Is the Speaker of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita Supreme God?

 Is Speaker of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita Superior?

Question: It is stated in Gita Adhyay 15 Shlok 18 that I am famous in Lok, in Ved by the name Purushottam. This proves that God, the giver of the knowledge of Gita, only is the Almighty and the entire Gita Adhyay 12 is describing the glory of the giver of the knowledge of Gita only. 

Answer: In Bhagavad Gita, God, the giver of the knowledge of Gita, is describing his sadhna (way of worship) and capability as well as is stating the glory of that Supreme God and is also indicating towards a Tatvdarshi Saint for the sadhna of that Supreme God. The entire Gita Adhyay 12 is filled with the glory of Brahm (Kshar Purush / Kaal) and Gita Adhyay 13 is filled with the glory of that Supreme God i.e. Aadi Purush Parmeshwar. In Gita Adhyay 15 Shlok 1 to 4 and 16 and 17,

In Shlok 16, it is said that there are two Gods in the Lok made up of the element of Earth (the twenty-one brahmands of Brahm and the seven sankh brahmands of ParBrahm because of being formed of the element of earth, are also called as one lok). One is Kshar Purush i.e. Brahm. Second is Akshar Purush i.e. ParBrahm. The material bodies of all the living beings under these two Gods and of these two Gods are perishable and the soul is said to be imperishable. 

In Shlok 17, it is said that in reality, Purushottam i.e. the Almighty Supreme God is someone else other than these two, who is called God ; who entering into the three loks, sustains and protects everyone. He is actually called the Eternal Supreme God. 

In Adhyay 15 only in Shlok 18, the giver of the knowledge of Gita (Kshar Purush / Brahm), describing his state, is saying that I am called Purushottam on the basis of Lokved (folklore), because I am superior to all the living beings who are under me in my twentyone brahmands, whether they are perishable in material bodies or are imperishable in soul form. Therefore on the basis of lokved (folklore), I am famous as Purushottam. In reality, Purushottam is some other Supreme God who is mentioned in Gita Adhyay 15 Shlok 17.

Who is Supreme God? Shri Krishna, Lord Vishnu or Lord Shiva.

Satlok Ashram

Supreme God is KavirDev the creator of entire universes and no one else. All holy scriptures provide evidence.

Anupriya Pathak

Shri Krishna showed his huge form to Arjun in Mahabharata Warfield. He only is all-capable God.

Satlok Ashram

The gigantic form shown during Mahabharat was not of Shri Krishna but it was Brahm Kaal the owner of 21 universes who tells in Gita Chapter 15:18 that he is called Purushottam according to Lokved but indicates in Gita 18:62 that Supreme God is some other. He is the provider of salvation.

Shivani Verma

Lord Krishna the narrator of Gita's knowledge is 'Purushottam' as is evidenced in Gita Chapter 15:18. Hence, he is Supreme God

Satlok Ashram

First, not Lord Krishna but Brahm Kaal is the knowledge giver of Gita. He is superior to all beings only in his 21 universes not in entirety. According to folklore he is considered superior but in reality supreme God is some other about whom he tells in Gita 15:1-4, 16,17 and 18:62.
