Krishna is not just out there, He is also here! Diksha Mataji (Gita Daily)

Published on Jul 25, 2013

Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 15, Text 15

When life hands out difficulties to us, we may feel forlorn and deserted due to the thought that Krishna is far away, somewhere out there in the vast emptiness of space. Gita wisdom informs us that nothing could be further from the truth. Krishna is surely far away in the spiritual world, but being omnipresent he is also close by, right here in our own hearts.

The Bhagavad-gita (15.15) confirms this when it declares that Krishna personally resides in the hearts of all living beings. The revelation of Krishna’s indwelling presence comes at the end of a series of verses (15.12)(15.13)(15.14) that demonstrate his love for all of us. By giving examples that range from the external cosmological realm to the internal physiological realm, these verses indicate that Krishna, out of love for us, maintains the entire material realm to facilitate our existence. His love for us is so great that he is not satisfied just by arranging for our material existence; he also arranges for our spiritual welfare by making himself available to us in our own hearts as a friend and guide.

Why is Krishna personally present in our heart?
