India is a spiritual country and this spiritual culture makes India special and different from other countries. If you take spiritualism from India then India will no longer be India. This is the heart of India. No one can live without heart. So Lord Krishna has given us Ramayana and Mahabharata. These are the epics of India. He has given us a way to live. These are not just books or related to just one religion or school. They are so meaningful and they are deeply intertwined with our entire culture and heritage.
Ramayana and Mahabharata play an important role in our daily life. In our country people read and discuss Ramayana and Mahabharata in every house. The beauty of these books is that they are not limited to a single moment, they affect every situation. Even nowadays people follow the ideas of Gita in our life and Gita is formed through Mahabharata. So we can say that Lord Krishna has given a lot to our culture, heritage and country.
We celebrate Janmashtami every year. Lord Krishna was born on this day. Lord Krishna is a bliss and his birth gives purity, joy and happiness. So by celebrating Janmashtami we express our happiness and devotion towards Lord Krishna. This festival is celebrated with joy and gaiety because Lord Krishna was born on this holy soul. On this day our joy is doubled and this will be the proof of the birth of Lord Krishna. Lord Krishna was not born but he appeared on this day. Once Krishna says “Anyone can see me, I am present everywhere, I am settled in the ear”. You just need to recognize Lord Krishna, He is everywhere. If you recognize God then you will give proof of beautiful creation and you will get inner joy of living. On Janmashtami someone says that if you want to meet Lord Krishna then your heart and soul should be pure and you have become an innocent child with a pure heart.
Significance of Janmashtami
Kansa, the tyrannical ruler of Mathura, vows to kill all the children of his sister Devaki and husband Vasudeva as he learns through Akashvani or voice from the sky that Devaki and Vasudeva’s son will kill him. From that day he imprisons his sister and her husband and starts brutally killing all the newborn babies of his sister. In this way he kills about 7 sons of his sister Devaki. On the auspicious midnight of Ashtami, when Lord Krishna was born with the blessings of Lord Vishnu, the infant Krishna was born in Kansa’s prison, where his mother and father were impressed. With the help of Akashvani Vasudeva, unrestricted from the chains of the prison, he will be able to take Krishna safely to Nanda’s house in Gokul. There Nandlal and Yashoda take care of Lord Krishna. As a child, Lord Krishna used to charm all the people and mesmerize people with his playfulness, his mischievousness and his loving sweetness. He is filled with divine love and dances happily through divine life. In the end, Krishna kills the cruel Kansa and his allies and frees Mathura from his tyranny.
Today on the occasion of Janmashtami, you should feel the loving Krishna within you. Let love blossom in your heart and start giving love to all. Kill all the fears within you as Krishna kills Kansa. When the heart is full of love, and there is joy in the mind, then the healthy body will feel like heaven on earth. Live a fickle life, and don’t fall into the trap of fear.
