Excerpt from Folk-Lore, 1900, Vol. 11: A Quarterly Review of Myth, Tradition, Institution, and Custom

To put the story as brie?y as possible, we find a branch of the great Yadava clan of Kshatriyas, who probably owed their origin to a Yu-echi invasion from Central Asia, settled on the banks of the River Jumna, with Mathura as their capital. That they were outsiders or new-comers is impor tant when we come to consider certain elements in the cultus which indicate foreign in?uence. Krishna, we are told, was the son of Vasu-deva and Devaki. The former, by one interpretation of his name, is one Of the Old celestial genii, the bright ones; the latter, Devaki, the divine one, has been identified with the seductive water-nymph of folklore. But more probably in Devaki and Krishna we may see representatives of the world-wide group of the divine mother and the fateful child - Nana of Babylon, Isis and Horus in Egypt, Lucina and her child in Latin tradition.
