    Pls read 11th Canto chapter 30 and 31 of the Srimad Bhagavatam where the disappearance of Lord Krsna is vividly described.

    Krishna and His Name is not different or His Deity Form is not different in this way Krishna did not leave us :-D He is always with us!

    For example, He is in the center of Mumbai!

    And where ever is Sri Krishna there is Vrindavan Dham! :-D

    Hare Krishna. PAMHO. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    The hunter who had made a arrow out of the small piece was once hunting and Krishna was resting under a banyan tree. The hunter from a far distance saw the base of Krishna's foot which he thought to be a dear. Thus he took the arrow made out of the small iron piece and shot the Lord. Afterwards when he came near he was surprised to see the Lord Himself. He was very grieved and asked for forgiveness. The Lord said, "You were Bali in your previous birth and I was Lord Rama and I had killed you secretly and you wanted to take revenge. Thus in this birth I am fulfilling your desire and this was all my plan only." thus saying this Lord Krishna went away to his eternal abode, Goloka. 

    We are not enough pure thus we may think that Krishna died but the truth is that Krishna can never die,He is eternal, but for his earthly Lilas he takes birth and dies too like normal people.

    • No. You are wrong. This is wrong information. Please don't comment when you have half knowledge.

      Krishna is GOD. How can God die? God can never die. Neither He is ever born. He is always Spiritual/Transcendental.

      He doesn't take a material body like us made of 5 gross elements. Even during His Lilas, He stays in His original Sac Chit Ananada Svarupa (Pure, Eternal, Full of Knowledge and Bliss form).

      Please read Bhagavad Gita As It Is 4.9 "One who knows the transcendental nature of My appearance and activities does not, upon leaving the body, take his birth again in this material world, but attains My eternal abode, O Arjuna."

      All the activities of God including His Appearance and Disappearance are all Completely Divine and Transcendental to the modes of material nature. 


      Just like we say, Sun has appeared in the Sky in morning and Sun has disappeared in the Night. We never sun "Sun has born or taken birth in Morning and Sun is dead in Night."


      Krishna appeared out of His own internal potency on Earth and disappeared when He wanted to. Jara the Hunter had nothing to do with the Lord's disappearance. He sure hit the arrow at His lotus feet but we never saw Krishna as dead, He immediately disappeared and went back to His abode.


      Please be very clear that God is not like us, He is always Spiritual no matter in which world He is right now, material or spiritual. He has Divine Body, not gross body like us.


      Just think, if the Soul can never die, how can the Supersoul, God, die?


      I hope you understand my points, please forgive my offenses but I had to reply.
