“Lord Krishna”, What comes to your mind upon hearing this?
Do you feel a positive energy running through your veins? or Do you feel a sense of responsibility towards your life that Lord Krishna gave you? or Do you feel in love with this name?
I know everyone would answer this question differently. Everyone must have their own perspectives. But, my answer would be a little different. When I hear this name, “Lord Krishna”, I see the whole world revolving in front of my eyes. I feel a strong energy running in my body and mind that motivates me to just get up and do whatever I am lagging behind in. I feel a compassion within myself. I feel all the flowers of this world are falling upon me. I feel my whole world revolving around me.
So, my answer must be enough to give you an idea about Lord Krishna’s importance in my life, about how much Lord Krishna means to me.
Let me tell you when this feeling started taking its form. 2014 was the worst year of my life. That was the time when my family faced a hell lot of struggles and also we had to shift from Kolkata to Jaipur. Leaving my hometown was a complete heartbreak. Everything felt bad at that time. That was the time when everyone seemed an enemy to me. I spoke to no one, I was always in my room crying over the things I left behind in Kolkata. Then, something happened, which changed my entire life, which led me to become a better person. And that something became my everything. We brought Little Krishna to our home. Trust me, that was the best decision that my family took.
Lord Krishna is the greatest of all lords. He is the eight incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He is the Lord of Compassion, Love, Tenderness and Protection. He is worshipped in many forms but the most loved form of him is “Little Krishna”. The incarnation of Little Krishna is so beautiful and pleasing. He is depicted as having a blue body, holding a flute in his hand , having beautiful eyes and a beautiful smile. Once you fill his image in your heart, nothing else seems more pleasing and beautiful to you heart. When you start worshipping Lord Krishna, your heart is freed from false ego and you realise your true self. All the tales of Lord Krishna is filled with fun, naughtiness, love and knowledge. He is also known by many other names, namely ‘ Govind, Murlidhar, Vasudev, Mukunda’.
The presence of Little Krishna at our home and in my life has given me a new path to move forward. He has enlightened my life, has given me confidence, has given me strength to fight all worldly evils. After coming close to Little Krishna, my heart and life never feels empty. He is my best friend, to whom I can reach out at any point of time. Whenever I feel low, I am surrounded by problems, nothing seems fine, I reach out to Little Krishna. I pour my heart out to him and I always find solutions to my problems there. He is my place of peace. He made me an empathetic person and a more kind and loving person. My heart is filled with generosity after Lord Krishna’s presence in my life.
Worshipping and serving Little Krishna has taught me the importance of being a kind and humble person. I learnt how having a kind attitude, humble nature, sweet words and a loving heart, can help you win hearts. One can make a special place in someone’s life just by having these things within himself/herself. Little Krishna taught me to be an honest and ethical person because that is what leads you to the path of success and helps you build a good character. It helps one to gain integrity and a strong determination to pursue his/her life goals.
In this materialistic world, where we are surrounded by dishonesty, corruption, competition, ego, take some time out to worship Lord Krishna. That would take you away from all the materialistic sorrow, that would give your heart a sense of liberty and happiness.Concluding my feelings, I would say that Lord Krishna is ‘The love and happiness of my life’.
