BALARAMA

God of Farming and Strength.

He shared a womb with his brother KRISHNA after being rescued from certain death at the hands of uncle KAMSA.

Unlike his dark-skinned brother, BALARAMA had white skin and paled into insignificance beside the heroic KRISHNA. Spent most of his later years plowing fields and hitting people.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Balarama graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Balarama movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Balarama statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Balarama. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
