Krishna – the eighth incarnation of the preserver God Vishnu, stealing makhan (butter) with his friend from the pots of Gopikas (cowherd girls).
The supreme God Vishnu incarnated as Krishna in the Dwapar Yuga played the role (leela) of a mischevious boy in the childhood. Krishna was fond of makhan (butter) in the childhood. He and his cowherd friends used to steal makhan from the pots of Gopikas (cowherd girls). He used to offer the butter to his friends who were poor and couldn’t have butter. The family members of the Gopikas thought that Krishna as a mere cowherd boy. But the Gopikas had devotion and love for Krishna, but they couldn’t offer butter to Krishna due to their family. Hence, by stealing butter from Gopikas, Krishna fulfilled their wishes.
