Janmashtami *(2 September 2018)
According to Indian mythological texts, Krishna is full of all times. If you see through spiritual, moral, or otherwise, then we will know that we are not like a Krishna-like society. Whenever the religion is patna and the atrocities of the atrocities on the earth increase. Then God has established the truth and religion with the incarnation of the earth. Bhadrapad Krishna Ashtami Dat of Ghanaghore Andheri, on the midnight of Rohini Nakshatra, Lord Krishna was born in the jail of Mathura by Vasudev’s wife Devaki. This date reminds of that auspicious time and is celebrated with great fanfare all over the country. On the Ashtami day God himself was incarnated on earth on this day, so celebrate this day as Krishna Janmashtami.
Story of Shrikrushna
In the Dwapar era Bhojwanshi king Ugarasen ruled in Mathura. His fierce son Kans lifted him from the throne and himself became the king of Mathura. A sister of Kansa was Devaki, who was married to Vasudeva Yaduvanshi Sardar. One time Brahma was going to deliver his in-laws to her sister Devaki. On the way, Akashwari came, ‘O Braun, the God whom you are taking with great love, in the same way your time passes. The eighth child born from this womb will kill you. ‘ Upon hearing this, arose to kill Kans Vasudev. Then Devaki politely said to her – ‘I will bring the child who will be born from my womb, I will bring you in front of you. What is the benefit of killing brother-in-law? Kanas accepted Devaki’s case and returned to Mathura. He put Vasudev and Devaki in jail. Vasudev-Devaki had seven children by one by one, and seven were killed by Kams when they were born. Now the eighth child was going to be. In the prison they were seated with stern guards. At the same time, Nand’s wife, Yashoda, was going to be a child too. He created a way to protect the eighth child watching Vasudev-Devaki’s unhappy life. When Vasudeva-Devaki was born, at the same time, a girl was born from Yashoda’s womb, which was nothing but ‘Maya’. In the closet, Devaki-Vasudev was imprisoned, suddenly there was light in him and he saw the quadrangular God, wearing a conch, circle, mace, Padma. Both fell into the feet of God. Then God said to them – “Now I take the form of a newborn again. You should send me here at Vrindavan, your friend, Nandji’s house and bring the daughter born here to her and give it to Kansa. At this time the environment is not friendly. Even then you do not worry. The watchmen will go to sleep, the doors of the jail will open automatically and the unfailing Yamuna will give you a way to cross. ‘ At the same time, Vasudev came out of the jail by keeping a newborn baby Krishna in a soup and passing through the Yamuna and passing in the house of Nandji. There he brought a newborn baby with Yashoda and came to Mathura about the girl. The doors of the prison stopped undoing. Now Kans received information that Vaasudev-Devaki was born to a child. He went to the captive house and tried to snatch a newborn girl from the hand of Devaki and slap it on the earth, but the girl flew into the sky and said from there- ‘O fool, what will happen if I kill me? Your killer has reached Vrindavan. He will soon punish you for your sins. ‘ This is the story of Krishna birth.
