Why Hindus Celebrates Krishan Janamasthmi.
When we think about Hindu rituals and festivals, the Krishna Janamasthami is the most important festival of India.
In this year 2018 Krishna Janamasthmi will be coming on the 3rd of September.
Basically Krishan Janamasthmi is a kind of local festival of Brij Bhoomi. Mathura and vrindavan or nearby cities is the place we called brij bhoomi. Reason behind the celebration is the Birthday of Lord Krishna the 8Th avatar of Lord Vishnu. According to the Hindu mythologies Lord Krishna took Birth in Mathura 5200 Years ago. His father and mother was a prisoner of his own uncle. Lord Krishna’s uncle (MAMA) was the king of Mathura. King of Mathura was told by the akash vani that his sister’s 8th son will be the reason of his death. Vasudave and daveki was the real parents of Lord Krishna. At the night of birth, vasudev took his own son(lord Krishna) and try to escape the prison to save his son from his uncle. He left his son at gokul village near Mathura at nand baba and yashoda’s house.
