Who Was Pondrak, Why Did Shreekrishna Kill Him.


Who was Pondrak, why did  Shreekrishna kill him.


In the scriptures and mythological texts of our Sanatan Dharma, various incarnations of God are found, in the present era, or in the era of Lord Krishna, i.e., in the Dwapar Yuga, an interesting description of a fake incarnation is found in the dasham skandha of the Srimad Bhagavat Granth.


The story of this fake avatar of Dwapar yuga gives us a very important lesson  which is very relevant in today's Kali Yuga.  But first we go towards the story.  It is about the time of Dwapar yuga when Lord Krishna was as Dwarkadhish and in a vast area of ​​the sea, he built his very beautiful Dwarka city . At the same time, King Pondrak of Karush desha once sent his messenger to Lord Krishna and said, 'I am Lord Vasudev, the real incarnation of God , no one else.'
When the envoy of Pondrak came to the assembly  , Lord Krishna was sitting in Dwarka's assembly with his members .  The messenger appeared and told his king Pondrak's message in front of everyone, "I am the only Vasudeva, there is no one else.
I have taken an avatar for grace the creatures of the world.  You have falsely named your name Vasudev, now leave it.  Yaduvanshi Veer!  You are foolishly wearing my sign.  Leave them and come to my shelter and if you do not agree, fight with me. " At that time, listening to the message of King Pondrak, who claimed to be the incarnation of the real God, all the members including Ugrasen started laughing.
Shri Krishna also smilingly said to Pondrak's messenger, "Go and tell your king that it will be decided in the war, who is the real Vasudeva?"  And yes to tell him to abandon foolishness and take the shelter of knowledge, otherwise I will not remove my chakras and other symbol . I will leave them to him and not only to him, but also to all his friends, by whom he is being misled like this. "
King Pondrak was living in Kashi at that time with his friend Kashiraj.  After the answer given by Krishna to Pondrak's messenger, there was a war between them.  The armies on both sides came into the ground, the king of Kashi with his huge army was behind Pondrak's army.

At that time, Pondrak had put on his body signs of conch, chakra, mace, sword, Sharang dhanusha( bow) and shrivats made of divine science and technology.  Artificial Kaustubhamani (who was also giving the impression of artificial divinity) and Vanamala were hanging on the chest.  He was wearing silky yellow clothes (like Lord Vishnu) and also put a Garuda symbol on the flag of the chariot.
He was wearing a priceless crown on his head, which was giving an absolutely amazing aura and the earlobes of his ears were shining, that fake Krishna kept his costume completely divine (but artificially).  It seemed as if some other place (planet) creature had come to the earth.

For a moment, Lord Shri Krishna challenged him and  start loudly laughing ,when looked at that fake avatar , who  announced real Vashudeva himself .  Krishna's laughter not liked by Pondrak.
After this Pondrak attacked on Lord Krishna with Trishul, mace and other weapons.  Lord Krishna destroyed the elephants, chariots and horses of the army of Pondrak and Kashiraj in a moment.  After this, Lord Krishna severed the head of that fake avatar by striking his Sudarshan Chakra.
Thousands of years before Pondrak, Hiranyakashipu also introduced himself as God, he was reprimanded his son Prahlada  for not to worshiping any god as  none other than me. That demon made a miserable attempt to inflict inhuman tortures on his own son Bhaktaraja Prahlada, in allegation of devotion to God.
In the end, his sins were cross the limit and Lord Narasimha appeared from the pillar , tore the stomach of that self-announced Lord Hiranyakashipu and destroyed his ego.
Bharatvarsha is the holy land of incarnations.  Here, many incarnations like Lord Shri Krishna, Lord Shri Rama etc. incarnated in human form for the protection of Cow, Brahmins, saints and for the re-establishment of dharma, but it is very unfortunate that like Pondrak and Hiranyakashipu from time to time also many such  type people are born, who claim to be true incarnations, continue to exploit the naïve devotees religiously.
Every Sanatani(the follower of sanatan dharma) must read the 'Gita Gyan' provided by 'Yogeshwar Maharaj Shri Krishna'.  This is our basic duty.  If you read the Gita, understand the Mahabharata, contemplates the character of Shri Krishna, then your knowledge eye will open.  You will understand why the sages, the saints have called him the real God.
As if we consider as Pondraka , he used to always contemplate the form of God, whatever he was thinking, he used to remember him again and again in disguise, so all his bonds were cut off.  He died at the hands of God and he attained salvation, but the aim of these Kaliyugi Gods is only selfishness and exploitation.  Far from remembering the form of God, these people do all the work directly against their principles;  Therefore, we should alert from this such type of peoples.

Duryodhan's death was the cause of his mother Gandhari.

Duryodhan's death was the cause of his mother Gandhari.
A woman was the cause of the destruction of the Kauravas.  We all know that the Kaurava dynasty ended due to  Draupadi's insult .  But are you aware of the fact that the cause of Duryodhana's death was not Draupadi but his mother Gandhari.
Let us know how Gandhari caused the death of her own son.

The era may have been there, but the mother and child's relationship has remained unbreakable.  A mother has always wanted that her child be away from every problem .  Direct evidence of this is found in the Mahabharata that took place in the Dwapara era.

Gandhari was a devoted woman.  It was her dedication to blind husband Dhritarashtra that she too blindfolded.  Its also tell that Gandhari was the unique devotee of Lord Bholenath.  It was her reverence and worship that Shivji gave  Gandhari to a wonderful boon.

According to the story, according to the boon given by Bholenath, if Gandhari would see anybody by removing the cloth on her eyes.  His body would become like Vraj.  This was the reason that she never removed the cloth on her eyes.
As such, Gandhari always kept cloth on her eyes .  But when the war of Mahabharata reached its final stage.  The great warriors of the Kauravas and 99 sons of Gandhari died, then Gandhari facinated by son's love and she was afraid of the death of her son Duryodhana.  In such a situation, Duryodhana was ordered to take a bath in the Ganges and come to naked.

As per the orders of his mother, Duryodhana went to bathe in the Ganges.  After bathing, when Duryodhana started going to appear in front of her in a naked state as his mother said.  At this time he met Shri Krishna on the way.  Shri Krishna knew the reason for Duryodhana to go to his mother in naked.

That is why he cleverly asked Duryodhana to take his trap of words that you do not feel ashamed, in such a situation how can you go towards the palace?  When you were a child, you could go in front of your mother in any form, but now you have grown up, it is unfair to go in front of mother Gandhari.

Duryodhana came to the words of Shri Krishna and covered the lower part of his waist with leaves and then appeared before Gandhari.  As soon as Duryodhana came, she opened her eyes , her eyes fell on Duryodhana's naked body, due to which his body became as hard as Vajra.  But the part on which Duryodhana tied the leaves.  Gandhari's vision could not fall on that part and the thighs part of the body could not become rigid.
Due to which this part of his body remained weak and he died as a result.  During the battle of Mahabharata, Duryodhana died only after  when Bhima attacked Duryodhana's thigh.

Perhaps the location and time of each destiny event is fixed.


Perhaps the location and time of each destiny event is fixed.


Today I have brought an article on such a subject, on which there can be a long debate. Some people may accept it or reject it.

1st story:-

Once it was very cold.  All humans, animals and birds all were suffering.  In such a way, a vulture was sitting on a tree's top in the sunlight to overcome his cold.  At the same time, Yamraj came out from there.

As soon as he saw the vulture sitting on the tree, his eyes got stressed but he said nothing and went his way.  He went own way, but the vulture's life dried up after seeing his attitude.  Now he was shivering with fear not to cold .  In the meantime, Narada ji came to pronounce 'Narayan-Narayan'.  Narada ji saw the trembling vulture and stopped and asked,  vulture are your health good?  You trembling very badly, what's the matter?  Tell me if you need any help.

The vulture stuttering with great difficulty told that Yamraj had just left from here.  I did not even make any mistake, knowingly or unknowingly, yet he has gone to see me with a very crooked eye.  Looked very angry.  This makes me feel very fear.  Narada ji thought after two minutes and said that you do one thing. There is a hill called Ramtek at a distance of 100 yojan(one yojan=12 to15 KM) from here.  Go hide in his cave , till then I talk to Yamraj and ask the reason for his displeasure.

The vulture obeyed him and took refuge in the hill of Ramtek.  In the meantime, Narada ji went to Yamraj and asked what happened today, Maharaj, you had attained anger at that helpless vulture early  morning. Yamraj said, "Oh nothing, as soon as I got out, I saw that vulture in front."  Tonight is the culmination of his life which is to be completed in the hills of Ramtek a hundred yojan (one yojan=12 to15 KM) away.  I was thinking that it should be there, what is it doing here.

 Now , Narada ji could not understand whether he did good or bad.



2nd story:-


One day the thought of Garuda Dev, the vehicle of Lord Vishnu, came to mind that why not visit the earth once.  During his visit, when Garuda Dev reached Lord Vishnu's patil putra temple,  then he saw a pigeon trembling while sitting on the platform.  Seeing his position, he wondered in the courtyard of the Lord's temple there is no fear and why is this pigeon trembling despite sitting in the sun? He asked the reason for trembling with that pigeon, that pigeon first bowed to him and after that said that Yamraj came here shortly before the you came.  When his eyes fell on me, he said that this unfortunate creature will die as soon as the sun rises tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow is the last day of my life, how can anyone know how to control themselves?  That is why I am trembling with fear of death, I do not want to die yet, please protect my life and save me from this trouble. Hearing the scorn of that pigeon pleaded, he felt pity on him as well as his thought that why should not Yamraj be challenged.  He pressed the pigeon in its huge claws and led it away from the temple courtyard to a safe cave.  Garuda Dev flew away by making the cave situated on the Malayagandh mountain safe.

From there, he flew directly towards Yamraj's city of Yamlok, in his mind he was eager to tell Yamraj about his success in protecting pigeon's life.  He wanted to tell Yamraj that he had failed his plan by protecting the life of the pigeon. When Yamraj came to know that Garuda Dev himself had come to Yamlok, he honored him and placed him on the sit and asked the purpose of coming to Yamlok.

Then Garuda Dev very proudly told him that the pigeon that was about to die today has saved by me.  On hearing him, Yamraj smiled and asked Chitragupta about that pigeon.  Seeing in his book, Chitragupta Maharaj said that the pigeon living in the temple of Lord Vishnu's patil putra temple will become the food of the snake in a cave in the Malayagandh mountain just after sunrise today, and that incident has been completed just a while ago.

Hearing this, Garuda Dev's surprise  and he went directly to the cave where he saw that the snake had eaten that pigeon.  He was very sad to see that instead of protecting the pigeon, he himself had brought it to the mouth of death.  After reaching Baikuntha Lok, Garuda Dev was sitting in solitude with a sad heart, then Lord Vishnu understood his agony and explained to him that at the time of birth,  the time of death is also be fixed and the law of Brahma cannot be changed.

Even if we look at the ancient texts of Hinduism, we also see many such incidents in which prophecy has been spoken.  Like it was already predicted that Krishna would kill Kansa.  In the Ramayana, it was already determined that Lord Rama would come to Shabri's ashram and also give moksha to Ahilya.
One such mention is made in Tulsidas ji well in Ramcharitmanas.  In which he is explaining that no one can do anything in whatever is already scheduled.
That means, it is what Sri Rama has already decided .  Who can expand their thinking by arguments ?

A prediction can be made only when something like a future exists.  If nothing has happened then how can it be told with clarity beforehand.  This also proves that whatever is happening with us has already been determined.
There have been many sages in our history who were trikaldarshi.  Maharishi Valmiki had written before the Uttarakand of Ramayana when incident were took place.  Even today, there are such sages-saints in the ancient caves of the Himalayas who have the ability to see past and future by meditating.
It is mentioned in the Balmiki Ramayana that not only Rama and Sita but also Dashrath ji and Guru Vashistha knew beforehand what was going to happen in the future.
Durvasa Rishi had already told Dashrath ji that his son Rama would have to suffer 14 years of exile.  Guru Matang also knew that Shreerama would come to his ashram one day and give  darshan to Shabri.
Devaki's eighth son would kill Kansa, but Kansa himself also knew this prophecy.

Story of Kubja's previous birth



In Indian mythological texts, Kubja is one such character whose interesting and surprising stories are found in relation to births.  In the eleventh chapter of Garga Samhita, there is a story of King Bahulashv.
Once, while listening to the story from Narada Muni, Bahulashv asked him, “Muniver.  That Sairandhri Kubja had done which type of  hard penance in her former life, as a result of which the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna pleased upon her.
Because his less happiness is also rare for the gods?  On this, Devrishi Narada told him that it was a long time ago.  In the Treta Yuga, when Surpnakha saw Lord Rama in the Panchavati, seeing his attractive human form, she became enamored with facinated by her heart.
But she saw that Rama's affection is not going on her at all, while Suparnakha was wandering as a very lavanayamayi( beautiful) at that time.  She noted that Ram was extremely disgusted and no interest  upon seeing her and his only affection was towards Bhagwati Sita ji.
Due to seeing this scene , Surpnakha burning in this jealousy, rushed towards her to eat Sita ji, but Lakshman ji was alert.  He (Laxman ji) also immediately cut off his nose and ears.  Laxman ji wanted to kill her but Lord Rama forbade him to do so, he only asked Laxman ji to punish her and as a result Laxman ji cut off the nose and ears of that Surpnakha.
Disgusted by her insults, Surpnakha, burning in anger, came to her brother Ravana and prayed to Ravana to kidnap Sita.  When Ravana kidnapped Sita ji, she once again found Rama Lakshmana alone in the forest and came to pray (to Lord Rama) to marry her.
But even this time her wish was not fulfilled.  Now she was completely disappointed.  In the end, when Ravana was killed and also Rama without sita did not interested by her beauty, she was sadded and disappointed, she remained in the Pushkar region, meditating on the form of Lord Shiva and started penace.
In the end, when the Lord Mahadeva appeared and asked her to ask for boon, she wished Rama as her husband.  On this, Lord Shankar gave her the boon of getting him from Krishna form in the future i.e. Dwapara Yuga.  The same Suparnakha became Kubja in Dwapara.
She was born in Mathura as Kubja, a demon named Surpnakha, who had the ability to change the form according to her desire and she became beloved of Krishna only by the boon of Devadhidev Mahadev.  

The story of Kubja is given in Sri Lomash Ramayana in another way.

According to that texts, at the time of Ramavatar, Kaikayi Maid Manthara was Krishna Priya Kubja in Dwapar yuga.  In a summary , the story goes like this: The people of Ayodhya came to know that instead of crowning their beloved Prince Rama, he was being sent for exile for fourteen years. And behind all this,  Kaikeyi's maid Manthara has the hand of this incident , so they all were enraged at the Manthara and those enraged Ayodhya's people asked Shri Lomash ji, “Lord! Why is this manthra opposed to Rama?  Whereas animals, birds, fools, schloar, trees etc. are  lovers of our Rama ”.

To this Lomash ji replied, “Manthara was the granddaughter of Prahlada and daughter of Virochan in the previous birth.  Even in that birth, its name was Manthara. When her younger brother Bali was in his mother's womb,  then the gods plan to cheated Virochan,  gods taking the form of a Brahmin and asked Virochan to donate his entire life to the Brahmins. So Dani(donor) Virochan gave up his body.  After which the demons became destitute.  They went to the shelter of Manthara.  Manthara assured them of defense.  Due to which the demons Shambar, Maya, Baan etc. came out for war, but they lost to the gods.
Then Manthara became fiercely angry at the gods and  in anger she tied all the gods through Nagpasha.  Narada Ji requested  to Lord Narayana for solution to this misfortune of gods  . Lord Vishnu gave immense power to Indra by which Indra not only cut the bond of Nagpasha but with the same power Indra defeated Manthara and made her unconscious.
Due to the influence of that divine power, Manthara's body became crippled, it became Kubja.  The demon women also ridiculed her from behind.  In the next birth after death, she was born in the same form in the Kashmir region and became the maid of Kaikayi to seek vengeance from Lord Vishnu, and she interrupted the establishment of Ram Rajya, due to which she was in infamy the whole world.
Due to her this infamy the lord saved her at the time of Krishnavatar.

Why did Balarama not participate in the Mahabharata war?


Why did Balarama not participate in the Mahabharata war?
After all, even after being the most powerful, Balaram did not fight the war of Mahabharata, what was the reason behind it, know



In the war of Mahabharata, all the great warriors of that time were involved, some were fighting in favor of Pandavas, some were fighting against Pandavas, but in that war there was a warrior who was stronger and more powerful than all the warriors.  But still that warrior did not take part in this war, this warrior was none other than Shri Krishna's brother Balarama. Balarama had fought many wars in his life and won all but still did not take part in the war of Mahabharata.

Despite being the most powerful, Balarama  strongly refused to take part in the battle of Mahabharata to Shri Krishna. He told Shri Krishna that both Arjuna and Duryodhana are his friends, he has given knowledge to both of them many times, They are all the same for him, how he can fight with them. And he also advised Shri Krishna not to join this war, but Shri Krishna also solved this problem and told to Duryodhana that he  choose one of me and my army and after hearing this, Duryodhana thought that "how would I win the war with the help of alone Krishna and he chose the Narayani Sena (army) of Shri Krishna.


In the Mahabharata, it is said that when the preparations for the war were going on, Balram reached the cantonment of Pandavas, where Shri Krishna Arjuna and Yudhishthira were already present. Seeing Balarama , they all were very happy and Balarama sat down with Yudhishthir and said with a very sad heart that how many times I told Krishna that both the Pandavas and the Kauravas are the same for me. I do not discriminate against anyone. But the foolishness in these two minds is now understood and both of them are going to war in vain, we do not need to fall into it, but Krishna has so much affection with Arjuna that he is now fighting in the opposition of Kauravas, now such a situation how can I go against Krishna?

I have taught both Bhima and Duryodhana to war skill of gada, both are my disciples and I love them both equally.  I cannot see these two fighting amongst themselves, that's why I am going on pilgrimage. Saying so, Balram departure for the pilgrimage and did not participate in the war of Mahabharata.

Why did Balarama want to drown Hastinapur in the Ganges.


Why did Balarama want to drown Hastinapur in the Ganges.

Hello and Welcome friends


Today's story is described in the 25th chapter of the 5th verse of Vishnupurana, according to the story ....
Balabhadra or Balarama was the step elder brother of Sri Krishna who was born from Rohini's womb.  Balaram, Haladhar, Halayudh, Sankarshan etc. he has many names. It is said about Balarama ji that in anger he was adept at teaching all the warriors to the good thing.  It is written in the scriptures that Balram ji had a special attachment with the Kauravas.  Especially from Duryodhana.  Duryodhana was his beloved disciple. Balarama had also reprimanded the Pandavas on his death.  Then what was it that he was going to do while Duryodhana and his entire clan were dragged from the earth and drowning in the Ganges.

 Many love stories have been mentioned in the Puranas.  There is deception in some love stories, and in some stories there is a feeling of colliding with the world to get love. The love of Sri Krishna and Rukmini was also something that affects the youth very much.  Sri Krishna collided with the entire army to get Rukmini and  after victory he married with Rukmini in Dwarka. 
Shamba was the most affected by the love of Shri Krishna, and he was do fight the world in love like father, but the result was different.  Shamba, son of Jambavati and Shri Krishna, was equally beautiful and virtuous as Shri Krishna.  Once, Duryodhana's daughter Lakshmana fell in love with Shamba when she saw him.  Samb was also impressed by Lakshmana and fell in love.

Both wanted to get married.  But Duryodhana did not agree on this.  One day, seeing the opportunity, Shamba  taking Lakshmana in his chariot and going toward  Dwarika.  When the Kauravas came to know about this, the Kauravas came to battle Shamba with their entire army.

The Kauravas took Samb captive and brought him back to Hastinapur. When the Yaduvanshis came to know, they started preparing for war with the Kauravas, but Sri Krishna's elder brother Balaram stopped them and came to Hastinapur to talk to the Kauravas themselves.

Coming here, he said to the Kauravas to send Shamba and Lakshmana to Dwarka.  Then the Kauravas greatly insulted him.  Duryodhana and his family, already angry, did not agree to this.  Even on the repeated request of  Balarama, the Kaurava side was not ready to listen to him.

Balarama became enraged by the behavior of the Kauravas.  Angry Balaram took own plow in hand.  He bound the entire Hastinapur from the plow and proceeded directly towards the Ganges.  Angry, he warned Duryodhana that if he did not leave Shamba, he would immerse the entire Hastinapur in the Ganges.

Seeing the anger of Balaram, the Kauravas made sense in reconciliation.  When Samb was released, he  got Lakshmana married with vaidic rituals in Dwarika by blessing of Balrama.

***Stories of lord shree krishna***

1. Krishna and Kalia Nag.

There was a beautiful freshwater lake connected by the river Yamuna.  Somewhere a very poisonous snake came and lived there, whose name was Kalia.  Kalia's poison was rapidly dissolving in the water of Yamuna river. Once a cow grazing person drank the water of that lake, he died.  When Lord Krishna came to know about this, he made the person alive with his power.
After that Shri Krishna jumped into the water of that lake.  Krishna went deep into the water and started calling that snake loudly.  When Krishna did not come out of the water for too long, the people of the village gathered and waited for him by the river.  Many people also started getting scared.  After some time, the Kalia snake came from inside the water in front of Krishna and on coming he attacked Krishna. In a short while, Krishna grabbed Kalia and climbed his head.  Kalia was a snake with a thousand heads.  Krishna started dancing fast on his head and due to the fast dancing, the blood of Kalia snake started coming out.  Seeing this, Kalia's wife came above the water and begged for Kalia's life. Krishna asked them to leave the Yamuna river  and go to the Ramanika dweep.  At the same time, Krishna assured Kalia that Garuda would never attack him now because Krishna's footprints had print on Kalia's head. Kalia was overjoyed to hear this and left that beautiful lake in the river Yamuna and left with his wife.  Thus Krishna protected the village from Kalia snake.

2 . Krishna and Govardhan mountain .

Once upon a time, Devraj Indra was very angry with the people of  Braj because people were listening to Lord Krishna and worshiping Govardhan Parvat and not worshiping Indra Dev.  Enraged, Indra sent clouds to rain heavily to punish them, causing the possibility of flooding throughout Vrindavan.
Let's say, the black clouds over Vrindavan started raining heavily.  Most people's houses were washed away due to excessive rainfall and floods. The people of Vrindavan got scared and all reached the shelter of Lord Krishna.  Lord Krishna had known everything about this situation.  At the same time Krishna lifted the entire Govardhan mountain like an umbrella on the little finger of his left hand. All the people and cows of Vrindavan started coming down one by one under the Govardhan mountain and thus Krishna saved the lives of the people of Vrindavan.  The people of Vrindavan were surprised to see this amazing  miracle of Krishna.  Seeing the power of Lord Krishna, the clouds returned and the residents of Vraj started living happily.

3 . Lord Krishna and Arishthasura 

Once a big bull entered Vrindavan and suddenly started attacking the people of the village.  The bull broke the house of many people due to which many people were also hurt. When Krishna came to know about this, he immediately approached the bull.  Shri Krishna discovered that the bull is a demon.  The name of that asura was Arishthasura.  On seeing Krishna, he ran to attack Krishna rapidly. Lord Krishna defeated him with his power.  As soon as he was defeated, the bull sat down in front of Lord Krishna.  He then told Krishna that he was a disciple of guru Brihaspati and had been cursed to become an asura bull due to mistreating his guru.  Thus Krishna saved the people of Braj from Arishthasura.

4 . Makhanchor lord Krishna

You must have known that Lord Krishna loved eating Makhan.  Because of Krishna stealing Makhan, his mother as well as all the people of Vrindavan got fed up due to Krishna stealing Makhan.  Lord Krishna's mother Yashoda used to hang Makhan's Matki in the upper part of the roof so that Krishna could not reach there and steal Makhan by eating it. Once, Yashoda Ma left home due to some urgent work.  At that time Krishna brought all his friends there.  With their help, he reached Makhan's Matki and broke Makhan's Matki and ate all Makhan.  Yashoda mother reached there at the same time.  All of Krishna's companions fled, but Krishna remained there.  After that Krishna got a good scolding from Yashoda's mother.

5 . Lord Krishna and a woman selling fruits

Once a woman was selling fruits.  While she was passing in front of Shri Krishna's house, Shri Krishna felt like eating some fruit.  When Krishna asked for some fruit from the woman who sold the fruit, she asked Krishna for something in return. Krishna went running inside the house to give food grains instead of fruits and came back to the fruit seller with a handful of grains.  But as he came, the whole grain fell from his hands. Krishna repeatedly goes inside the house and tries to bring some grains in his hand, but the whole grain would fall down.  She was very happy to see this and gave all the fruits to Krishna. Krishna was very happy with that woman.  When she went from Krishna's house containing her empty crate  and reached her home, she saw that her basket was full of gold and jewels.

6 .  Why Krishna called as Govinda

One day a cow named Kamadhenu came from heaven to Lord Krishna.  That cow told Krishna that she had come to anoint him from the Dev Lok because Krishna is protecting the cows on earth. The cow bathed Krishna with holy water and thanked him wholeheartedly.  At the same time, Lord Indra, seated on his elephant Airavat, appeared there and blessed Shri Krishna and said that people of the whole world will know you by the name of Govinda for these virtuous works.

7. Krishna and Putna 

The slaughter of Krishna's maternal uncle Kansa was decided by Lord Krishna.  After knowing this, Kansa used to send different asuras to slay Krishna.  Once Kansa sent a demon named Pootana.  Pootna reached Vrindavan and changed the disguise of a beautiful woman and started looking for Krishna in every house. At that time Krishna was very young.  When she reached Krishna's house, she recognized Krishna and picked up her lap for feeding  poisonous milk .  When she started feeding her poisonous milk to Krishna, she felt that Krishna would die as soon as he was drinking milk, but Krishna continued to drink milk till the demon woman died.  As soon as she died, she came into her real cruel form.

Interesting mythology of Kanha and Kumhar


Prabhu Shri Krishna has done many leela with the gopis.  Shri Krishna used to break the gopis's matki and steal makhan(butter )and the gopis went to Yashoda Maiya with complain of Shri Krishna.  This happened many times. Once upon a time, Yashoda Maiya got fed up with the complain of Lord Krishna and ran towards Shri Krishna with a stick.  When Prabhu saw his mother in anger, he started running to defend himself.  While running, Shri Krishna reached a Kumhar (potter).
The potter was busy making his clay pots.  But as soon as the potter saw Shri Krishna, he was very happy.  The potter knew that Shri Krishna is  God.  Then the Lord said to the potter, 'Potter, today my mother is very angry with me.  Maiya is following me with a stick.  Brother, hide me somewhere. '
Then the potter hid Shri Krishna under a pot with a big pot.  In a few moments, Maiya Yashoda also came there and started asking the potter - 'O the potter!  You have seen my Kanhaiya somewhere, what?
The potter said - 'No, mother!  I did not see Kanhaiya. '  Shri Krishna was listening to all these things hidden under a big pot.  Maiya left from there.
Now Lord Shri Krishna says to the potter - 'Potter, if my mother is gone, take me out of this pitcher.'
 The potter said - 'Not like this, Lord!  First promise  me to be freed from the bondage of 84 lakh yonis. '
God smiled and said - 'Okay, I promise to free you from eighty-four million yonis.  Take me out now. '
The potter started saying - 'I am not alone, Lord!  If you promise to free all the families of my family from the bond of eighty-four million yonis, then I will drive you out of this pitcher. '
Prabhu ji says - 'Come on, I promise to release them from the bond of eighty-four million yonis.  Now get me out of the pitcher. '
Now the potter says - 'Just, Lord!  There is one more request.  Promise to complete it too, then I will drive you out of the pitcher. '
God said - 'Tell me what you want to say.'
 The potter started saying - 'Lord!  The soil under the pitcher under which you are hidden has been loaded by my oxen.  Promise to free my bulls from the bond of eighty-four.
Pleased with the love of the potter, the Lord also promised to free those bulls from the bond of the eighty-four.
 Lord said - 'Now all your wishes are fulfilled, now let me out of the pitcher.'
Then the potter says - 'Not now, God!  That is, one last wish.  Complete that too and that is this - whatever creature will listen to this dialogue between us, you will also free it from the bond of eighty-four million lives.  Just give this promise, then I will drive you out of this pitcher.
Hearing the love of the potter, Lord Krishna was very happy and promised to fulfill this wish of the potter.
Then the potter drove the child Shri Krishna out of the pitcher.  Prostrated at his feet.  Prabhu's feet washed and took Charanamrit.  Sprinkled Charanamrit in his entire hut and cried so much in the embrace of Lord that he merged with God.
Just think, the child Krishna who could lift the  mountain on his own finger, could he not lift a pitcher?
But Natwar Nand Kishore is not be happy  without love.  No matter how many Yajnas, rituals, donations, no matter how much they do devotion, Lord Krishna cannot be found unless there is love for mere beings in the mind.

Everyone knows that Shri Krishna is also called Chhaliya.  Krishna vowed that he would not take up arms in the war of Mahabharata nor directly participate in the war.  But indirectly, Krishna helped the Pandavas many times.  Know how to fulfill own promise made to the Pandavas.
Asking Barbarik for his torso: Barbarik was the son of Ghatotkacha, he pleased Maa Kamakhya and received from him the boon of three impenetrable arrows, who were able to make him victorious in all three worlds.  Shri Krishna, taking a brahmin form, asked Barbarik for his head, so that the Pandavas could win this war.
To get killed Ghatotkacha by saving Arjuna from the divine power of Karna: Krishna had instilled fear for Ghatotkacha in Duryodhana's mind. Therefore, Karna killed Ghatotkacha by unfailing power at the behest of Duryodhana. Karna had this immense power saved for Arjuna but Duryodhana, who was afraid of Ghatotkacha, asked Karna to use this power.  It was a power whose attack could never be vacated.
Getting Jarasandha slaughtered: When Jarasandha's body was rejoined even after had broken by Bheema, the body in the two parts of Jarasandha in battle, it was Sri Krishna who broke the straw and threw it in different directions.  After which Bhima ripped Jarasandha's body and threw it in opposite directions.
Get Bhishma Pitamah killed by Shikhandi: Krishna knew that Bhishma Pitamah had vowed not to attack on the woman.  So Krishna made the Pandavas aware of this subject, and the Pandavas sent Shikhandi in front of Pitamaha's chariot and killed him by Arjuna's arrows on Krishna's advice.

To get kill Jayadratha by hiding Suryadev: After Abhimanyu was killed, Arjuna vowed to kill Jayadratha before sunset the next day, otherwise promised to take Agnisamadhi.  On which Kauravas hid Jayadratha in the rear of the army. Then Krishna did sunset from his maya and the hidden Jayadratha came out to see Arjuna taking Agnisamadhi, at the same time the sun came out again by the grace of Shri Krishna and immediately Arjun trampled everyone and killed Jayadratha and dropped his head into his father lap.
Gesture to kill Duryodhana: At the time of the battle of Bhima and Duryodhana, Shri Krishna made a gesture of slapping on thigh , then Bhima did gada attack on the thigh of Duryodhana . It was only Krishna who knew that his body was like iron, except for Duryodhana's thigh.
When Krishna broke his vow in Mahabharata ...
It is say that Shri Krishna did not take any weapon  in the battle of Mahabharata.  He only accepted the idea of ​​ becoming Arjuna's charioteer and gave his advice  throughout the war, but is this really true?  Two arguments are given behind this matter.  It all starts when Duryodhana was showing anger at Bhishma Pitamah.  The reason was that not a single Pandava was dead.
Now there are also two stories about what Bhishma answered to Duryodhana.  According to the first story, Bhishma gets angry and gives 5 gold arrows to Duryodhana after reciting the mantra and says that tomorrow will be the end of the Pandavas.  On this, Duryodhana keeps arrows with him.  When Shri Krishna finds this, he sends Arjuna to Duryodhana.
It is famous in the stories that Arjun had saved Duryodhana's life and Duryodhana had promised Arjun that he could ask for anything from him.  In this, Krishna told Arjuna to ask for five gold arrows from Duryodhana.  Duryodhana gives it. Bhishma Pitamah gets angry with this and fights to kill Arjuna.  Arjun does not stand in front of Bhishma and falls.  At that time, Shri Krishna lifts the broken wheel of the chariot and proceeds to kill Bhishma, though Arjuna stops him and later Bhishma falls from the chariot and falls on the arrows, but still Krishna takes the weapon.
In the second story, the story is the same, but Bhishma promises Duryodhana that he will make Draupadi a widow by killing five Pandavas.  When Krishna comes to know about this, he asks Draupadi to touch Bhishma's feet without telling who she is. Draupadi does this and Bhishma blesses her to be always  suhaagan and live long.  When he come to know the truth, he is angry with Krishna.  At that time Krishna says that if your vow is broken because of me then my vow will be broken because of you.  And only then he lift the wheel of the chariot to save Arjun.
Krishna died due to curse ...
In the battle of Mahabharata, 100 sons of Gandhari died.  When Shri Krishna reached Gandhari, the unhappy Gandhari cursed him that in after 36 years he would be killed and with him the Yadu dynasty would be destroyed.
Shri Krishna knew that the Yadu dynasty has now come to greed and fascination.  So he just said thaastu.  The second curse was received from sage Durvasa.  Durvasa Rishi told Krishna to apply Kheer in his whole body.  Krishna did just this, leaving only his feet.  Angered by this, Durvasa cursed that Krishna would die because of his feet. Once when Shri Krishna was in the Samadhi, a hunter, Jara, considered Krishna's leg as an animal and shot an arrow at him.

16,108 queens of Krishna ..

They all know that Krishna had 16108 queens and 80 children, but why Krishna had only eight patranis(main queen)?  Actually, Rukmani, Satyabhama, Jambavati, Nagnajiti, Kalindi, Mitravrinda, Bhadra and Lakshmana were the main queens of Krishna. Krishna had 10 children from every queen.  The remaining 16100 women were rescued by Krishna from a demon Narakasura and sent to their respective homes. Someone's family did not adopt them, then Shri Krishna married them, but never made any relationship.

Why Krishna turned against his own army…
Before the war of Mahabharata, both Duryodhana and Arjuna went to Krishna for help.  When both arrived, Krishna was sleeping.  Duryodhana stood near Krishna's head and Arjuna folded his hands near his feet. When Krishna woke up, he saw Arjuna and said to support him.  Duryodhana was angry at this and said that he had come earlier and Krishna should support him.  On this, Krishna said that he has seen Arjuna before, so both will have to help.  Krishna gave his army to Duryodhana on this and became the charioteer of Arjuna.


Yogeshwar Shri Krishna has been presenting life philosophy to the public since time immemorial.  His playful childhood or the perfect ideal life, his miracles or his preaching of dharma and karma given by him to Arjuna in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.  The reflection of Shri Krishna's personality is present in every particle. Shrikrishna Nishkam Karmayogi, an ideal philosopher, situated knowledge and a great man equipped with divine wealth.  Sri Krishna was born in this land of India some 5,200 years ago (Dwaparyuga).  According to Hinduism, Lord Krishna was the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, one of the Trideva.  Sri Krishna has been ranked as the best man of the Dvaparyuga, Yugapurusha or Yugavatara.  The character of Krishna is written elaborately in the Shrimad Bhagavat and Mahabharata, composed by Maharishi Ved Vyasa, contemporary of Sri Krishna. In the present-day philosophy of Shri Krishna is as relevant as it was in Dwaparyuga.  In the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Shri Krishna has explained the dharma in detail - the person who follows the dharma, the dharma also protects it and the one who does not follow the dharma and consumes unrighteousness, dharma also does not protect it. Just as Sri Krishna explained dharma in detail in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, similarly Karma has also fully described it.  Through the Gita, Shri Krishna inspired Arjuna to do unattached karma i.e. 'karma without wishing for results. Sri Krishna was a complete yogi and also was warrior.  Each of his forms is beautiful.  His childish form is so adorable that he has become an ideal of childhood.  That is why this form of Shri Krishna is worshiped on Janmashtami, in which he steal Makhan and eat Makhan, break the gopis's matki, and also killed Asuras with fun. On the banks of the Yamuna and in the forests of the Yamuna itself, Krishna along with the cow and gopis, in the childhood, killed Pootana slaughter, Shaktasura slaughter, Yamalarjuna moksha, Kaliya Daman, Dhenuk slaughter, Pralamb slaughter, Arishta slaughter, Kalayavan slaughter etc.  Kansa was killed in his teens with older brother Baldev. In the same way, his Raslila, loving nature towards Gopis is also adorable.  Similarly, his Yogeshwar form and the guiding form of Arjuna in the Mahabharata fascinate and inspire everyone.  In his leelas he is Makhanchor, Arjuna's guru & guide, poor Sudama's best friend, Draupadi's protector, Radhaji's prince,  ending Indra's pride as became Govardhandhaari.  All his forms and all his works are his leelas.  His leelas are so multifaceted that he is called Leelapurushottam in Sanatan texts.

I have tried to write about Lord Krishna on the occasion of Janmashtami. But the more I write and tell about Krishna, the less it seems. It is so versatile that there are stories full of mythology and folklore. Krishna's life is so multicolored that no one on this earth has lived such a life like him, every story of life cannot be connected without him. As I have told before that it is impossible to write everything about him. So through this blog  I will keep writing stories related to him from time to time. Do read every article of this blog.  Must visit every label .... thanks

Mother Gandhari - a strong and constrained woman



Mother Gandhari - a strong and constrained woman

Who was Gandhari who wanted to make Duryodhana as Vajra body

Gandhari is one of the influential female characters of Mahabharata.  Gandhari was Dhritarashtra's wife and Duryodhana's mother.  Shakuni was her brother.  Let us know who Gandhari was and what power she had.

Gandhari's character is at the forefront of India's glorious women who had learned to live by ideals as well as her principle of husband's devout.  She had prevented the husband and her sons from going on unrighteousness and wrong path.  Her life is the story of a woman forced into the love of husband and son.
 One of the women mentioned in the Mahabharata story is Gandhari.  Gandhari is considered a virtuous woman and an ideal woman.  Gandhari  was the daughter of a king named Subal of the Gandhar country.  Being Gandhar country, she got his name Gandhari.  Gandhari was an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva.  After the war of Mahabharata ended, Gandhari went into the forest with her husband, Kunti and Vidur.

Was blindfolded only after getting married to Dhritarashtra

 When Gandhari was married to the blind Dhritarashtra, Gandhari also blindfolded.  Gandhari said that when my husband is blind, she has no right to see the world.  Gandhari's brother Shakuni was not happy with this marriage.  Being a devotee of Shiva, Gandhari was given the boon by Lord Shiva to become the mother of hundred sons. When Gandhari was married to blind Dhritarashtra, she too had her blindfolded.  As long as she lived, she did not remove her blindfold.  He had not even seen the face of his 100 sons.

Many ominous incident occurred on Duryodhana's birth

Gandhari named his first son Duryodhana.  It is said that when Duryodhana was born, at that time there were many ominous things.  Duryodhana started speaking as soon as he was born.  Then Vidur and the scholars asked Dhritarashtra to abandon this child.  Scholars and astrologers said that if you want to protect the Kaurava dynasty, then abandon Duryodhana, otherwise no one will be able to stop being evil.  But Duryodhana could not be abandoned in Putramoh(Affection of son's love).

Gandhari did not want the Mahabharata war

When her husband Raja Dhritarashtra agreed to Duryodhana and gave his consent to play the game of gambling, Gandhari warned Dhritarashtra that " should never take such an incurious decision by complying in the words of the moron children, the old and the wicked intellectuals."  You should not get your entire family destroyed by complying into the words of the son with affection. 
After recognizing the character of Duryodhana, she always asked Dhritarashtra to bring him on the path of dharma, calling him arrogant, sin-wise, greedy, bad companion , inconsiderate.  Even the Dushasanas were prevented from making mistakes, considering Krishna and Arjuna invincible and suggested way to compromise them.

Gandhari termed the 13-year exile given to the Pandavas as an unfair, unjust decision .  The obstinate Duryodhana never obeyed his mother Gandhari.  While going to war, she told Duryodhana how she can bless him, while the innocent Pandavas are the victims of his injustice.

Gandhari did not want the war of Mahabharata.  Before the war of Mahabharata started, when Lord Krishna went to Hastinapur as a peacekeeper for the treat0y, he proposed to give five villages to the Pandavas in front of Duryodhana, but Duryodhana rejected this proposal.  When Gandhari came to know about this, she asked Duryodhana to accept Sri Krishna's proposal.  Gandhari also told Duryodhana that it is in your welfare  to accept the things that Lord Krishna, Bhishma, Dronacharya and Vidur have told you.  But Duryodhana did not listen to the advice of Mata Gandhari and the result came in the form of war of Mahabharata.

Gandhari wanted to make Duryodhana's body like as a vajra 

It is said that in order to provide like iron-strength to his son Duryodhana, she told him to stand before her with an open body, then the light of her eyes would make his body become iron-like.  Duryodhana was in semi naked , so his half body only got iron power.
When all the Kauravas died in the war of Mahabharata, Gandhari decided to make Duryodhana as a vajra.  Gandhari had received this boon from Lord Shiva that whomever she would open her eyes and see anyone in nagnavastha(naked), thereof whole body would become of vajra.

Gandhari told Duryodhana that after bathing in the Ganges, he should appear in naked  in front of her .  But Lord Krishna knew this and on the way, Shri Krishna stopped Duryodhana and said that even after being so young, you would go in naked form to the mother.

Duryodhana got into the words of Shri Krishna and wrapped the leaves on the thigh and appeared before Gandhari.  When Gandhari opened the bandage with his eyes and saw him, her divine vision could not fall on the thigh, due to which the thighs of Duryodhana could not be of the vajra and in the end this led to the death of Duryodhana.

When Gandhari's hundred sons were killed in the fierce struggle of Mahabharata, she cried up in a sad mood that despite being the mother of hundred sons, she became sonless.  All her daughters-in-law are mourning as widows.  In the pile of dead bodies, looking at her dead sons, she looked very helpless, screaming with compassion. When Bheem, Yudhishthira, Nakula, etc. went to console Gandhari and apologize for the crime of her daughter-in-law, when forgiving, as soon as Gandhari's eyes fell on Yudhishthira's fingernails from the lower part of her eyes, his nails became black. Bhima and his brother hid in fear behind Yudhishthira. She considered as main factor the death of all her sons to Sri Krishna.  Gandhari, distraught at the sons's death, cursed Sri Krishna by saying: "If my dynasty is destroyed, then your dynasty will be destroyed and you too will be killed like an orphan."

Later Gandhari apologized to Krishna for these misdeeds.  Krishna smilingly said this: “Mother Gandhari!  This curse of yours is the law of God.  Your words will be true literally.  Please accept my greetings. "

Yudhishthira and all his brothers left no stone unturned in the service of their uncle and aunt Gandhari, but they also had to listen to the satire of being killer of sons from time to time.  For 15 years they lived in the palace with Yudhishthira.

From Yudhishthira, they asked for the permission to going to forest , which was rejected by Yudhishthira, but at the behest of Maharishi Vyasa, he ordered the exile along with Gandhari, Kunti, Vidur and Sanjay.  Going to the ashram of Maharishi Ved Vyasa in the forest, Gandhari expressed her desire to see the 100 dead sons again for the peace of mind of her husband Dhritarashtra and widow daughter-in-law. At the same time, Abhimanyu for Subhadra, and the five sons of Draupadi again show glimpse, they prayed to reduce their attachment and grief, which was completed by Ved Vyas.  In the last moments of life, Gandhari, Kunti and Dhritarashtra self sacrifice their lives.

In the history of Mahabharata, the character of Gandhari emerges not only because of her superiority in female characters, but also presents a psychological form of both good and bad feelings of the heart.  Her life is a great character saga of a forced woman trapped in the dilemma of wife and affection of sons.
