Birth of Krishna

The Birth of Krishna: When God Came to Earth

Very interesting article delving into the Hindu faith, their holy book, the Bhagavad Gita and Krishna, their god (avatar). Yesterday was Krishna Janmastami, the Hindu holiday celebrating the birth or decent of Krishna to earth. It is good to learn more about the various faiths of the world and hinduism has one of the largest followings. If you read this article and think about how fanatical and impossible it seems to have been even remotely true, stop and think about your own religion and how people of other faiths may perceive your religion in the same way. When you think about it, most people are atheists of all the multitude of gods in the world and all of the infinite gods who once existed in man's mind but have long been forgotten or have been banished to mythology, except for their own personal god. Why is this? Why is it so easy to dispel the holy books and stories of everyone else's religion but believe so surely in your own as truth? Is it because of indoctrination by your parents/family a child? Is it geographic in nature? Is it community-driven? Fascinating questions into our very fragile human psyches...
