Many researchers and facts establish that there indeed is scientific, spiritual and archaeological evidence to prove the existence of Lord Krishna.
An epic war, the Mahabharata, was fought between the good and the evil, between the Pandavas and the Kauravas and in the modern age, there is still a battle being fought to extract the truth from the fiction. Yes, we are talking about the living war between the truth and the myth; the God and his myth or to say, a war to establish the true identity of God and discard the modern theory of scientists.
A great example of this continued argument finds the base in existence of Lord Krishna. Many researchers and facts establish that there indeed is scientific, spiritual and archaeological evidence to prove the existence of Lord Krishna.
Bhagavad Gita 9.11 -12: “When I appear in My human-like form ( Sri Krishna), foolish people with mundane intelligence disrespect Me, because they cannot recognize Me as the Supreme God. All their hopes are in vain. These deluded Fools will be reborn again and again as Atheists and Asuras.
The Bhagavad Gita Banyan tree in Jyotisar, the tree which is said to have witnessed the treasured conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, where the Bhagavad Gita episode took place exists till date. It is still worshiped today. Researchers further say that it is not possible for carbon dating to estimate the right age of the tree but the fact that its existence during the Mahabharata finds a mention in the documentaries cannot be only a coincidence. Even worshipping Ganga cannot be carbon dated for that matter.
Other carbon dated items at the sites of Kurukshetra indicate that they are far older than Indus Valley Civilization. Dr. Euan Mackie, an eminent archaeologist and a prominent name in the field of Archaeoastronomy had found proof at the site to establish the Existence of Lord Krishna. Legend has it that Nalakuvara and Manigriva, the two great devotees of Lord Siva were punished by Narada Muni for indulging blindly in the material wealth and losing human decency. The punishment converted the two into dull and unconscious like trees. During the course of their punishment, they came face to face with Lord Krishna. They were then, twin Arjun trees in the courtyard of Yasuda and Krishna. This episode took place in Yamala Arjuna at Mohenjo Daro in 2200 BC. Dr. Euan Mackie discovered a clay tablet belonging to this episode and establishing the fact that there was indeed a culture of Krishna worship.
Historical records show that the ancient city of Dwarka was first established after 36 years of the epic war. By now we know that the damage and destruction by the at the site, led to Dwarka being submerged multiple time (6 times) and today’s Dwarka is the 7th city construction.
Srimad Bhagavatam, one of the oldest Vedic scriptures mention about the life history of Krishna taking us into the past, some billions of years ago. These are authorized scriptures and the most ancient texts accessible today. The authenticity of the Vedic scriptures is beyond any debate as till date, many moderns scientists, cosmologists, physicists and medical experts refer to it to conclude research and experiments. A leading physicist Albert Einstein confirmed referring to Vedic texts and Bhagavad Gita for important insights.
The Srimad Bhagavatam also tells about the address of Krishna as the one who lived on the pinnacle lotus shaped planet known as Goloka Vrindavan in the spiritual universe called Vaikuntha.
Deep research in the submerged city of Dwarka also reveals the city’s connection with Mahabharata. Many seals corroborating evidence of ancient text, the Harivamsa, have been found. It is said that these seals were used as identity proof in the Krishna land. A book titled ‘Search for the Historical Krishna’ by N.S. Rajaram, a mathematician, and former NASA scientist confirms discovery on seals found onshore. Many of these Harappan seals have full names of people and places like Paila (Ved Vyasa’s pupil), Akrura (Krishna’s friend), Vrishni (Krishna’s clan), Yadu (Krishna’s ancestor), Sritirtha (old name for Dwaraka) taking us back to 5000 years ago.
Dr. Narhari Achar, professor of physics at the University of Memphis, Tennessee, uses astronomy to allocate a date to the epic war of Mahabharata. His astronomical confirmation based on the planetarium software dates Mahabharata to 3067 BC and Lord Krishna’s birth to 3112 BC. He conducted his research in 2004-05. Dr. Manish Pandit, a nuclear medicine physician in the UK, seconds the opinion of Dr. Achar.
