What is the uniqueness of the Krishnavatar? Bhagawan beautifully reminds us today!
The Krishna principle revels in delight. The Rama principle is based on the concept of badhyatha (obligation). Ramayana is intended to promote the reign of Truth and Righteousness on earth. Krishna Avatar was intended to give a perennial message to the world. Krishna sought nothing for himself. He kept nothing for himself. He gave away everything to the people. He slew his maternal uncle, Kamsa, and installed on the throne Kamsa’s father, Ugrasena. He did not covet the Kingdom. He befriended the Pandavas, defeated the Kauravas and crowned Dharmaja as the emperor. He did not make Himself king. He was a king without a crown. He was the King of Kings. He had no kingdom of His own. But He ruled over the hearts of millions. It is this profound truth that is proclaimed by the Krishna-tatwa (Krishna principle). If you enquire deeply, you will find that every Avatar incarnated to convey a special message and carry out a particular mission.
