Krishna - Perhaps the best-known Hindu deity in the West, Krishna, an incarnation of Vishnu (sometimes perceived as the sustainer, in trinity with Brahma the creator and Shiva the destroyer), is the Divine Teacher in the Bhagavad Gita. Rama, also an incarnation of Vishnu, is the hero of the epic poem, Ramayana. He and his wife Sita are considered the ideal husband and wife. (ZooFence)

Krishna and Rama are the two most famous earthly incarnations of Vishnu. Many legends surround the figure of Krishna as a great hero and teacher. In more recent legends he is often represented as a young and amorous flute playing shepherd, the eighth son of Vasudeva.

In Vaishnava Hindu thinking, Krishna is the supreme personality of the godhead and all other gods, and living entities are his servants. He is unborn and eternal. He is usually pictured as black, in a dancing posture, and playing a flute. He is the speaker of the Bhagavad-gita, which is considered like the Bible of Indian philosophy.
