Lord Krishna

The fourth deity that we worship is Lord Krishna.

Lord Krishna, also known as Kanhaiya, Kanha or Mayan-Tirmal, came on Earth during the age of Dwapar Yuga. He is the eight avatar of Lord Vishnu. Mayan-Tirmal personifies love and joy and is said to be the “cause of all causes.” He destroys all sins and pain from His devotees.

Abhimanyu, who was a devotee of Mother Kali, attempted to slay Lord Krishna for spending too much time with his wife, Radha. However, when he arrived to slay the Lord he could not believe his eyes; it was Mother Kali. He realized that both Mother Kali and Lord Krishna are one. Thus He who is the supreme is also power (Shakti).
