Remarks
Just the thought of the grand scale of creation is beyond the bounds of the human mind, but little Krishna seems to have no difficulty grasping that colossal idea. He is seen floating on a Banyan leaf, sucking on his toe. Although young, Krishna is as dynamic as any other child is. The bright halo around him depicts his magnificence and glory. Known as the Vatapatrashayi, he is oblivious to the constant melting and reemerging of multiple galaxies in this eternal universe.

Krishna is a major deity or god in Hinduism. He is worshipped as the eighth avatar of the god Vishnu and also as the supreme God in his own right. He is the god of compassion, tenderness and love in Hinduism, and is one of the most popular and widely revered among Indian divinities. Krishna's birthday is celebrated every year by Hindus on Krishna Janmashtami. Krishna is usually depicted with a flute in his hand.
The anecdotes and narratives of Krishna's life are generally titled as Krishna Leela. He is a central character in the Mahabharata, the Bhagavata Purana and the Bhagavad Gita, and is mentioned in many Hindu philosophical, theological, and mythological texts. They portray him in various perspectives: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, and as the universal supreme being. His iconography reflects these legends, and shows him in different stages of his life, such as an infant eating butter, a young boy playing a flute, a young boy with Radha or surrounded by women devotees, or a friendly charioteer giving counsel to Arjuna.
