19. God enters a medium to preach spiritual knowledge

ज्ञानोपदेशात् मानुषोपाधि गीयते।१९।
jñānopadeśāt mānuṣopādhi gīyate|19|

The purpose of the mediated God [1] is preaching spiritual knowledge to human beings. Hence, the medium is that of a human being and this is told in the Gita.


The main purpose of the entry of God into a medium is to preach spiritual knowledge to human beings and hence, the medium must be a living being and especially, it must be a human being. This is clearly told in the Gita that God enters the human being (Maanusheem tanumaashritam).

[1] Incarnation of God; God in the medium of a human body.
