Lord Krishna And Kansha

Krishna is the eighth incarnation (avatar) of God Vishnu in Hinduism. The word Krishna means one with dark complexion and one who attracts all.

Lord Krishna Kansa Story The Supreme Lord descends from time to time in this material world to reestablish the teachings of the Vedas. In His Bhagavad-gita, Sri krishna promises: "Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion--at that time I descend Myself. To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear milleniumm after millenium."

Mother Earth, not capable to accept the burden of sins committed by evil kings and rulers, appealed to Brahma, the Creator for help. Brahma prayed to the Supreme Lord Vishnu, who assured him that he would soon be born on earth to destroy cruel forces.

The word Krishna means the person who is attractive to everyone.

Sri krishna appeared over five thousand years ago in Mathura,dist of state UP (India) to Devaki and Vasudeva in the jail of Kansa. Kansa was the king og mathura and maternal uncle ( mama) of the lord krishna .The place of His birth is known as Sri Krishna JanmBhumi (Prison of Mathura).

One such evil force was one Kansa, the ruler of Mathura (in northern India) and his citizens were totally frightened of him. On the day Kansa s sister Devaki was married to Vasudeva, an akashvani predict from the sky was heard that Devaki's 8th son would be killed Kansa. The frightened Kansa right away took his sword to kill his sister but Vasudeva stoped him and promised to hand over every new born child to him. Kansa agreed but imprisoned both Devaki and her husband Vasudeva in his prison .

When Devaki gave birth to her first child, Kansa came to the prison cell and killed the newborn. In this way, he killed the first six sons of Devaki one by one .Everytime the parents cried on their death. Even before her 8th child was born, Devaki and Vasudeva started lamenting its fate and theirs. Then suddenly Lord Vishnu appeared before them and said he himself was coming to rescue them and the people of Mathura. He asked Vasudeva to carry him to the house of his friend, the cowherd chief Nanda in Gokula village near Mathura right after his birth, where Nanda's wife Yashoda had given birth to a daughter same time .

He had to exchange his boy with daughter of yashoda and bring Yashoda's baby daughter back to the prison. At midnight on ashtami, the divine baby was born in Kansa's prison. And after all guards were sleep . Lock of Prisons unlocked automatically . Remembering the divine instructions, Vasudeva hide the child to his bosom and started for Gokula, but found that his legs were in chains. The God Vishnu helped him on every step to the journey of gokul. While crossing river Yamuna, Vasudeva held his baby high over his head. The rain fell in torrents and the river was in spate. But the water made way for Vasudeva and miraculously a five-mouthed snake (sheshNaag) followed him from behind and provided shelter over the baby.

When Vasudeva reached Gokula, he found the door of Nanda's house open. He exchanged the babies and hurried back to the prison of Kansa with the baby girl. Early in the morning, all the people at Gokula rejoiced the birth of Nanda's beautiful male child. Vasudeva came back to Mathura and as he entered, the doors of the prison closed themselves.

When Kansa came to know about the birth, he hurried inside the prison and tried to kill the new born baby. But that time it skipped from his hand and topping the sky. She was changed into the goddess Yogamaya, who told Kansa: "O imprudent! What will you get by killing me? Your opponent (Death man) is already born somewhere else." Kansa frightened to hear this . and tried to findout where is the baby was .

In his youth Krishna killed Kansa along with all his cruel associates, liberated his parents from prison, and reinstated Ugrasen as the King of Mathura.
