Lord Krishna and Balarama (His elder brother) were willing to do hard work and showed that prosperity can be achieved through hard work. Lord Krishna was all-knowing, all-powerful, and Divinity incarnate, yet He worked as a charioteer for Arjuna. Krishna was one who recognised the importance of service to the community; and by His own example showed that service to others was important. Everyday, after the war of Mahabharata, Lord Krishna took the horses to the river, washed them and tended their wounds and applied medicines. Lord Krishna demonstrated that hard work and compassion to all living beings constitute the duty of all human beings. [Summer Roses on Blue Mountains 1976, Ch 3]
