Lord KrishnaLord Krishna is the the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The name "Krishna" means "The All attractive one". He appeared on this earth about 5,000 years ago. He stayed on this earth for 125 years and played exactly like a human being, but His activities were unparalleled. He appeared as the son of Vasudeva and Devaki, but soon had to be moved to Mathura due to the atrocities of Kamsa. Lord Krishna was brought up as the son of Nanda Maharaja  and Yasoda. In Vraja, He enjoyed many pastimes, such as that of stealing butter, Killing demons, Damodara lila, Uplifting the Govardhana Hill, performing the Rasa dance and the list continues. Krishna's appearance and activities on earth are the main subject of the Srimad Bhagavatam. The Vedas say Krishna is the original person, but that He always appears young and attractive. He knows everything, He contains all of reality, and all other living beings are His inseparable parts. He is the all-powerful, supreme controller of all energies. He is known by different names in different cultures (such as God, Allah, and Jehovah, for example).

Krishna and The Vedas

Lord Krishna on Krishna and The Vedas

I am seated in everyone’s heart and from Me come remembrance, knowledge and forgetfulness. By all the Vedas, I am to be known. Indeed, I am the compiler of Vedanta and I am the knower of the Vedas.
Bhagavad-Gita 15.15,
Srila Prabhupada

Non-Permanent appearance of Happiness And Distress

Lord Krishna on Non-Permanent appearance of Happiness And Distress

O son of Kunti, the nonpermanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed.
Bhagavad Gita 2.14,
Srila Prabhupada

Offerings

I regard as great even the smallest gift offered by My devotees in pure love, but even great offerings presented by nondevotees do not please Me

Achievements of His Devotees

Everything that can be achieved by fruitive activities, penance, knowledge, detachment, mystic yoga, charity, religious duties and all other means of perfecting life is easily achieved by My devotee through loving service unto Me. If somehow or other My devotee desires promotion to heaven, liberation, or residence in My abode, he easily achieves such benedictions.

Surrender

The six divisions of surrender are the acceptance of those things favourable to devotional service, the rejection of unfavourable things, the conviction that Krishna will give protection, the acceptance of the Lord as one’s guardian or master, full self-surrender and humility.
