But Brahmaji said, ‘O Rajan, you have been in Brahmlok ever since. Many eras have passed since then. Your relatives are also over. Dwaparyuga is going on Earth. Earth at this time.

Lord Vishnu himself has incarnated as Shri Krishna there. And his brother Balarama is also there. Who is the incarnation of Sheshnag. Rajan, you are difficult to meet Balarama for the well-known groom Revathi. So marry Revathi with Balarama. ‘

Introduction To Balarama

Krishna is considered Vishnu and Balarama as the incarnation of Sheshnag. It is said that when Kamsa killed the six sons of Devaki-Vasudeva, then Lord Balarama appeared in Devaki’s womb. Yogmaya attracted him and likewise took him to the womb of Shri Rohini, living with Nand Baba. Therefore, he got a name connecting.

Balaram Ji was married to Revathi. He is also known as Balabhadra because he is superior among the strong. There is a famous temple of Dauji in Mathura by his name. He also has a chariot in Jagannath’s Rath Yatra. They wear mace. After the destruction of the Yaduvansh in the Mausul war, Balarama gave up his body by putting a pedestal on the beach. Jarasandha found Balramji to be his worthy rival. If Sri Krishna had not refused, Balram would have sent him to Yamlok in the first attack itself.

Why Not Balaram Join The War Of Mahabharata?

Lord Krishna’s elder brother Balarama explained many times to Shri Krishna that we should not join the battle, as both Duryodhana and Arjuna are our friends. It would be appropriate not to favor both at the time of such a religious crisis. However, Krishna had no problem of any kind. He had also solved this problem. He had told Duryodhana that you should choose either me and my army. Duryodhana selected Krishna’s army.

It is mentioned in the Mahabharata that while the preparations for the war were being made and there one day, Lord Sri Krishna’s elder brother Balarama suddenly arrived in the cantonment of the Pandavas. Sri Krishna, Yudhishthira, etc., we’re very happy to see Dau Bhaiya coming. Everyone respected him. Greeting everyone, Balarama sat down with Dharmaraja.

He said with great distress that how many times I told Krishna that both Pandavas and Kauravas are the same for us. Both are thought to be foolish. We do not need to fall into this, but Krishna did not listen to me. Krishna has so much affection for Arjuna that he remains in opposition to the Kauravas. Now, how should I go in opposition to the side of Krishna? Both Bhima and Duryodhana have learned mace from me. Both are my disciples. I have a similar affection for both. I do not like seeing these two Kuruvanshis fightings among themselves, so I am going on pilgrimage.
