in the lecture on krishna, the god of love, sex and yoga at 27:33 you say that krishna is the holy trinity but krishna is actually an avatar of vishnu who is himself a part of the trinity, besides vishnu we have brahma and shiva, so my question is that how can vishnu be all the three, what about shiva and brahma?

Have you ever read The Bhagavad Gita?

Krishna said...

There is nothing whatsoever higher than Me, O Arjuna! All this is strung on Me as
clusters of gems on a string...

I am the father (Brahma) of this world, the mother, the dispenser of the fruits of actions, and the
grandfather; the (one) thing to be known, the purifier, the sacred monosyllable (Om), and also the
Rig-, the Sama- and Yajur Vedas...

I am the goal, the support, the Lord, the witness, the abode, the shelter, the friend, the
origin, the dissolution, the foundation, the treasure-house and the imperishable seed.

(As the sun) I give heat; I withhold and send forth the rain; I am immortality and also
death, existence and non-existence, O Arjuna!

...in every way I am the source of all the gods and the great sages.

I am the Self, O Gudakesha, seated in the hearts of all beings! I am the beginning, the
middle and also the end of all beings.

Among the Adityas, I am Vishnu; among the luminaries, the radiant sun...


Having thus spoken, O king, the great Lord of Yoga, Hari (Krishna), showed to Arjuna
His supreme form as the Lord!

With numerous mouths and eyes, with numerous wonderful sights, with numerous
divine ornaments, with numerous divine weapons uplifted (such a form He showed).

Wearing divine garlands and apparel, anointed with divine unguents, the all-wonderful,
resplendent (Being), endless, with faces on all sides,

If the splendour of a thousand suns were to blaze out at once (simultaneously) in the sky,
that would be the splendour of that mighty Being (great soul).

There, in the body of the God of gods, Arjuna then saw the whole universe resting in the
one, with its many groups...

14. Then, Arjuna, filled with wonder and with hair standing on end, bowed down his head to
the Lord and spoke with joined palms.

I behold all the gods, O God, in Thy body, and hosts of various classes of beings;
Brahma, the Lord, seated on the lotus, all the sages and the celestial serpents!

I see Thee of boundless form on every side, with many arms, stomachs, mouths and
eyes; neither the end nor the middle nor also the beginning do I see, O Lord of the universe, O
Cosmic Form!

I see Thee with the diadem, the club and the discus, a mass of radiance shining
everywhere, very hard to look at, blazing all round like burning fire and the sun, and immeasurable.

Thou art the Imperishable, the Supreme Being, worthy of being known; Thou art the
great treasure-house of this universe; Thou art the imperishable protector of the eternal Dharma;
Thou art the ancient Person, I deem.


In other words:

"Brahma, Vishnu and Siva are the three aspects of God. Brahma is the creative aspect; Vishnu is the preservative aspect; and Siva is the destructive aspect. There is no polytheism in Hinduism. Siva, Vishnu, Brahma, Sakti are different aspects of the one Lord." - Swami Sivananda

"Do not worry; cultivate the habit of being happy." - Samael Aun Weor
