Birth and Childhood

Bhagavatha is a biography of Lord Krishna written by Maharshi Veda Vyasa in Sanskrit verses in the beginning of Kali Yuga or this era. The purpose of birth of Lord Krishna was to reestablish Dharma in India.  It is a social principle which is a natural style of life for Indians as desired by God. In due course of time, human beings themselves get deviated away from this style of life, Dharma. Human being is provided with great freedom of thought by God and one can decide his own style of life by deviating from Dharma, it is permitted. Other people should not be hurt by the new style of life of that man, which means only a tolerable style is permitted by God. Sin is accumulated in a man’s life account if one deviates away from the tolerable way of Dharma. When most of the people, including the ruler of the land, become intolerable to the citizens following Dharma, then God himself takes birth and this happened in the case of Krishna. Therefore he is Lord Krishna.
