KRISHNA HAD HIS REASONS FOR DOING IT

David Fenster

 
[Happy Belated Birthday Krishna!]

In telling the story of Krishna one day, Baba described how playful Krishna used to steal cream and butter from his neighbors. Said Baba: "Krishna had his reasons for doing it. The people weren't giving him cream, so he stole and ate it. His actions were for their own good. They benefited enormously. This was the gift he gave them."

Baba explained that people depict Krishna as having blue skin, not only because Krishna was dark-skinned but also, primarily, to graphically differentiate him from ordinary mortals.
