When and why Janmashtami is celebrated:-
The day of birth anniversary of Lord Shri Krishna is celebrated with great pomp.
Janmashtami festival is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Shri Krishna, which is celebrated on the Ashtami date of Krishna Paksha of Bhadrapada month after Rakshabandhan.
Shri Krishna was the 8th son of Devaki and Vasudeva. The king of Mathura city was Kansa, who was very tyrannical.
His atrocities were increasing day by day.
Once there was a voice from Akash that his sister Devaki’s 8th son would kill her.
Hearing this, Kansa put his sister Devaki along with her husband Vasudev in the dungeon. Kansa killed Devaki’s 7 children before Krishna.
When Devaki gave birth to Shri Krishna, Lord Vishnu ordered Vasudeva to take Shri Krishna to Yashoda Mata and Nanda Baba in Gokul, where he would be safe from his maternal uncle Kansa.
Shri Krishna was brought up under the supervision of Yashoda Mata and Nanda Baba. Just, in the joy of his birth, since then the festival of Janmashtami is celebrated every year.
