Why Krishna descends in the Material World?

Lord Krishna has three resaons why he descends to this material world:

1. He says paritranaya sadhunam – "I come down, I incarnate Myself, or I send My representative only for the protection of the saintly persons, sages."

2. He says “vinashaya cha dushkritam: "Just to finish or kill those who are miscreants."

3. He says “dharma-samsthapanarthaya: To re-establish real religion.

Apart from the above three reasons for Krishna’s appearance, there is yet another reason why Krishna descends to this material world:

Imperfect life is realized in material existence, in five different relationships we share with everyone within the material world: neutrality, servitorship, friendship, filial love and amorous love between husband and wife or lover and beloved.

These five enjoyable relationships within the material world are perverted reflections of relationships with the Absolute Personality of Godhead in the transcendental nature.

That Absolute Personality, Sri Krishna, descends to revive the five eternally existing relationships.

Thus He manifests His transcendental pastimes in Vraja so that people may be attracted into that sphere of activities and leave aside their imitation relationships with the mundane.

Then, after fully exhibiting all such activities, the Lord disappears.

-Chaitanya Charitamrita – Adi-lila, Purport 3.12
