Lord Krishna was cursed by Gandhari that he would be killed by the arrow of a petty hunter in the forest. As if to fulfill this destiny, Lord Krishna went to Prabhasa forest and rested under a tree awaiting his death. A hunter mistaking his feet for a deer shot an arrow that brought an end to his life on earth. What a life Krishna had lead - so eventful, so utterly in selfless service of the mankind, an epitome of leadership. Perhaps no one has the kind of impact Lord Krishna has on the Indian society over the ages. Thousands of years later, we still worship him, build more temples for him, sing songs about him, give our children one of his many names, read his Geeta and try to emulate his teachings in our lives. Inspiration for this poem - Krishna Mukti - came from an animated video entitled Demise of Krishna" made by Garima Saxena. Please read the poem but you must also watch the amazing short 2 minutes video complete with lovely background flute by Haripradas Chaurasiya by clicking at - Demise of Krishna. The video file is 25MB and may take some time to download. The illustrations by Garima has been taken from her video - Rajiv K. Saxena
