Krishna Tales

Posted Date - 24-08-2016 | Posted By - Kalavithi

Hindu mythology reveres Lord Krishna, in his various forms. The stories of Krishna's life are referred to as Krishna Leela. These stories describe the various ploys of Krishna as a mischievous baby and as he grew up in Mathura and Vrindavan to become the apple of eye not only for his mother, but for all the ladies of Mathura. The young girls, referred to as Gopikas or Gopis, were in love with his melodious flute, and used to compete with each other for his attention. Krishna, in his divinity, appeared to each and every Gopi as if he was with her in their dance, called Raas Leela, thus acknowledging their devotion. Krishna grew up to be the ruler of Mathura, and subsequently was the mentor and charioteer to Arjun in Mahabharat, the war in Kurukshetra, where he gave the sermon of teachings of the Gita, the way of life. The teachings of Gita have been found to be relevant in all contexts of life and all the time spans, called the 'Yug's in Hindu mythology.

Indian Folklore celebrates Krishna in all forms - whether it is the colorful Madhubani showing Krishna steal the Gopis' clothes, the ornate Kalamkari showing the love dance of Radha and Krishna, the very detailed and intricate Pattachitra from Odisha showing Radha, Krishna and Gopis, the soulful Kangra showing the divine love of Radha and Krishna, or the huge wall size Kalamkari showing Krishna guiding Arjun to place duty before emotions and ties!
