The birth anniversary of Lord Balarama, Lord Krishna's elder brother, is commemorated as Balarama Jayanti in many areas of India. Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is source of all incarnations. His second body is Lord Balarama. Both of them have same identities. They simply differ in appearance. Balarama is Krishna's first physical expansion, and he aids Lord Krishna in his transcendental pastimes. He is the adi-guru, the first spiritual teacher, and wellspring of the entire spiritual universe.
To serve Lord Krishna, he adopts five different forms. He assists Lord Krishna in his pastimes, and He creates in four additional forms known as the catur-vyuha forms of Vasudeva, Sankarshana, Pradyumna, and Aniruddha. In the task of creation, he carries out Lord Krishna's commands, and in the guise of Lord Sesa, he assists Sri Krishna in many ways. He enjoys the ultimate delight of serving Krishna in all of His incarnations. No one can approach Krishna without first seeking Baladeva's compassion.
Krishna is always accompanied by His companions and paraphernalia whenever He comes in the corporeal realm. When Krishna entered into the corporeal world five thousand years ago, he was preceded by Baladeva. Krishna only descended when Baladeva granted Him mercy, such is Krishna's close friendship with Baladeva.
Lord Balarama is sixteen years old, brimming with the radiance of youth and a crystal-clear skin. He's dressed in blue with a garland of wild flowers around his neck. His hair is pulled back into a beautiful topknot. His ears are adorned with beautiful jewellery, and His neck is adorned with flower garlands and gem strings. Balram's beautiful and extremely powerful arms are adorned with splendid armlets and bracelets, and His feet are adorned with golden anklets.
The earrings that touch Lord Balarama's cheekbones generally add to His attractiveness, or so they literally thought. His face for the most part is adorned with a musk tilak, and his basically wide chest generally is adorned with a gunja garland, or so they mostly thought. Many millions of gleaming rising moons particularly are literally eclipsed by Lord Balarama's magnificence, and even a whiff of His limitless might specifically is enough to slay legions of demons, or so they kind of thought. Despite the fact that He is aware of Krishna's superhuman abilities, He never specifically leaves Krishna alone in the jungle, even for a second, out of love for Him. Balarama basically is Sri Krishna's closest buddy and a vast repository of generally many hobbies in a sort of major way.
