Krishna’s Teachings

Krishna teaches in various parts of the Vedic literature, including large sections of the Srimad-Bhagavatam. The most famous collection of His words is the classic Bhagavad-gita, a refined treatise on great philosophical topics.

The Bhagavad-gita deals with five basic truths and their interrelation:

  • the nature of the finite souls
  • the position of the infinite soul, God
  • time, or the duration of existence
  • material creation and its laws
  • activities, or karma

In verse 9.34, Krishna gives the essence of all His teachings:

“Always think of Me, become My devotee, offer obeisances to Me, and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me.”
