Lord Krishna is one of the most popular Gods in Hinduism. In the mythological story, Krishna did not know who his real parents were. We know Krishna is also the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. If he is almighty Lord Vishnu, why was he in a confusion about his parents?

    Haven't heard of any story in which he was in confusion! – Amrit Dhara Oct 28 '18 at 7:51
  • Your question contains wrong information. Krishna knew who his parents were. – Wikash_ Jul 3 at 6:29

He is never in illusion or confusion. Only uninformed think otherwise. Following statements from Bhagavata purana prove my point.

In relation to slaying of Salva demon, some sages thought Krishna was actually illusioned. Then following three verses refutes such conception.

SB 10.77.30: Such is the account given by some sages, O wise King, but those who speak in this illogical way are contradicting themselves, having forgotten their own previous statements

Further these verses are spoken:

SB 10.77.31: How can lamentation, bewilderment, material affection or fear, all born out of ignorance, be ascribed to the infinite Supreme Lord, whose perception, knowledge and power are all similarly infinite?

SB 10.77.32: By virtue of self-realization fortified by service rendered to His feet, devotees of the Lord dispel the bodily concept of life, which has bewildered the soul since time immemorial. Thus they attain eternal glory in His personal association. How, then, can that Supreme Truth, the destination of all genuine saints, be subject to illusion?

    This doesn't answer the question. The question is about whether Krishna knew who his biological parents were without being told about them. It's not about 'slaying of Salva demon'. – sv. Oct 30 '18 at 18:54
  • @sv. The Salva demon story concludes with generic verses which apply to Lord Krishna. So, yes he is never bewildered about his identity or his parents. Where he apparently appears to be bewildered is no more than lila for exchanging and expanding loving relations with devotees. – user16618 Oct 30 '18 at 19:05
