The society now has 500 temples, schools and farm communities with a membership of 50 million worldwide.
Lord Krishna is the human incarnation of the Almighty God. Millions of people actually witnessed the glory of God in person, with their own eyes. Lord Krishna revealed himself as the origin of everything.
"The whole cosmic order is under Me. Under My will it is automatically manifested again and again, and under My will it is annihilated at the end." Lord Krishna (Bg. 9.8)
"All opulent, beautiful, and glorious creations spring from a spark of my splendor." Lord Krishna (Bg. 10.41)
The content of the Bhagavad Gita is a conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna taking place on the battlefield of Kurukshetra just prior to the start of a climactic war. Responding to Arjuna's confusion and moral dilemma, Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties and elaborates on number of different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies, with examples and analogies.
During the discourse, Krishna reveals his identity as the Supreme Being Himself (Bhagavan), blessing Arjuna with an awe-inspiring glimpse of His divine absolute form.
