Krishna: the most popular avatar. He is an entirely different kind of god,appearing as such in the Bhagvat Gita. He is the darling of Hindu mithology, and is regarded by some not as an avtar but as Vishnu himself.A cult figure in his own right, his worshiper's intensity equals or surpasses that of the Vishnu or Shiva cults.Stories of his amazing childhood delight Indians. He is also the cowherd whom the gopis (young coeherdesses) adore. His body and face are blue, the colour of the endless ocean and infinite space.He is often depicted holding a flute in his hands, as cowherds do.The most commonly described episode of his childhood shows him lifting Mount Govardhana up with one finger to protect villagers from a vengeful storm unleashed by Indra, the god of the skies.
