|| LORD KRISHNA ||

Though known by many different names in many traditions,But there is only one God. Krishna is the original person. 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 of Mathura and mama of the Lord Krishna .The place of His birth is known as Sri Krishna JanmBhumi.

 The Supreme Lord descends from time to time in this material world to re-establish 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 re-establish the principles of religion, I Myself appear millenium after millenium."

Although eternal the Lord appears in specific circumstances out of mercy for His devotees. In fact, His principal biography, the Srimad Bhagavatam states, "the learned men describe the births and activities of the Unborn and Inactive." Therefore, although He appears within the material dimensions of time and space, He is most definitely not of it.

 Historically, Sri Krishna appeared on the midnight of the 8th day of the dark half of the month of Sravana. This corresponds to July 19th, 3228 BC. He exhibited His pastimes for a little over 125 years and dissappeared on February 18th, 3102 BC on the new moon night of Phalguna.(His departure marks the beginning of the current age of corruption known as Kali.)

 The great scholar Srila Vishvanatha Chakravarti neatly outlines Sri Krishna's activities in this way: the first three years and four months were spent in Gokula, then equal lengths of time in Vrindavana and Nandagram, eighteen years and four months in Mathura, and finally ninety-six years and eight months in Dvaraka totalling 125 years of manifest pastimes. 

In Mathura, both Krishna and Balarama were initiated by Gargamuni in the Gayatri mantra. Later They went to live under the care of Sandipani Muni who instructed Them in all the Vedic arts and sciences in sixty-four days and nights especially in military science, politics and spirituality. As an offering (Guru-Daksina) to Their teacher, They recovered his son from death. Although God does not need instruction from anyone else, Lord Krishna and His brother set the perfect example : one must accept instruction from and serve a bona-fide spiritual master to advance in spiritual life.

For the next eighteen years, They continued to live in Mathura halting the impending threat of many demonic kings. Later in Their pastimes Lord Balarama married a princess named Revati. Lord Krishna married many queens, the foremost among them being the extraordinarily beautiftil Queen Rukmini. Both Krishna and Balarama established Their palaces in Dvaraka off the coast of western India, where They enjoyed married life for many years. Although They were married, Lord Krishna and Lord Balarama exhibited the quality of detachment from material life perfectly. When They were about ninety years old, the great world war of Kuruksetra took place. This climactic battle brought together all the major world leaders. Lord Krsna took the role of a charioteer on the side of the pious Pandavas, while Lord Balarama refusing to participate went on a pilgrimage tour thereby blessing the entire land of India. At the start of the war, Lord Krishna displayed His stupendous Universal Form delivered His famous message known as the Bhagavad-Gita, literally the Song of God. This Song contains the essence of all knowledge having been spoken by the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna Himself. This war concluded with the destruction of the demonic kings and the reinstatement of the righteous Pandava princes.

 

Having completed Their mission, Balarama and Krishna resumed Their life in Dvaraka where They spent some thirty-five more years before ending Their earthly manifest activities The foremost description of Lord Krishna's activities occurs in the Srimad Bhagavatam, literally "the Beautiful Book of God."

Laakhi Premki Mahimaa Bhaari, Naumi Shyam Deenan Hitkaari

You ate simple vegetables at the house of devotees like Vidur in preference to the rich fare at Duryodhan's palace. O Shyama! O compassionate to the poor! Having witnessed your abounding grace and glory, I bow to you.

Nij Gitaa Ke Gyaan Sunaaye, Bhaktan Hriday Sudhaa Barsaaye

You drove chariot during the battle of Mahabharata; you remained unwearied with the discus in your hand. You communicated the wisdom of the Gita and let the hearts of your devotees abound with the nectar of love.

Raanaa Bhejaa Saamp Pitaari, Shaaligraam Bane Banvaari

Mira, your devotee, was so totally engrossed with unbounded devotion to you, that brimming with joy she even drank poison. When O Banavaari, the Rana sent a basket containing a snake, you assumed the form of a Shaligram stone.

Tav Shat Nindaa Kari Tatkaalaa, Jivan Mukt Bhayo Shishupaalaa

By revealing your illusory powers to Brahma, you dispelled all his misgivings. When Shishupala reviled you, you terminated his life.

When Draupadi sought your help by pleading, 'O Lord of the distressed! My honor is at stake!' You are, O Kanhaiya, so great a guardian of the helpless orphan that you rescue every sinking boat from the whirlpool of life.

Sundardaas Aas Ura Dhaari, Dayadrishti Keeje Banwaari
Naath Sakal Mam Kumati Nivaaro, Chhamobegi Apraadh Hamaaro

O Lord! Sundardas, an inmate of the hermitage of Durvasa, beseeches You to grant his wishes. O Lord! Dispel all ignorance from his heart and forgive him his faults.

Kholo Pat Ab Darshan Deeje, Bolo Krishna Kanhaiya Ki Jai

May you reveal yourself to him by opening the door of his heart. May we all sing 'Victory, victory to you, Lord Krishna, glory to Kanhaiya!'
 

ll Doha ll

Krishna chandra ke naam Se, hot praphullit gaay,

Yah chalisa Krishna ka, path kare ur dhaari,
asht siddhi nav niddhi phal, lahe padaarath chaari.
 

Whoever with cheerfulness sings this song will have his (or her) three types of troubles removed and will be freed from sins and diseases.

Those who recite this Krishna Chalisa with faith and devotion can acquire eight siddhis (supernatural powers through Yoga, viz., anima, mahima, garima, laghima, prapti, prakamya, ishitva and vashitva) and the nine types of treasures.

For starters, here goes a beautiful series of paintings on Shri Krishna Janm Katha by a super gifted artist, Madhava Priya, which I originally shared at the Bhakti Lounge:

Kans/Jarasandh/Banasur etc. troubling the earth:


Dharti Maa takes the form of a cow to ask for help:


Brahmaji takes pity and says he'll have a word with Bhagwan Vishnu:


Bhagwan Vishnu announces Krishna avtaar is up next:


Kans driving VasuDevaki's chariot:


They're having fun:


Akashwani is heard... no more fun:


He tries to kill her:


Vasuji takes charge:


He brings baby number one, Kirtimaan, as promised:


Chanoor and the other evil ministers tell him he shouldn't have spared the child:


Devaki pregnant with baby Balram:


Krishna is born and taken to Gokul:


And here are some other paintings that depict the events of the first Janmashtami, by various artists:



This one's by Raja Ravi Varma:



One of my FAVs Day Dreaming





Another fav:

On the other hand, pleasure within each heart calls the Lord as the entire Vrindavan calls Him

Basudha Yashodar snehodhar utholay (2)

Mother earth's affection rises for the divine baby just like Maa Yashoda

Kalo rakhal nache thoi ta thoi (2)

The time (kaal) is dancing in joy like a cowboy

Timiro bidari alokho bihari

Krishna murari aagoto oi

Viswa bhori uthe stobo namo namo

The whole universe bows to Him & sings His glory

Ariro puri majhe elo arindamo

Within the prison of His enemy, the slayer of all enemies has born

Viswa bhori uthe stobo namo namo

The whole universe bows to Him & sings His glory

Ariro puri majhe elo arindamo

Within the prison of His enemy, the slayer of all enemies has born

Gheria dar britha jaage prohori jono

All efforts of guards of prison become unsuccessful

Kararo majhe elo bandho-bimochono

Because He came within the prison who can liberate people from all imprisonments

Gheria dar britha jaage prohori jono

All efforts of guards of prison become unsuccessful

Kararo majhe elo bandho-bimochono

Because He came within the prison who can liberate people from all imprisonments

Dhori ajana roop aasilo anagato (2)

The Lord appears here assuming an unknown form

Jagiya vaythahato daake "Maa Vai" (2)

All the distressed people wake up & say, "There is no more fear"

Timiro bidari alokho bihari

Krishna murari aagoto oi

Tutilo aagolo, nikhilo pagolo (2)

Sarbosaha aaji sarbojayi

Timiro bidari alokho bihari

Krishna murari aagoto oi (3)

Translation of this song:

(credit of translation goes to my Debipriya di)

Elo Nander nandano naboghono Shyam,

Behold! Here comes the son of Nand! The blue coloured Shyam!

Elo Jashoda nayanomoni, nayonabhiraam,

He is the Light of Yashoda's eyes! The Beautiful one!

Prem Radharaman nabo bankim thaat,

He is the Lord of Radha's heart! The Elegant styled One!

Chiro rakhal gokule elo Golok tyaaji,

The eternal cowherd of Gokul, who came here leaving Golok

Krishnoji, Krishnoji, Krishnoji, Krishnoji'

O Lord Krishna!

 

 

 

Bhoyo traata elo karaa klesh naashi,

He is the Saviour, who appeared during the sufferings of the prison

Kaajol noyone elo ujolo shoshi,

All the dark/ sad eyes just overflowed with joy!

Muchhaate bedon bethaa timir haari,

He came to destroy all the pain and darkness,

Oi bijoli jholoke elo ghano goroji,

He came like the storm and the thunder.

Krishnoji, Krishnoji, Krishnoji, Krishnoji'

O Lord Krishna!

 

 

Hey biraat tobo mongolo aankhi tole,

O Lord, under your beneficial vision,

Koto pushpo phote premo osrujole,

So many flowers bloom but with loving tears

Aurobindo pade aar kichhu na chaahi,

We do not ask for anything else from thy Lotus Feet,

Jeno gopon preme mono rohe moji.

Only the secret Lov,e which will flow within, always.

Krishnoji, Krishnoji, Krishnoji, Krishnoji'

O Lord Krishna!

May little Kanha bless you all Star

Happy Janmashtami to everyone!

                      Jai Shree Krishna!!!

            Lord Krishna is considered the Sampurna Avatar of the                                    Supreme 

               Born with all 16 kalas of Sree Narayan he came to this                earth to teach human kind many lessons
                      The greatest of them being 
                      the Sremad Bhagwad  Geeta

           of Geeta Vani the following verse appeals the most to me
                 it gives solace in pain and grief and tells us the Lord                          is there to protect us in all sufferings

                                           paritranaya sadhunam 
                                            vinasaya cha duskrtam 
                                        dharma-samsthapanarthaya                                                                               sambhavami yuge yuge


                            In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the                                        miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of                                 dharma( Righteous ness), I advent Myself                                                             millennium after millennium.
                    
                                                    Hare Krishna


                                         He Krishna Govinda Hare Murari He Naath                                                             Narayan Vasudeba

Radhe Krishna , Radhe Krishna
Krishna Krishna Radhe Radhe
