Dear Guru Maharaja,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to you and Srila Prabhupada.
I believe the Krishna Conscious movement is monotheism. I’ve heard pantheism mentioned before in the S.B. Can you please tell me what pantheism is? Can you also give me an example of pantheism? Thank you.
Dear Bhakta Richard,
Receive my blessings. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I’ll answer all your emails. You have to be patient because my service take from me a lot of time and energies.
The word pantheism means everything is God (from the greek pan = all, theism = God).
A pantheist believes that the creation is permeated by God or that the whole of creation is God.
According to Vedic knowledge, the creation is the product of Krishna’s energy but He never dissolves Himself into the creation. He remains the same although innumerable forms of creation comes from Him.
The first verse of the Sri Isopanisad explanin this principle. Please read it.
