Where did Krishna come from?

Some believe that Krishna is a god who has always been.

But there is also a Hindu belief that he was born on Earth at a particular time and place in order to fulfill a special mission.

His story is connected to the story of the Pandavas, who are five brothers who are the heroes of the Mahabharata.

The Pandavas were born to a king and queen who were cursed to remain childless until a certain time came to pass.

When the time came and they were able to have children, the queen prayed for a son.

She was granted her wish by Krishna himself.

Moreover, Krishna also appeared to the Pandavas during various other times in their lives to give them instructions, advice, and guidance.

And, He reappeared to them when they were in their final years when they were going to pass on.

What is Krishna’s mission?

Krishna’s mission was 2-fold:

  • Bestow the gift of Divine love on humankind
  • Reestablish the ancient Hindu civilization

He wanted to reestablish the ancient Hindu civilization because the people at that time were riddled with avarice and greed.
