"Ay, but that man had right and reason, for Krishna himself appeared in a vision promising him Paradise"

Krishna is one of the most powerful and popular of the ten incarnations of Vishnu, the Preserver or Sustainer of life in the Hindu Trinity of deities. The word Krishna translates as ‘black’, and Krishna’s dark complexion is thought to connote his mystical and mysterious nature. 

Krishna is often depicted as an infant; a handsome young man playing a flute, as in the Bhagavata Purana; or a warrior-prince and military advisor as in the Mahabharata
