Sri Krishna Janmashtami Celebrations....

Made a short video with Krishna Janmashtami Celebration photos at my home....



Song : Chitram chiru Kaale (Thirupavai song : 29) Singer : Smt. Lalita Gopalakrishnan ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sri Krishna Janmashtami is known by different names through out India viz., Janmashtami or Gokulashtami or Krishna Jayanthi. This is a festival to celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna, the 8th incarnation of Bhagavan Vishnu. Celebrated on Ashtami tithi, the eighth day of the dark half or Krishna Paksha of the month of Bhadrapada in the Hindu calendar, when the Rohini Nakshatra is ascendant. This is celebrated usually in the months of August or September in the said month when the above thithi and star falls. Sri Krishna was born to Queen Devaki and her husband, King Vasudeva in Mathura. Devaki's brother is Kamsa. During that time, Mathura was in miserable state as Kamsa, had put his father, King Ugrasen in prison and declared himself the new king. When Vasudeva and Devaki got married, a voice from the heaven (a divine prophecy) proclaimed that "Devaki's 8th child would kill Kamsa". To protect himself, Kamsa rushed to kill his sister but gave up the idea of killing after being assured by Vasudev that he will hand over all his children to Kamsa. Kamsa put his brother-in-law and sister in prison. Kamsa killed all the six infants as soon as they were born. The seventh child (Balram) was saved due to divine intervention, when he was transferred from Devaki's womb to that of Rohini's (the other wife of king Vasudev). When Krishna was born, with the divine intervention, Vasudeva secretly carries the infant Krishna away across the river Yamuna and exchanges him with his close friend King Nand of Gokul and takes his daughter to the prison back. When Kamsa tries to kill the newborn, the exchanged baby appeared as the Hindu goddess Durga (Yoga Maya), warning him that his death has arrived in his kingdom, and then disappears, according to the legends in the Puranas. Krishna grows up with Nanda Baba and his wife Yashoda. When Kamsa knows his whereabouts, he sends various demons to kill baby Krishna. Krishna slays all the demons sent by him. Later when he grows up into a boy, he kills Kamsa putting an end to his tyranny. Krishna has two siblings viz. Balram (Baladev) and Subhadra (Wife of Arjun and mother of Abhimanyu). In Puri, Krishna is worshipped as Jagannath and blesses people along with his siblings. Krishna Janmashtami is celerbated through out India with Vigour. Though the rituals practiced vary from one region to the other, the spirit and devotion to the Lord is same everywhere. Hare Krishna!
