Significance of Krishna Janmashtami

According to Hinduism’s holy writings, Lord Sri Krishna was born on the eighth day of the dark part of the month of Bhadrapada. This happened in the town of Mathura to parents Devaki and Vasudeva. Devaki was the sister of Mathura’s demon king, Kansa. A prophecy said that Kansa would be defeated by Devaki’s eighth son. To avoid this, Kansa imprisoned Devaki and Vasudeva and tried to kill their children to stop the prophecy.

When Devaki gave birth to her eighth son, the whole palace fell asleep by magic. Vasudeva protected the baby from Kansa by taking him to Yashodha and Nanda’s house in Vrindavan during the night. This baby was Lord Vishnu’s form and was named Sri Krishna. He eventually defeated Kansa, ending his frightening rule.
