Krishna's Mystery

"Krishna's mystery and miracles are beyond words. He was everything to all people. He is the indweller in the heart of everyone. There is no room for religious differences." Sai Baba. SS, 10/96, p. 258

Purpose Of The Krishna Incarnation

"The Divine incarnates from age to age for the purpose of protecting the virtuous, punishing the wicked and establishing Dharma. Krishna is said to have destroyed many wicked persons. But this is not quite correct. It is their own wickedness which destroyed these evil persons." Sai Baba, SS, 10/94, p. 260

"It was the middle of the Dwapara Yuga. Unable to bear the atrocities committed on good people by demonic rulers, the goddess of Earth prayed to the Lord in many ways. Offering solace to the grief-stricken goddess. The Lord said: 'Devi! You may return to the earth. I shall do what needs to be done. You will be relieved of your burden.' "Encouraging her in this way, the Lord sent Mother back to the world. Thereafter, the Lord summoned all the Devas (denizens of the celestial world) and directed them to take birth as Yadavas." Sai Baba, SS, 10/94, p. 253

Krishna's Advent Was To Grant Freedom

"Krishna was born on Ashtami (the eighth day of the lunar month). From the moment of birth. He was subject to troubles. But whoever cherished the Name of the Lord in the heart was free from bondage. Vasudeva was a prisoner. But the moment Devaki placed infant Krishna on her husband's head, he became free. The moment the Lord touched his head, Vasudeva's fetters dropped away. As long as he carried Krishna on his head and till he deposited the child in Repalle, he was free. He placed the child in Yashoda's house. Then he returned to his prison and became bound as before. What is the meaning of this episode? As long as the Divine thoughts fill our minds, there is no bondage. But when you give up the Lord, you get bound in every way." Sai Baba, SS, 9/93, p. 227

 

Attributes Of The Krishna Avatar

"Among all the Avatars, the Avatar of Krishna is the most attractive incarnation. The very word 'Krishna' means one who attracts." Sai Baba, SS, 9/89, p. 231

"The Krishna Avatar is hailed as "Puma Avatar", compared to all previous Avatars. Vyasa could obtain peace of mind only when, on the advice of Sage Narada, he began to write about the glorious incarnations of the Lord (described in the Bhagawatam). All his earlier writings, including the'codification of the Vedas and the writing of the Puranas, could not confer peace on him." Sai Baba, SS, 10/94, p. 262

"The incarnation of Krishna proclaimed the doctrine of divine love, as manifested by the Gopikas." Sai Baba, SS, 8/95, p. 229

"Though all incarnations are Divine, Krishna Avatar was special in this sense that he spent all his time smiling and smiling, full of love. At no point of time, he was angry, he was always smiling. This is the main quality of God. God has no trace of ego or pride or jealousy whatsoever. Such sacred qualities are present only in the Sai Avatar again. In no other incarnation, this was noticed. Though Divinity is uniform in all the incarnations, each Avatar expressed Himself on the basis of the prevalent circumstances. So, you should develop full faith in God." Sai Baba, SS, 9/98, p. 229
