INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

SAKTASSURA

Indian Demon

A demon who tried to kill KRISHNA as an infant

This was a futile thing to attempt as KRISHNA was more than capable of knocking hell out of any demon from earliest infancy.

KRISHNA was sleeping in the shade under a laden wagon. The demon added his magically enhanced weight so the wagon would collapse and crush the child. KRISHNA opened one sleepy eye gave a swift Godly kick with one of his tiny toes.

The whole wagon flipped over and you know who was now underneath and got crushed to death.
