Note: The following words cannot be found in the whole Bhagavad-Gita Sanskrit to English translations:

This is because Lord Krishna is a responsible and loving person. The proven God of mercy and love. He commands His followers to be kind and loving to all living beings.

  1. Lord Krishna does Not divide humanity into believers and unbelievers, because He considers everyone as belonging to Him.
  2. Lord Krishna was personally present during the Mahabharat war. Not a single person was taken captive nor enslaved.
  3. Lord Krishna does Not advocate slavery, nor stoning, nor looting.
  4. Lord Krishna does Not advocate taking females captive, in war or outside of war.
  5. Lord Krishna does Not send those who do not follow Him to hellfire or hell. Nor does He advocate damnation or eternal suffering for any soul. This is because He considers all souls as His eternal friend and companions.
  6. Lord Krishna does not use fear to get followers, only love.
  7. Lord Krishna orders kindness to all living entities.

Lord Krishna is the well-wisher of everyone – The Beneficent

“The benefactor and well-wisher of all living entities...” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.29)

Lord Krishna is the dearest friend of everyone – The Most Kind

“I am the most dear friend... [to everyone]” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.18)

Lord Krishna treats everyone equally – The Most Gracious

“I envy no one, nor am I partial to anyone. I am equal to all...” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.29)

The true God is one who is equal to all His creations (all living beings) and partial to none.

Lord Krishna doesn’t command the killing of animals for food – The Most Benevolent

“If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I will accept it.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.26)

A devotee of Lord Krishna can only eat food that is first offered to Him (Bhagavad-Gita 9.27-28), and He only takes vegetarian food. Thus, the devotees should be pure vegetarian.

Lord Krishna commands His devotees to love all living entities – The Most Loving

“One who is not envious but is a kind friend to all living entities – such a devotee of Mine is very dear to Me...” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.13-14)

“Being purified by his intelligence and controlling the mind with determination, giving up the objects of sense gratification, being freed from attachment and hatred, one who lives in a secluded place, who eats little, who controls his body, mind and power of speech, who is always in trance and who is detached, free from false ego, false strength, false pride, lust, anger, and acceptance of material things, free from false proprietorship, and peaceful – such a person is certainly elevated to the position of self-realization.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.51-53)

Lord Krishna forgives – The Most Forgiving

“Even if you are considered to be the most sinful of all sinners, when you are situated in the boat of transcendental knowledge you will be able to cross over the ocean of miseries.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.36)

Lord Krishna has no enemies and commands His devotees to love the enemies too – The Most Merciful

“Who treats alike both friend and enemy...” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 14.22-25)

“One who is equal to friends and enemies, who is equipoised in honor and dishonor, heat and cold, happiness and distress, fame and infamy, who is always free from contaminating association, always silent and satisfied with anything, who doesn’t care for any residence, who is fixed in knowledge and who is engaged in devotional service – such a person is very dear to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.18-19)

Even the most sinful people can go back to the Kingdom of God if they simply stop sinning from this moment on, worship Lord Krishna, and follow His instructions - the Bhagavad-Gita.

Lord Krishna considers everyone to be His family member – The Lord of Pure love

“The living entities in this conditioned world are My eternal fragmental parts. Due to conditioned life, they are struggling very hard with the six senses, which include the mind.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.7)

Lord Krishna gives us all free will – The Most Caring

“Thus, I have explained to you knowledge still more confidential. Deliberate on this fully, and then do what you wish to do.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.63)

Lord Krishna does not force anyone to follow Him, nor curse, nor torment, nor instill fear. This is because Lord Krishna is the most responsible Person.

Lord Krishna gives highest morality teachings – The Most Responsible

“The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Fearlessness; purification of one’s existence; cultivation of spiritual knowledge; charity; self-control; performance of sacrifice; study of the Vedas; austerity; simplicity; nonviolence; truthfulness; freedom from anger; renunciation; tranquility; aversion to faultfinding; compassion for all living entities; freedom from covetousness; gentleness; modesty; steady determination; vigor; forgiveness; fortitude; cleanliness; and freedom from envy and from the passion for honor – these transcendental qualities, O son of Bharata, belong to godly men endowed with divine nature.“ (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.1-3)

“Pride, arrogance, conceit, anger, harshness and ignorance – these qualities belong to those of demoniac nature, O son of Prtha.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.4)

May there be good fortune throughout the universe, and may all envious persons be pacified. May all living entities become calm by practicing bhakti-yoga, for by accepting devotional service they will think of each other’s welfare. Therefore, let us all engage in the service of the supreme transcendence, Lord Sri Krishna, and always remain absorbed in thought of Him.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 5.18.9)
