Krishna the eternal God

“Whenever there is a setback to righteousness, whenever evil takes the upper hand, I manifest myself to ensure that the man treading the path of virtue is protected and he who tries to perpetuate hatred and destruction is punished”
You have given this solemn promise in Bagavat Gita, Krishna. I call You “Krishna”, my Lord , because that was the first name through you were introduced to me as the Supreme Spirit. You have thousands of names and You are the source of all that is good and sublime. My own brothers and sisters call You by many other names. You are the Jesus, You are the Allah, You are the Ahura Mazda, You are the Jehovah and..... What You are not?

You are the embodiment of the Spirit of unity and brotherhood. You appear as the eminent physician when we are suffering from illness, You appear before us as food when we are hungry, and You provide us with all that we require.
Objective in outlook, as we are supposed to be, we interpret all the phenomena in nature through the language of science. We are right in doing so in our own humble way. There is order and safety in this universe. As mere interpreters and often mere speculators we know that You are the moving force who creates maintain and if it is Your enlightened will, cause destruction, perhaps to create and bring things in a better order.
Your abode is everywhere. In search of Your supreme seat some seers pondered in Upanishads, “ In His presence, the sun does not shed his light, nor the moon and stars do have any power, what to talk of the fire-He is the storehouse of all energy and all others reflect some infinitesimally small part of His energy and pretend to be self resplendent . You are manifesting Yourself in the smallest energy photon or the tiny subatomic particle and at the same time You are the Virat Purusha who encompasses the entire Universe in your macroscopic form.

You manifested Yourself as Jesus two millennia ago, to show us the right path, to spread the message of peace and fraternity amongst us, Your flock. You took upon yourself all the sins we had committed and to expiate our sins, You adorned the thorny crown and mounted the Cross and performed the Supreme Sacrifice, and resurrected Yourself on the third day. You gave us your own flesh and blood, which symbolises our daily bread and wine.

You gave enlightenment to the Prophet, who waged the Holy War to save the semi-barbarian desert-dwellers from superstitions and religious practices opposed to reason and decency and show them the only right way of life--living in Universal Brotherhood.

You have declared unequivocally in Gita that wherever there is greatness, welfare, splendour or righteous power, there one can see a tiny speck of Your glorious manifestation . You said that You were abiding in the poorest of the poor and lowliest of the low.
Oh Krishna, it is time that You come out of Your hiding place--wherever You are-- and set the clock right once again. We, all of us, are Your own children and in that way, brothers and sisters, in spite of professing faith in different religions, talking different tongues, and claiming different racial origins or nationalities. However such differences have perpetuated themselves and created barriers, often insurmountably hostile, amongst ourselves. Even the blood of your dearest sons like Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. and many other martyrs, have not succeeded in quenching the thirst of the demoness of hatred and sectarianism. Many more enlightened souls who profess brotherhood and peace are likely to face martyrdom because the eyes of Your children are becoming blind to reason.
