Insightful newsletter of Drishtikone - Issue #56: Krishna left Radha when he was 10!

Insightful newsletter of Drishtikone

Very few ever walked this planet in a manner that He did. He lived every aspect of life and divine consciousness to the fullest. Not as a theory but in practice.

That is why it is a collective shame that someone like Krishna has been abused by minds who are shallow and only given to physical urges.

The author of the newsletter is not well, so this will not be a complete regular edition, but this was one topic that needs addressing. Hence this abridged newsletter for you to read, contemplate and share.

Nothing in spiritual and religious history has been so distorted and abused as the life of Sri Krishna – who has been known as the complete human being within the Dharmic history. Unfortunately, the problem for most Hindus is that they themselves understand their own spiritual history from the drawings and minds of third-rate calendar artists! The calendar artists have regularly and always shown Radha-Krishna as adults. And almost every artist in modern times, has taken ample artistic license to depict the whole relationship as per their convenience and feeling.

In a recent Netflix movie, titled Bulbul - Radha and Krishna have been abused yet again

But a movie is not the only thing that has abused Radha and Krishna. Even the Honorable Supreme Court of India, in its judgment on “Live-in” relationships, inappropriately used the same Radha-Krishna reference!

Krishna was 10 and some when he left Radha

The reality is that the story of Radha and Krishna comes from the Hindu scripture Srimad Bhagavatam. So, to understand the type of relationship, one needs to go to the same source to understand how they were related.

When Krishna left Vrindavan for Mathura, he was less than 10 years and some change. Less than 11 years.

Let us go to Srimad Bhagavatam for the references.

Srimad Bhagavatam and Krishna's age

Uddhava says the following at the time when Krishna kills Kamsa. Basically he is stating that Krishna was 11 years old when he killed Kamsa. Krishna killed Kamsa on the Shivaratri day after his 10th birthday.

vasudevasya devakyāḿ

jāto bhojendra-bandhane

cikīrṣur bhagavān asyāḥ

śam ajenābhiyācitaḥ


Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa, being prayed to by Brahmā to bring welfare to the earth, was begotten by Vasudeva in the womb of his wife Devakī in the prison of the King of Bhoja.

tato nanda-vrajam itaḥ

pitrā kaḿsād vibibhyatā

ekādaśa samās tatra

gūḍhārciḥ sa-balo ‘vasat


Thereafter, His father, being afraid of Kaḿsa, brought Him to the cow pastures of Mahārāja Nanda, and there He lived for eleven years like a covered flame with His elder brother, Baladeva.

Also people in Mathura are discussing about both Balaram and Krishna and describing them:

kva vajra-sāra-sarvāṅgau

mallau śailendra-sannibhau

kva cāti-sukumārāṅgau

kiśorau nāpta-yauvanau


What comparison can there be between these two professional wrestlers, with limbs as strong as lightning bolts and bodies resembling mighty mountains, and these two young, immature boys with exceedingly tender limbs?

abuse showcases the moral compass of the abuser

Krishna was a little over 10 years old when he left Vrindavan, his flute, and Radha. Never to see them back again.

A 10 year old kid, who lived in a small village over 7000 years ago (Source). What could he have done?

All the abusive references, poems and literature is nothing but a giant historical showcase of the sick mindset of the writers themselves. Whether it was calendar artist or celebrated poets - they betrayed their own sexual frustrations by juxtaposing their own sexual fantasies on someone, like whom, no one ever walked this planet!
