Introduction

Krishna Mor Pankh Peacock Feather1. Lord Krishna is the 8th incarnation of the Lord Vishnu. According to the Bhagavata Purana, Krishna is termed as Svayam Bhagavan since he was the purna-avatara or full incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

2. Krishna is often described and portrayed as an infant or young boy playing a flute as in the Bhagavata Purana, or as a youthful prince giving direction and guidance as in the Bhagavad Gita. The stories of Krishna portray him in various perspectives: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero and the supreme being. The principal scriptures discussing Krishna's story are the Mahabharata, the Harivamsa, the Bhagavata Purana, and the Vishnu Purana.

3. Worship of the deity Krishna, either in the form of Vasudeva, Bala Krishna or Gopala, can be traced to as early as 4th century BC. Worship of Krishna as svayam bhagavan, or the supreme being, known as Krishnaism, arose in the Middle Ages in the context of the bhakti movement. From the 10th century AD, Krishna became a favourite subject in performing arts and regional traditions of devotion developed for forms of Krishna such as Jagannatha in Odisha, Vithoba in Maharashtra and Shrinathji in Rajasthan. Since the 1960s the worship of Krishna has also spread in the West, largely due to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness

Lord Krishna(Sanatan) & Sanatan Dharma(Hinduism)

1. One Name of Lord Krishna is Sanatan. Lord Krishna united the whole world, which was by then mostly divided. He gave knowledge to people in the form of Bhagvad Gita. A religion ensued in the whole of India after that and it was named after him as Sanatan Dharma.

2. The then Sanatan Dharma did not have any of the bad practices like Sati Pratha, Varna system was not enthrusted by birth, etc.

3. Persians called Indians as Hindu, because Indians lived on the other side of Indus river and Hindukush mountain.

4. During muslim rule Sanatan Dharma was called as Hindutva(Hinduism), which because of greedy nature of some religious leaders took the decision to enthrust Varna system by birth. Bad practices like Sati Pratha, Untouchability etc, were started afterwards.

5. Lord Krishna still remain the most endured of deities in Hinduism. He is the only Sampoorn Avatar(Complete God).

Lord Krishna Worship in Indus Valley Civilization, and Satyaki Connection to Indus Valley Civilization

993609_472135546210068_685118745_n1. As we go through Mahabharat, we come to understand that after the submergence of Dwarka, Hastinapur, and Patliputra, Yadavas formed Kingdoms in Delhi, Multan, Orissa, Tamil nadu, Kashmir, etc. One of the Kingdoms formed Under Krishna's Brother Satyaki's Grandson Yugandhar, was formed around the Saraswati River. This kingdom combined with other Yadav Kingdoms, can be traced to be the forefathers of the Indus Valley Civilization.

2. Euan Mackie, an eminent archaeologist, had found a clay tablet of Krishna's Yamalaarjuna episode at Mohenjedaro, a site of the Indus Valley civilisation proving that even in 2200 BC, there was a culture of worshipping Krishna. A steatite tablet excavated by Mackay in Mohanjodaro 1927-31 depicts two persons holding a tree and tree god is extending his hands towards them,Mackay considers that it illustrates the famous episode of krishna,known as Yamalarjuna-lila.

3. The Indus seals feature a number of important and dramatic Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals

4. The Harappan Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals s actually reflect the main Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals s of later Indian art with figures in seated meditation, sacred bulls, pipal leaf designs and even swastikas.

5. The most common Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals by far on the Indus seals, is that of a unicorn, a purely symbolic animal, which largely disappeared from the iconography of later India.

6. The Indus or Harappan unicorn always has a strange device like a cauldron always placed to its front, associating it with some sacrificial ritual. This device has been interpreted as an incense burner, fire altar or Soma filter. The seal is obviously primarily of religious value, not simply an artistic Krishna and the Unicorn of the Indus Seals much less a zoological representation.

7. From the underwater ruin of Dwarka (Lord Krishna`s ancient Capital city which was immersed in the sea) archaeologist in 2001 found metal tablet very similar which was found in Indus Valley civilization. This fact further establishes that the people in Indus Valley Civilization were the Yadavas of Dwarka who created their own kingdom under Satyaki's Grandson Yugandhara.

Krishna & Radha

1. The stories of Krishna's play with the gopis (milkmaids) of Brindavana, especially Radha (daughter of Vrishbhanu, one of the original residents of Brindavan) became known as the Rasa lila and were romanticised in the poetry of Jayadeva, author of the Gita Govinda. These became important as part of the development of the Krishna bhakti traditions worshiping Radha Krishna.

2. Radha & Krishna are inseparable as far as worshipping is considered.

Lifting Govardhan Parvat

Lord Krishna Lifts Govardhan

1. Every year the residents of Vrindavana worshiped Lord Indra for supplying rain.

2. One year when Krishna was a youth, He asked Nand Baba to worship Govardhana Hill instead of Indra. Krishna argued, "We do not derive any special benefit from Indra. Our specific relationship is with Govardhana Hill and Vrindavana forest. Let us have nothing to do with Indra." This is a great thought of Lord Krishna that Nature is greater than any demi-god.

3. King Nanda finally agreed with Krishna and prepared to offer the sacrifice to Govardhana Hill. This made Lord Indra angry and jealous.

4. Forgetting the divine position of Krishna, Indra reasoned, "These cowherd men in Vrindavana have neglected my authority on the advice of this talkative boy who is known as Krishna. He is nothing but a child, and by believing this child, they have enraged me."

5. Indra then sent a storm to devastate Vrindavana.

6. All the people and animals came to Krishna for shelter.

7. In a miraculous show of strength, Krishna lifted Govardhana Hill with one finger to make the mountain into a huge umbrella.

8. Everyone crowded underneath it and remained safe until the rains stopped.

9. Later, Lord Indra realized his mistake in attacking Krishna and apologized.

10. This is an example of one of the demigods behaving like a demon. Krishna Book explains, "Indra became angry because he thought that he was all in all within this universe and that no one was as powerful as he."
