 Leelas of Shri Krishna.


Shri Krishna took birth in the prison of Kansa and as soon as he was born, the doors of the prison opened and the guards fell into a deep sleep. At the same time, there was an Akashvani that take the child to Nandarai's house in Nandgaon and bring the newborn daughter of Nandarai. This was the first indication of Shri Krishna being a great human.



When Kansa got the information about Krishna's birth.


When Kansa came to know about Krishna's birth, he sent a demon named Putana to kill Krishna. Putna stole Krishna and began to feed him milk by applying poison on her chest. Shri Krishna took away his life from the chest of Putna and the giant monstrous himself died. Those who saw this Leela of Shri Krishna were surprised because Putna had killed all the newborn children of Nandgaon, but little Krishna took Putna to Yampuri. From that time people started saying that Krishna is not a normal human being but a great human being.




Kaliya Nag and Lord Krishna 


Kansa sent Kaliya Nag to the Yamuna. Due to its poison, the water of Yamuna turned black. Animals, birds, and people started dying from drinking this water. The people of Nandgaon started thinking that now they will have to leave the village and settle somewhere else, but Shri Krishna did not accept this to happen. One day, in a sports game, Shri Krishna jumped into the river Yamuna and reached in front of Kaliya Nag. Krishna was about to kill Kaliya when the serpent girls started praying for the protection of life. Shri Krishna forgave Kaliya by asking him to go away from Nand village. Kaliya bowed his head in front of Shri Krishna and Shri Krishna stood on Kaliya's hood and started dancing in the form of Nataraja. When the people of Nand village saw this scene, they were surprised and started believing that Shri Krishna is a great human.




Torrential rain by Indra


In order to protect the animals and people of Nandgaon, when Indra made torrential rain, Shri Krishna lifted the Govardhan Mountain on his little finger and for several days, something normal continued, then Indra had to come in front of Shri Krishna to apologize. . When people saw this Leela of Shri Krishna, they were convinced that Shri Krishna is God in human form. And started worshiping Govardhan Parvat at the behest of Shri Krishna and since then the tradition of worshiping Govardhan Parvat is going on every year.




Wrestlers of Kansa


Killing Kansa by defeating the wrestlers of Kansa was not a matter for any common man. As soon as Shri Krishna killed Kansa, the cheers of Shri Krishna reverberated from all four directions.




Sri Krishna's Guru Sandeepini.


The son of Shri Krishna's guru Sandeepini had died years ago due to drowning in the ocean. At the time of giving Guru Dakshina, Shri Krishna learned the mind of the Guru and brought his son back to life. When the Guru saw his son alive, he was convinced that Shri Krishna was actually God in a human body because it is not under the control of any human or common deity to bring a dead person to life.




Draupadi at the time of chir-haran


Draupadi had meditated on Shri Krishna at the time of chir-haran and Draupadi's sari got so long that Dushasan sat down tired. In this way, Shri Krishna saved the shame of Draupadi. From this Leela of Draupadi and Shri Krishna, the entire assembly of Kauravas came to know Shri Krishna as God.



Messengers of Pandavas


When Shri Krishna reached Duryodhana as the messenger of Pandavas, Duryodhana ordered Shri Krishna to be taken, prisoner. At this time Shri Krishna surprised the whole assembly by taking his divine form. At this time Bhishma and Vidura saw Shri Krishna in the form of Vishnu.


During the Mahabharata war


Predicting the number of people who died in the war by eating groundnut every day during the Mahabharata war also tells that Shri Krishna is a human, not a human.



Was the grandest Leela of Shri Krishna


The grandest Leela of Shri Krishna was to make Arjuna realize the mystery of life and death by taking his monstrous form. The Virata form of Shri Krishna directly gives proof of his being Parabrahma Parmeshwar and after this, there is no doubt that Shri Krishna is the incarnation of Shri Vishnu in the human body.


Death of Shri Krishna


According to the Bhagavata Purana, Lord Krishna was resting under a peepal tree one day when a fowler named Jara mistook him like a deer and shot an arrow at him from a distance, which led to his death.
