Synopsis

Krishna and Hinduism by Kerena Marchant

Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world. No single person founded it. But over the centuries many religious thinkers developed the Hindu way of life. Hindus believe that Krishna is the Supreme Being, who lived on earth as a man to save people from evil. This book tells you all about Krishna, who he was, how he grew up and what he did. It explains his teaching, how it is written down in Hindu sacred texts, and how Hindus worship Krishna as a god of love. Four stories retell key moments in his life: from his birth to his childhood antics, his marriage, his reign as a prince and his achievements, to finally how he died. There is also information on Krishna and food, places that are sacred to him, festivals, and how his influence on Hinduism has lasted to the present day.
