Krishna is also lovingly called Govinda, Balgopal, Jagadguru, Manmohan, Murlimanohar, Nand lal, Chitchhor , Kanhaiya, Murlidar among others. As we know that Krishna was born on the eight day of Krishna Paksha of the month of Bhadrapad in the kingdom of Mathura in prison.
Today the devotees are worship in Radhey- Krishna temples in different places in India. Especially, this celebration is celebrating in Mathura and vrindavan with loudly crowding.
It is story of born Lord krishna in prison. His mother was Devaki and father Basudev. While Devaki was pregnant, her brother Kansa kept them into prison and locked because he knew that her 8th son would kill him after his birth. To safeguard his life, he went on to mercilessly kill all the six children that Devaki had borne.
During the birth of Krishna, Vasudeva was guided by the lord to carry the baby to Vrindavan to the house of Nanda and Yasoda, and return with their girl child born on the same day to present her to King Kansa in the hope that he wouldn’t harm her because the prophecy had said that the eight ‘son’ would be the one to kill him.
But the merciless Kansa held the child and tried to throw her against a rock when she rose to the air taking the form of Goddess Durga and warning him about his death.
