Lord Krishna said:
Whosoever desires to worship me with devotion
and attention in whatsoever form (since all are my forms) I give unto
them whatsoever they desire through the very same form.
The Supreme Lord
Lord Krishna is the symbol of many virtues. He is one of the most
widely revered and most popular of all Hindu divinities, worshipped
as the eighth incarnation (avatar, or avatara) of Vishnu
and also as a supreme god in his own right. Krishna became the focus
of numerous bhakti (devotional) cults, which over the centuries have
produced a wealth of religious poetry, music, and painting.
Krishna is the symbol of an able statesman, a warior, a great philospher
and a teacher. He is the symbol of love, devotion and joy.
The consort of Krishna is Radha. His love for her is an allegory of
the union of The Supreme with nature.
The basic sources of Krishna's mythology are the epic Mahabharata
and its 5th-century-AD appendix, the Harivamsha, and the Puranas,
particularly books 10 and 11 of the Bhagavata-Purana.
