Krishna also known as Kanha was the son of a king yet spent most of his childhood playing with children of cowherds in Yashomati Maiyya ke Nandlala. One of the most known life lessons by Lord Krishna is, friendship. He treated his friends with utmost kindness and respect. He would always consider their opinions while putting forward his suggestions as he treated his friends as his equals that showcases utmost humility is when friends are treated with nobility.

It also focuses on the importance of open communication between friends as it promotes trust and strengthens the bond.

Lord Krishna teaches us to control anger through various means from the Bhagavad Gita. During the Kurukshetra War, Krishna guides Arjuna and shows the importance of controlling anger as its the root cause of making wrong decisions in the heat of anger.

Anger can cause many problems such as delusion and loss of judgement which further causes a chain of events in which we suffer for the decisions made during the heat. Kanha explains in Bhagavad Gita that anger is a powerful emotion which can cause in your life if it is not controlled or left unchecked for a long period .

Detachment from strong emotion enables a person to focus on the situation instead of losing control to it , which further results in an unfavorable outcomes as seen in Yashomati Maiyya ke Nandlala. The main key and foundation of having control over anger is self-control and discipline, this includes practicing detachment which allows us to control over natural impulses.

3. Sacrifice for fruits of life

Sacrifice carries a very heavy weight among the lessons thought by Kanha, Lord Krishna is known to use often the word yajna which is referred to sacrificial offering. Yajna offering is also known as offering made in the fire without having any form of attachments towards, in the very same manner it is encourage to individuals to perform their daily actions without having selfish purpose which allows us to reach the desired goals in life.

It is advised by Kanha (Lord Krishna) in Yashomati Maiyya ke Nandlala, if a person is not ready to let go of his wealth, time and pride , the person shall never reach the point of success in life and shall only see a downfall in the path of success. One of the biggest examples of sacrifice set by Lord Krishna is the Sacrifice of own-self for the sake of love, the readiness of going through the hardships of life to uphold dharma.

4. Faith in oneself

Krishna advises that an individual should have faith in himself/herself no matter what the situation is. The unwavering faith helps the person to go through various hardships of life without falling apart. Without faith taking even the tiniest steps seem very enduring and can make us slip in the path of our life. It is important to note that faith allows us to find the right direction in life while allowing us to fight against our darkest fear.

Faith does not discriminate between winners and losers rather it focuses on the unwavering belief no matter what the outcome. If we started to question the outcome without having belief, the world would stop existing as every tiny work has its risk yet we fulfill it, on the basis of our strong faith in ourself.

The foundation of life will show us various challenges in life which would try to deteriorate us from the path of success and will simultaneously challenge our faith. It is only faith which lifts us up even when the unpredictable life might choose the losing side for us as explained by mother Yashoda to Lord Krishna in Yashomati Maiyya ke Nandlala.

5. Detachment

People are often confuse sacrifice and detachment , but detachment can only be known as a sacrifice if the thing being sacrificed does is sacred to oneself. Detachment is not an easy process for any individuals in this new age, but it surely provides the individual with long term advantage due to it.

Instead of focusing on the final result , and rather enjoying the journey or process of doing something enables us to be happier and achieves success in life. Detachment also enables us to avoid any kind of disappointment or frustration, which allows us to focus on the enjoyment in the present.

Detachment is also known to be healthy in relationships, as without detachment, one cannot move in life and would end up interfering in the other person’s life and end being feeling guilty of the outcome. Further more, emotional detachment enables us to remain calm when others are trying to disturb or frustrate us by their criticism.

6. Forgiveness is the ultimate

Lord Krishna emphasizes that one should forgive the other person if he or she has done a sin , but one should not indiscriminately forgive for a sin which is done continuously after the forgiveness without guilt or regret. In Yashomati Maiyya ke Nandlala it is seen that mother Yashoda forgives Kanha, when he knowingly enters the forest when he was restricted by his mother from entering it. He still ends up entering the forest to meet the old lady, who keeps on praying to him that she wishes to see him before her demise.

Forgiveness allows humanity to stay humble in the ever-growing community, it also allows the other person to get past the zone of guilt and self-reflect on his/her actions. If the person is truly guilty, the individual will try to improve and get past through the mistake through their own karma.

Without forgiveness, the earth would become an atmosphere with discomfort, a breath of uncertainty and pressure which would only lead to an unsustainable living in this cycle of life.
