The name Krishna evokes a number of images of the lord in our minds – the flutist who with his amorous posture trying to woo the young girls, the charioteer of Arjuna, the one who destroyed Jarasandha, the one who redeemed Kamsa and the one who gave the lessons of duty to the despondent Arjuna.Though incarnation of Krishna is more related to Kamasa but he is the symbol of devotion. In fact, Krishna is basically the king of ascetics and the image of dharma. The incarnation of Vishnu in the form of Krishna is considered to be complete in all respects.In every age/era there occurs a tussle between righteousness and evil, and it is ever continuing. The Almighty takes the human form to end this tussle and reinstate righteousness. In the Dwapara age the Lord gave His appearance in the form of Lord Krishna.
