Krishna / The Flood Featuring Krishna - Black Is Black / I Believe mp3 album
So then why is Krishna black? The irony is that the most powerful, massive, energetic and luminous objects in the universe ARE black and supremely attractive. To find out what and who I’m talking about, you have to journey to the center of the milky way galaxy. That is why when krishna asks to mother Yashoda that why he is black,we hear her telling that it is because he was born in night means in dark means his birth’s truth is hidden. There is one more story which makes more sense than the upper one and that is of Krishna and Radha’s story.
Contributions to popular culture involving direct reference to the Hare Krishna mantra, or the Hare Krishna movement include the following. After coming in contact with the Hare Krishnas in 1969, some of the Beatles took an interest in the movement. This interest is reflected in songs recorded by the band and its members.
While Hare Krishna is probably best known for its chanting and promotion of vegetarianism, there is a much more complex belief system at play. They draw from the Bhagavad Gītā and the Bhagavata Purana as their sacred texts and seek to cultivate spirituality through the word of Krishna, but that's just the beginning. God Is A Person With A Physical Form. While in some religions "God" remains a faceless omnipresence, Hare Krishnas believe that their God, Krishna, is a person.
Question: "Who are the Hare Krishnas and what do they believe?". Answer: The origin of Hare Krishna, also called Gaudiya Vaishnavism or Chaitanya Vaishnavism, is promoted through the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (or ISKCON). Hare Krishna is a mystical sect of Hinduism. It is usually classified as a monotheistic form of Hinduism, since Hare Krishnas believe that all deities are simply various manifestations of the one god, Vishnu or Krishna.
Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar of God Vishnu is worshiped as a supreme God in Hinduism. Lord Krishna is also described as an important figure in the Bhagavata Purana. This is another Hindu epic book that dates to the 10th century . In the text, Lord Krishna is described as the charioteer for the warrior Arjuna who had guided him morally and gave military counsel to the leader. The figure of Lord Krishna is depicted as having blue or blue-black skin. He holds a flute (bansuri) and sometimes accompanied by a cow or cowherd.
The Hare Krishna movement is a branch of Hinduism, formally known as Gaudiya Vaishnavism. Its name comes from its chant - Hare Krishna - which devotees repeat over and over. It was started in the 16th century by Sri Chaitanya of Bengal (1486-1533). The Hare Krishna understanding is that when Hindus pray to Krishna, or when members of the Abrahamic faith pray to Allah or Yahweh, we are all praying to one and the same person. In addition, the Hare Krishna movement has adapted itself to the West. For example, Swami Prabhupada provided an equal opportunity to both men and women to become priests in the worship rituals - a privilege reserved only for men in traditional Hinduism.
Somehow, an unnaturally blue Krishna was preferred over a naturally dark Krishna. Because blue is the color of the sky, of ether, of divinity,’ we were told. No one dared point out that Krishna and Shyam were both proper nouns and common nouns which referred to gods as well as the color black. We forgot to refer to traditional Patta chitras in Orissa where Krishna and Vishnu are always shown using black paint while Balarama and Shiva are always shown using white.
