O God, You Alone Know Yourself

Once a debate started among spiritual scholars of Banaras about the God. Every scholar wanted to prove that he knew the God best. Vedantist tried to prove it through Vedas, while others tried to prove it through other Puranas & other spiritual scriptures. Somehow everyone knew only of the some aspects of the God & tried to explain that in his own way. However God is Infinite, Omnipotent & Omnipresent. Nobody can know that Infinite God in totality. Only God himself can know himself fully. In Ramayana, it is said that, “Hari Anant, Hari Katha Ananta”, which means that “God is Infinite & His Stories are Infinite.”

Below verse of Bhagwat Gita also says that:

"svayam evatmanatmanam
vettha tvam purushottama
bhuta-bhavana bhutesa
deva-deva jagat-pate" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 15)

"Arjuna said to Lord Krishna: Indeed, You alone know Yourself by Your own internal potency, O Supreme human being, origin of all, Lord of all beings, God of gods, Lord of the universe!"

As per Bhagwat Gita, Supreme God Lord Krishna can be known by His devotees only. Those people who hate the Lord & are of demonic nature, do not know Him. Only those devotees who know Lord Krishna as Purusottama can know about Him who is the creator of all living entities. He is also the supreme controller of everyone & all these universes. He is the origin of all other demigods, so to worship some demigod is indirectly worshiping that Supreme Lord only, though not correctly as we can worship Him directly also. That Supreme Lord is also worshipped by all the demigods so we should directly worship that Lord.

Jai Shri Krishna
