Lord Krishna was born in the Dwapar Yuga but his sayings and quotes are relevant even today in the 21st century. He was the eighth child of Devaki and Vasudeva. Kansa who was Devaki’s brother imprisoned Devaki and Vasudeva because he was cautioned by a celestial voice that the eighth child of his sister Devaki will kill him.
Mythology states that each of the Gods approached the prison and proposed Vasudeva to take Lord Krishna into Dwaraka and leave him with Yashoda. In return, get the girl born to Yashoda. Vasudeva after reaching Gokul passed his son to Nandgopa and brought back their daughter. Lord Krishna’s birth date is celebrated as Janmasthami every year in India.
Lord Krishna’s Childhood
Lord Krishna’s childhood was filled with unique stories of the way he had to sneak butter from everybody’s homes, the way he killed all of the demons delivered from Uncle Kansa to kill him. Krishna’s affiliation with Radha throughout his youth is really that of a celestial couple that’s quite much admired in our civilization. Radha has been the incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi.
The End Of Kansa
Krishna became the king afterwards killing his Uncle Kansa. Krishna’s main part was through the battle of Kurukshetra. Krishna was around the side of the Pandavas. Krishna always listened like a friend, philosopher and guide to Arjuna in the battle. Arjuna was backing because he needed to kill his very own brothers and struggle against his or her teachers. At the stage, Lord Krishna gave him the lesson of Bhakti Yoga so to detach oneself in your anticipation of outcomes.
