Why Peacock feather a part of Lord Krishna's attire?
One of the most revered and modest deities of all is Lord Krishna, sometimes known as Kanah or Kanhaiya or just as Krishna as we would refer to him here. Millions of people admire Lord Vishnu's eighth incarnation because of both his enhanced beauty and great intellect. The peacock feather that is always affixed to his headdress is another element that contributes to the overall stunning appearance of this man. Do you ever find yourself wondering, given that information, why Lord Krishna is depicted with a peacock plume perched on his head? The following is a recounting of a narrative that is found in the Shrimad Bhagavatam that explains the phenomenon in question:

The Story


Krishna awoke early one summer morning after a blissful slumber in the Vrindavan woodland. After some time, he decided to wake up his sleeping cowherd mates. So he took out his flute and began playing, also to call the cows who were nearby and grazing back. While Krishna was playing the mesmerizing song on his flute, the peacocks in and surrounding the Vrindavan forest were enchanted by the seductive vibrations that emanated from the instrument. Peacocks soon crowded around Krishna and started dancing joyfully.

They were dancing to the delight of Lord Krishna, the origin of all dramatic arts. He urged the peacocks to dance by making exciting facial expressions and grinning. Within a short period, the peacocks began to rejoice, and Vrindavan could hear them. Peacocks grew ecstatic and hopped up and down while in unison waving their wings.

The King of Peacocks eventually entered the herd as the peacocks crowded around. It produced noises when it touched Krishna's feet, which Krishna interpreted as a thank-you message and an invitation for the peacocks to dance beside them. Krishna politely accepted the invitation and started dancing with the peacocks.

The peacocks raised their vocal pitch as Krishna joined them, such that it matched the beat of his movements. Lord Krishna raised the velocity of his steps such that some peacocks were unable to keep up with him as he matched the melodies of the flute and the peacocks. All of the animals that lived in the Vrindavan forest converged on one central location to witness the Lord and the peacocks doing their dance.

Upon witnessing his master's extraordinary performance, even Lord Krishna's flute started to play an appealing melody by itself. When viewed from the highest point in the Vrindavan hills, the exhibition presented an extraordinarily breathtaking sight.

The peacocks danced with Lord Krishna for a very long period, but eventually, they became weary and stopped dancing. But Lord Krishna had already left for another planet. He was still dancing in delight, and the world was gone for him. When he finally stopped after several days, there was a beautiful silence.

The Peacock King then approached Lord Krishna. He knelt before him in appreciation and said:

“Oh Great Lord! We shall always be grateful to you for creating this festival of happiness! It is our responsibility to give you "Gurudakshina." Please accept the only opulence we have, which is our feathers! Please use these as decorations on your crown.”

The peacock shed some of his exquisite wings around Shri Krishna as soon as he declared as much. Some of them were delicately scooped up by Lord Krishna, who placed them inside his turban. And even then, the highest godhead has adorned his head with peacock feathers.

So, what can we learn from this story?


The short narrative demonstrates the importance of being thankful for all that is given to us, no matter how tiny. And in exchange, we are required to give the Lord our very best, along with our complete dedication.

Lord Krishna instructs us to accept gifts from others with open hearts rather than trying to evaluate their materialistic value. By doing this, you show gratitude to the giver and learn to value even the little things in life. By not assigning a value to the present, you can avoid being drawn into the realm of materialism. The Jain scholars have espoused the same notion in their doctrine of Aparigraha.

Just as Lord Krishna expressed his appreciation for the service the peacocks did him by dancing to his music, so too must we express our appreciation and respect for one another.
