I'm wondering who is Krishna? I thought that the monotheism of Hinduism regarded Brahman as the absolute-- and that God is pretty much embodied in the philosophy of OM. I believe all the figure heads, dieties, are simply a matter of breaking down (the incomprehensible) into forms that could be identified with--- similar to how Jungian psychology breaks down the human into archetypes. Also, there are many stories in Hinduism-- which serve sort of like bedtime stories for children. So is Krishna meant as a figment of Brahman of am I off?
