Lord Krishna: Pastimes of Lord Krishna

                                                                  Q. While reading Krishna Book I read that Garuda, a pure devotee of Lord Vishnu, used to visit Vrindavana and would eat fish from Yamuna River. I also read that every living entity in Vrindavan is a devotee of Lord Krishna. It follows that the fishes were also devotees of the Lord. How can we understand this act of Garuda? My doubt is that in Vrindavan, especially when Lord Krishna was personally present, all living beings (including fishes) in Vrindavan were in their spiritual form. How can living being in spiritual form be killed?

                                                                  Q. We all know of the great epic of Lord Krishna, the holy war between good and bad but on the other end I have few questions unanswered:

                                                                  Q. What happened to Krishna after Mahabharata? As per my information he was shot by someone on his foot thinking it to be a deer's eye, but are we telling that the disappearance of God from this world was just like that? Who ruled Mathura after His departure?

                                                                  Mausala Lila or the disappearance of Lord Krishna is described in response to Digest 60C.

                                                                  Q. If Bhishma was a devotee of the Lord, then why did he choose to fight against the Pandavas? Also why did he have to undergo a painful situation of lying down in a bed of arrows?

                                                                  In addition, why didn't Bhishmadev surrender to Lord Krishna like Vibhishana surrendered to Lord Rama? Is it because Bhishma gave more importance to his vow (his dharma) than to surrender to Krishna?

                                                                  Q. I have heard that while killing Putana, Krishna closed His eyes. On this, various spotless Vaishnava Acharyas have written commentaries which differ from each other. One Acharya writes that Krishna closed His eyes so as not to see the heinous face of the infant-killer. Some other Acharya writes that because He was killing a female, He closed His eyes...  and so on. (Krishna Book, Ch 6) So, how to understand this phenomenon?
