Krishna represents material and spiritual bliss, the creation of Heaven on Earth and perfection in relationships. The union of Krishna with his sweetheart, Radha, symbolizes the perfect union between two humans and between the devotee and the Divine.
Krishna’s birthday is an opportunity to birth perfection, harmony with the Absolute and with lovers and friends, and enjoyment of the Earth plane.
