Krishna is the ultimate GOD

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare. Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare.

Krishna took birth in Dwapar Yuga to destroy the evil forces and to start a new chapter in Hinduism's history. Krishna had a dark complexion which later changed to sky blue. This happened when Krishna dived into the Yamuna river to teach Kalia (Kaliya) naag a lesson. The naag was poisoning the entire river due to which many innocents were getting killed. Initially, the naag threw venom on Krishna in order to kill him; however, it didn't impact Krishna (just changed his complexion). Not just Kaliya Naag, Krishna also killed many other powerful demons, such as Trunavarta, Keshi, Aristhasur, Bakasur, Pralambasur and others. While eliminating such negative personalities, Krishna was eventually preparing to dethrone Kansa (the evil king); however, this was not the main objective of his birth.

Kaaliya finally accepted defeat and left Yamuna so that people of Gokul and others who were using Yamuna's water could live without any issues. However, the Lord looked even more beautiful and stunning due to his 'Sky Blue Complexion'. The Gopis fell for Krishna's complexion, glow, flute playing capabilities and above all, his ability to attract cows. Krishna's flute had the magic to attract all his Bhakts towards him. Whenever Krishna played flute, blissful vibrations were created in the mind and the body of his Bhakts. The impact of his flute was mesmerizing as the cows would forget to eat grass, the Gopis would leave their household chores to listen to the flute and other Bhakts would forget their worldly duties and would lay still while Krishna would play his music. 

During his childhood, Krishna was also very naughty as he would steal white butter from the pots of various households and distribute it amongst his friends. He was also very fond of breaking the matkis of Gopis. Yashoda often heard many complaints against Krishna's mischievous behavior; however, she was unable to control Krishna. One day, Yashoda got really angry and she tied Krishna's hands and body along with a column so that he could not go out of the house to play any further mischiefs.

Soon a neighbor entered Yashoda's house complaining about Krishna. She claimed that Krishna stole the white butter from her house today; however, Yashoda didn't believe her neighbor as Krishna was not allowed to go out of the house. But the neighbor was inconsolable as she was also very sure of Krishna's mischief. At this point, Yashoda took her neighbor to the place where Krishna was tied and indicated that Krishna didn't go out at all. When Yashoda's neighbor saw Krishna tied with a rope, she fainted as she had also seen Krishna in her house. This is how Krishna used to play around with his bhakts while his bhakts were completely oblivious with his reality.

Haathi Ghode Palki, Jai Kanhaiya Lal ki. Bolo Maakhan Chor Krishna Murari ki Jai.
