Krishna

"The most significant event in the Indian history was the coming of Lord Krishna in the human body. Krishna gave people the Bhagavad Gita that contained the complete knowledge as to how and where they should seek the Creator, what God is, and what the purpose of human life consists in. And a great number of people, undoubtedly, attained full spiritual Self-Realization thanks to this Divine Teaching."

"Krishna explained that there exists Ishvara (God-the-Father, the Creator, the Highest Purusha), Whose Will is realized through Brahman (the Holy Spirit, the Supreme Purusha). God can also appear before people as an Avatar (God-the-Son, Messiah, Christ), by incarnating with a Part of Himself into a human body. Besides that, there are physical matter (prakriti) and individual souls (purusha) that evolve. There is also akasha that is, a diffusive state of prakriti and purusha (so called protoprakriti and protopurusha). Protoprakriti and protopurusha are the materials for creating matter and souls.

The Creator abides in the deepest (as related to physical matter) layer (loka, eon, dimension) of the Unified multidimensional Body of the Universal Absolute, which also includes all "visible" (i.e. material) worlds of countless galaxies.

The Absolute is a Unified Universal Organism of incomprehensible for human beings immense size. It is multidimensional, i.e. it consists of several layers (lokas).

The Evolution of the Absolute constitutes Its life. It consists in qualitative and quantitative growth of individual consciousnesses (jeevas, souls), as elements of purusha, on prakriti (planet matter) in the bodies, also composed of prakriti. These souls should develop qualitatively and quantitatively, seeking to attain Divinity, to merge with Brahman and Ishvara. Souls, which deviate from this Path or move in the opposite direction, doom themselves to sufferings according to the " law of karma " (the law of cause and effect in the formation of destiny)."
