Lord Krishna was raised in the cow herding village of Gokul by his foster parents Nanda Maharaj and Yasoda Maa. The Bhagavata Purana describes Krishna’s early childhood pastimes in the Vrindavan forest where He, his brother Balarama, and his cowherd friends stole butter, engaged in childhood pranks and fought with demons. Along with these activities, Krishna is also described as meeting and dancing with the local girls of Vrindavan village, especially Radharani, who were known as gopis. Lord Krishna was capable of amazing feats and saved the village from many perils such as the Naga Kaliya and Krishna lifted the Govardhana hill and taught Indra, the king of the devas and rain, a lesson to protect native people of Vrindavana.
