Who is God?

How does one recognize who God is? Anybody might claim to be God. The Vedic scriptures say that God is that person who has six opulences in full. These six opulences are beauty, fame, knowledge, renunciation, wealth and power. Therefore the Supreme Lord is understood to be Sri Krishna, as he descends and exhibits these six opulences in full.

  1. Now there is no scope for anyone to get cheated by these self-proclaiming "Gods", unless ofcourse, one is bent upon getting cheated. Like Srila Prabhupada says, the cheaters will get cheater gurus (and cheater "God").
    The process is simple, follow the scriptures & the bonafide samprada. Nothing more, nothing less!

  15. Sadhus like Radhanath Swami in proper vedic sampradaya or line of disciplic succession are the only ones who can give deep Spiritual knowledge and take their students back to Spiritual world.

    Such clear cut definition of who is God from vedic scriptures
