Krishna answers life's big questions -- Who are we? How did we get here? What are we supposed to do? -- better than anyone else we've ever heard. Don't just take our word for it, though; read His words yourself:

Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 10.28

TRANSLATION

Of weapons I am the thunderbolt; among cows I am the surabhi. Of causes for procreation I am Kandarpa, the god of love, and of serpents I am Vasuki.

PURPORT:

The thunderbolt, indeed a mighty weapon, represents Krishna's power. In Krishnaloka in the spiritual sky there are cows which can be milked at any time, and they give as much milk as one likes. Of course such cows do not exist in this material world, but there is mention of them in Krishnaloka. The Lord keeps many such cows, which are called surabhi. It is stated that the Lord is engaged in herding the surabhi cows.

Kandarpa is the sex desire for presenting good sons; therefore Kandarpa is the representative of Krishna. Sometimes sex is engaged in only for sense gratification; such sex does not represent Krishna. But sex for the generation of good children is called Kandarpa and represents Krishna.
