The Most Confidential Knowledge


ye ’pyanya-devatā-bhaktā yajante śhraddhayānvitāḥ
te ’pi mām eva kaunteya yajantyavidhi-pūrvakam

Chapter 9, Verse 23

Translation:

Whatever a man may sacrifice to other gods, O son of Kunti, is really meant for Me alone, but it is offered without true understanding.

“People who are engaged in the worship of demigods are not very intelligent, although such worship is done to Me indirectly,” Krishn says.

We tried telling you that your path to find God and attain peace was mucked up. You didn’t listen!

This is a verse from “The Bhagwad Gita”. And as it should be apparent, I didn’t write it in there. And I am not making it up either.

The Message

The demigods are, so to speak, different officers and directors in the government of the Supreme Lord.

One has to follow the laws made by the government, not by the officers or directors.

Similarly, everyone is to offer his worship to the Supreme Lord only.

That will automatically satisfy the different officers and directors of the Lord.

The officers and directors are engaged as representatives of the government, and to offer some bribe to the officers and directors is illegal.

This is stated here as avidhi-purvakamIn other words, Krishn does not approve the unnecessary worship of the demigods.

Only other problem I have with this is; ‘Who is Krishn to approve or disapprove the unnecessary worship of the demigods”?

He is a demigod too.

And according to Hindu Mythology, there is not one but 3 Supreme Gods. Sadly, Krishn is not one of them.

Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. The Creator; The Preserver; and The Destroyer.

The problem is: Should Krishn be worshiped? If yes, why? I mean, he was the one who said that one doesn’t need to worship demigods.

And then he also said that people should only worship the “One Supreme God”. But then Hindu Mythology has 3.

So, which one to worship? And why?

Should Brahma be worshiped because he has created everything and we should be thankful?

Or should we worship Vishnu because he preserves everything we depend upon?

Or should we worship Mahesh? He is the “Destroyer of Worlds” after all!

P.S. I’ll leave you all with those questions today. This seems to be an interesting avenue. We’ll surely explore it further.

Until then, continue doing whatever the hell you were doing.

  1. It is interesting, though, that humans throughout the world from time immemorial seem intent on creating just such very similar stories, don’t you think? I’m reading Carla Jung right now to explore why that might happen.

    • Humans are afraid. They have some irrational fears.
      And you know, the thing is, ‘why people create similar stories’ or ‘why people do good’ aren’t substantial arguments to prove that God exists.
      Moreover, if Krishn is Supreme God, don’t you think all the temples of every other demigods, including Ram, should either never be built or should all be torn down?

    • That’s the confidential knowledge. Not everyone can know it.
      One needs to have that half knowledge multiplied by 4 times to understand that.
      You mostly have half divided by 2.
