Controller of the Controllers


Everyone of us nourishes a desire to control something. From a small ant to the huge elephant, from a pauper on the street to the President of a state, everyone thinks that “I am the controller”. An ant thinks, “I am the controller of the little grain of sugar”, an elephant thinks “I am the controller of the entire trees of the forest”, a pauper thinks, “I am the controller of my begging bowl” and a President thinks, “I am the controller of the entire nation”.  It’s true that we have tiny little control over certain things for a certain period of time. But those controls are also taken away by the mighty time. Where is now Alexander the Great, Napolean, Hitler, Ravana, or Auranzeb? 

Revealed scriptures explain that all the living entities are controllers of certain things but God, Krishna, is the controller of all the controllers. He is the supreme controller. Sri Brahma – samhita says,

isvarah paramah krishna

sac-cid-änanda-vigrahah

anädir ädir govindah

sarva-kärana-karanam

Translation: Krishna who is known as Govinda is the Supreme Godhead. He has an eternal blissful spiritual body. He is the origin of all. He has no other origin and He is the prime cause of all causes: - Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura
