Meaning and Story of Krishna Janmashtami 2014 (Birthday of Krishna)

Jagadguru Kripalu Ji Maharaj devotees celebrate Janmashtami 2014 New York, at Radha Govind Dham

A Divine breeze permeated the entire brahmand with the descension of supreme God Krishna. His mother Deoki saw Him in His absolute Divine glory, lovingly smiling and standing in front of her in His full youthful form. In the meantime celestial gods and goddesses along with Brahma and Shiv came, sang homage to Krishna and returned to their abodes. Krishna then became like a day-old baby.

Deoki and Vasudeo were imprisoned by the demon Kans, the King of Mathura, because a celestial warning had informed him that the eighth son of Deoki would be his destroyer. But when Krishna appeared, a tiny touch of His Divine power shattered the defense system of the jail: locks broke, watchmen went into deep sleep, gates opened and all the restrictions were eliminated. The flooding Yamuna river gave way to Vasudeo so that he could safely transport baby Krishna to his relative Nand Baba's house which was in Gokul and on the other side of river Yamuna. Thus, Krishna first descended in Mathura and on the same night He came to Gokul. He appeared on the eighth waning moon night of bhadon (August) in Rohini Nakchatra (asterism) in 3228 BC.

The next day, at the house of Nand Baba and Yashoda all the Brajwasis came together to join the most joyous celebration of Krishna's birthday. God Shiv also came rushing to Gokul to see the innocent loving smile of baby Krishna, and, in this way, from the very first morning of His descension on the earth planet, His playful Divine loving leelas started. From that day on, every day in Braj was a joyous celebration and every moment in Braj was an experience of Krishna's ever-new and ever-increasing love that encharmed the heart of every Brajwasi.

A similar experience is expected to be evoked at Radha Govind Dham New York Janmashtami 2014 Block Party in Hillside Avenue, Glen Oaks.
