Lord Krishna is a friend, philosopher, a guide and a god to everyone. The great sage Narayana took the avatar as Lord Krishna along with the great sage Nara who took the avatar as Arjuna.
Both of them meditated deeply in the Naimisharanya forest for several thousands of years and then took the avatar as Lord Krishna and the Great Warrior Arjuna in Dwapar Yuga. Lord Krishna even as a child, has done many miracles and protected the Yadav community. His divine beauty cannot be described in full. The way he steals the butter and cheese from the Yadavas which was described in Srimad Bhagavatha was very much sensational and heart filling with full of joy.
Lord Krishna cannot be known fully. Only by reading his divine text Bhagavatham and by praying him continuously, we could know him to some extent. He is a slave to our Pure Bhakti. Only by keeping constant Bhakti on him, we can fulfill our needs and desires. We should totally surrender on to the LOTUS FEET of Lord Krishna.
Lord Krishna’s popular temples are situated at Dwaraka, Orrisa, Guruvayur and in Udipi. Even in western countries also, Lord Krishna’s temple is there. He has given the way of leading a sin-free life in BHAGAVAD GITA which is an important scripture for the Hindus. Even though he is a Bhagawan, he respected elders and sought their blessings also.
He has shown mercy for the demons also, those who tried to kill him and offered MOKSHA to them. He leads a complete life and ruled his kingdom very efficiently and effectively. He saved his friends from the clutches of Demons by killing them.
Usually, he is surrounded by GOPIKAS, who was his true devotees and will always see him as a God. He acted as a guide to the Pandavas during the time of their distress and saved Draupathi from Duchadana. Though he was a relative and a friend of Pandavas, he has not changed their fate, since they have to suffer for their sins, but supported them and finally helped them towards conquering their kingdom.
Whoever calls the name KRISHNA KRISHNA and ask for his help, he will immediately present there and readily help them. The only thing he expects from us is pure bhakti on him. He respected his childhood friend Sudhama and removed his poverty. He was humble and noble to everyone. He respected all the people and shown kindness to everyone.
A lot of songs are there for Lord Krishna. Songs in all languages are available. Bhagavatham and Bhagavat Gita are the two main Hindu epics. Sree Krishna Jayanthi is celebrated widely all over India and also in Western countries by the Indians. Various food items like seedai, murukku and thattai will be prepared using pure cow’s butter and will be presented in front of Lord Krishna’s Idol. Small children will be decorated as Krishna and will be participating in their school function.
Generally, if a child looks beautiful, we will say a word as you are good looking like ‘Bala Krishna’! Similar to Rama Mantra, chanting Lord Krishna’s Mantra repeatedly for several lakhs of times will make us enter into HEAVEN.
JAI KRISHNA, JAI GOPALA, JAI GOVINDA NAMO NAMAHA
