There are different forms of lord Krishna described in Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta like

  • Bal Krishna
  • Purna Purushottam
  • Ranchodrayji
  • Giridhar Gopal
  • Makhan Chor

... etc.

But I want to know that why and how lord Krishna takes the form of Shreenathaji.

Every Vaishanva follows the form of Shreenathaji with Yamunaji and Maha Prabhuji. So what is the story behind this?

    I don't think you're using the word swarupa properly. What are you trying to say? – Keshav Srinivasan Sep 6 '14 at 6:22
  • I mean to say the different forms of Lord shree krishana – yogesh suhagiya Sep 6 '14 at 6:26
  • You should change swarupa to form in the rest of your post as well. In any case, where in the Bhagavad Gita does Krishna talk about forms like Bala Krishna and so on? – Keshav Srinivasan Sep 6 '14 at 6:27

    The Srinathji idol just depicts Krishna as a child lifting up the Govardhana hill, as I discuss in this answer: hinduism.stackexchange.com/a/2950/36 Does that answer your question? – Keshav Srinivasan Sep 6 '14 at 8:11
