Radhanath Swami’s Article on God in Vedic Scriptures

radhanath swami on  God in vedic scriptures

In the Bible and in the Qur’an we find that God is scolding all sinners of this earth.  Sometimes He throws down fire and brings storms to destroy entire civilization.  Sometime He uses thunderbolts, sometimes devastating rain falls, and sometimes terrible plagues.  Sometimes He smashes people in some hellish condition.
But Shrimad-Bhagavatam is such scripture that explains God in His highest feature.  He is not throwing thunderbolts or sending plagues; He is hiding from His mother so that she will not scold Him.  Which form of God do we want to live with eternally?  I want to live with the beautiful, loving Krishna, who becomes the servant of the love of His devotee.  Actually what can conquer God—the supreme unconquerable, infallible one. Nothing but love.  Love does not conquer one by force, but it attracts the beloved to find the greatest pleasure in being subordinate to that love. That is Krishna—God who becomes subordinate to the love of His devotees.
