Kansa, the ruler of Math­u­ra (in north­ern India) was an evil. On the day Kamsa’s sis­ter Devaki was mar­ried off to Vasude­va, an akash­vani or voice from the sky was heard proph­esy­ing that Devaki’s 8th son would be the destroy­er of Kam­sa. The fright­ened Kam­sa imme­di­ate­ly unsheathed his sword to kill his sis­ter but Vasude­va inter­vened and implored Kam­sa to spare his bride, and promised to hand over every new born child to him. Kam­sa relent­ed but impris­oned both Devaki and her hus­band Vasude­va.

When 8th child was born, Devaki and Vasude­va start­ed lament­ing its fate and theirs. Then sud­den­ly Lord Vish­nu appeared before them and said he him­self was com­ing to res­cue them and the peo­ple of Math­u­ra. He asked Vasude­va to car­ry him to the house of his friend, the cowherd chief Nan­da in Goku­la right after his birth, where Nanda’s wife Yashoda had given birth to a daugh­ter.

He was to exchange his boy and bring Yashoda’s baby daugh­ter back to the pris­on. Vish­nu assured them that “noth­ing shall bar your path”.

At mid­night on ash­tami, the divine baby was born in Kamsa’s pris­on. Remem­ber­ing the divine instruc­tions, Vasude­va clasped the child to his bosom and start­ed for Goku­la, but found that his legs were in chains. He jerked his legs and was unfet­tered! The mas­sive iron-barred doors unlocked and opened up.

While cross­ing river Yamu­na, Vasude­va held his baby high over his head.But the water made way for Vasude­va and mirac­u­lous­ly a five-mouthed snake fol­lowed him from behind and pro­vid­ed shel­ter over the baby.

When Vasude­va reached Goku­la, he found the door of Nanda’s house open. He exchanged the babies and hur­ried back to the pris­on of Kam­sa with the baby girl. Ear­ly in the morn­ing, all the peo­ple at Goku­la rejoiced the birth of Nanda’s beau­ti­ful male child. Vasude­va came back to Math­u­ra and as he entered, the doors of the pris­on closed them­selves.

When Kam­sa came to know about the birth, he rushed inside the pris­on and tried to kill the baby. But this time it skipped from his hand and reach­ing the sky. She was trans­formed into the god­dess Yoga­maya, who told Kam­sa: “O fool­ish! What will you get by killing me? Your neme­sis is already born some­where else.”

And lord krish­na son of devaki start­ed liv­ing his naughty child­hood with love of maa Yashoda .
