Lord Krishna is not a myth. Krishna is the name of God which means someone who has an attractive personality in the Sanskrit language. So, here is why Shri Krishna has charming qualities like strength, beauty, richness, wisdom, and sacrifice.
1. Ancient cities described in the Mahabharatha
More than thirty-five sites in North India have shown archaeological evidence and have been recognized as biblical cities described in the Mahabharatha. Copperware(s), metal, seals, gold & silver adornments, terracotta discs, and painted grey ware pottery have all been found in these sites. Scientific dating of these artifacts resembles the non-Aryan-invasion model of Indian antiquity.
2. The permanence of Dwarka city in the Arabian Sea
About 150 feet under the Arabian Sea sit these remains of the ancient city of Dwarka, carbon defining back to about 9000 years. It is one of the most talked-about maritime foundations by archaeologists in India.
“They are also considered some of the oldest ruins in the world” A dive in the Arabian Sea near existing (new) Dwarka reveals the ocean floor is covered with traces of the antiquities from old Dwarka.
From massive stones to smaller structures and hundreds of anchors- all these points to the fact that it must have been an enormous port city at one time.
3. Lineage of Shri Krishna
The Greek historian Megasthenes has stated that Chandragupta Maurya was the 138th King in the lineage of Shri Krishna.
This means that Shri Krishna did exist in the bygone era and that Mahabharat did undoubtedly happen.
4. Present cities from Mahabharata
All places discussed in The Mahabharata are recognized as real places.
For example, Hastinapur that is mentioned in the Mahabharata, is currently located in UP, Indraprastha is present-day Delhi, and Dwarka resides on the Gujarat coast. Besides, the cities present at the time of Mahabharata are not confined to present-day India because Mahabharata referred Indian subcontinent as Bharat. For example, Gandhar could be present-day’s Kandhar.
5. Similarity between Ramayana and Mahabharata
The sovereignty recorded in the Ramayan and the Mahabharat coincide without a difference. Even the relations among various kings and their dynasties in both the great “sagas” match each other. If both were mere “epics” written by two entirely different humans at two different times, then why would everything resemble even up to minor aspects?
Mahabharat is of a later date than the Ramayan. Why would Vyasa of the Mahabharat borrow the same impressions and characters as those of the Valmiki of Ramayana?
6. Bharat Varsh
The homeland (also known as India) is named Bhaarat after king Bharat (heir of Dushyant & Shakuntala).
What nation would be named after a character of a novel!
7. Astronomical evidence
The Udyoga Parva of Mahabharata reveals that, just before the war, Lord Krishna went to Hastinapur in the month of Kartika on the day when the moon was at the Asterism Revati. On His way to Hastinapur, Krishna rested at a place for a day called Brikasthala, and on that day, the moon was at the Bharani asterism.
The day on which Duryodhana turned down all the efforts of Krishna and made the war imminent, the moon was resting at the Pushya asterism.
8. Hole in the Aryan theory
European scholars brought the wandering Aryan tribes into India after 1500 BC. How were the Aryans able to create the Sanskrit language, gain so much information and write all these texts before 700 BC?
Renowned Indian scholars, including Sri Aurobindo, Lokmanya Tilak, and Dayanand Sarasvati, rebuffed the European theory.
9. The Gregorian Calendar
Not a surprise, but surely very interesting to note that the Gregorian Calendar indeed vouches for the Kurukshetra War to have taken place, as it states the beginning of Kali Yuga. According to the Calendar, the event occurred on February 18, 3102 BCE, at 2:27:30 AM.
Both the Eastern and Western cultures have accepted this date and time to have been the inception of Kaliyuga and Lord Krishna’s death.
10. The Perfect narration of the planetary positions
Krishna departed Hastinapura with Karna when the moon was yet to enter the asterism- Uttara Phalguni. Karna escorted him to some distance to see him off, and he then explained to Lord Krishna the formation of planets in the sky. He revealed his fear that such a planetary arrangement brings a very bad omen: large-scale loss of life and blood drenching. Vyasa described all these planetary positions in more than sixteen verses, and that too with so much intensity as if someone was painting them after visualizing them in the sky.
By reading one shloka or one sentence out of Bhagavad Gita, we can easily reason that only God can speak the real truth with so much precision and confidence.
We as souls exist, so the Super soul or God must exist whose name is Krishna, Allah or Jehova or Buddha as per His qualities. We should therefore pray and glorify him with love for everybody‘s happiness.
