Story of Lord Krishna

Story of Lord Krishna - SRIMAD BHAGAVATA by Krsna-Dwaipayana Vyasa



The Killing of the Demons Kesi and Vyoma







1. The demon Kesi, sent by Kamsa, appeared in Vraja as a great horse. Running with the speed of the mind, he tore up the earth with his hooves. The hairs of his mane scattered the clouds and the demigods’ airplanes throughout the sky, and he terrified… Continue

they can be seen by direct…

Attaining peace from material miseries

Krsna says, "I am equal to everyone. I'm not envious of anyone, or I

But people accuse Him: "Why God has created this distress? Why I am

suffering?"



But we are suffering for our own fault. God created you to become

happy. He's happy and you are part and parcel of Krsna so you…

The one who dispels the darkness of sensuous pleasures and pains (which are temporary and fleeting) and takes you to the light of eternal bliss (which is permanent and everlasting),… Continue

Gopis from Guyana - The Times of India

The Jagannath Yatra is symbolic of unity in diversity, writes Mona Mehta


Much like a gopi from the Ragamala miniatures, Satyabhama, a 32-year-old Krishna devotee from Guyana, wore a green ghagra or long skirt and embroidered duppatta, teamed with a rust-coloured blouse. Swaying to the music of mridangam and cymbals, she chanted 'Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare', as she pulled the ropes of the Lord Jagannath's chariot in the yatra organised…
