Lord Krishna is one God you can call your friend. Someone you can take liberties and call a prankster, cult-figure, the model lover, divine hero or Supreme Being at the same time. An all-in-one God, he transforms himself as a leader, hero, protector, philosopher, teacher and friend.
In a world where human relationships are getting complicated, joint families breaking up; nuclear families are falling apart, Lord Krishna appears to be the God most in demand.
No wonder every mother in India wants to be Devki or Yashoda and nurse a child like Krishna.
Lord Krishna is a happy-go-lucky God whose colorful experiences in life teach us what to do at difficult crossroads of life. Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, was born in ‘Dwapur Yug’ as the eighth child of Devki and Vasudev. He was brought up by Mata Yashoda and Baba Nand.
His 108 names include Mohan enchanter of women, Gopinath – lord of the gopis, Shyama sundara – meaning dark & beautiful, Govinda—finder of cows and Gopala the protector of cows.
He was born in prison but promises to liberation from the circle of life and death. Indeed, it’s very difficult to find any other Krishna — the Lord of all Lords!!
Below is the sketch I made of him. Always gives a smile on everyone’s face. 🙂
