Why does ISKCON say Lord Krishna is the Supreme God when we know that Lord Shiva is Supreme?

Answer by Niraj Bidawatka

Because you are in ignorance when you say that Lord Shiva is Supreme. Therefore ISKCON has to give authentic and factual information to you. The Bhagavad Gita is the most authoritative scripture in the entire world. It is considered the essence of all the Upanishads.

Lord Krishna displays His universal form to Lord Brahma

Lord Krishna displays His universal form to Lord Brahma – Krishna is source of all Vishnu murtis

You will not find a single verse in the Bhagavad Gita, which states that Lord Shiva is Supreme. The entire Bhagavad Gita states that Lord Krishna is Supreme. Therefore Srila Vyasadeva, the author of the Bhagavad Gita addresses Lord Krishna as “Bhagavan”.

Bhagavad Gita means “the song of God”. Everyone knows that Bhagavad Gita was spoken by Lord Krishna and not by Lord Shiva.

Since ISKCON strictly follows Bhagavad Gita, it states that Lord Krishna is Supreme.

Even Shankaracharya, the incarnation of Lord Shiva, has accepted Bhagavad Gita as the highest authoritative scripture and has directed all his followers to worship Lord Krishna. His famous directions are as follows:

bhaja govindam bhaja govindam

govindam bhaja mudha mate

Sripada Shankaracharya addressed his disciples as fools (mudha mate), because they did not accept Lord Krishna as Supreme. Therefore he directs his foolish disciples to worship Krishna (bhaja govindam) because only Krishna can save them at the time of death.

  1. You are in ignorance when you called lord Krishna is supreme n only iskcon people are doing propaganda that he is supreme n another one is not but iskcon people are making fights between the devotees of Gods forms either it is lord Krishna or lord shiva or Lord Hanuman or anyone else so please stop creating misunderstanding between devotees of gods n keep chanting Hari Hara name
