The Story of Krishna and the giant serpent

A giant black serpent, Kaaliya enters Vrindavan and begins living, along with his family, in the river Yamuna. Kaaliya slowly turns the river water poisonous with its venom, making the lives of villagers miserable. People try everything possible to get rid of the black serpent.

Lord Krishna could not see his people suffering and decides to fight Kaaliya. Krishna gathers the weight of the entire planet, jumps on Kaaliya’s head and starts hitting the serpent by dancing on it.

Kaaliya begins vomiting blood and loses all the strength. When Kaaliya is nearing death, his wives appear and pray to Krishna, asking for mercy. Krishna grants mercy to the serpent; Kaaliya realizes the greatness and strength of Lord Krishna and promises to leave the river.

The serpent leaves the river and Vrindavan forever, and people rejoice in the victory of Krishna.
