Seeing the excitement around,little Krishna was curious to know the significance of the event and wished to understand from his father Nand baba, more about Lord Indra, the King of heaven.
Nand baba explained to his little son, the greatness of Lord Indra and the importance of the ritual sacrifice.But baby Krishna who was none other than the 8th incarnation of Lord Vishnu extolled the virtues of Shri Giriraj ji to the people gathered there.The words of infant Krishna, spoken in his sweet babbling voice were so endearing that the residents of Brij were highly impressed and they were immediately ready to do his bidding !
