I recently read this version of the Bhagavad-Gita. Below is a list of 10 similarities between the Bible and the Gita.



# GitaBible (NIV)
1. I am the way, sustainer, lord,
witness, shelter, refuge, friend,
source, dissolution, stability,
treasure, and unchanging seed (p85).
John 14:6 = Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
2. I am the self abiding
in the heart of all creatures;
I am their beginning,
their middle, and their end. ...

Arjuna, I am the seed
of all creatures;
nothing animate or inanimate
could exist without me
(p92, 94).
John 1:2 = He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
3. He who sees me everywhere
and sees everything in me
will not be lost to me,
and I will not be lost to him (p67).
Matt 18:20 = For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
John 6:56 = Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
John 14:20 = On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
John 17:21 = that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
4. I am the vowel a of the syllabary,
the pairing of words in a compound;
I am indestructible time,
the creator facing everywhere at once (p93).
Rev 1:8 = "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." [Also see Rev 21:6, 22:13]
5. When they know that a day of Brahma
stretches over a thousand eons,

and his night ends a in a thousand eons,
men understand day and night (p79).
2 Peter 3:8 = ... With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. [Also see Psalm 90:4.]
6. You know yourself through the self,
Krishna; Supreme among Men,
Sustainer and Lord of Creatures,
God of Gods, Master of the Universe (p91)!
Deut 10:17 = For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, ... [Also see Psalm 136:2, Daniel 2:47, 11:36]
7. Mired in this view, lost to themselves
with their meager understanding,
these fiends [those who do not believe in gods] contrive terrible acts
to destroy the world (p134).
Matt 12:30 = "He who is not with me is against me,...
1 John 2:22 = Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist;he denies the Father and the Son.
8. Vile, deluded sinners are the men
who fail to take refuge in me [Lord Krishna];
their knowledge ruined by magic,
they fall pray to demonic power (p73).
See above for more on the "vile, deluded" part. ;)
Also note: God is the "rock of refuge" in the Old Testament (Psalm 18:2, 31:2, 62:7, etc).
9. Relinquishing all sacred duties to me,
make me your only refuge;
do not grieve,
for I shall free you from all evils (p152).
2 Thess 3:3 = But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
Matt 6:13 (KJV) = And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil..
Exodus 20:5 = ..for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God.. [Also see Exodus 34:14, Deut 4:24, 5:9, 6:15, 32:16, Joshua 24:19, Nahum 1:2]
10. You are the original god,
the primordial spirit of man,
the deepest treasure
of all that is,
knower and what is to be known,
the supreme abode;
you pervade the universe,
Lord of Boundless Form (p105).
I couldn't find a single biblical passage that encompasses this same idea... more like the entire Bible itself is this idea...

Wow!

Thank you.

This is very good.

I am a Christian who believes that God came inany different forms for many different kinds of believers around the world. At the end of the day there is one true God and merely provided a holy book in many languages is all.


Thank you once again for this!!

Bible and Hinduism
I every culture, there is a story of a great flood and of survival...when men began to grow in numbers after the flood, their language was confused and they instantlt spoke different tongues. Communication between the langusge groups was neigh on imposible, so they went their seperate ways...but they all took knowledge of this flood with them...they also took knowledge of the God of Noah...As time passed by, this knowledge of the flood and of the True God became corrupted and men began to embelish their beliefs... and we see in relgions past and present, glimses of the original true belief...Take for example Hinduism. In hinduism their is the god Vishnu, the preserver of life...take away the 'V' from 'Vishnu' [Sanskrit] and we are left with 'Ishnu', which is non other than the Hebrew name for 'Noah'. What we see then and now are just takes on the original belief of Noah and his God...!

For more information, see 'letusreason' @ www.thoughts.com'

type in the search box 'letusreason' and look for the subject realted to Buddhism and the Trinity.

Re: Bible and Hinduism

This is true, and is probably the result of the necessity of primitive cultures being located next to large bodies of water (due to poor irrigation practices). Combine that with the fact that all waters flood, and we should expect to see fantastical stories of floods from around the world. The oldest such story, the Epic of Gilgamesh is probably what the biblical account is based on.

when men began to grow in numbers after the flood, their language was confused and they instantlt spoke different tongues

This part is not true. Only the bible combines flood stories with language breakups.

on Number 4.
"I am the Supersoul, O Arjuna, seated in the hearts of all living entities. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings."~BG 10.20(As it is)
That's very similar to Rev 1:8.

There are many similarities between Krishna and Christ. From virgin birth to teachings and death.
A snippet "Christ comes from the Greek word 'Christos', which means "the anointed one". Again, the word 'Krishna' in Greek is the same as 'Christos'. A colloquial Bengali rendering of Krishna is 'Kristo', which is the same as the Spanish for Christ — 'Cristo'."

BIBLE IS PURELY A COPY OF BHAGAWAD GEETA
Lord Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-Gita on the battlefield of Kuruksetra in 3102 B.C.; just prior to the commencement of the Mahabharata war. This date corresponds to 1700 years before Moses, 2500 years before Buddha, 3000 years before Jesus and 3800 years before Mohammed. So first and foremost it should be clearly understood that the eternal knowledge of the Bhagavad-Gita has not been influenced by Buddhism, Christianity, Hebrewism or Islam; for these religions did not exist at that time and were established milleniums later.

That proof of the date 3102 B.C. can be verified by any knowledgeable indologist in India based on the fact that this was the year when the Pandava King Yudhisthira ascended the throne and was coronated as emperor of the Earth. Also according to the Aihole inscription of Pulakesin II, the Battle of Kuruksetra took place in 3102 B.C. with Lord Krishna reciting the Bhagavad-Gita before its commencement. As well precise information of the positions of the constellation at the commencement of the Battle of Kuruksetra have been given in the great historical epic Mahabharata itself, which is based on the 26,920 year astronomical cycle known as the precession of the equinoxes which is the time it takes our solar system to revolve around the central sun.

But who exactly is Lord Krishna? Is He Narayana? Is He Vishnu? Is He Vasudeva as referred to in the Taittirya Aranyaka 10.1. 6 ? In the Bhagavad-Gita the Supreme Lord Krishna is addressed by Arjuna with 41 different names. Some of these names are Acyuta, Bhagavan, Govinda, Hari, Isvara, Janardana, Kesava, Madhava, Purusottama and Yogesvara as well as Vasudeva and Vishnu. Although Lord Krishna possesses unlimited names due to His unlimited attributes and potencies it should be clearly understood that the Krishna who is so wonderfully presented in the Puranas is one and the same Krishna who spoke the Bhagavad-Gita and is so marvelously glorified in the Mahabharata.

Maybe, maybe not. ;)

I don't see how that constitutes a proof? Can you explain this further?

Also according to the Aihole inscription of Pulakesin II, the Battle of Kuruksetra took place in 3102 B.C. with Lord Krishna reciting the Bhagavad-Gita before its commencement.

The Aihole inscription was written around 600AD. It may very well claim all manor of things. But what is that to us?

The Book of Mormon, for example, claims that Jesus landed on American soil and hung out with the Native Americans. But that most likely didn't happen EVEN THOUGH it's written in a sacred text. What do you make of that?

There is absolutely no point in discussing who came first. The point is whatever you believe in, have you made any difference in this life ? What Jesus or Krishna would do ?

irrespective of religions..god is unique, every one feels that their religion is first and basement of all other religions,
and it is also the magic of god, who knows? who is first or who is next, can any one explain what we felt when we were in our mother's womb? atleast explain where we will go and what we r going to do after death..answer less questions,...every religion instructed us how to live with policies, how to help others, how to maintain our health and all...there is nothing to be discussed rather than finding our own way...thank you
