      In the Gita Krishna talks about seeing Himself in all creatures?  Given that we hardly know who or what Krishna is, how might we build up to this? Where does one start?

        Gerry, Some thoughts…I think of “Himself” as the male/generative force in nature. Krishna had a consort, Rada, who would be seen as the feminine aspect. So, Himself corresponds to not only reproduction, but the chain of DNA. 🙂 -Kate

    ” Whatever thou doest, whatever thou eatest, whatever thou sacrificest, whatever thou givest in charity, whatever austerity thou performest, O son of Kunti, do that as an offering unto Me.”

     

        Shri Krishna

     

    ” Once that a student abandons the old and trodden highway of routine, and enters upon the solidarity path of independent thought — Godward — he is a Theosophist, an original thinker, a seeker after the ethernal truth, with “an inspiration of his own” to solve the universal problems.”

      H.P. Blavatsky
