Deities: Bhagavat: The Krishna Avatar

The Bhagawat Purana sings of the glory of Vishnu and his incarnations. It is one of the most popular of the eighteen major puranas, and its recitations lasting for a week, called Bhagawat Saptaha, are held all over India.

The special collection of nine volumes of Amar Chitra Katha, based on the tenth chapter of the Bhagawat Purana, lovingly narrate the story of Krishna in detail. The episodes in the life of Krishna are described with vivid visuals and simple language. The Krishna of the Bhagawat Purana may at first seem contradictory. At times he is content to spend his day playing his flute. Yet he can single-handedly combat the vicious Kalia and overpower him.

In each episode of Krishna’s life, there is a deeper more esoteric meaning. For believers, the lila of Krishna is not a historical event but an eternal reality. The longing of the gopikas for Krishna, symbolizes the longing of the human soul for God.

The nine volumes that make up this issue are:

  • Krishna, the Darling of Gokul
  • Krishna, the Subduer of Kalia
  • Krishna, the Upholder of Govardhan
  • Krishna, Victory over Kamsa
  • Krishna, the Lord of Dwarka
  • Krishna, the Enchanter
  • Krishna, the Victorious
  • Krishna, An Ally of the Pandavas
  • Krishna, the Saviour
