A short speech on Shri Krishna by the famous author has evolved into this volume which deals with his all-sidedness and multi-faceted attributes.

Just as historians of post-Roman national life in Europe have divided the Christian Centuries into the Dark Age, the Mediaeval Age, the Renaissance Period, and the Modern Age, so Puranic historians have divided the long Story of Man into the Satya, the Treta, the Dvapara and the Kali eras. Krishna came at the junction between Dvapara and Kali, when the latter, the age of predominant individualism and competition and struggle, was beginning.

The Purana School has a theory of its own as to these Great Men. They do not appear accidentally. They evolve from smallness to greatness, life after life, in accordance with laws. They are of various grades and kinds and degrees of power. They appear for special reasons in special circumstances.

This significant work on Krishna reviews Krishna as Man of Action, History-Maker and Righter of Wrongs. As man of desire, of feeling, of arts, Krishna's life was equally full. Krishna's extraordinary beauty of face and figure and unique color and complexion have been the theme of the singers of a hundred and fifty generations after him.
