The Science of Self Realization
Chapter Four
Understanding Krishna and Christ
The Srimad-Bhägavatam states that any bona fide preacher of God consciousness must have the qualities of titiksä (tolerance) and karunä (compassion). In the character of Lord Jesus Christ we find both these qualities. He was so tolerant that even while he was being crucified, he didn’t condemn anyone. And he was so compassionate that he prayed to God to forgive the very persons who were trying to kill him. (Of course, they could not actually kill him. But they were thinking that he could be killed, so they were committing a great offense.) As Christ was being crucified he prayed, “Father, forgive them. They know not what they are doing.”
