Chapter-6. Lord Sri Krishna – The Purna-Avataram
The peculiarity and the speciality of the life of Bhagavan Sri Krishna was that, as I have already hinted, He was an all-comprehensive personality.
He was a householder and not a Sannyasin.
He had wife and children.
He was a politician and a statesman.
He was a soldier and also a servant when the time demanded that kind of attitude from Him.
And at the same time, He was a person with a comprehensive understanding of the various shades of the difference which relationships put on among things.
Therefore, it is difficult to understand, ordinarily, the significance behind many of the things that He did and also many of the things He said, especially in the Bhagavadgita.
The Mahabharata and the Srimad Bhagavata are the monumental records of His life, His activities and His achievements.
The Bhagavadgita may be regarded as the great gospel that He gave to mankind.
It is as difficult to understand His teaching as it is to understand His own life, because He did not think as we are thinking.
His thinking does not comply with the sentimental demands of our human feelings, ethical sense, the usual social morality, and so on and so forth, which we entertain in our own hearts.
