Krishna explains reality more thoroughly than anyone else we’ve ever heard. Don’t just take our word for it, though; judge for yourself:

Krishna explains reality more thoroughly than anyone else we’ve ever heard. Don’t just take our word for it, though; judge for yourself:

Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 7.13

TRANSLATION

Deluded by the three modes [goodness, passion and ignorance], the whole world does not know Me, who am above the modes and inexhaustible.

PURPORT (excerpt):

The whole world is enchanted by three modes of material nature. Those who are bewildered by these three modes cannot understand that transcendental to this material nature is the Supreme Lord, Krishna.

Every living entity under the influence of material nature has a particular type of body and a particular type of psychological and biological activities accordingly. There are four classes of men functioning in the three material modes of nature. Those who are purely in the mode of goodness are called brahmanas. Those who are purely in the mode of passion are called kshatriyas. Those who are in the modes of both passion and ignorance are called vaisyas. Those who are completely in ignorance are called sudras. And those who are less than that are animals or animal life.
