Lord Krishna’s Teachings and Sayings To The World

New Delhi: Lord Krishna is a major deity in Hinduism. He is worshipped as the eighth avatar of the god Vishnu. He is the god of compassion, tenderness and love in Hinduism. He is a central character in the Mahabharata, the Bhagavata Purana and the Bhagvad Gita. Krishna Janmashtami is just around the corner, it’s the right time to remember all his teachings and sayings that he taught and said  during the Mahabharata.

1. Whenever dharma declines and the purpose of life is forgotten, I manifest myself on earth. I am born in every age to protect the good, to destroy evil, and to reestablish dharma.

2. Among  animals I am the lion; among birds, the eagle Garuda. I am Prahlada, born among the demons, and all of that measures, I am time.

3. I am the, destroyer of all; I have come to consume the world.

4. That one is dear to me who runs not after the pleasant or away from the painful, grieves not, lusts not, but lets things come and go as they happen.

5. These are the three gates to this self-destructive hell: lust, anger, and greed. Renounce these three.

6. Pleasure from the senses seems like poison at first, but tastes like nectar in the end - this is the joy of sattva, born of a mind at peace with itself.

7. Whatever you do, make it an offering to me – the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your suffering.

8. They are forever free who renounce all selfish desires and break away from the encourage of “I”, ”Me” and “mine” to be united with the Lord. This is the supreme state. Attain to this, and pass from death to immortality.

9. The meaning of Karma is in the intention. The intention behind action is what matters. Those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of action are miserable, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.

10. There is nothing in the three worlds for me to gain, Arjuna, nor is there anything I do not have; I continue to act, but I am not driven by any need of my own.

11. Approach those who have realized the purpose of life and question them with reverence and devotion; they will instruct you in this wisdom.
