Krishnaavatara

Sri Krishnastami – Krishna Jayanti – Gokulastami
Shravana Bahula Astami
Why Sri Krishnarghya to be given?
If we give Arghya on Krishna astami day or on Krishna Jayanthi day, we will get the punya equal to Samarpana of samastabhoomandala as per Bhavishyottara purana.
 
Sri Krishastami ಕೃಷ್ಣಾಷ್ಟಮಿ vratha is also Haridina just like Ekadashi. –
But the importance of performing one Srikrishnastami is equal to 20 crore Ekadashis.   We should not leave Krishnastami, saying that we are doing Ekadashi, and similarly we must not leave Ekadashi saying, by just doing Krishnastami we will be get all ekadashi phala.     So, we have to do both Krishnastami and Ekadashi Upavasa invariably.
 
Why we are giving more importance to Sri Krishnastami?   Why not Ramanavami? Buddhajayanthi? –
THERE IS NO BEDHA FOR DIFFERENT PARAMATHMA ROOPA/AVATAARA. We must not think of difference in Paramathma’s different roopa.  If we think it will be navavidha dwesha on paramathma.
 
Periodwise,  Sri Krishna is nearer to Kaliyuga.   Only on this day that we have to do upavasa and not on other bhagavadroopa jayanthi days.   Ofcourse Buddhavatara is more nearer to us than Krishnavatara.  Even though Buddhavatara is nearer to us, it was only for a short period and it was daitya mohaka roopa whereas Srikrishnavatara is Jnaana roopa.
 
What happens if we are not observing Upavasa on Krishnastami?
As per Bhavishyottara purana if we are not observing krishnastami vrata, we will become brahmarakshasa and he will born as Snake, tiger like wild animals. We will get  paapa  as if we are eating Maamsa if we not observing upavasa as per smruthi.

Mothers of Krishna paramaatma – 
Sri Krishna Paramathma had three mothers –
· All the three did the tapassu to get Krishna as their children.
  • Devaki became the mother by giving birth
  • Yashoda became his mother by giving breast milk
  • Rohini became his mother by virtue of Sri Krishna being born in Rohini Nakshatra
What is Krishna Astami  & what is Krishna Jayanti?-
As per sampradaya, the Sri Krishna Janmashtami is observed on the day when the ashtami tithi occurs at midnight. If the ashtami tithi AND the Rohini nakshatra occur on the same day, then the observance is considered to be doubly sacred; otherwise the observance is held on the day on which the ashtami prevails at midnight. 
 
Tithi – Shravana Krishna paksha Astami  it is Krishnastami.
If on that day if there is Rohini Nakshatra it is termed as Sri Krishna Jayanti.  It is the sacred day for all as it is on this day that Sri Krishna, who is not having the Praktuta shareera,  was born as a child of Devaki.

Krishna – Damodara –  Krishna is popularly called as Damodaraದಾಮ + ಉದರ = ದಾಮೋದರದಾಮ =ಹಗ್ಗ (rope) ಉದರ = ಸೊಂಟ  (waist). Krishna was a very naughty boy.  He used to lot of mischievous things in front of her mother and other Gopika strees.  Unable to control him, Yashoda tied Krishna to a grinding stone (ಒರಳುಕಲ್ಲು).  Initially she tried to tie him with the rope, which was shorter by two inches.   Again she added some more ropes, still it was short.  She went on joining ropes to the rope but each it was shorter by two inches.  Then she realised that Krishna, the paramathma can’t be bound by anyone.  Then Krishna allowed her to tie him to the grinder stone.    Then Krishna started moving in and around, the grinder also followed him as he was tied to it.  Krishna pulled and drags it through the two trees, which were standing close by in Vrundavana.   The two trees were Nalakuvara and Manigriva who were cursed (as they were taking bath without vastra) by Narada  Maharshi to become trees . They got Moksha when Krishna pulled the two trees down using the grinding stone.

Krishna’s astamahishiyaru and their santaana : Remaining 16100 were Agniputraas born as women just to have the sannidhana and samparka of Srihari.    Sri Krishna had from each of his 16108 wives 10 male and 1 female children.
