Krishna - the source of all "isms"

In theology, there are so many "isms" such as;

  1. Atheism - no belief in an Almighty God
  2. Theism - belief in an Almighty God
  3. Apatheism - lack of any interest in a single Almighty God
  4. Agnosticism - Belief in a higher power but without any definite knowledge about it
  5. Monotheism - belief in a single Almighty God
  6. Polytheism - belief in many gods
  7. Transpolytheism - belief that there is a transcendent undifferentiated spiritual state beyond worship of different god
  8. Naturalism - belief that everything can be explained by the physical laws of nature
  9. Deism - belief in the existence of a God on the evidence of reason and nature only, with rejection of supernatural revelation
  10. Henotheism - belief in and worship of a single God while accepting the existence or possible existence of other deities that may also be worshiped
  11. Pantheism - belief that God and nature are identical. Do not believe in a distinct personal God.
  12. Panentheism - belief that God contains the universe while also transcending beyond it infinitely
From the Bhagavad Gita, we can understand that Krishna is the supreme singular transcendent Being in charge of creation and subsidiary gods. One can understand the existence of God simply by studying His material nature. Krishna is identical with material nature in the form of His virat rupa and at the same time permeates and transcends His creation simultaneously personally and impersonally. 

Indeed all of these "isms" can be explained in Krishna.

Hare Krishna
