Query: What is the difference between Krishna and the other enlightened tirthankaras
Your queries intrigue me. Your grasp of the spiritual world is
phenomenal! Your thirst for spiritual wisdom is evident from your queries. God bless
Krishna is considered as an Avatar of the era (god manifest in human
form). Ever since the existence of humanity on Mother Earth, Lord Krishna, Bhagwan Krishna was the first
Avatar! What is it that makes a human being rise to the level of an Avatar! What differentiates an Avatar
from man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed?
Lord Krishna and Bhagwan Kalki (the awaited one)... both are termed
Avatars (God manifest in human form). On the contrary every enlightened being becomes a man god like
Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed! The knower of Bhagavad Gita... all the sacred
wisdom existing in the Cosmos is termed a man god... one who gains enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally
The prime difference between an Avatar and man god is the difference in
their capabilities! Anyone who gains enlightenment becomes a man God. Every enlightened being becomes a man
God. Every Avatar is also a man God initially. But every man God is never an Avatar! Why?
Let me explain this point by an example -
If we throw a lawn tennis ball on the ground... it initially takes a
tip... the first strike on the ground! Again it jumps back forming a crest. This is the stage when Mahavira
is born! Again the ball goes down and jumps back! It forms a second crest and Gautama Buddha is born! In the
third strike Jesus Christ is born... in the fourth prophet Mohammed and so on.
The last two crests were formed when Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and
Maharishi Ramana came into the scene. Both of these man gods gained enlightenment in their lifetime! Time has
come for the ball to finally rest. There is no further energy left for the ball to make a crest! The present
Yuga... the Kali Yuga is about to end!
The dawn of a new era... the golden Yuga can only start with the coming
of an Avatar of the era... one who has the power to lift the ball and throw it again to form a new Yuga... a
new temporal cycle of life! The prime difference between a man God and an Avatar is the possession of
Every man God is a spiritual Master of the highest order. There is
nothing beyond the level of a man God that is achievable on the spiritual scale! Yet... on the administrative
front... all man gods are absolute failures! No man God can ever be expected to carry out dutifully the
responsibilities of the manifest world... the mortal world!
It simply can never be! Only when one ends the cycle of karma forever...
one gains enlightenment and finally salvation! Yet, amongst the mankind comes a time like the present Kali
Yuga when one amongst the ordinary not only gains enlightenment but also commands administrative discipline
of the highest order.
This is not a routine matter... it happens once every 3000 to 5000 years
when the ball completely loses energy! A simple human being... a loner makes it ones responsibility to put
the ball back on its pedestal... throw it again with full force! To re-establish Dharma (righteousness)...
powers much beyond than gaining enlightenment alone become necessary.
In the present Kali Yuga... people await with abated breath the coming of
Bhagwan Kalki... the annihilator of the present Kali Yuga... one who shall abolish adharma (lawlessness) and
re-establish Dharma (righteousness) forever! Bhagwan Kalki... the apt administrator would cleanse the society
of all the ills faced today.
This one-man army would succeed in killing 5.5 million people... the rot
of the society at large! Only then the present society... the ailing society find reprieve permanently! The
cosmic system has been built like that by God Almighty. It is not in the hands of mankind to change the
system... the laws of nature!
The combined power of Mahavira (a man God) and Chanakya (the most able
administrator world has ever seen) is what we know as Avatar (god manifest in human form)! To cleanse the
society of its ills is a gigantic task... something beyond the comprehension of most human beings... yet, it
would all become possible with the advent of Bhagwan Kalki!
Bhagwan Kalki is expected to surface around 2012 and by 2014 is expected
the dawn of a new era... the golden Yuga... the Satyuga! In between 2012 and 2014 is expected the fiercest
war the present era... a full scale nuclear war between Christianity and Islamic Dharma... the two fanatical
societies... religions not based on logistics!
Nostradamus has said this... and so do Bible and Quran! If negative karma
has been performed... the fruits of the same shall be reaped by both the societies... by both the religions!
As per the doctrine of karma we only reap what we sow... Nothing less or more! World War 3 that is expected
around 2012 would result in almost 1200 million people perishing from the world stage... a chaos of
The WTC affair was only a precursor of the events expected to take shape
in the near future! Whatever seeds of dissension USA and its allies sowed in the Middle East... the outcome
of the same would be witnessed shortly! In the name of WMD (weapons of mass destruction)... USA and its
allies not only created havoc but completely ruined the economy of sovereign countries like Afghanistan and
In the house of God... forgiveness is possible only if we repent! What if
the standards indicate a dictatorial style of functioning! The self declared watchdog of the world... the
superpower number one... the United States of America has overstepped its jurisdiction in wanting to control
the oil supplies of Iraq. The consequences would be disastrous! The entire world would reap the fruits of the
karma performed collectively by United States of America!
One can imagine the disaster in waiting... a man made one! Something more
fearful than anything created by nature!
To summarize... all the 24 tirthankaras of Jainism were man gods like
Mahavira... the 24 Tirthankara! Lord Krishna who came about thousand years earlier to Mahavira was an
Lord Krishna Lord Rama Hanuman - Lord Krishna God in
Human Form - Lord Krishna Incarnation of
God - Lord Shiva Indian Trinity of Gods - Shiva Lingam
