Our Inspiration

During His existence on earth in the human form, Lord Krishna is said to have assumed the Vishvarupa (the form of God) on two occasions. In the Bhagavad Gita, this avatar is described as –

“pasyamidevamstava deva dehe|

sarvamstathabhuta-visesa-sanghan|

brahmanamisamkamalasana-stham|

rsimscasarvanuragamscadivyan|”

This translates to – Vishvarupa has innumerable forms, eyes, faces, mouths, and arms. All creatures of the universe are part of him. He is the infinite universe, without a beginning or an end. He contains supremely peaceful and equally wrathful forms.

Through yet another verse, we learn that things don’t stop at any end, that there is a cycle. When something ends another begins. For the soul, there is never birth nor death.

Nor, having once been born, does the God ever cease to be. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing, undying and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.

“najayatemriyatevakadacin|

nayambhutvabhavitavanabhuyah|

ajonityahsasvato ‘yam purano|

nahanyatehanyamanesarire|”

It was during the founders’ confrontation with these verses that they came to realise that life is eternal, and childhood and old age are just two ends of the spectrum. It is at this point itself that the idea of KRISAT Educare Foundation came into being. After all, there is probably nothing more meaningful than to tend to the most cardinal creation of God, in its most feeble phases!
