Can you explain the concept of married couples performing penance for 1000 years?
In beginning of Shri Krishna, we are shown that Deviki and Vasudeva perform penance together for 1000 years, see Lord Krishna's form.
Deviki is given the boon of being Lord Krishna's mother in three births.
Now, I am watching the story Yashoda and Nanda, how in previous life they were Dhara and Drona and performed penance for 1000 years to see Lord Krishna in child form.
