Krish is an unusual name in America, so I figured it was a family name, or a name of some import in India. Ha! As it turns out, Krishna is of HUGE import in Hinduism and culture in India. Both he and his older brother were named after Hindu Mythology, brothers Krishna & Balarama.
So I thought I would do a little research into this mythology for this blog post. Krishna & Balarama are most notably heroes of the Mahabharat (among other mythologies and historical appearances), translated as The Great Tale of the Bharata Dynasty, and one of two major Sanskrit epic poems of ancient India. The Mahabharat actually holds the title of the longest poem ever written at about 1.8 million words in total, ten times the length of Homer’s Iliad & Odyssey, combined. Written around 400 BCE, though the origins of the story are thought to fall between the 8th & 9th centuries BCE.
Krishna is a worshiped as the eighth avatar of the god Vishnu and also a supreme god in his own right. He is the god of compassion, tenderness and love in Hinduism, and is one of the most popular and widely revered among Indian divinities. In the Mahabharata, he appears on the battlefield scenes and is shown as the royal Pandava Prince Arjuna‘s guide & charioteer, and speaks the Bhagavad Gita – a scripture and fundamental ideology of Hinduism. Krishna’s brother, Balarama, is his right hand man, and is represented as a symbol of strength, an obedient son, an ideal brother and husband, an ideal man and god in Indian culture.
Teddy Bear & Aviator Newborn Session – Krish
So…these boys have a lot to live up to! But this little Krish couldn’t be cuter. This cutie pie was so good for his newborn session. With teddy bears and airplanes, Krish has a little bit of everything in his newborn session. Browns, greys & blues, and a small pop of red, his session was full of warmer tones and soft blankets. And he slept like a dream.
Here he is snuggled up with a giant teddy bear.
