Happy Janmashtami New 2017


  1. Krishna is considered to be one of the most powerful incarnations of Lord Vishnu, who was born into this world to help~ people get rid of evil demons. Janmashtami’s history dates back to several thousands of years when Lord Krishna was born to Devaki and Vasudevaa, who were imprisoned by his maternal uncle Kansa, the king of Mathura.

  2. Lord Krishna's Childhood Days
  3. There are various stories of Lord Krishna, which speak about his feats during his childhood. According to one such story, Krishna had killed lady demon, Putna and various other demons like Trunavarta, Aristhasur, ~and Keshi. He’s also famous for killing Kaliya Nag in order to remove poison from the river Yamuna.
  4. As a child, Krishna was mischievous and adept at stealing curd and butter and playing pranks with the girls of the village. He mesmerized the village girls and ladies with the music of his flute and his cosmic dances. He spent 3 years and 4 months of his childhood in Gokul after which he went to Vrindavan and stayed there until he was 6 years and 8 months old.
  5. One of the most exciting stories about Krishna’s childhood is that he lifted the Govardhana hill with his finger so as to protect the~ villagers of Vrindavan from the rain caused by Lord Indra. Krishna then stayed in Nandagram for 10 years after which he returned to Mathura. Next, he killed Kamsa and freed his parents from the prison. He made Ugrasena the king of Mathura and completed his education during his stay there.
