That brings us to Krishna’s Universe. It needs some understanding. I have a grand son who is 18 months old. His world or universe is so limited. He has his toys. He knows a few people i.e mom, dad, grand mom and grand Dad. He is not concerned about an election going on in Iran or a nuclear test that goes on in North Korea. Then there are people like me and you. I have a world of medicine and meditation. I play golf and take part in some organizations. Some days I am happy and some days I am not so happy. Head of a state has a different world. President of United States of America has to watch all around the world. He has to keep an eye on what goes on the space, who is going to moon and who is going to Mars and so on. He is truly a global leader of today. His decisions can make or break nations. His range of responsibilities are similarly more expansive than most of us.
Krishna lives in a different domain. His responsibilities are even more expansive. Let us try to understand that more. We live in a world that we can see, touch and feel. Whether or not you believe in after life or not, one thing is sure. Once we die we go to another space. There is this other world that most of us think exists. I for sure know that the unseen world is larger than the world we see. The two worlds are interdependent. What happens in one universe has profound effect on the other. The manifest world that we live in is the world of happenings. We have physical bodies and the bodies can engage in the work and whatever happens around. An order here is more important than we can comprehend.
Krishna has to worry about this world that we can see and feel and the world beyond that we cannot. He is aware of a value system (Dharma) that is important for the health of both domains. Actually, there is description of three such domains. There are three universes. Some claim they are all parallel universes. They all exist here and now. Krishna can see all the three and has the responsibilities for all the three. Can we know the other domains as we are? I am sure we can. I have described some techniques in the Meditation section which can help in that direction. Let’s all work towards that goal.
