If Lord Krishna Lived with Us

Dernière mise à jour : 22 mai 2020

"If Lord Krishna lived with us,

if He dwelled yet among us,

if He walked now on these lands

restoring righteousness.

If Lord Krishna lived here

what would He think of us

when he looked around

and saw our foolishness,

our fighting and greed,

our hate and selfishness,

yet what would He think ?

O Lord, help us grow.

O Lord, help us learn.


If Lord Krishna lived with us,

if he dwelled yet among us,

if he walked now on these lands

restoring righteousness.

If Lord Krishna could hear

our bitter arguments

about Hindu creeds,

different traditions, when

groups claim they are right

and all the others wrong,

yes what would He think ?

O Lord, help us grow.

O Lord, help us learn.


If the Lord were to see

the devastation we have brought

upon Earth, its air and waters,

through our reckless misuse

and brash consumption,

yes what would He think ?


If the Lord were to judge

our deeds and attitudes,

and found in our hearts

our pride and arrogance,

our weakness and sin

and our hypocrisy,

yes what would He think ?"


'If Lord Krishna Lived with Us' - Song for children by Swami Tadatmananda


In the Bhagavad Gita (the Song of the Lord) Krishna comforts and advises his troubled disciple Arjuna by telling him about three paths. Each, he says, is a kind of yoga - a way to live in the world and at the same time maintain inner peace. They are :

- the path of action - karma yoga, He says is the ability to conscientiously evaluate one’s motivation, to act with skill and determination, and yet not be attached to the outcome of the action.

- the path of devotion - bakhti yoga, it is synonymous with a life of service. Often referred to people of art, expressing themselves through music, dance, words, paintings. The path of devotion begins with a shift in our perspective. Many of the great teachers inspired followers on the path of bhakti - path of love: giving, receiving, sharing and uniting. Finally, bhakti is a path of goodwill. With love in our heart it is possible to see beyond the faults and judgments which often shadow our relationships with others and with ourselves.

- the path of knowledge - jnana yoga, pursues knowledge with questions such as "who am I, what am I" among others. The practitioner studies usually with the aid of a counselor (guru), meditates, reflects, and reaches liberating insights on the nature of his own Self (Atman, soul).



Krishna is derived from the Sanskrit verb root 'krsh', a word that means “to draw or pull in, to draw to one’s self.” In yogic terms, Krishna’s voice is the voice of love, truth, and self-acceptance, flowing through one’s own soul. Be observer, be in peace with what you do or think, don't leave the ego to blind you for the beauty of the world. Always be humble, willing to learn and share your knowledge with the others, everyone will understand what they need to or are ready for at that moment, don't be concern about this.


Enjoy and just be !
