Dantavakra was the son of one of Vasudev's (Krishn's father) sister Shrutdevaa and Raajaa Vriddhsharmaa of Karoosh Desh. When he heard that Krishn had killed Shishupaal (Krishn's father's another sister's son), he came to Mathuraa to fight with Krishn. Krishn also came to Mathuraa to fight with him. Both had a great fight at the gate of Mathuraa Puree near Yamunaa River. In the end Krishn killed him with His Gadaa hitting his chest. A light came out of his body and got absorbed in Krishn. He also got Parampad of Krishn.
