The secret of Krishna’s birth He wants us to know
By Vivek Sharma


O Krishna! Were You really born in the sense that we understand? The question is pertinent as we celebrate the joys of your birth as if you are born just on the day, right now, right here!
What is Your take on Your birth, please reveal!
जन्म कर्म च में दिव्यमेवं यो वेत्ति तत्त्वतः।
त्यक्त्वा देहं पुनर्जन्म नैति मामेति सो अर्जुन।। (,)
Krishna says—My birth and works are supernatural, the one who knows it in reality reaches Me after leaving behind his body. He never takes birth!
What does it mean? Why isn’t a person who knows the secret of Your birth not reborn? There must be something in the secret. What is that? Please reveal!
अजोिप सन्नव्यायात्मा भूतानामीश्वरोपि सन् ।
प्रकृतिं स्वामधिष्ठाय सम्भवामि आत्ममयया ।। (४,६)
Though I am unborn, unperishable and the lord of all Creation, I manifest Myself by bringing under My control Nature (its laws)…
Oh! That means You are not born in the sense we think You do. But, You manifest Yourself by bringing Nature under Your control. Well, that means tweaking the laws of Nature, You manifest Yourself when You think it is time. What is hidden can manifest and what is manifest cannot be created. This is the secret principle hidden in your statement.  सम्भवामि आत्ममायया, I manifest through My Energy. ‘My Energy’ is more Powerful than Nature, which is nothing but the laws of Energy Herself . By using higher Energy, I tweak the Natural principle of birth and death and manifest Myself, is the meaning of it all.
So, what do we celebrate every year? It is the supernatural phenomenon, the moment when Krishna manifested Himself.  This phenomenon repeats automatically when time meets two basic coordinates —धर्मस्य ग्लानिअधर्मस्य अभ्युत्थानम्   When righteousness is made to shrink and unrighteousness expands. This is the right time when He manifests Himself in the degree of Energy required by the time to save the moral practitioners, remove the immoral ones as much as to re-institutionalise the cosmic principles—-so that generations could educate themselves in it and form a healthy social order.
We celebrate today the phenomenon wherein Intelligent Energy changed Her static laws to protect the humanity and manifested Herself as Krishna. It doesn’t mean that Krishna wasn’t born! He was born like the sun rises in the east! Does the sun rise in the east?  Does it ever set? Is the sun just the fiery ball visible or the light and heat we experience even without looking at it? The same way when Krishna, the phenomenon, manifests as the principle, but we only see the person  (the fiery ball). Let’s know today that Krishna manifests as a principle and appears to be born like a person. The same way the sun rises in the east! We shouldn’t think that the sun doesn’t exist at night. It does, but our relative position and time coordinates don’t make us see it! That is maya!
