The specialty of our texts, Puranas, and the stories told in them is that they were not told for any particular time or place. It is alive like time in every era for centuries. Krishna janmashtami Shri Krishna’s birth story is as incredible and full of miracles as his life. Shri Krishna was born on Ashtami in the month of
Bhadrapada in the jail of Mathura. He was the eighth son of Devaki and Vasudeva. When Krishna was born, Mathura was ruled by his Mama Kansa. Kansa came to know in a prophecy that the eighth son of his sister Devaki would be the cause of his death. Therefore, Kansa imprisoned Devaki and Vasudeva, and immediately after birth started killing their children.
The divine birth – Krishna Janmashtami
After their seven sons were killed by Kansa, the prisoner couple was afraid to give birth to their eighth son. One night Lord Vishnu appeared before him. He told them that he would be born as their eighth son and would free him and the whole world from the atrocities of Kansa. The divine child was born. And after birth, Vasudeva was magically freed from all shackles. All the doors of the jail were opened automatically. As ordered by Lord Vishnu, Vasudev took Krishna to a house in Gokul, where he exchanged his child with the newborn girl of Yashoda and Nanda, and took that girl to jail. As soon as Kansa came to know about the birth, he again tried to kill the child. The child goes to heaven with bright light and transforms into Yogmaya and says “Hey Kansa what will you get by killing me? The one who killed you has already taken birth.

Krishna Janmashtami: Significance of the day
To understand why this timing is so important. We also have to understand the principle of astrology. Vaidvyas Ji had said this while explaining the position of the planets at that time. On the day of Shravan Krishna Ashtami at midnight, the Sun is in its zodiac and the Moon is exalted. Remember that this happens every year. On the midnight of Janmashtami, the Sun will be in its own zodiac and the Moon will be exalted in Rohini Nakshatra. And when the time came, it was said in the scriptures that time also represented a physical form, and he was called Kaal Purush. And in the famous book of astrology Jataka Parijat, it is clearly stated that Sun is the soul of Kaal Purush, and the Moon is his mind. Both the Universal Soul and the Universal Mind are available to us in their best form on the night of Janmashtami. If we learn to use this combination, we can get what we want or remove what we don’t want.
The word Janmashtami was used because Krishnan represents universal energy. And our ancient scientists knew this and that is why the center of our energy i.e. the temple opened only at midnight. So that we go to the temple and worship. When universal energy working on that principle is available, then that time is called Janmashtami.
