Find Lord Krishna in you - HT inner voice

Lord Krishna is a God of many splendours. Varied and various are the aspects of his divinity.

He is the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He is the Krishna of the Mahabharata, a great strategist, pacifist and counsellor. He is the Krishna of Kurukshetra, the great teacher, who manifested his Universal Form to his disciple Arjuna. He is the Krishna of Vrindavan, a god of love, of "madhur bhakti," in amorous dalliance with the Gopis (cowherdesses).
He is ragi as also viragi.

The story of Krishna's birth, as told in the Mahabaharata, is that Vishnu plucked out two of his hair, one white and the other black. These two hairs entered into the wombs of Rohini and Devaki, the two wives of Vasudeva. The white hair became Balrama, and the black hair (kesa) became Krishna. Hence the name Kesava.

Krishna, an incarnation of Vishnu, is "vyapke parameshvare"- one who, having created this world, reentered it. In order to rid the world of the forces of evil, sin, selfishness and the wicked oppressions of Kansa, Lord Krishna descended to the earthly plane.

Explaining the purpose of his birth, Krishna says in the Gita: "for the protection of the good, for the destruction of the wicked, and for the establishment of the righteousness, I come into being from age to age" ( Gita-- 4.8).

As God of Love, Krishna chose Vrindavan for his love ­play (Ras Lila). When he steals the clothes of Gopis , they request him to return their clothes. He exhorts them to come out, because they must not conceal anything, including their naked bodies, from their Lord, who knows them too well. They come out of the Yamuna and receive their clothes, as well as divine grace.

Today, when the world is torn apart because of selfishness and hatred, we must look for a Krishna within each one of us.
Only then we can hope to live a blissful life.
