There are many parallels in the philosophies of Lord Krishna as mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita and Jesus Christ in the Bible. This post highlights some of the parallels below
Christ: Judge not, lest ye be judged. Condemn not, lest ye be condemned.
Lord Krishna: Enlightened men are those who see the same in a Brahmana with learning, a cow, an elephant or a dog. In other words the yogi does not form opinions or judgments about others. A true yogi treats all persons with the same footing.
Christ: Love your enemy. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who treat you with disdain.
Lord Krishna: A true yogi is unaffected by praise or criticism. By always dwelling in the Atman he is unruffled by hatred, contempt or anger. According to the Gita, a true yogi is a person who is expansive in his heart. He has risen above the joy that comes from praise or the hurt that comes from bitter criticism
Christ: Thekingdom ofGod cometh not with observation. For behold, the kingdom of the God is within you.
Lord Krishna: Above the senses, the mind, the intellect is the Atman which is within you. In the Upanishad’s this is also mentioned as “Tat tvam asi”, “Thou art that”. The Atman is inside you and we become aware of it through self-inquiry.
Christ: You cannot serve God and Mammon at the same. Here Mammon refers to the desire for wealth.
Lord Krishna: Perform niskama-karma or desireless action. Offer all the fruits of your action to God. Rise above desires and passion. Lord Krishna in the Gita enjoins us to rise above the rajasic nature of passion to a sattvic nature of principled living.
Though the words were different Lord Krishna and Jesus Christ were saying the same thing.
