Long Island, Week 14: [BG 4.7, 4.8] Purpose of the Avatars

Updated about 1 year ago.

BG 4.7 explains that Krishna appears in this world when there is a decline in morality, a rise in violence, when leaders rule against the well-being of their citizens. The current state of the world seems to fit this description. So, where is Krishna now?

Topics include:
- Krishna’s purpose for appearing in the world
- The different avatars of Krishna

Additional topics include:
- How do we know Krishna is the Supreme? Why take him at his word?
- A brief telling of Krishna’s birth and the lifting of Govardhan Hill
- Street chanting
- The arrival of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
