The Sadness of Devaki

Submitted by afrocentric on Fri, 02/09/2016 - 15:20

Devaki with her husband Vasudeva and their charioteer. Devaki the mother of Krishna. Yes God's own mother, the Mother of God Himself. Devaki who had six of her children murdered by her evil brother Kamsa.When you study the charioteer, look at his jewellery, his gold cloth, and the gold jewelled crown he wears it is obvious that the charioteer is Krishna himself. Remember his role as the charioteer to Arjuna? “Know that the Self is the rider, and the body the chariot; that the intellect is the charioteer, and the mind the reins” (Katha Upanishad 1:3:3)
