"Sri Krishna is not merely a historical man who came and went, like others, but the Eternal Purusha who dwells even now and shall live in the everlasting future, in the core of all manifestation. It is the Symbol of the Absolute descended into relativity that we call Krishna, the ever-beloved protector of all that breathe and air."
"So Sri Krishna is called an Avatara, a descent of God in the world, of the Whole in the parts, of the Absolute in the relative. An Avatara is different from a Rishi or a Jivanmukta who represents an ascent of man to God, whereas the Avatara is a descent of God to man, consciously and deliberately. Sri Krishna lived the universal life, laughed a universal laughter, and walked on earth as the moving Spirit of the universe. To worship Him is to be in the Presence of God; to know Him is to realise the Self."
"What a grand life! The householder and the Sannyasin, the great enjoyer and the great renouncer, the child and the sagacious, the sportive and the contemplative, the human and the Divine, melt together in the menstruum of Sri Krishna and exist as One! Truly, God is All, and to God all are one. "He is woman and He is man; He is boy and He is girl; He is the old one tottering with a stick; He exists pervading all things" (Svetasvatara Upanishad, IV-3).

Tattva" and Philosophy of Symbols by Sri Swami Sivananda
Lord Siva is the pure, changeless, attributeless, all-pervading
transcendental consciousness. He is the inactive (Nishkriya) Purusha.
Prakriti is dancing on His breast and performing the creative,
preservative and destructive processes."..... Swami Sivananda
“O man, in whatever state the Lord has placed you, so far as your outer, earthly, secular life is concerned, be content. Be where God has placed you, and be full of inner serenity, be full of inner joy. Never mind what your mind may say. Never mind what people may say. For you know that all comes due to the supreme will of the Almighty, the Universal Being; everything is in His hands. He brings about all things. Knowing this be at rest, be serene, be peaceful.
“In all conditions, at all times, amidst all experiences, events and occurrences, in all tests, trials and tribulations, be serene; rejoice in the Lord, knowing that you are safe in His hands. For He, the infinite goodness, infinite love, infinite compassion, infinite justice, infinite wisdom, can never do to you anything that is wrong, harmful or inimical to your highest welfare.
“Thus, having firm faith, firm knowledge, being set and convinced, and thus being established in this conviction, be serene in whatever way He has placed you. Be pleased to be there and rejoice. Chant: ‘Sita Ram, Sita Ram, Sita Ram.’ - Swami Chidananda << More>>
