The sound of the word Krishna is heavenly. Krishna means the highest bliss. Everyone wants pleasure. But none of us knows how to fully achieve this bliss.
With the materialistic concept of life, we are desperate at every step in trying to achieve happiness, because we do not have the knowledge necessary to get real enjoyment of life. We are all in search of a friend who can give us true peace. Sri Krishna is that true peace.
Krishna can always be with us, because He is omnipotent. That is why he can be with us in his own name. His name and he are no different. Krishna being omnipotent means that everything related to him has equal power.
For example, if we are thirsty and want water, just repeating 'water-water' will not quench our thirst, because the word water does not have the same power as drinking water. We need water in substance, only then our thirst will be satisfied.
But in the otherworldly, absolute world, there is no such difference. The name of Krishna, the quality of Krishna, the word of Krishna - everything is Krishna and he provides the same satisfaction.
Many argue that Krishna was talking to Arjuna because he was standing in front of Arjuna, while Krishna is not present in front of us, then how can we get instructions from Krishna?
But this is not a fact. Krishna is present among us through his words i.e. Bhagavad Gita. When we speak on the Bhagavad Gita or Bhagavata, we regularly worship them with flowers.
In other religions also, worshiped texts are decorated with flowers likewise. That is, when we call the Bhagavad Gita as God, we do not call it wrong. Omnipresent means that he is indistinguishable from his instruction, from his name, from his quality, from his past. That is why the discussion of Bhagavad Gita is similar to the discussion of Lord Krishna.
Krishna sits in your heart as well as in my heart. Ishvara: Sarvabhutanam Hrideshde Arjuna Tishti God is located in the heart of every person. He is not far from us. He is so sociable that he is with us in every life cycle. He is waiting for when we will turn to him. He is so kind that even if we forget him, he never forgets us.
A son can forget his father, but a father can never forget his son. Similarly, God, the original father of all living entities, will never forget us. Our bodies may vary, but they do not matter.
It has nothing to do with our real identity. Our identity is pure soul and this pure soul is part of that divine. Lord Krishna says that all the species in the world are actually his sons. Krishna is the father of all and protects everyone.
Since Bhagavad Gita is related to the battlefield of Kurukshetra, some people have asked what we have to do in the battlefield. We have nothing to do with any battlefield.
We are in search of spiritual knowledge. Then why should we think of this battlefield? But since Shri Krishna is present in this battleground, the whole battlefield has become Krishnamay.
Just as when the electric current is connected to a metal, it becomes fully charged, in the same way when Krishna is present in a place, it becomes Krishnamay all over the place. Otherwise, there was no need to talk about the battlefield of Kurukshetra. This is the omnipotence of Krishna.
This omnipotence is also described in Srimad Bhagwat. There are many Krishna stories. Vedic literature is full of them. The Vedas refer only to Krishna.
The scriptures, including the Vedas, may seem different, but they are all for Krishna. If we only listen to these Krishna stories, what will be the result? There will be a pure earthly vibration, which will lead us all towards spiritual consciousness. Jai Shri Radhe-Krishna !
