A Living Theology of Krishna Bhakti

This chapter explores Prabhupada's mahāvākya, which is mainly concerned with Krishna. It compares the ways Prabhupada and his predecessors used the Sanskritic equivalents of the mahāvākya, and then studies Prabhupada's main ontological assumption that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Finally, this chapter also considers several transformative practices of Prabhupada's living theology and even compares the audiences of Prabhupada from Chaitanya. The concepts of theological fidelity and Sambandha are also discussed.

Keywords:   mahāvākya, Krishna, Sanskritic equivalents, ontological assumption, transformative practices, living theology, Chaitanya, audiences, theological fidelity, Sambandha
