KRISHNA, one of the many gods of Hinduism, is the embodiment of charismatic love, immaculate beauty, celestial joy and eternal youth. He is an incarnation of VISHNU, the Preserver in the triad of Gods Brahma Vishnu and Maheswara.
KRISHNA is so beautiful that he is often referred to as a doll. Many can’t make out from his overwhelmingly refined looks whether he is a man or a woman. Also known as being the perfect union between man and woman or between God and his devotee, he embodies the pleasure, emotion and everlasting rapture that is derived from love making.
In every incarnation, VISHNU meets up, adores and caresses his beloved wife LAKSHMI, the goddess of wealth, beauty, prosperity and knowledge. In His incarnation as KRISHNA, he finds LAKSHMI as his beloved RADHA, the embodiment of the perfect woman and lover.
KRISHNA is also known as the flute player. His enchanting music is known to make his devotees crazily fall in love with him.
KRISNA opens the heart to the pleasure of love. Wherever KRISHNA is installed, love beckons, love sings and dances; the soul is uplifted to celestial summit.
KRISNA is also known by other adorable names- Murali Gopala (the flute player), Chitchor (the stealer of hearts), and SRI (God), Shyama.
It is believed that if we see a statue of KRISHNA, we touch him, and we love him, we must take him and keep him.
‘Those who worship gods, become gods; those who worship ancestors become ancestors; those who worship the elements master the elements; and THOSE WHO WORSHIP ME GAIN ME!’- Bhagavad Gita 9.25
ODE TO MY BELOVED
You are born again and again
Like a flame in my heart, my Beloved!
My eyes marvel and rejoice at your sight
In the darkness you are my light!
In the void your voice is rapturous music
When you are with me nothing is amiss
Every droplet of rain is a cup of bliss
Every thorn is a budding lotus flower
Every woe is over and done forever!
