Was Krsna ever wrong? Can you give examples? I have not tried anything else to solve my problem. Why is that a problem? I am here to solve my problem. That is my question and I don’t have anything else to add to my question.

Was Krishna even a real human, or just a deva in the human form?

    Krsna is beyond right and wrong. If you mean about his acts in avatar, then they all were right. Where there is Krsna, there is Dharma.

  • What do you mean by "wrong" here? Does it mean adharma?

  • @LSSJBroly what does "beyond" even mean? others cannot judge his action? whether of the present time or his own time? and if one did judge him, would they automatically be wrong to judge Krnsa's action? i never understood that beyond business...

  • i vaguely recall a story where some person (a woman) puts a curse on Krsna condemning his whole village to death. the cause for this curse can be thought in layman's terms to be the fruit of wrong behavior or wrong action.

    Here 'Beyond' means he is beyond the cycle of Karma. He is not captured in the noose of karma like us. But he chooses to bear the fruits of karma, whether good or bad, because he follows Dharma and tries to establish Dharma, like, for example he accepted Gandhari's curse.

No. There are no such examples because Krishna being the Supreme Self is always right.

As per scriptures, where Krishna is there, that side undoubtedly is Dharma and righteousness (cf. Bhagvad Geeta - BG 18.78).

As says the Mahabharata -

Verse 13.153.39b

यतः कृष्णस्ततो धर्मो यतो धर्मस्ततो जयः ॥ ३९.ख ॥

  • Where Krishna is there, know that Dharma is verily there, and in Dharma lies Victory.


Swami Sivananda of the Divine Life Society, in his book - LORD KRISHNA, HIS LILAS AND TEACHINGS says -

Introduction: Lord Krishna – The Supreme Lord

Though Lord Krishna appeared in human form, He had an Aprakritika, divine body. He did not take any birth. He did not die. He appeared and disappeared through His Yoga Maya. This is a secret, known only to His devotees, Yogis and sages.

So yes, Krishna was just playing the leela pasttime of being a human, for he was the god himself in human disguise.

One of the basic difference between an incarnation (avatâra) birth or manifestation, and a normal human's birth is, that while a human jeeva birth is not under the jeeva's control, governed by laws of Karma and causality.

On the other hand, an incarnation like Krishna or Sri Rama manifests out of their own volition (sankalpa-shakti).

AND, thus Krishna is never wrong, for he's the God himself born to establish Dharma (cf. BG 4.7-8).
