Sri Krishna - The Glory of Purushottam and Yogeshwara

The personality of Lord Krishna and his teachings have inspired humanity for centuries and will continue to do so. His ideals of life and teachings of yoga continue to inspire us even today to follow the right path and lead our lives towards excellence and peace.


The word Purushottam means "the best of men" (purushon mein sarvottam). This title is given to Lord Vishnu and his incarnation Sri Krishna. In the Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna calls himself Purushottam, the best and the greatest of all men. This title is also used for Lord Rama, who is believed to be the seventh incarnation of Vishnu.

Purushottam has a deep meaning. It not only shows the superiority of a person's qualities, but it also highlights the soul of the person and his spiritual excellence. Both Lord Krishna and Rama have set ideals for humanity by following the path of dharma, truth and justice in their lives. Their teachings and ideals play an important role in guiding society in the right direction even today.


Yogeshwara means "master of yoga". This title is also given to Sri Krishna, who has described the various forms and importance of yoga in the Bhagavad Gita. As Yogeshwara, Shri Krishna explained to Arjuna the glory of Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, and Gyan Yoga.

Yoga means "to join" or "to unite" and Yogeshwara is one who explains the relationship between the soul and the divine through yoga. Shri Krishna presented yoga not just as a physical exercise but as a path to the advancement of the soul and peace of mind. He explained how one can make his life great and meaningful by following various paths of yoga.

Religious and Spiritual Significance

Both the titles Purushottam and Yogeshwara reflect the unique personality of Lord Krishna and his unparalleled teachings. The principles of life and the teachings of yoga given by him were not only important in ancient times but are still relevant in modern society today.

Lord Krishna taught through his life how a person should perform his duties and how purification of the soul and union with the divine can be achieved through yoga. His teachings are still important today not only from the religious point of view but also as an art of living.
