Krishna is the supreme godhead who guides individuals struggling with their lives and seeking goodness! NewsGram

Lord Krishna is the supreme deity in Hinduism. There is not just one, but many facets of Krishna that distinguishes his persona! During his incarnation, he gave many life lessons for the benefit of Humankind.

This is the famous verse from Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 4, (Verse 7-8),


यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भव- ति भारत ।
अभ्युत्थान- मधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम्- ॥४-७॥
परित्राणाय- साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम्- ।
धर्मसंस्था- पनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे ॥४-८॥
“Yada yada hi dharmasya glanirbhavati bharata
Abhyuthanam-adharmasya tadatmanam srijamyaham”
Paritranaya sadhunam vinashay cha dushkritam
Dharmasansthapanart-haya sambhavami yuge yuge”
Meaning: In this verse, Krishna says that whenever Adharma (Evil) overpowers Dharma (Good), then he body himself at the forefront. For the utmost protection of the good, for the absolute destruction of the evil and wicked, and for the re-establishment of the Dharma, he will come into being age after age…

Krishna is the supreme godhead who guides individuals struggling with their lives and seeking goodness! so now, let us reflect on his embodiment to learn some amazing lessons he urges us to follow to unleash the best out of ourselves!

Following are the Top 5 Lessons Lord Krishna gave through his incarnation:

1. Always Value The Love of Your Parents


Krishna is known by the names like “Nand Laal” (Son of Baba Nand), “Yashoda Nandan” (Son of Maa Yashoda), “Devaki Nandan” (Son of Maa Devaki). He teaches that the love of the parents must always be cherished and respected. NewsGram

Krishna was originally born to Maa Devaki and Vasudev, but then during his infancy, he was immediately carted off to Gokul to be saved from his evil-minded maternal uncle Kansa. There, Maa Yashoda and Nand Baba raised him! Krishna has always shown love towards both, his birth parents and those who raised him. There are numerous tales of love, fun, and laughter of Krishna with Maa Yashoda where Krishna teases her with love and in-return received her love in abundance. Later, when he reached adulthood and came across the truth about his birth parents, he liberated them from the clutches of evil Kansa by defeating him and relieved both of them of their misery.

He teaches that the love of the parents must always be cherished and respected.

2. Always Be a True and Generous Friend


Krishna’s best friend Sudama was poor and had no money, but when he visited him at his Kingdom for demanding help, Krishna welcomed him with heartfelt generosity, and his eyes got filled with tears of joy! He himself cleaned Sudama’s feet. NewsGram

Tales of the friendship of Krishna and Sudama are in a literal sense what we call “Friendship-Goals”. in a world where everyone tries to downcast each other by devaluing friendships and relationships, none other than Krishna can better teach that how the friendships are valued!

Krishna’s best friend Sudama was poor and had no money, but when he visited him at his Kingdom for demanding help, Krishna welcomed him with heartfelt generosity, and his eyes got filled with tears of joy! He himself cleaned Sudama’s feet and joyfully accepted rice as the gift Sudama bought for him because the poor man had nothing to offer to his best friend, Krishna!

Lord Krishna understood Sudama’s extremities without even Sudama uttering a single word, and to a surprise when Sudama reached back home, he got astonished to see his home transformed into gold with all precious wealth!

Of course, yes, Krishna doesn’t say to gift your friends materialistic wealth as he did, rather he teaches that never downcast/betray them whenever they need you!

3. Always Render Pure Love and Start Loving
“Unconditionally”


Krishna always showed that one must love purely, giving all to the person you love with an open heart. He has always been loving Radharani eternally and so, he refused to get anyone in place of her in his life! NewsGram

The stories of the immortal love of Radharani and Krishna are ever-known! Though they were always in their sterling love, they still were never destined to meet. But today, Krishna is never worshipped without Radharani!

Krishna always showed that one must love purely, giving all to the person you love with an open heart. He has always been loving Radharani eternally and so, he refused to get anyone in place of her in his life! For him, Radharani has always been irreplaceable and will be. Krishna will forever be incomplete without Radharani.

4. Always Follow Your Passion and Never Give Up on it


Krishna always had many roles to play, but he never left his passion to play his flute! He never let his other commitments come in the pursuit of his love of music. NewsGram

Lord Krishna has always been fond of music and even in most of his images and idols, you’ll see a flute in his hand, it is because he loved to play his flute because of which everyone around him got mesmerized!

5. Always Keep Smiling and Never Forget To Be Humble With Those Around You

Diwali is known for gifting and jewellery tops the list, with the focus on buying gold and diamonds.

Diwali is known for gifting and jewellery tops the list, with the focus on buying gold and diamonds. ORRA jewellery, a trusted diamond jewellery brand is gearing up for the festive and bridal season. As they open their 50th store in the country, IANSlife caught up with Dipu Mehta, Managing Director, ORRA, to find out how the company plans to ramp up its now 50 company-owned and operated stores, expanding its retail presence in Tier-1 and 2 cities and target the millennial segment.

Read Excerpts:

Q: The brand is expanding in tier-2 and tier-3 cities, is brick and mortar the way forward to create a presence in this segment?

A: ORRA currently is expanding in metros plus tier-2 cities. But we aren't opening stores in any new markets. We are only opening in markets where we are already present. We are increasing the number of stores within cities as the demand for jewellery buying has also increased. Currently, we are present in 25 cities with 50 stores, and by the end of the month, we would be launching another seven stores.
Also with a category like jewellery, it is important to have brick and mortar stores as the customers like to see and hold higher value jewellery before purchasing. Jewellery buying is an important decision to the customers and having a store gives them that assurance.

Sports betting has become increasingly popular among the youth in recent times

Sports betting has been around for centuries for the audience to not only watch the sport but to get more deeply involved in the match. It is a fun and often profitable activity for the viewer to win some extra fortune or simply get some extra sweat while watching the game. At first glance, sports betting may look like it's pure luck, but when you indulge deeper into the activity you realize it is more of a calculative and research activity than just pure luck. We must note that yes, luck does play a certain role to some extend but a win is not completely dependent on luck, if you're putting your bets on a certain team you have to make sure to do some research about the players on the team, history of wins and losses of the team and compare the probability of winning and then place bets.

Even though sports betting has existed since the ancient era, it was not until recently that it became increasingly popular among the youth. This happened due to the legalization of the activity and the rise of online sports betting. The technological revolution has expanded the sports betting industry, offering the bettors new markets and ways to bet. The only major difference between online bookmarkers and traditional brick-and-mortar venues of sports betting is that now you can place bets online from your mobile devices, laptops, computers etc.
