I am pasting below a Question from African Meditation Teacher. Wise ones Pls enlighten this Man by formatting your Reply..
"In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna explained his involvement in the history of the humanity. There is a particular statement where he declared this, but it bring to question as to if Krishna exaggerated the claim or if he had some meaning which only He could explain. If someone tells us that he will come to us every time there is trouble, what does that mean on the practical end of things?
Will he come physically? Will he come physically some of the time and supernaturally some of the time? How do we know?
Whenever there is a decrease of righteousness, O son of the Bharata family, and when there is an increase of wickedness, then I show Myself. (4.7)
To protect the saintly people, to destroy the wicked ones, and to establish righteousness, I come into the visible existence from era to era. (4.8)
This is a tough sell because there is no evidence that Krishna appeared as he appeared in the time of Arjuna, after the time of the Kurukshetra battle. If we are to accept what he said at face value, what exactly does he mean by stating that he appears whenever there is a decrease in righteous conduct?
When there are wars, does Krishna appear as army commanders? When there is social injustice, does he appear as revolutionaries or social reformers? "
I will make sure you answer satisfies his CURIOISTY..
