I did not read this entire thread, I read only Malolan's post. Here I
post what I read in devii bhagavatam - Book 4.
kRShNa is a amsha avatara of Lord ViShNu. It goes like this. arjuNa
and kRShNa are respectively avatara-s of sages nara and nArAyaNa. Both
nara and nArAyaNa are amshaavatara-s of Lord shriiman naaraayaNa. These
sages are sons of RShi dharma, who is in turn son of brahma. Take it
or leave it.
At personal level, I do not care for these specifics though. I worship
all devata-s as manifestation of shiva-dampati and who is
sat-chit-Ananda. Even Allah is non different from shivAbhyaam with the
symbol crescent moon which is their unique ornanament (chuuDaalankRta
sashi kalaabhyaam. That is my belief. To all the same chant; "namaH
kaadhaalagi kasindhu kaNNiir malgi
Odhuvaar thamai nanneRikkuyppathu
vedam naanginum maypporuLaavathu
naathan naamam namashivAyavE.
"To those who chant the name of our Lord, "namaH shivAya" which is the
essence of four veda-s, with deep love, melting in devotion and tears
rolling down one's cheek; it will lead them to the right path"
