About Lord Krishna

Bal Krishna

According to our Holy Scriptures, the birth of Lord Krishna took place under extraordinary circumstances. Krishna was an incarnation of Lord Vishnu who came to the world to get rid of all evil demons. He was born at midnight stroke on a dark, rainy night to 'Devaki' and 'Vasudev' who had been imprisoned by Devaki's brother Kansa. It had been foretold that the eighth son of Devaki would kill the evil king Kansa. Upon hearing this prophesy, Kansa had his sister put into prison. He killed her 6 children (7th child was Balaram who's embryo was transfered into Vasudev's first wife Rohini's womb by Yogmaya) one by one but when Krishna was born (the 8th Child), there was divine intervention to save the life of baby Krishna. The guards had fallen into deep slumber and were unable to inform their master about the new born child. Read more...
