• krishna is supreme than all as confirmed in bhagwad gita. shri shukdev goswami clearly said that lord krishna takes brahma,vishnu and shiva forms for creation,maintenance and for annihilation but these three deity are expansion of krishna therefore they posseses many qualities of krishna and as they are expansion of krishna they are also supreme but source is supreme lord krishna only . but supremeness or say who is supreme can increase your bhakti towards krishna or shiva ? actually lila katha means lord's pastimes increases bhakti. so you have listen to his lila kathas to achieve the truth !

    hari bol !

    Hare Krsna,
    My obeisances to all devotees, guru and gauranga.

    prabhu, your profile states that you do 21 rounds of japa but you never visited any iskcon temple. I am just trying to understand if this is another shiva/vishnu supremacy post as that topic contains the most threads on this forum.

    As Subash Anjuru prabhu has stated faith comes from within. No matter how many responses you get to your questions, your ultimate faith driver will rest with you. If your post is just to confirm your faith, then you are already inclined towards either Shiva or Krsna and will like responses favoring your faith.

    Krsna conscious cannot be forced, it is from Krsna's grace that one is attracted to him. Krsna gives the individual the knowledge and remembrance to come to Him. As Srila Prabhupada said to his western disciples "you guys dont have qualification, I gave you the qualification". We are not qualified to receive Krsna's mercy without Guru's blessings prabhu. The only way we became qualified is when Mahaprabhu gave us the maha mantra.

    The message is loud and clear in every scriptures you read, we just need a clear glass. Currently it is tainted with material dust. Bhagavad Gita has got all your questions covered and more as Amit Kapoor prabhu has stated to clear the dust from our heart and mind. Lets clear the dust so our Soul can breathe and revive its eternal relationship with Lord Krsna.

    ceto-darpana-marjanam bhava-maha--davagni-nirvapanam
    shreyah-kairava-chandrika-vitaranam vidya-vadhu-jivanam
    anandambudhi-vardhanam prati-padam purnamritaswadanam
    sarvatma-snapanam param vijayate sri-krishna-sankirtanam

    Glory to the Sri Krishna Sankirtana, which cleanses the heart of all the dust accumulated for years and extinguishes the fire of conditional life, of repeated birth and death. This sankirtana movement is the prime benediction for humanity at large because it spreads the rays of the benediction moon. It is the life of all transcendental knowledge. It increases the ocean of transcendental bliss, and it enables us to fully taste the nectar for which we are always anxious.

    Keep your japa going and He will show you Himself who is superior prabhu.

    Dont take my response personally.

    Hare krsna

  • Prabhuji,

    Lets say you ask this question to some 1000 people. Not just in this community but outside of it too. Some would say Krishna is supreme and some would say Shiva is supreme and they would quote their reasons accordingly. Each would think that theirs is the right belief based on writings in the scriptures and would argue. But the fact remains that, there are no right or wrong beliefs. There are just beliefs which people acquire based on their nature. Therefore, you too can hold onto a belief and move on with that. So, please leave aside the doubt. Just hold onto what your heart points to.

    BG 17.3

    O son of Bharata, according to one’s existence under the various modes of nature, one evolves a particular kind of faith. The living being is said to be of a particular faith according to the modes he has acquired.
