Bishwa Nath Singh :
As per Bhagwat Gita,whenever there is a decline of Dharma and the rise of Adharma, O Arjuna, then I appear or manifest myself. I appear from time to time for protecting the good, for transforming the wicked, and for es¬tablishing Dharma, th...e world order.Lord Krishna belonged to the royal family of Mathura, and was the eighth son born to the princess Devaki, and her husband Vasudeva. Mathura was the capital of the Yadavas, to which Krishna's parents Vasudeva and Devaki belonged to. The king Kamsa, Devaki's cousin , had ascended the throne by imprisoning his father, King Ugrasena. Afraid of a prophecy that predicted death of Kansa at the hands of Devaki's eighth son, he had locked the couple into a prison cell. After killing the first six children, and Devaki's apparent miscarriage of the seventh, being transfered to Rohini as Balarama, Krishna took birth. Since Vasudeva believed Krishna's life was in danger, Krishna was secretly taken out of the prison cell to be raised by his foster parents, Yasoda and Nanda in Gokula. Two of his other siblings also survived, Balarama and Subhadra. 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 River Yamuna that was in spate 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. 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. To commemorate the birth anniversary of the Lord, Rasa Lila or the dramatic performances of the life of Krishna are performed by devoteesThe whole of Braj is the leela place of Krishna but more memorable places are Barsana, Vrindaban and Govardhan. Barsana is the place where the sovereign of Gopis’ hearts, and the soul of Krishna, Radha, always lived there. Vrindaban is famous because maharas leela happened over there, and Govardhan is the place where Krishna did most of His playful leelas with His Gwalbal while grazing the cows. The leelas of Krishna are categorized as: (1) Braj leela, (2) nikunj leela, and (3) Dwarika leela. They revealed such loving leelas that fascinated even Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati and Goddess Laxmi Rasa Lila took place on a beautiful night, when the ‘Gopis’ (milkmaids) of Vrindavan stealthily left their houses to go to the jungle on hearing the sweet sound of Lord Krishna’s flute. Lord Krishna then danced with gopis throughout the night Rasa Lila is based on the legendary love story of Radha Krishna. The loving interplay between God and the human soul is interpreted through Lord Krishna and his love play with the Gopies. The blissful love of Radha for Krishna can be seen as the soul’s wish to be one with the Almighty. Though Radha never married Krishna, her love for him was so complete and pure that even today we worship Krishna along with Radha. This love story has been called ‘Rasa’ by the great Rishi VyasaThe Bhagavad Gita or Gita is a most sacred text for Hindus, a discourse of Baghwan Krishna himself The Bhagavad Gita is considered among the most important texts in the history of literature and philosophy. It comprises seven hundred verses, and is a part of the Mahabharata. The content of the Gita is the conversation between Lord Krishna and Warrior Arjuna taking place on the battlefield before the start of the Kurukshetra war. Lord Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior and prince and elaborates on different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies. Gita often being described as a concise guide to Hindu theology and also as a practical, self- contained guide to life. During the discourse, Lord Krishna reveals His identity as the Supreme Being Himself. The direct audience to Lord Krishna’s discourse of the Bhagawata Gita included Arjuna, Sanjay and Lord Hanuman (perched atop Arjuna’s chariot) and Barbarika, son of Ghatotghaj. during 18 days of Kurukhsetra war. The Bhagavad Gita represent a summary of the Upanishadic teachings, it is also called "the Upanishad of the Upanishads. Lord Krishna states that the knowledge of Yoga contained in the Gita was first instructed to mankind at the very beginning of their existence He taught the supreme truths of Yoga, Bhakti and Vedanta to Arjuna and Uddhava. He had mastery over the sixty-four arts. That is why He is regarded as an Avatara with sixteen Kalas or powers. Every word of Lord Krishna's teachings and every act of His is full of sublime and grand object-lessons of momentous import to humanity in a variety of waysLet us join to pay our humble obeisances to Lorsd Krishna who is our savior and imbibe his teachings in our life to get salvation when we die.
