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.

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!

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.

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

The aim of the book is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

By Siddhi Jain

Delhi-based author Pritisha Borthakur is set to release her new book, 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories'. The 1,404-word children's book was put together to address a new kind of societal debacle in the family system. The author says the aim is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.

Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.

Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background

Clean and maintained hands boost confidence in daily life activities.

If you feel that clean and well-groomed hands are just an essential prerequisite for women, you might like to think twice. Men should equally pay attention to their hands because our hand houses 1,500 bacteria living on each square centimeter of its skin. You can easily assume what havoc it can create in our body because in India we have the culture of eating with our hands and spaces beneath nails can become breeding heaven for germs. Moreover, clean and maintained hands boost confidence in their daily life activities. Therefore, it's important to keep your hands clean irrespective of your gender by washing or sanitizing at regular intervals. And, to keep them groomed, you don't have to visit a salon.

Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:

* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
