Arjuna(a devotee of God) could get the vision of Shiva by penance but he was born as a hunter in the next birth for neglecting the contemporary human incarnation. Some recognize the concept of human incarnation and worship a particular past human incarnation only due to ego and jealousy against the contemporary human form of God. Such rigid people do not recognize any other past human incarnation also due to their ignorance about the common God existing in all human incarnations. The devotee of Krishna says that Krishna alone is God because Krishna said that one should surrender to Him only (Mamaekam sharanam". Gita).

But Jesus told that one can reach God only through Him and hence the Christian is particular of Jesus only. Now both quarrel with each other and sometimes it is resulting in violence and disturbance of world peace. Laden killed Christians and Hindus in America and root concept is this religious fanaticism only. Here, you should take that Krishna and Jesus were referring to the contemporary human incarnations only and not to the individual souls, which are charged by God. Remember, Krishna and Jesus were giving these statements to the people who were before their eyes in their times and not to the present generation. If you realize this single point the confusion is removed.

This sounds very similar to Baha'i beliefs, with each religion being for a certain age of humanity and applicable to only that era, so that the next age of humanity will be prepared for the next religious teachings.

Contemporary Human Incarnation

Lord Datta means God given to the world in human form for the upliftment of humanity and hence, He is the highest as far as humanity is concerned from the point of convenience in worship and experiencing Lord. This is also the direct worship of God. He is the only means of reaching/serving/pleasing the Lord. Lord Krishna said it through "Vasudevah Sarvamiti"" in the Gita and Lord Jesus stressed the same when He told "I am the only way". Such, Lord in human form is called the human incarnation. The "I" in the above statement of Jesus refers to the human incarnation of Lord only, who comes in every generation otherwise, He becomes partial for a generation of people, place and time. The scriptures of both Christianity & Hinduism i.e., Bible and Gita support the human incarnation concept through the statements "God-in-flesh and Manushim Tanumaasritam"" respectively.

Even in Islam also, Mohammed is treated as a Prophet, which definitely means, He is above normal human beings because all the human beings are not treated as Prophets. The worship of such contemporary human incarnation/Prophet gives the highest fruit as in the case of Hanuman (attained the post of future creator), who worshipped Lord Rama and Gopikas (attained Goloka), who worshipped Lord Krishna. Likewise, the disciples of Jesus, Mohammed Prophet, Buddha, Shankara, Mahavir, Rama Krishna Paramahamsa and Shirdi Sai worshipped the respective human incarnation only as Lord. Worship means not mere words and feelings, but by participating in His mission through service, which consists of donating money & physical service. His mission is only to spread the divine knowledge and devotion in this world and to uplift everybody.

Service means sacrifice of work and sacrifice of fruit of work. Service is the proof of the real love. The mother serves her child by sacrifice of work like giving bath, dressing etc., for years together continuously. The father serves the child by sacrifice of fruit of his entire hard work. It is a clear practical point that the proof of the real love is only service. If you serve your family, you love your family. If you serve the entire world, you love the creation. If you serve the God, you love the God and this is only called devotion.
