the Paramatma or Guardian Angel
... there are very striking similarities between Krisna Conciousness
and Christianity, the one I will mention here is the Paramatma, or Supersoul,
or Gurdian Angel, which sits in every living being's heart, and tries to
guide each of our souls back to the Godhead, back to the Garden of Eden
We fell from grace, but God wants each of us back, but only after
we are done with the material world. We are like children playing
in a sandbox.
The following is from the Bhaktivedanta purports of the First Canto, Second Chapter,
of Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled "Divinity and Divine Service."
" There are innumerable material universes, and in each and every universe
there are innumerable planets inhabited by different grades of living enti
ties in different modes of nature. The Lord (Vishnu) incarnates Himself in
each and every one of them and in each and every type of living society.
He manifests His transcendental pastimes amongst them just to create the
desire to go back to Godhead. The Lord does not change His original
transcendental position, but He appears to be differently manifested
according to the particular time, circumstances and society.
Sometimes He incarnates Himself or empowers a suitable living being
to act for Him, but in either case the purpose is the same: the Lord wants
the suffering living being to go back home, back to Godhead. The happiness
which the living beings are hankering for is not to be found within any
corner of the innumerable universes and material planets. The eternal
happiness which the living being wants is obtainable in the kingdom of
God, but the forgetful living beings under the influence of the material
modes have no information of the kingdom of God. The Lord, therefore,
comes to propagate the message of the kingdom of God either personally
as an incarnation or through His bona fide representative as the good son
of God. Such incarnations or sons of God are not only making propaganda
for going back to Godhead within human society. Their work is also going
on in all types of societies, amongst demigods and those other than human
So listen to your Paramatma, or Supersoul, who guides your soul thru intuition.
The Bible justs glosses over the details of how the heavenly powers work,
but the Vedic literature lays it out plain as day, to anyone who sincerely
seeks the path back to the Godhead.
