krishna and christ can both be translated to mean anointed one and they are both similar in the fact they were considered by many the holy spirit in human form. there was even a culling of infant children in krishnas time. krishna was born into a royal household (reminds me of jesus's house of david) vaishnava's who follow krishnas teachings see jesus as a great teacher, as his mission was to spread the love of god. its a faith well worth looking into, try reading the bhagavad gita - as it is by his divine grace srila prabupada...it is a faith based on the laws of karma and reincarnation.. and how each soul must migrate through different lifetimes before gaining the knowledge which will allow them back home to the eternal spirit.
after my dream i spent time at the temple trying to learn more about this character krishna...and have to admit this faith struck a cord with me, more so than any others that i had come across. im no expert but if you have any questions about it feel free to message me and i will explain what i know..or find an ISKON temple near you on google...the monks are always very happy to answer any questions you might have. it is one of the oldest known faiths and its teachings are usually written in sanskrit.
