Indians worship many Gods. That is the view of any outsider who observes the religious practices of Indians. But, all these gods are ultimately considered manifestations of the same Supreme divinity that Hindus call the Brahman.

The two major Gods of the Hindu Trinity, Vishnu and Shiva, are themselves worshipped in many forms, as are their Divine Consorts. These forms and consorts are also known as Rama Krishna, Nataraja, Narasimha, Durga, Parvati, and Ganesha.

Krishna was the ultimate playmate to children, the dream lover of every girl, the ideal friend, a courageous warrior, a wise teacher, and a pragmatic strategist. He was everything to everyone, and he was accessible to all.

He is known as a Divine Lover, a Divine Child, as God who came down as man, and as Man who became God.

Krishnavatara 1 - The Magic Flute by Dr. K.M. Munshi views him as a man who fulfilled everyone’s idea of their ideal, a loveable child, an enchanting lover, the affectionate husband, the loyal friend, and the wise guru.

Dr. Munshi covers the life of Krishna in seven volumes, Krishnavatara I: The Magic Flute, Krishnavatara II: The Wrath Of An Emperor, Krishnavatara III: The Five Brothers, Krishnavatara IV: The Book Of Bhima, Krishnavatara V: The Book Of Satyabhama, Krishnavatara VI: The Book Of Vedavyaasa, The Master, and Krishnavatara VII: The Book Of Yudhishthira.

This first book, The Magic Flute traces the early events, from before the birth of Krishna, to his birth in prison, his being secretly transported to the house of Nandagopa and Yashoda, his charming childhood pranks and exploits, his magical flute playing that enchanted humans and animals alike, and his life among the cowherds of Vrindavan.

It ends with Krishna leaving his adoptive parents and beloved childhood friends, and setting off for Mathura, at the invitation of his scheming maternal uncle, Kamsa. The book ends with Krishna slaying Kamsa in a wrestling match.
