Govardhana Lila is one of the most celebrated pastimes of Krishna. This Govardhana Lila Quiz has been designed so that you can assess your knowledge about this wonderful pastime.
Krishna performed many pastimes in this world. These pastimes are called as lilas. Through these pastimes Krishna is showing the glimpse of the spiritual world. There is variegatedness in the kingdom of Krishna. Every moment there is celebration because every moment Krishna performs different pastimes.
Vrajvasis know no one but Krishna. And Krishna is always there for them.
So, when Indra, the king of heaven, wanted to punish Vrajvasis then they were in great agony. They immediately approached Krishna. Because Krishna was their centre of life. Krishna was their best friend, best well wisher and the ultimate saviour.
Krishna lifted the Govardhan Hill effortlessly and the entire residents of Vrajvasis took shelter under the Govardhan Hill.
Although Indra wanted to submerge Vrindavan, he wanted to destroy Vrindavan, he wanted to inflict great pain upon the Vrajvasis but he failed.
Instead of experiencing pain the residents of the glorious land of Vrindavan were experiencing ultimate joy.
Vrajvasis always wanted to be with Krishna. And under the Govardhana Hill which Krishna was holding like an umbrella the Vrajvasis were experiencing unlimited joy. Their dream had come true. They were with Krishna and Krishna was with them.
In our life too if in difficulty we seek shelter of Krishna then the difficulty will become an opportunity to come closer to Krishna. And if Krishna comes in our life then all our sufferings will disappear just as darkness disappears when the sun rises.
