The deaths resulted in a Sun darkening at noon. He “resurrected” from the dead. He descended into hell. He ascended to heaven “in the sight of all men.” He came to earth to die for the salvation of man. Krishna was deemed “Son of God”, “Our Lord and Savior.” He was part of a trinity, the second person. His disciples gave him the title of “pure essence” which sounds close the the name Jesus (in Hindustani).

The symbolism of the Elephant is that it is the largest animal in the world and represents all the sins of the world. The symbolism of the lamb is one of innocence and represents the victim.
