N. of a celebrated Avatar of the god viṣṇu , or sometimes identified with viṣṇu himself ([ MBh. v , 2563 ; xiv , 1589 ff. Hariv. 2359 &c ]) as distinct from his ten Avatars or incarnations (in the earlier legends he appears as a great hero and teacher [ MBh. Bhag. ] ; in the more recent he is deified , and is often represented as a young and amorous shepherd with flowing hair and a flute in his hand ; the following are a few particulars of his birth and history as related in Hariv. 3304 ff. and in the purāṇas &c : vasu-deva , who was a descendant of yadu and yayāti , had two wives , rohiṇī and devakī ; the latter had eight sons of whom the eighth was kṛṣṇa ; kaṃsa , king of mathurā and cousin of devakī , was informed by a prediction that one of these sons would kill him ; he therefore kept vasu-deva and his wife in confinement , and slew their first six children ; the seventh was balarāma who was saved by being abstracted from the womb of devakī and transferred to that of rohiṇī ; the eighth was kṛṣṇa who was born with black skin and a peculiar mark on his breast ; his father vasu-deva managed to escape from mathurā with the child , and favoured by the gods found a herdsman named nanda whose wife yaśo-dā had just been delivered of a son which vasu-deva conveyed to devakī after substituting his own in its place. nanda with his wife yaśo-dā took the infant kṛṣṇa and settled first in gokula or vraja , and afterwards in vṛndāvana , where kṛṣṇa and bala-rāma grew up together , roaming in the woods and joining in the sports of the herdsmen's sons ; kṛṣṇa as a youth contested the sovereignty of indra , and was victorious over that god , who descended from heaven to praise kṛṣṇa , and made him lord over the cattle [ Hariv. 3787 ff. ; 7456 ff. VP. ] ; kṛṣṇa is described as sporting constantly with the gopīs or shepherdesses [ Hariv. 4078 ff. ; 8301 ff. VP. Gi1t. ] of whom a thousand became his wives , though only eight are specified , rādhā being the favourite [ Hariv. 6694 ff. ; 9177 ff. VP. ] ; kṛṣṇa built and fortified a city called dvārakā in Gujarat , and thither transported the inhabitants of mathurā after killing kaṃsa ; kṛṣṇa had various wives besides the gopīs , and by rukmiṇī had a son pradyumna who is usually identified with kāma-deva ; with Jains , kṛṣṇa is one of the nine black vasu-devas ; with Buddhists he is the chief of the black demons , who are the enemies of buddha and the white demons)
