We often hear, God is present everywhere, God is in everything. The question is how many of us believe the concept. Here, I am delineating some knowledge about the residence of God and talking back to the question; where Krishna lives?
Prior to any intellectual dialogue, I pay my homage to the Lotus Feet of Krishna and offer huge respect to the Gita Quest Team for being a guide to me on the path of spirituality.
On the auspicious day of Gita Jayanti, I present my humble obeisance to the greatest speech of all time uttered by Lord Krishna Himself on the battle ground of Kurukshera.
His Supreme Abode
We are blessed that we can share the words of Almighty who Himself guided us on the way to His home and accosted patently about His supreme abode. Adherent verse to para marked His words as they are.
Translation: That which the Vedāntists describe as unmanifest and infallible, that which is known as the supreme destination, that place from which, having attained it, one never returns – that is My supreme abode.
Krishna is All-Pervading
I applaud the idea that fixed faith in people’s minds that God is everywhere, because it is an absolute truth. The holy scripture Sri MadBhagwat Gita itself unveils this fact. The following verse is a demonstration of the belief:
Translation: The Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is greater than all, is attainable by unalloyed devotion. Although He is present in His abode, He is all-pervading, and everything is situated within Him.
No doubt, Krishna is all pervading but the complete answer is yet to be disclosed. The residence of Krishna is transcendental and hard to understand for us who outfall in the material world. Since Krishna is gracious, He suggests us the means to understand Him and His abode. The under-mentioned shaloka recited by Lord Krishna Himself states that He stays in our heart for eternity.
अहमात्मा गुडाकेश सर्वभूताशयस्थित: । अहमादिश्च मध्यं च भूतानामन्त एव च ॥ Bg 10.20
Translation: I am the Supersoul, O Arjuna, seated in the hearts of all living entities. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings.
