidhā śaraṇāgatiḥ


    According to the devotional process, one should simply accept such religious principles that will lead ultimately to the devotional service of the Lord. One may perform a particular occupational duty according to his position in the social order, but if by executing his duty one does not come to the point of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, all his activities are in vain. Anything that does not lead to the perfectional stage of Kṛṣṇa consciousness should be avoided. One should be confident that in all circumstances Kṛṣṇa will protect him from all difficulties. There is no need of thinking how one should keep the body and soul together. Kṛṣṇa will see to that. One should always think himself helpless and should consider Kṛṣṇa the only basis for his progress in life. As soon as one seriously engages himself in devotional service to the Lord in full Kṛṣṇa consciousness, at once he becomes freed from all contamination of material nature. There are different processes of religion and purificatory processes by cultivation of knowledge, meditation in the mystic yoga system, etc., but one who surrenders unto Kṛṣṇa does not have to execute so many methods. That simple surrender unto Kṛṣṇa will save him from unnecessarily wasting time. One can thus make all progress at once and be freed from all sinful reactions.
    One should be attracted by the beautiful vision of Kṛṣṇa. His name is Kṛṣṇa because He is all-attractive. One who becomes attracted by the beautiful, all-powerful, omnipotent vision of Kṛṣṇa is fortunate. There are different kinds of transcendentalists — some of them are attached to the impersonal Brahman vision, some of them are attracted by the Supersoul feature, etc., but one who is attracted to the personal feature of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and, above all, one who is attracted by the Supreme Personality of Godhead as Kṛṣṇa Himself, is the most perfect transcendentalist. In other words, devotional service to Kṛṣṇa, in full consciousness, is the most confidential part of knowledge, and this is the essence of the whole Bhagavad-gītā. Karma-yogīs, empiric philosophers, mystics and devotees are all called transcendentalists, but one who is a pure devotee is the best of all. The particular words used here, mā śucaḥ, "Don't fear, don't hesitate, don't worry," are very significant. One may be perplexed as to how one can give up all kinds of religious forms and simply surrender unto Kṛṣṇa, but such worry is useless.

    • Really wonderful reply

  • The prime Motive Of all the major Religions in the World is to love God , Whtever name they may be calling Him By Doesnt matter.

    Jesus Christ (Son/Messanger of God) -- Christos means Krishna.

    Allah- also is a Name of Krishna

    Buddha is one of the 10 incarnations of Krishna.

    The Chief name of God is Krishna

    According to time ,place & circumstances God has sent his messangers ,or come by himself for diffrent Cultures to be Worshipped in a Diffrebt Way for their own Benefit. Well the Answer is Yes People Of Other Religions if they Properly Follow their Scripture to the Word can Attain Krishna. But Its Like they are Taking the staircase and we are taking the lift to Reach God.

    Haribol

        Hare Krsna Prabhuji,

        PAMHO.

        It is as per time, place, circumstance. That is the reason there is a difference in teachings in different religions. In some religions, it is simply stated - love God, without giving much information about God. In some others, more information is given. Like how a Class 2 student as well as a CA student - both know 2+2 = 4, but a CA student will also know how to make 2+2 = 5 or 3. That is the difference.

        As far as being an athiest is concerned, it is a personal choice. I would say it is a convenient choice to make - no need for any austerity, rules or regulations or purpose of life. Just chill, do what one feels like, blaspheme thiests and basically live life without being answerable to anyone.

        Nothing can be done.

        Haribol,

        Your servant,

        Radha Rasamayi DD
