Krishna Janmashtami Story
KANSA – the demon king was the brother of Devaki. He had once heard some unseen power predict his death by the 8th son of his sister. This is the reason he jailed his sister and brother in law immediately after hearing the prediction. In the long run, they gave birth to children who were killed the moment they took birth by Kansa. After murdering 7 sons of Devaki and Vasudeva, the time came for the eighth one. This time Krishna’s father Vasudeva decided to save his son. So immediately after the birth of the baby, miracles happened and the gates of the jail opened by themselves.
Seeing this, Vasudeva slid through the iron bars and escaped from the jail of Kansa. He took the baby to Dwaraka from Mathura to his relatives place. The journey seemed almost impossible as he had to cross a deep sea.
But something mysterious happened and the sea tore into two parts. A passage was automatically built with high tides of water stopped by some unseen force on both the sides. Vasudeva just followed the miracles and made way to Dwaraka.
Due to heavy rains, the baby was getting wet. At this moment a huge snake with seven heads appeared to act as a protection for the baby. He is named as ‘Sapt Naag‘.
Vasudeva took his baby to Dwarka and gave him to Yasodha and Nanda. In return, he took there just born baby girl who was an incarnation of Goddess Durga.
Yasodha and Nanda were very happy with their new born baby and kept him safe.
Slowly this naughty baby gained the attention of all the villagers of Dwaraka and became a hero.
