In Vrndavana the effulgent ground is fashioned with many very wonderful colourful cintamani jewels, the trees and vines are full of blissful spiritual fruits and flowers, the birds make a great tumult by reciting the hymns of the Sama Veda, and the lakes and streams are filled with transcendental nectar. Radha and Krsna stay in the place where They enjoy pastimes. How beautiful They are. Their bodies are decorated with jewel ornaments, and They are wealthy with many gem mines of intelligence and wit.
Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He is the son of Vasudeva and Devaki. Krishna appears on earth once in a day of Lord Brahma or once every 4,320,000,000 years. He is the source of Lord Vishnu, who is the source of all other incarnations of God. His complexion is blackish, like the color of a new rain cloud. He stands in a three-fold bending form, dancing and playing on His flute. On the altar many times He will be with His consort, Radha.
Krishna was born of Vasudeva and Devaki while they were in prison in Mathura. They were imprisoned because their eighth son (Krishna) was destined to kill King Kamsa. Because the evil King Kamsa wanted to kill Krishna, He was transferred to Gokula to be looked after by His foster parents Nanda and Yasoda.
Krishna killed many demons sent by King Kamsa to kill him, such as Putana, Trinavarta, Aghasura, Aristasura and Kesi. He also had many pastimes with the cowherd boys, cows, and gopis (the cowherd girls).
