Krishna is the most beloved God of many. Krishna’s whole life was a set of lessons through his deeds. Krishna’s mischief while he stayed at Dwarka, Wisdom in the war of Kurukshetra and his life at Dwarka after the battle teaches us so many things about humanity and mankind and way of life.
Here’s a small glimpse his life at these various places:
Krishna’s childhood was extremely playful and mischievous. He used to eat all the butter, cause trouble to Gopis, play the flute. All these were Krishna’s Leelas which is believed to spread joy and happiness in the otherwise regular life of people.
In his young years, Krishna is reported to have killed demons Trinavarta and Putana. He is also said to have lifted a nearby hill – Govardhana to protect the villagers against the wrath of Indra.
His life at Vrindavan is an example of simple and mesmerizing life. How one can perform his duties rather playfully while enjoying.
When Krishna went to Mathura, he killed Kansa- his evil uncle. Thus showing that good always triumphs evil. At Mathura, he met the Pandava Prince Arjuna. Sri Krishna became a counsel and friend to Arjuna. He accompanied Arjuna in the Battlefield of Kurukshetra and there he gave the greatest teaching to the mankind in the form of Bhagwad Gita.
After the war, Krishna settled in Dwarka. Legends say that Sri Krishna was killed when an arrow hit his ankle which was hot by a hunter who mistook Sri Krishna for a deer. His ankle was supposedly the weakest part of his body. He accepted death calmly, knowing his time on earth and come to an end.
This gave us a great teaching that we are all mortals and that what is destined is going to happen and we have to be graceful in accepting it.
