Janmashtami 2022: The birth anniversary of Krishna has a special significance in Hinduism. According to the Hindu calendar, the birth festival of Lord Shri Krishna is celebrated every year in Rohini Nakshatra along with the Ashtami date of Krishna Paksha of Bhadrapada month.
This year, the festival of Krishna’s birth anniversary will be celebrated on Thursday, August 18. On the day of Krishna Janmashtami, the Bal Gopal form of Lord Krishna is worshiped by law. In Krishna Janmashtami, it is believed that Lord Krishna is worshiped at night. It is said that Lord Krishna was born in the night, that is why he is worshiped during the night.
According to Hindu belief, the main reason behind Shri Krishna taking birth in the night on Ashtami Tithi is that he is Chandravanshi. Shri Krishna is Chandravanshi, his ancestor Chandradev and Mercury is the son of Moon, so Lord Shri Krishna chose the time to take his incarnation at night. Let us know from Pandit Govind Pandey of Lucknow that what is the main reason for Shri Krishna to be born in the night.
That’s why took birth in the night
Lord Krishna is the eighth son of Devaki and the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Govind Pandey tells that the biggest reason behind Lord Krishna being born in the night is that he is a Chandravanshi. Just as Lord Rama is Suryavanshi, he was born in the morning, similarly Lord Krishna is Chandravanshi because he was born in the night. The moon emerges in the night, so he was born in the night and was born in the presence of his ancestor.
It was also the wish of the ancestor Chandradev that if Lord Vishnu is taking birth in my family as Krishna, then I can have a direct vision of it. It is mentioned in the mythological scriptures that at the time of Krishna incarnation, the whole atmosphere from the earth world to the space was filled with gaiety.
This was also a reason
Lord Krishna was born in the prison. Lord Krishna also chose midnight to leave the prison of Kansa. So that his father could send him to a safe place, so when Krishna was born, only then the gates of the prison opened and the soldiers fell into a deep sleep. Then his father Vasudev went back to the prison, after reaching Gokul safely.
