The Bhagavad Gita and the Gospel accounts of the New Testament tell a similar story of God’s outreach to humanity through a human incarnation. Krishna, a central figure in the Gita, is an incarnation of the god Vishnu, who is concerned with the salvation of humanity. Similarly, Jesus Christ is the incarnation of the creator God of the Old Testament; this God is likewise concerned with the salvation of humanity. Written from a Catholic theological perspective, “Krishna, Christ, and the Fullness of Life” examines the similarities between these salvation accounts and their implications for cross-cultural studies of literature—specifically literature about divinity.
