Lord Krishna describes God in the Holy Gita and to majority of Hindus Lord Krishna happens to the God himself, the Supreme Being. The great exponent of the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna is one of the most powerful incarnations of Lord Vishnu, the Godhead of the Hindu Trinity of deities. One of my friend from abroad had asked me to describe Lord Krishna’s final days on the earth very briefly that I would like to share with all of you.

Bishwa Nath Singh :
After the great war that was fought in between Pandavas and Kawravas in the battle field of Kurkshetra, Lord Krishna had returned to Dwarka. In his final days on earth, he taught spiritual wisdom to Uddhava, his friend and disciple, and ascended to his abode after casting off his body, which was shot at by a hunter named Jara. He is believed to have lived for 125 years. Whether he was a human being or a God-incarnate, there is no gainsaying the fact that he has been ruling the hearts of millions for over three millennia. Krishna retired into the forest and sat under a tree in meditation. While the Mahabharata narrates the story that a hunter named Jara mistook his partly visible left foot for a deer and shot an arrow wounding him mortally; while Krishna's soul ascended to heaven, his mortal body was cremated by Arjuna.It is also said that after the Pandavas had died. Krishna was reborn. The Abhiras, the very people who destroyed Dwaraka, brought Krishna back to life by making him their god. According to Puranic sources, Krishna's disappearance marks the end of Dvapara Yuga and the start of Kali Yuga, which is dated to February 17/18, 3228 BCE. Vaishnava teachers such as Ramanujacharya and Gaudiya Vaishnavas held the view that the body of Krishna is completely spiritual and never decays as this appears to be the perspective of the Bhagavata Purana. Krishna never appears to grow old or age at all in the historical depictions of the Puranas despite passing of several decades, but there are grounds for a debate whether this indicates that he has no material body, since battles and other descriptions of the Mahabhārata epic show clear indications that he seems to be subject to the limitations of nature. While battles apparently seem to indicate limitations, Mahabharatha also shows in many places where Krishna is not subject to any limitations as through episodes Duryodhana trying to arrest Krishna where his body burst Indian as well as Western scholars have now accepted the period between 3200 and 3100 BC as the period in which Lord Krishna lived on earth. Krishna took birth at midnight on the ashtami or the 8th day of the Krishnapaksha or dark fortnight in the Hindu month of Shravan (August-September). The birthday of Krishna is called Janmashthami, a special occasion for Hindus that is celebrated around the world.Lord Krihna use to tell that He is the conscience in the heart of all creaturess Furthere, he used to narrate: "I am their beginning, their being, their end.I am the mind of the senses,I am the radiant sun among lightsI am the song in sacred lore,
I am the king of deities. I am the priest of great seers…" Lord Krishna is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.According to Pauranik literature, Lord Krishna settled and established his kingdom at Dwarka, in Jamnagar, after his migration from Mathura.Archeological excavations reveal that the present day Dwarka is the sixth city on this site, the earlier five have submerged in the sea. India has four Main Dhaams, seven Puris, one hundred eight Devi Peeths, four Shardapeeths, sixtyeight Tirth and twelve Jyotirlings.One Dham Dwarka, One Jyotirling Nageshwar and One Shardapeeth are the 3 places of International importance at Dwarka.The ancient name of Dwarka for this area was Kushsthali, then Dwarvati, then Usha mandal then Okha mandal.Lord Krishna came to here to Kushthali with his whole Yadav clan to make a new world for his clan.This pleasant sea side land, cooled the eyes of Lord Krishna, so he put the foundation of Dwarka.Let us join to pay our humble obeisance to the lotus feet of Lord Krishna and seek His bliss for well-being of all living-being of this universe!
