    • mattaù parataraà nänyat kiïcid asti dhanaïjaya mayi sarvam idaà protaàsütre maëi-gaëä iva
    • O conqueror of wealth,there is no truth superior to Me. Everything rests upon Me, as pearls are strung on a thread. REF. Bg 7.7
    • vedaiç ca sarvair aham eva vedyo vedänta-kåd veda-vid eva cäham
    • By all the Vedas, I amto be known.Indeed, I amthe compiler of Vedänta,and I am the knower of the Vedas. REF. Bg 15.15
    • After seeing the universal form of Krishna,Arjuna says
    • paraà brahma paraà dhäma pavitraà paramaà bhavän puruñaà çäçvataà divyam ädi-devam ajaà vibhum
    • Arjuna said: You are the Supreme Personality of Godhead, theultimate abode,the purest, theAbsolute Truth. …
    • … You are the eternal,transcendental, original person, the unborn, the greatest.
    • ähus tväm åñayaù sarve devarñir näradas tathä asito devalo vyäsaùsvayaà caiva bravéñi me
    • All the great sages such as Närada, Asita, Devala and Vyäsa confirmthis truth about You, and nowYou Yourself are declaring it to me.REF. Bg 10.12-13
    • Just like thedesign engineers & Bill Gates at MICROSOFT will best know about their latest
    • Likewise thecompiler of ALL the Vedic literatures will best know who Supreme Lord is.
    • All the Vedic literaturesare compiled by Srila Vyasadeva- who is the literary incarnation of God.
    • Srimad-Bhagavatam is final work ofVyasadeva
    • In Srimad- Bhagavatam Vyasadeva mentions variousincarnations of Supreme Lord
    • Vämana
    • Nåsiàha
    • Kurma
    • Buddha
    • Kapila
    • Varaha
    • Parashurama

    • After mentioning various incarnations, he writesete cäàça-kaläù puàsaù kåñëas tu bhagavän svayamindräri-vyäkulaà lokaà måòayanti yuge yuge
    • All of the above- mentionedincarnations are either plenary portions or
    • portions ofthe plenary portions of the Lord, but,
    • Lord ÇréKåñëa is the originalPersonality of Godhead.
    • All of them appear on planets whenever there is a disturbance created bythe atheists.
    • The Lordincarnates to protect the theists.REF. SB 1.3.28
    • THEN WHO ARETHE DEVATAS?
    • Just like in our country there isone prime minister
    • & so manyministers.… Likewise …
    • The demigods are empowered administrators of material affairs. Thesupply of air, light, waterand all other benedictions for maintaining the body and soul of every living entity is entrusted …
    • … to the demigods, who are innumerable assistants indifferent parts of the body of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
    • The Supreme Lord, who isknown as the yajïa-puruña, orthe personal beneficiary of allsacrifices, is the master of allthe demigods, who serve Him as the different limbs of the
    • When Lord Kåñëa isworshiped, thedemigods, who are different limbs of the Lord,
    • are also automatically worshiped; therefore there is noseparate needto worship the demigods.
    • kämais tais tair håta- jïänäù prapadyante ’nya- devatäù taà taà niyamam ästhäya prakåtyä niyatäù svayä
    • Those whose intelligencehas been stolen by material desires surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own natures.
    • yo yo yäà yäà tanuà bhaktaùçraddhayärcitum icchati tasya tasyäcaläà çraddhäà täm eva vidadhämy aham
    • I am in everyone’s heart as the Supersoul. As soon as one desires to worship some demigod, I make his faith steady so that he can devotehimself to that particular deity.
    • sa tayä çraddhayä yuktas tasyärädhanam éhate labhate ca tataù kämänmayaiva vihitän hi tän
    • Endowed withsuch a faith, he endeavors to worship a particular demigod and obtains his desires. …
    • … But in actuality these benefits arebestowed by Me alone. REF. Bg 7.22
    • antavat tu phalaà teñäàtad bhavaty alpa-medhasäm devän deva-yajo yänti mad-bhaktä yänti mäm api
    • Men of small intelligence worship the demigods, and their fruits are limited andtemporary. Those who worship the demigods go tothe planets of the demigods, …
    • but My devoteesultimatelyreach My supreme planet.REF. Bg 7.23
    • Towards the end of Bhagavad-gita Lord Krishna emphatically says: sarva-dharmän parityajya mäm ekaà çaraëaà vraja ahaà tväà sarva-päpebhyo mokñayiñyämi mä çucaù
    • Abandon all varieties of religion andjust surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear.
    • We summarize: There is one and only oneSupreme God.
    • There are manyincarnations , but Krishna is the original Supreme Personalityof Godhead.
    • This theverdict ofVyasadeva & other greatacharyas.
    • Krishna personally declares in Bhagavad-gitathat there is no TRUTH superior to Him & He is the source of everything.
    • Just like there is one prime minister & manyother ministers, likewise …
    • … there is one SupremeGod & many demigods & demigoddesses. (devi & devatas)
    • The demigods are innumerable assistants of the SupremePersonality of Godhead and are empoweredadministrators of material
    • Those who are devotees of other gods and who worshipthem with faithactually worshipKrishna ONLY,but they do so in a wrong way.
    • Krishnarecommend sworshipingHim alone(mäm ekaà çaraëaà vraja).
    • Hare Kris h n a!
