BanglaHunt Desk: Janmashtami, Krishna lovers celebrate Janmashtami every year centering on the date of birth of Sri Krishna. India is a country of different religions. Thirteen festivals are seen here in twelve months. Every time of the year there is something or other.
Among the 33 crore gods and goddesses, Lord Krishna, the human form of Lord Vishnu, was born on the eighth day of Krishnapaksha in the month of Bhadra. So on this special day, every Krishna-loving person celebrates with various joyous festivals.
Krishnavatar landed in the house of Basudev and Devaki 5,000 years ago, in the Dapar era, when people were suffering from anarchy, brutality and oppression due to the oppression of King Kangs. Meanwhile, the prophecy of self-destruction in the hands of Devaki's eighth child seemed to terrify Kansaraja all the time.
As a result, he brutally killed every newborn child in his sister's womb. However, due to the transfer of the womb, the seventh child of Devaki was born in Rohini's womb. But in the end Krishna was born to destroy iniquity. However, in order to save his life, Basudev, on the instructions of Lord Vishnu, left the newly born child with his mother Yashoda on the night of Krishnapaksha's catastrophic catastrophe. Besides, the mother brought Yashoda's daughter.
Although Krishna was not found even after his birth, King Kangs ordered Putna Rakshasi to kill all the six-month-old children. In order to get the demon Putna to suck the breast as instructed by King Kangs, one by one the ruthless little children are killed. When Putna finally finds Krishna and goes to breastfeed him, at the age of only six months, little Krishna kills Putna by breastfeeding.
After that, regardless of the time, Lord Krishna has given the message of righteousness and good deeds by eliminating the evil people of the world including Kalia Nag, Raja Kangsa through various pastimes. He said, ‘Jada Yada Hi Dharmasya Glanirbhavati Bharat. Abhyutthanamdharmasya tadatmanang srijamyaham '.
In fact, this is the reason why Lord Krishna exists in the minds of all Hindus today. That is why Janmashtami is celebrated today centering on that holy day of his birth. On this day, a group of boys builds a high row of human pyramids to break the butter bones on a high rope. Then they broke the pot in a joint venture and distributed the butter to everyone.
Besides, the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna is celebrated on this day through jatras or songs, which is one of the main attractions of this festival. On this day, the followers of Lord Krishna bathe the Lord in fasting all day, swing him in the cradle, cook food for him, offer sacrifices to him and then take food themselves. Especially on this day, Mathura, Vrindavan and even many people celebrate it in their homes.
