The Case Against Lord Krishna

A nun in Warsaw, Poland, filed a case against ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness). The case came up in court.

The nun remarked that ISKCON was spreading its activities and gaining followers in Poland. She wanted ISKCON to be banned because its followers were glorifying a character called 'Krishna', "who had loose morals," having married to 16,000 women called Gopikas.

The ISKCON defendant to the Judge: "Please ask the nun to repeat the oath she took when she was ordained as a nun."

The Judge asked the nun to recite the oath loudly. She did not.

The ISKCON man asked whether he could read out the oath for the nun.

"Go ahead", said the judge.

The oath said in effect that "she (the nun) is married to Jesus Christ". The ISKCON man said, "Your Lordship! Lord Krishna is alleged to have 'married' 16,000 women only. There are more than a million nuns who assert that they are married to Jesus Christ. Between the two, Krishna and Jesus Christ, who has a loose character?"

The case was dismissed.

One common misconception everyone have is, Krishna married to 16,000 Gopikas. Actually, Krishna did not marry Gopikas. He married 16,100 queens of different kingdoms who were captured by Narakasura. After Krishna killed Narakasura, the queens said, since, they were captured by Narakasura, and no one would marry them now, they asked Krishna to marry them. And, Krishna married all of them. Another misconception that people have is, Satyabhama killed Narakasura. It is not correct. Satyabhama helped Krishna, and she even fought with Narakasura for some time. But, at the end Krishna himself killed Narakasura.

  3. Mr. Satish , What I heard about the 16,000 wifes of LORD KRISHNA is that they were Infact The Vanaras( The Monkey army ) in Ramayan . After Defeating Ravan , when RAM HUGS HANUMAN the other monkey's also want to HUG Him, so RAM promises them that their wishes will be fuilfilled in Krishna Avtar , hence they were born as GOPIKAS who marrier Krishna. simillar to the way he fought with JAMBAVAN in Krishna Avtar to FULFILL RAM'S PROMISE . Also NARKASURA had a boon that he will be killed by his mother so BHOMATA Took the AVTAR of Satyabhama and Killed Narkasura, So It is Satyabhama and not Krishna who killed satyabhama

  4. Bhagavatham 10th Canto, 59th Chapter, Verse 21.

    Next took Bhauma (Narakasura), frustrated in his endeavors, up his trident to kill Krishna, but before he could even release it, cut the Lord with the razor-sharp edge of His chakra off the head of Bhaum√Ęsura as he was sitting on his elephant.

    Narakasura was killed by Krishna only, and his mother helped him in killing.

    ----

    Gopikas did not marry Krishna. Gopikas were in Brindavan. Krishna married the queens of different Kingdoms, who were captured by Narakasura.

    I am not aware of the history of 16,100 wives. But, Gopikas were great sages in their previous life.

  7. Indian culture is different, the richest in the globe this culture is established by lord Rama .)
    Sanathan Dharam start from Ramayana culture according to evolution when ape( Hanuman) totally evolved to human form in the stone age period there was no guide & culture present for human of those time.. they eat whatever they see in nature like animal ,no family value, no respect for elder , sex with anybody ,for example Rama own father had 4 marriges ,,To establish culture for human society Vishnu appeared in the form of Purusutham Sri Rama)
    Ramayana culture :-

    1) Ram & Sita..both man & women shld have 1 marriage in their life ..Thr shld not b extra material affairs both should be loyal to each other till the end

    2) ..Ram &Laxman the love & respect betwn 2 brothr ,.the small one should? respect big brother ....

    3).Laxman &? sita ,sister in law (bhabhi) should b given equal status as mother

    4) Ram & hanuman ,the relation of friendship between ram & ancestor hanuman (A friend in need is a friend indeed).
    5)Value of mother :- ,bcoz of rama step mother wish ,that her own son Bharat shld rule the kingdom ,Rama sacrificed his whole kingdom & went to forest (vanvas)for 18yrs,with his wife & brother to fulfill his mother dream..(mother come first then god ) god created pain but mother experience all the pain for 9 month till we grow up.


    6).Ram & Ravana ,fight between al mighty & demon ,god win over evil.(Human should fight only when its come for family ).
    7) whatever we c in nature ,we shld respect them like animal & tree)It's not worship its symbol of protecting the environment .
