Is Krishna also Christ?
The Master seemed delighted as he started instructing Chester. "In the Bhagavad-Gita, we learn that Krishna created everything and sustains all things by his glory. Chapter 9 teaches that the entire material universe is created, prevaded, maintained and sustained by him. In Chapter 10 we learn that he is the source of everthing and that all existence is because of Lord Krishna. '... I am the seed of all creatures; nothing animate or inanimate could exist without me.'
In John 1 of the Christian New Testament we are taught that 'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth .... grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.'
We also learn in the Bhagavad-Gita that total devotion to Krishna will allow man to achieve eternal life and never know death again.
In the New Testament we learn that Christ is the the only way. '...that whosoever believeth in Christ should not perish, but have everlasting life.'
What does your logic tell you about this paradox?" The Master waited.
Chester licked his lips. "Here are two different religions revealing to us the creator of all things who, is also the way to achieve eternal life. Either one is a fraud or both are the same holy manifestation recorded at different times from two different cultural and historical viewpoints. The logic is clear and simple."
The Master announced, "The Krishna of Ancient Hinduism is the Christ of Christianity. Christ comes from the Greek word Christos, and Christos is the Greek
version of the word Krishna. When an Indian person calls on Krishna,
he often says "Krista." Krishna is a Sanskrit word meaning the object
of attraction." So when we address God as "Christ," "Krista,"
or "Krishna," we indicate the same all-attractive Supreme Personality
of Godhead. When Jesus said, "Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed
be Thy name," that name of God was Krista or Krishna. "Christ" is
simply another way of saying "Krista," and "Krista" is another way of
