    Hare Krsna

    Every scientific field has its own boundaries that define the scope of its discipline. These boundaries also limit the applicability of that stream of knowledge. It is not reasonable to expect nutritional value of food in terms nuclear science. If one is really interested in it one needs to search in the domain of life sciences or nutritional biology.

    Similarly if one wishes to understand God/Krishna in His full magnificence but only in terms of astrophysics, it may not be possible. Not because Krishna cannot be explained from that perspective but because Krishna is overwhelmingly larger beyond that discipline to entirely fit into it.

    Having said that although not completely but Krishna can described scientifically. The very first verse of Brahma samhita states

    ishvarah paramah krshnah
    anaadir aadir govindah
    sarva-kaarana-kaaranam (Brahma Samhita 5.1)

    Meaning - Krishna is the supreme controller. Krishna is a spiritual personality. Krishna is the origin who has not other origin. Krishna is the cause of all causes

    From astrophysics/metaphysics point of view there are many physical laws governing the astronomical bodies both at macro cosmos level as well as micro subatomic level. Krishna is the maker of these laws and the controller of these laws.
    God/Krishna is the maker of these laws whereas the scientists only discover these presence of pre-existing the laws.

    pashyanti paanti kalayanti ciram jaganti
    govindam aadi-purusham tam aham bhajaami (Brahma Samhita 5.32)

    Meaning - Krishna is the original personality who produces, oversees and maintains all the multi-universes of the cosmic manifestation.

    Hare krsna Saurabh prabhu,

    My obeisances to all devotees, guru and gauranga.

    What/Who is Krishna?
    I am not expecting the answer for Krishna as a person or mythical/historical figure. Expecting answer in terms of Astrophysics, Meta physics, Multiverse (If you know what i mean)​

    Srila Prabhupada has used simple English words (he has done the hard work for us which is his mercy) for us idiots and we still dont understand it. That is the level of our ignorance prabhu then how can we try to understand krsna in terms of Astrophysics, meta physics and what not..

    A pilot need not know how the entire plane is built. He just puts his faith in the manufacturing company and the people who put it together and he does his part is learning the controls and JUST fly the plane.. I have put my faith in Krsna conscious and Srila Prabhupada and my part is to JUST DEVOTE my mind, body and soul to fly to Krsna.

    To me the verse from BG 10.8 is enough to understand who and what Krsna is

    ahaḿ sarvasya prabhavo
    mattaḥ sarvaḿ pravartate
    iti matvā bhajante māḿ
    budhā bhāva-samanvitāḥ

    I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who perfectly know this engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts.

    I sincerely apologise if I have offended anyone with my words and response.

      Hare Krsna Krsna Dasa Prabhuji,


      Very good answer. When I saw the question, I was flummoxed. I dont know physics, what to speak of astrophysics or metaphysics. Multiverse - dont even know if it is a part of physics or something else.

      I am not trying to belittle you Saurabh prabhu. My personal opinion is - so much mental speculation is not required if we can train our mind to accept the words of guru, sadhu and shastra. In our case, guru is Srila Prabhupada. We all read his books and whatver philosophy we know is all thanks to him.

      You should chant minimum 16 rounds a day, eat only Krsna mahaprasad, read SP books daily and associate with devotees. All doubts in the mind will vanish.


      Your servant,



  • Why don't you keep aside who is Krishna for sometime and ask yourself the question who you are?
