Krishna Lilas - The Nectarian Pastimes of the Sweet Lord
The killing of Pralambāsura and the devouring of the devastating forest fire by Krsṇa and Balarāma became household topics in Vrindāvana. The cowherd men described these wonderful activities to their wives and to everyone else, and all were struck with wonder. They concluded that Krsṇa and Balarāma were demigods who had kindly come to Vrindāvana to become their children.
To Be Alive
The elephant is a symbol of the strength of the mind in Buddhism. Exhibiting noble gentleness, the precious elephant serves as a symbol of the calm majesty possessed by one who is on the path. Specifically, it embodies the boundless powers of the Buddha which are miraculous aspiration, effort, intention, and analysis. AND...it's an elephant. I knew I loved elephants for a reason :)!
Yashoda (Sanskrit: यशोदा) was wife of Nanda within the Puranic texts of Hinduism. Within the Bhagavata Purana it is described that Yasoda later became the foster-mother to Krishna, who was born to Devaki but was given to Yashoda and Nanda in Gokul, by Krishna's father Vasudeva on the night of his birth, for his protection from Devaki's brother, the king of Mathura, Kansa.
