Janmashtami is the celebration of Lord Krishna’s birth. It is celebrated in different ways throughout the country, depending on the local culture and traditions. There are many fun customs and traditions related to Janmashtami. In Maharashtra, Janmashtami is known as ‘Dahi Handi’ where groups of young men known as ‘govindas’ compete against each other to reach a pot of curd hung on a rope between two buildings. In North India Janmashtami is celebrated with puja at the temples, night vigils and Ram Leela plays.
Lord Krishna’s Childhood
Lord Krishna was born midnight on Ashthami Tithi in the month of Shravan. He was the ninth and the last avatar of Lord Vishnu. He was the son of Vasudev and Devaki, of the Vrishi clan of the Yadavas from Mathura. Due to political reasons and threats to his life, Krishna was sent to his foster mother Yashoda and Nanda of Gokul. He grew up there with his brother Balram.
In various legends, Krishna is described as a herdsman, a mischievous boy and a protector of the people. He is thought to be the one who is beloved by people in Mathura and Vrindavan. The Gopis were enchanted by Lord Krishna. He had fallen for Radha, a gopi or milk maid. It is said that whenever Krishna played the flute on the banks of the Yamuna, the gopis would come and dance with him. Even when the distance between them is great, the Gopis used to meditate with him. Even today, the Radha-Krishna Ras Leela’s are very popular during Janmashtami.
Eventually, Lord Krishna returns to his hometown of Mathura, overthrows his uncle and tyrant king Kamsa and reinstates his grandfather Ugrasena as the king of the Yadavas. In the epic Mahabharata, Lord Krishna plays a key role. After the Kurukshetra war, Krishna leads his Yadava subjects to Dwarka in modern day Gujarat. Lord Krishna is said to have died after the Kurukshetra war; a hunter named Jara kills him by shooting an arrow, thinking that Krishna is a deer. Lord Krishna forgives Jara and passes away. The place where he died is known as Bhalka or Dehotsarga in present day Gujarat.
Lord Krishna is well known as the God of Compassion, Tenderness and love. He is generally depicted with a blue or black coloured skin and a flute on his mouth. This Janmashtami rein in the good times just like Lord Krishna. Download the Cubber app and get a chance to win exciting prizes.
