Lord Vishnu of the Holy Hindu Trinity, comprising Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh, incarnated on Earth in the Dwapar Yuga as Lord Krishna. This incarnation was Lord Vishnu’s eighth, as He had announced He would reincarnate on Earth from time to time whenever there was a threat to Dharma or righteousness and when the forces of evil would seek to besiege everything.
At the time of Krishna’s birth, the kingdom of Mathura was ruled by Kamsa, a cruel and ruthless man. Kamsa was Krishna’s maternal uncle. A soothsayer had prophesied to Kamsa that a boy would slay him. Hearing this, the livid king had ordered the massacre of all infant boys across Mathura. But Lord Krishna had come to fulfil that very prophecy, and He was whisked away to live among the cowherds in a small village called Gokulam, where He was raised with utmost love and care by Yashoda and Nanda, His foster parents. Lord Krishna eventually fulfilled the prophecy and established Dharma in the land once again.
Take Delight in Balkrishna’s Mischiefs
Balkrishna, or child Krishna, is the period that Lord Krishna spent among the cowherds in childlike mischief-making and playfulness. The tales of His childhood remind us of the child within each heart and how one should enjoy life’s gifts in a childlike manner, bereft of hypocrisy, pomp, and egoism.
The Balkrishna Divine Pooja Boxes by Idolkart.com showcases Lord Krishna in all His playfulness and mischief-making demeanour, instantly endearing the viewer’s heart for the product. A heightened sense of spirituality emanates from these pooja boxes to attract respectful attention, and the mastery of their craftsmanship further adds a sense of awe. The 24-carat gold plating that has been delicately layered on Balkrishna serves to add to the divine splendour radiating from these pocket temples.
Balkrishna appears to be crawling as an infant would, holding a laddoo in his right hand. Such a depiction of Balkrishna is called “Laddoo Gopal”, exuding nothing but pure innocence and joyfulness. An idol or image of Laddoo Gopal brings home happiness, prosperity, and good luck.
Let’s take the opportunity to enjoy one of Balkrishna’s most popular stories indicating His divinity. Once, His playmates accused child Krishna of eating mud and complained to Yashoda. However, Krishna denied ever doing so when Yashoda reprimanded Him and opened His mouth wide for the mother to check for herself. To her utter bewilderment and ecstasy, Yashoda could observe the entire Universe within Lord Krishna’s mouth! She was blessed with a cosmic vision of all matter, including space, the cardinal directions, Earth and its heavenly neighbours, the constellations, the elements, the mind, and finally herself. Again, when an infant, a demoness tried to feed Balkrishna poisoned milk, but she got killed instead. He spread the poison throughout His body, which is why Lord Krishna has blue skin. Balkrishna performed numerous miracles to the amazement of the cowherds and Gopikas, including Radha, his closest and beloved companion.

The Power of Balkrishna Divine Pooja Boxes
When placed in the northeast corner of the house, Balkrishna Divine Pooja Boxes emit positive energies. Ensure that Balkrishna is facing east to west or west to east. Do not place the pooja box facing the north-to-south position.
So, how do you ensure you continue to receive Balkrishna’s grace? The answer is simple: treat Him like a little child! Talk to Him, sing bhajans in His praise, and serve Him Sattvic food without forgetting to include the laddoo, His favourite dish.
Balkrishna is also known to be a “butter-stealer”, another of His favourite food items. Butter was available in plenty at Gokulam, and it is used as a metaphor for holy love in the path of Krishna Consciousness. Here, butter is associated with its non-quantifiable property and the fact that it was abundant at Gokulam. Balkrishna has many more acts of mischief to His credit, such as teasing the Gopikas, untethering cattle, and showing disdain for social conventions. All these acts of His are known as Krishna Leela, or divine play with humanity, through which He interacts intimately with everything around Him.
