Mathura inscriptions

Written by Alok Mohan on June 20, 2022. Posted in Uncategorized

According to few scholars, lord krishna was called vasudev. He was born as a Kshatriya. Vasudeva is avatar of Vishnu & is a four-armed divinity, his elder brother Balarama to his right under a serpent hood, his son Pradyumna to his left (lost), and his grandson Aniruddha on top, as was found in a few image Inscriptions of 2nd century kept at, Mathura Museum.
Therefore, there are sufficient evidences available to us, which suggest that Krishna was infact a historical figure, who had lived about a few thousand years ago.
This evidence is not just literary but we have empirical evidences available to us in the form of Inscriptions.
