Brahma Is Not The Original Creator. The Original Creator Is Krishna Now the process is, just like we approach a teacher, the spiritual master, to get knowledge. So there was no visible living creature before Brahma. So how he got knowledge? The answer is "tene brahma hṛdā ya ādi-kavaye" 'Ādi-kavaye'. The first created living being, Brahma, was educated from within the heart. That means Kṛṣṇa, Vāsudeva, or the Supreme Lord, is situated in everyone's heart. He is situated in Brahma's heart also. He is situated in your heart, my heart. And 'hṛdā' this very word is used. 'Hṛdā' means heart. So He can educate anyone from within the heart. But why we are not aware of Him? Theoretically we know, but practically in our conditioned state we cannot understand how He is directing us. But He's directing. That's a fact. Brahma is not ordinary living being, therefore he could take direction from the Supreme Lord within the heart. We can also take when we are qualified, exactly like Brahma. Brahma appeared to serve the Lord. To fulfill the desire of the Lord. Just like we engage one carpenter, and I ask him to make a cabinet for me. I give him the ingredients, tools, or wages, and he creates a cabinet. Similarly, God created the ingredients, and the manufacturer also, and Brahma created this universe. But he's not the original creator. The original creator is Kṛṣṇa. As such, the original proprietor is also Kṛṣṇa because He has created the ingredients. Actually when we work in practical field, the ingredients we cannot create. Suppose we construct a very high skyscraper building, but the ingredients, namely the earth, stone, wood, iron, which are the ingredients of the house, that we cannot create. That is created by God. We simply transform. We take earth, dirt from the earth and mix it with water. The water is created by God. The earth is created by God. Then we mix it and make a lump, like brick, and put it in the fire. The fire is also created by God. In this way, if we study scrutinizingly, the ingredients and the materials which we are handling, they are not our creation. They are creation of God. We simply handle them. And because we handle them it does not become our property. This is sense. Suppose I am worker, I'm handling some other things, materials, and preparing something, that does not mean when the thing is manufactured, complete, it become my property. No. How it can be? Therefore the philosophy is that everything belongs to Kṛṣṇa, God. I also belong to Him. And whatever I do, manufacture, that also belongs to Him. This sense to understand that everything belongs to God. I also belong to God. My intelligence belongs to God. The ingredients or physical elements with which we work, that also belongs to God. Then where is the scope for my claiming that I am proprietor? This is called illusion. So this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is meant for reviving the original consciousness of the human society, because in the cats and dogs or animals, such consciousness cannot be invoked. They are so dull and in the lower stage of consciousness, it is not possible for them to understand...
