The Radha-Krishna amour is a love legend of all times. It’s indeed hard to miss the many legends and paintings illustrating Krishna’s love affairs, of which the Radha-Krishna affair is the most memorable. Krishna’s relationship with Radha, his favorite among the ‘gopis’ (cow-herding maidens), has served as a model for male and female love in a variety of art forms, and since the sixteenth century appears prominently as a motif in North Indian paintings. The allegorical love of Radha has found expression in some great Bengali poetical works of Govinda Das, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, andJayadeva the author of Geet Govinda.
Krishna killed many demons sent by King Kamsa to kill him, such as Putana, Trinavarta, Aghasura, Aristasura and Kesi. He also had many pastimes with the cowherd boys, cows, and gopis (the cowherd girls).
He then went to Mathura to kill King Kamsa. He stayed in Mathura until He was 28. At the age of 28 He moved to Dwarka. In Dwarka He married 16,108 wives. He became the charioteer of Arjuna at the battle of Kurukshetra.
Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He is the son of Vasudeva and Devaki. Krishna appears on earth once in a day of Lord Brahma or once every 4,320,000,000 years. He is the source of Lord Vishnu, who is the source of all other incarnations of God.
His complexion is blackish, like the color of a new rain cloud. He stands in a three-fold bending form, dancing and playing on His flute. On the altar many times He will be with His consort, Radha. In paintings, He will be seen dancing with the cowherd girls (gopis), playing with the cowherd boys, or as Arjuna’s charioteer on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.
He killed the evil king Kamsa and many other demons to protect His devotees. He is the speaker of the Bhagavad-gita.
Krishna face is decorated with ornaments, such as earrings resembling sharks. Krishna’s ears are beautiful, His cheeks brilliant and Krishna’s smiling is attractive to everyone to see.” (Srimad Bhagavatam 9.24.65)
