Ganga- is brought down to the earth by the deep penance of Bhagiratha and it came from the holy feet of Sri Mahavishnu, whereas Krishna is the tejorupa of Lord Mahavishnu -it is his amsa-emerged from the whole mass of His body. Decidedly, it is greater than Ganga. Moreover, its very birth and purpose of descent too differ from that of Ganga and positively it rates hither in every respect. Tradition affirms that Lord Brahma seeing Yamaloka overflowing with sinners of all types, decided to put a stop to sinning and relieving them once for all. Unable to solve the knotty problem by himself, he went to Vaikunta and narrated what he had observed to Sri Mahavishnu and rayed for solution. Brooding over it a little, the Lord created a river from a part of his luminous body and said that he who sees, or thinks, or praises it, gets purged of his sins, regardless of the type of sin he committed, knowingly or unknowingly, or done under provocation or as retaliatory measure. As it emerged from his Nilameghasyamakara - black-hued body, it partook his colour and so was named Krishnaveni, an appropriate name at it. In addition, being the Powerful amsa of Sri Mahavishnu, she never gets her powers diminished, whereas almost all the rivers lose their purity and sanctity after some yugas.
