Let us tell you today some stories related to Krishna…

***Stories of lord shree krishna***

1. Krishna and Kalia Nag.

There was a beautiful freshwater lake connected by the river Yamuna.  Somewhere a very poisonous snake came and lived there, whose name was Kalia.  Kalia's poison was rapidly dissolving in the water of Yamuna river. Once a cow grazing person drank the water of that lake, he died.  When Lord Krishna came to know about this, he made the person alive with his power.
After that Shri Krishna jumped into the water of that lake.  Krishna went deep into the water and started calling that snake loudly.  When Krishna did not come out of the water for too long, the people of the village gathered and waited for him by the river.  Many people also started getting scared.  After some time, the Kalia snake came from inside the water in front of Krishna and on coming he attacked Krishna. In a short while, Krishna grabbed Kalia and climbed his head.  Kalia was a snake with a thousand heads.  Krishna started dancing fast on his head and due to the fast dancing, the blood of Kalia snake started coming out.  Seeing this, Kalia's wife came above the water and begged for Kalia's life. Krishna asked them to leave the Yamuna river  and go to the Ramanika dweep.  At the same time, Krishna assured Kalia that Garuda would never attack him now because Krishna's footprints had print on Kalia's head. Kalia was overjoyed to hear this and left that beautiful lake in the river Yamuna and left with his wife.  Thus Krishna protected the village from Kalia snake.

2 . Krishna and Govardhan mountain .

Once upon a time, Devraj Indra was very angry with the people of  Braj because people were listening to Lord Krishna and worshiping Govardhan Parvat and not worshiping Indra Dev.  Enraged, Indra sent clouds to rain heavily to punish them, causing the possibility of flooding throughout Vrindavan.
Let's say, the black clouds over Vrindavan started raining heavily.  Most people's houses were washed away due to excessive rainfall and floods. The people of Vrindavan got scared and all reached the shelter of Lord Krishna.  Lord Krishna had known everything about this situation.  At the same time Krishna lifted the entire Govardhan mountain like an umbrella on the little finger of his left hand. All the people and cows of Vrindavan started coming down one by one under the Govardhan mountain and thus Krishna saved the lives of the people of Vrindavan.  The people of Vrindavan were surprised to see this amazing  miracle of Krishna.  Seeing the power of Lord Krishna, the clouds returned and the residents of Vraj started living happily.

3 . Lord Krishna and Arishthasura 

Once a big bull entered Vrindavan and suddenly started attacking the people of the village.  The bull broke the house of many people due to which many people were also hurt. When Krishna came to know about this, he immediately approached the bull.  Shri Krishna discovered that the bull is a demon.  The name of that asura was Arishthasura.  On seeing Krishna, he ran to attack Krishna rapidly. Lord Krishna defeated him with his power.  As soon as he was defeated, the bull sat down in front of Lord Krishna.  He then told Krishna that he was a disciple of guru Brihaspati and had been cursed to become an asura bull due to mistreating his guru.  Thus Krishna saved the people of Braj from Arishthasura.

4 . Makhanchor lord Krishna

You must have known that Lord Krishna loved eating Makhan.  Because of Krishna stealing Makhan, his mother as well as all the people of Vrindavan got fed up due to Krishna stealing Makhan.  Lord Krishna's mother Yashoda used to hang Makhan's Matki in the upper part of the roof so that Krishna could not reach there and steal Makhan by eating it. Once, Yashoda Ma left home due to some urgent work.  At that time Krishna brought all his friends there.  With their help, he reached Makhan's Matki and broke Makhan's Matki and ate all Makhan.  Yashoda mother reached there at the same time.  All of Krishna's companions fled, but Krishna remained there.  After that Krishna got a good scolding from Yashoda's mother.

5 . Lord Krishna and a woman selling fruits

Once a woman was selling fruits.  While she was passing in front of Shri Krishna's house, Shri Krishna felt like eating some fruit.  When Krishna asked for some fruit from the woman who sold the fruit, she asked Krishna for something in return. Krishna went running inside the house to give food grains instead of fruits and came back to the fruit seller with a handful of grains.  But as he came, the whole grain fell from his hands. Krishna repeatedly goes inside the house and tries to bring some grains in his hand, but the whole grain would fall down.  She was very happy to see this and gave all the fruits to Krishna. Krishna was very happy with that woman.  When she went from Krishna's house containing her empty crate  and reached her home, she saw that her basket was full of gold and jewels.

6 .  Why Krishna called as Govinda

One day a cow named Kamadhenu came from heaven to Lord Krishna.  That cow told Krishna that she had come to anoint him from the Dev Lok because Krishna is protecting the cows on earth. The cow bathed Krishna with holy water and thanked him wholeheartedly.  At the same time, Lord Indra, seated on his elephant Airavat, appeared there and blessed Shri Krishna and said that people of the whole world will know you by the name of Govinda for these virtuous works.

7. Krishna and Putna 

The slaughter of Krishna's maternal uncle Kansa was decided by Lord Krishna.  After knowing this, Kansa used to send different asuras to slay Krishna.  Once Kansa sent a demon named Pootana.  Pootna reached Vrindavan and changed the disguise of a beautiful woman and started looking for Krishna in every house. At that time Krishna was very young.  When she reached Krishna's house, she recognized Krishna and picked up her lap for feeding  poisonous milk .  When she started feeding her poisonous milk to Krishna, she felt that Krishna would die as soon as he was drinking milk, but Krishna continued to drink milk till the demon woman died.  As soon as she died, she came into her real cruel form.

Interesting mythology of Kanha and Kumhar


Prabhu Shri Krishna has done many leela with the gopis.  Shri Krishna used to break the gopis's matki and steal makhan(butter )and the gopis went to Yashoda Maiya with complain of Shri Krishna.  This happened many times. Once upon a time, Yashoda Maiya got fed up with the complain of Lord Krishna and ran towards Shri Krishna with a stick.  When Prabhu saw his mother in anger, he started running to defend himself.  While running, Shri Krishna reached a Kumhar (potter).
The potter was busy making his clay pots.  But as soon as the potter saw Shri Krishna, he was very happy.  The potter knew that Shri Krishna is  God.  Then the Lord said to the potter, 'Potter, today my mother is very angry with me.  Maiya is following me with a stick.  Brother, hide me somewhere. '
Then the potter hid Shri Krishna under a pot with a big pot.  In a few moments, Maiya Yashoda also came there and started asking the potter - 'O the potter!  You have seen my Kanhaiya somewhere, what?
The potter said - 'No, mother!  I did not see Kanhaiya. '  Shri Krishna was listening to all these things hidden under a big pot.  Maiya left from there.
Now Lord Shri Krishna says to the potter - 'Potter, if my mother is gone, take me out of this pitcher.'
 The potter said - 'Not like this, Lord!  First promise  me to be freed from the bondage of 84 lakh yonis. '
God smiled and said - 'Okay, I promise to free you from eighty-four million yonis.  Take me out now. '
The potter started saying - 'I am not alone, Lord!  If you promise to free all the families of my family from the bond of eighty-four million yonis, then I will drive you out of this pitcher. '
Prabhu ji says - 'Come on, I promise to release them from the bond of eighty-four million yonis.  Now get me out of the pitcher. '
Now the potter says - 'Just, Lord!  There is one more request.  Promise to complete it too, then I will drive you out of the pitcher. '
God said - 'Tell me what you want to say.'
 The potter started saying - 'Lord!  The soil under the pitcher under which you are hidden has been loaded by my oxen.  Promise to free my bulls from the bond of eighty-four.
Pleased with the love of the potter, the Lord also promised to free those bulls from the bond of the eighty-four.
 Lord said - 'Now all your wishes are fulfilled, now let me out of the pitcher.'
Then the potter says - 'Not now, God!  That is, one last wish.  Complete that too and that is this - whatever creature will listen to this dialogue between us, you will also free it from the bond of eighty-four million lives.  Just give this promise, then I will drive you out of this pitcher.
Hearing the love of the potter, Lord Krishna was very happy and promised to fulfill this wish of the potter.
Then the potter drove the child Shri Krishna out of the pitcher.  Prostrated at his feet.  Prabhu's feet washed and took Charanamrit.  Sprinkled Charanamrit in his entire hut and cried so much in the embrace of Lord that he merged with God.
Just think, the child Krishna who could lift the  mountain on his own finger, could he not lift a pitcher?
But Natwar Nand Kishore is not be happy  without love.  No matter how many Yajnas, rituals, donations, no matter how much they do devotion, Lord Krishna cannot be found unless there is love for mere beings in the mind.

Everyone knows that Shri Krishna is also called Chhaliya.  Krishna vowed that he would not take up arms in the war of Mahabharata nor directly participate in the war.  But indirectly, Krishna helped the Pandavas many times.  Know how to fulfill own promise made to the Pandavas.
Asking Barbarik for his torso: Barbarik was the son of Ghatotkacha, he pleased Maa Kamakhya and received from him the boon of three impenetrable arrows, who were able to make him victorious in all three worlds.  Shri Krishna, taking a brahmin form, asked Barbarik for his head, so that the Pandavas could win this war.
To get killed Ghatotkacha by saving Arjuna from the divine power of Karna: Krishna had instilled fear for Ghatotkacha in Duryodhana's mind. Therefore, Karna killed Ghatotkacha by unfailing power at the behest of Duryodhana. Karna had this immense power saved for Arjuna but Duryodhana, who was afraid of Ghatotkacha, asked Karna to use this power.  It was a power whose attack could never be vacated.
Getting Jarasandha slaughtered: When Jarasandha's body was rejoined even after had broken by Bheema, the body in the two parts of Jarasandha in battle, it was Sri Krishna who broke the straw and threw it in different directions.  After which Bhima ripped Jarasandha's body and threw it in opposite directions.
Get Bhishma Pitamah killed by Shikhandi: Krishna knew that Bhishma Pitamah had vowed not to attack on the woman.  So Krishna made the Pandavas aware of this subject, and the Pandavas sent Shikhandi in front of Pitamaha's chariot and killed him by Arjuna's arrows on Krishna's advice.

To get kill Jayadratha by hiding Suryadev: After Abhimanyu was killed, Arjuna vowed to kill Jayadratha before sunset the next day, otherwise promised to take Agnisamadhi.  On which Kauravas hid Jayadratha in the rear of the army. Then Krishna did sunset from his maya and the hidden Jayadratha came out to see Arjuna taking Agnisamadhi, at the same time the sun came out again by the grace of Shri Krishna and immediately Arjun trampled everyone and killed Jayadratha and dropped his head into his father lap.
Gesture to kill Duryodhana: At the time of the battle of Bhima and Duryodhana, Shri Krishna made a gesture of slapping on thigh , then Bhima did gada attack on the thigh of Duryodhana . It was only Krishna who knew that his body was like iron, except for Duryodhana's thigh.
When Krishna broke his vow in Mahabharata ...
It is say that Shri Krishna did not take any weapon  in the battle of Mahabharata.  He only accepted the idea of ​​ becoming Arjuna's charioteer and gave his advice  throughout the war, but is this really true?  Two arguments are given behind this matter.  It all starts when Duryodhana was showing anger at Bhishma Pitamah.  The reason was that not a single Pandava was dead.
Now there are also two stories about what Bhishma answered to Duryodhana.  According to the first story, Bhishma gets angry and gives 5 gold arrows to Duryodhana after reciting the mantra and says that tomorrow will be the end of the Pandavas.  On this, Duryodhana keeps arrows with him.  When Shri Krishna finds this, he sends Arjuna to Duryodhana.
It is famous in the stories that Arjun had saved Duryodhana's life and Duryodhana had promised Arjun that he could ask for anything from him.  In this, Krishna told Arjuna to ask for five gold arrows from Duryodhana.  Duryodhana gives it. Bhishma Pitamah gets angry with this and fights to kill Arjuna.  Arjun does not stand in front of Bhishma and falls.  At that time, Shri Krishna lifts the broken wheel of the chariot and proceeds to kill Bhishma, though Arjuna stops him and later Bhishma falls from the chariot and falls on the arrows, but still Krishna takes the weapon.
In the second story, the story is the same, but Bhishma promises Duryodhana that he will make Draupadi a widow by killing five Pandavas.  When Krishna comes to know about this, he asks Draupadi to touch Bhishma's feet without telling who she is. Draupadi does this and Bhishma blesses her to be always  suhaagan and live long.  When he come to know the truth, he is angry with Krishna.  At that time Krishna says that if your vow is broken because of me then my vow will be broken because of you.  And only then he lift the wheel of the chariot to save Arjun.
Krishna died due to curse ...
In the battle of Mahabharata, 100 sons of Gandhari died.  When Shri Krishna reached Gandhari, the unhappy Gandhari cursed him that in after 36 years he would be killed and with him the Yadu dynasty would be destroyed.
Shri Krishna knew that the Yadu dynasty has now come to greed and fascination.  So he just said thaastu.  The second curse was received from sage Durvasa.  Durvasa Rishi told Krishna to apply Kheer in his whole body.  Krishna did just this, leaving only his feet.  Angered by this, Durvasa cursed that Krishna would die because of his feet. Once when Shri Krishna was in the Samadhi, a hunter, Jara, considered Krishna's leg as an animal and shot an arrow at him.

16,108 queens of Krishna ..

They all know that Krishna had 16108 queens and 80 children, but why Krishna had only eight patranis(main queen)?  Actually, Rukmani, Satyabhama, Jambavati, Nagnajiti, Kalindi, Mitravrinda, Bhadra and Lakshmana were the main queens of Krishna. Krishna had 10 children from every queen.  The remaining 16100 women were rescued by Krishna from a demon Narakasura and sent to their respective homes. Someone's family did not adopt them, then Shri Krishna married them, but never made any relationship.

Why Krishna turned against his own army…
Before the war of Mahabharata, both Duryodhana and Arjuna went to Krishna for help.  When both arrived, Krishna was sleeping.  Duryodhana stood near Krishna's head and Arjuna folded his hands near his feet. When Krishna woke up, he saw Arjuna and said to support him.  Duryodhana was angry at this and said that he had come earlier and Krishna should support him.  On this, Krishna said that he has seen Arjuna before, so both will have to help.  Krishna gave his army to Duryodhana on this and became the charioteer of Arjuna.


Yogeshwar Shri Krishna has been presenting life philosophy to the public since time immemorial.  His playful childhood or the perfect ideal life, his miracles or his preaching of dharma and karma given by him to Arjuna in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.  The reflection of Shri Krishna's personality is present in every particle. Shrikrishna Nishkam Karmayogi, an ideal philosopher, situated knowledge and a great man equipped with divine wealth.  Sri Krishna was born in this land of India some 5,200 years ago (Dwaparyuga).  According to Hinduism, Lord Krishna was the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, one of the Trideva.  Sri Krishna has been ranked as the best man of the Dvaparyuga, Yugapurusha or Yugavatara.  The character of Krishna is written elaborately in the Shrimad Bhagavat and Mahabharata, composed by Maharishi Ved Vyasa, contemporary of Sri Krishna. In the present-day philosophy of Shri Krishna is as relevant as it was in Dwaparyuga.  In the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Shri Krishna has explained the dharma in detail - the person who follows the dharma, the dharma also protects it and the one who does not follow the dharma and consumes unrighteousness, dharma also does not protect it. Just as Sri Krishna explained dharma in detail in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, similarly Karma has also fully described it.  Through the Gita, Shri Krishna inspired Arjuna to do unattached karma i.e. 'karma without wishing for results. Sri Krishna was a complete yogi and also was warrior.  Each of his forms is beautiful.  His childish form is so adorable that he has become an ideal of childhood.  That is why this form of Shri Krishna is worshiped on Janmashtami, in which he steal Makhan and eat Makhan, break the gopis's matki, and also killed Asuras with fun. On the banks of the Yamuna and in the forests of the Yamuna itself, Krishna along with the cow and gopis, in the childhood, killed Pootana slaughter, Shaktasura slaughter, Yamalarjuna moksha, Kaliya Daman, Dhenuk slaughter, Pralamb slaughter, Arishta slaughter, Kalayavan slaughter etc.  Kansa was killed in his teens with older brother Baldev. In the same way, his Raslila, loving nature towards Gopis is also adorable.  Similarly, his Yogeshwar form and the guiding form of Arjuna in the Mahabharata fascinate and inspire everyone.  In his leelas he is Makhanchor, Arjuna's guru & guide, poor Sudama's best friend, Draupadi's protector, Radhaji's prince,  ending Indra's pride as became Govardhandhaari.  All his forms and all his works are his leelas.  His leelas are so multifaceted that he is called Leelapurushottam in Sanatan texts.

I have tried to write about Lord Krishna on the occasion of Janmashtami. But the more I write and tell about Krishna, the less it seems. It is so versatile that there are stories full of mythology and folklore. Krishna's life is so multicolored that no one on this earth has lived such a life like him, every story of life cannot be connected without him. As I have told before that it is impossible to write everything about him. So through this blog  I will keep writing stories related to him from time to time. Do read every article of this blog.  Must visit every label .... thanks

What is the reason behind offering sindoor to Hanuman ji?


What is the reason behind offering sindoor to Hanuman ji?  Know here

Why Hanuman ji is offered sindoor, know- religious significance

Sindoor has great importance in Hinduism.  Sindoor is considered to be auspicious.  Sindoor is also very fond by Hanumanji. Though many Gods and Goddesses like Ganeshji, Mataji and Bhairav ​​Maharaj are offered sindoor, but Hanumanji is mainly offered sindoor.  Today I am telling you that why sindoor is offered to Hanumanji?
Hanumanji is a dear devotee of Shriramji.  Hanumanji also takes the same thing from which Shri Ramji benefits.  Rama and Sita always sit in his heart.  He is ready to do anything to get the blessings of Lord Rama.

Sri Hanuman, the supreme devotee of Lord Rama, is the one who imparts strength, wisdom and knowledge. Devotees offer sindoor to their adorable Sri Hanuman with great love.  It is believed that offering sindoor pleased Bajrang Bali. But have you ever wondered why Hanuman ji is offered sindoor and why does he always wear a sindoor colored cloth?  Though sindoor is a symbol of good luck and energy, but two stories are popular about offering sindoor to Hanuman ji. Lord Hanuman is an ardent devotee of Shri Rama.  Hence he is also called Rambhakta Hanuman.  Worshiping Lord Hanuman, the supreme devotee of Shri Rama, removes every obstacle in life.  Lord Hanuman is worshiped on Tuesday.  Many people offer sindoor to Hanuman ji on completion of the vow.

There are two very interesting stories behind offering sindoor to Lord Hanuman.  Which only few people know.

According to this legend, Lord Hanuman once saw Mother Sita applying vermilion in her forehead.  Seeing this, he wonderfully asked her why she had applied this sindoor on her forehead. Sita ji while answering the question of Brahmachari Hanuman said that by applying sindoor, my lord (Husband) has longevity and he remains happy .  She also said that my husband is be pleased on me. Hanuman ji was very happy to hear this.  He thought that if Shri Ram could be happy with sindoor with little quantity , then if I applied sindoor on the whole body, he would be very happy with me also and by applying sindoor on the whole body, Shri Ram would become immortal. Hanuman ji presented himself in front of Shri Ram by applying sindoor on the whole body.  When he reached the meeting, Shri Ram started laughing at seeing him and was very happy to see Hanuman ji's love.  Seeing Sri Rama happy, Hanuman ji became strongly convinced of Sita ji's words.  For this reason, sindoor is offered to the devotee Hanuman.
Ramji was shocked when he saw Hanuman in this form.  When Rama asked Hanuman the reason for applying sindoor all over his body, Hanumanji clearly said that this will make you immortal and I too will get your affection like mother Sita.  Hearing this, Shrirama got emotional and embraced Hanumanji.  Since That Time, sindoor is very dear to Hanumanji and Hanumanji is happy on offering sindoor.
If we talk about scientific vision, then according to science, every color has a special type of energy.  The sindoor is a symbol of energy and when the devotee tilak(applying sindoor on head) with it after offering Hanumanji, the energy center between the two eyes becomes active.  Doing this brings good thoughts to the mind.  At the same time, the energy of God is attained by offering ghee mixed sindoor to Hanumanji, obstacles are eliminated.
According to another story, when Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya with his wife Sita after the Lanka victory, the monkey army was given a farewell.  Mother Sita took off the garlands studded with precious pearls and diamonds from her neck and wore him while giving  presents to Hanuman ji. Lord Rama was not mentioned in any of the beads or diamonds of the garland.  Therefore Hanuman ji was not happy.  Then Sita ji applied sindoor on the forehead of Hanuman ji.  Sita ji told Hanuman ji that she does not have anything more important than this.  Since then Hanuman ji started to be offered sindoor.  Sindoor is a symbol of boundless energy.  This brings positiveness in life.  Hanuman ji gets positive energy by offering sindoor and oil , red cloth and touching the idol.  People who are suffering from Shani Dev must offer oil and sindoor to Bajrang Bali.
Sindoor is also given great importance in Hinduism.  According to Indian tradition, sindoor is considered the crown of any suhagan's (married wowam whose husband is alive) forehead.  Sindoor is also used for the well-being of married life.  It is said that sindoor is mainly orange in color.  Women use it for good luck and makeup.  A marriage without sindoor cannot be imagined.  It is linked to Mars.  Therefore it is considered to be auspicious.

Why did Bhishma have to lie on the bed of arrows .



Why did Bhishma have to lie on the bed of arrows .

Hello friends

                    Pitamah Bhishma One of the characters in the Mahabharata, known for his  brahmcharya(celibacy) vows and muscle power, who devoted his entire life to the service of Hastinapur, while he could sit on the throne if he wanted.  But he kept his word throughout his life.  But still he had to lie on the bed of the arrows.  But why...?

According to the story: -

        When the war of Mahabharata ended and the Pandavas became the conquerors, all the Pandavas, including Krishna, reached there to seek blessings from Bhishma where the pitamah Bhishma was lying on the bed of the arrows. And when all the returning to met Bhishma, then the pitamah Bhishma stopped Lord Krishna and ordered all the others to leave.  Pitamah called to Shri Krishna and said, "O Madhusudan, you are omnipresent. You are the lord of creation. Please tell me which of my deeds I am suffering unbearable pain on the bed of arrows in this way.
Listen to whom Lord Krishna said, "O Pitamah, you yourself are wise. Do you not remember the deeds of your previous birth? Then Bhishma said that" I remember the deeds of my last 100 births in which I have never done any bad deeds . Then Shri Krishna says that "O Pitamah you are absolutely right, but do you remember your 101st birth which Bhishma was surprised to hear because he remembered the deeds of a hundred births, how could he not remember his 101st birth? Then Bhishma said, "O Madhusudan, please tell me what abominable deeds I had done on the my previous 101st birth. What was the reason of this my plight .
Then Shrikrishna said "Listen carefully pitamah, you were a prince at birth in last 101. And you were very fond of playing hunting. Once you were going through a forest, you stopped in the shade of a tree to rest and after a while, when you were ready to walk, a Karkata from above meant that a multi-legged animal fell on your horse's neck which you lifted with own arrows and threw it back and went from there. But when you threw that Karkata back, he fell backwards into the thorn bushes and countless thorns of bushes spear into his back, whatever he tried to get out of that bush,  thats thorns would have given more trouble. He lived in the same condition for 58 days and he kept praying to God day and night that you should die in the same way as I am dying in the year of suffering.
But your virtuous deeds were so strong in that birth that the sin could not be brought to mature.  Hearing this, Pitamah questioned that "Madhusudan if that sin did not result in that birth, then why did it happen in this birth?", Shri Krishna said, "Pitamah, when Duryodhana had tried to Chirharan of Draupadi in assembly, if you want , you could have stopped it, but you didn't it.  Because of which all your virtues have waned and the sin of 101st birth has a chance to come to mature.  Because the results of karma is suffered at some time or another time.

The war of Mahabharata lasted for 18 days, out of which Bhishma fought for 10 days.  The Pandavas, troubled by the war skills of Pitamah, then  Bhishma himself told the remedy for his death. Bhishma Pitamah stayed on the arrows of the bed for 58 days, but due to the blessing of desire death of his father, he did not give up his life and on the utrayan of the sun and on the day of Makar Sankranti, he gave up his life as he wished. It is believed that at the time when the war of Mahabharata was going on, Arjuna's age was 55 years, Shri Krishna's age was 83 and Pitamah Bhishma was about 150 years old.

Hanuman ji's role in Mahabharata

What was the importance of Hanuman present on Arjuna's chariot? 

Hanuman ji is the most popular god of entire India.  There is hardly any village where there is no Hanuman temple.  His great popularity in his youth is due to his strength, wisdom and knowledge and he is the giver of all these.  Which is most important for the youth.


Hanuman ji's role in Mahabharata

In those times people used some flags, like every political party uses a flag today.  The Congress party uses the flag bearing the 'claw' symbol, the other party uses the 'lotus flower' symbol.  Similarly, in ancient times, they used Hanuman because it is a sign of victory and Krishna chose it because whatever action Krishna took in his hands, he always won.

He told Arjuna "It would be better if you accept Hanuman as the flag", so he chose Hanuman.  He listened attentively to Shri Krishna.

Hanuman was a symbol of victory in the previous era, when Rama fought the most prosperous state of Sri Lanka, he fought that battle with a less of Vaanar soldiers, his team was very weak.  And the party that was against them was very powerful who had a lot of power and wealth. It is said, Sri Lanka was so rich in those days that the roof of every house was made of gold there.  It was the city of gold.  The pillars of each house were filled with precious stones. So when Ram went to Sri Lanka with Lakshmanan, he said that 'this city is incredible!  But even though it is very full of gold and very rich, I would still like to visit my motherland.  For me, my motherland is better than heaven. ' Therefore Lord Rama went back to Ayodhya after winning the war.  Hanuman was a symbol of victory over direct weakness.  One who looks physically weak but spiritually powerful.
The Pandavas were only five and the Kauravas were hundred.  It was not equal in any way for the fight, there should be equal number of people on both sides to fight.  Therefore, to give justice, moral and emotional strength to Arjuna, Krishna said, 'We keep Hanuman as our flag.  So think that if they can do this, then you can do it now.

 Krishna always used to say this.

This has happened in the context of Mahabharata, let us understand it through a story now.

Success mantra: learn by mistake and proceed success.
Human beings work very hard to get ahead in life.  But when he does not know how to succeed, he gets frustrated, stops working.  If we look at this from another point of view then the failures in our life give us experience and protect us from making mistakes.  Therefore, a man should never be discouraged, he should keep working hard.  One day it will come that the fruits of hard work will turn into success.  This is the story of Arun.
Arun enthusiastically prepared for the exam.  Despite this, he could not top it and he remained very depressed and disappointed.  In the grief of failure, he gave up trying as before.  When Arun's trouble was found out by his teacher, who was his guide, he called him to his house one day.  He asked Arun the reason for the problem.  Arun told them that 'he worked hard day and night but the results did not come as he wanted, so he is desperate.
After listening to Arun, the teacher asked him to walk in the garden with him.  He took it to the tomato plants and said that look at this spoiled and dead tomato plant. When I had sown this plant, I watered it from time to time, also fertilized and pesticide.  Sprayed, but still it damaged .  So what ?, Arun said.  After giving so much hard work, so much money and time, if we do not get the result we want, then what is the benefit of doing so much?
The teacher said that it is not so and pointing to a door, he said that once you open this door and look.  Arun opened the door and saw that there were huge tomatoes in front of him.  He asked, where did all these come from?  The teacher said, the loss of one tomato plant does not mean that all the plants have gone bad.  Similarly, you worked hard but could not top it, but it does not mean that your day and night hard work went bad and you failed.
Many things matter while taking the exam, including speed of writing, health, mood and more which is not just a measure of hard work.  What you learned will work at every turn of your life.  Not getting what you want despite working hard does not mean that you have failed.  This means that you have climbed another ladder to reach success.


Lesson of this story:

 - If we lose today, we can win tomorrow.  It is not a mature decision  to left the trying to improve the grief of defeat.
 -Instead of getting frustrated, think about where we have missed.

The festival of Guru Purnima is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of Ashadh.  This festival is one of the most auspicious Hindu festivals.  On this day, the disciples express their gratitude to their Guru.  Many beliefs associated with this festival make it special. It is believed that for the first time on this day, Adiyogi Lord Shiva established himself as Adi Guru by giving knowledge of yoga to the Saptarishis.  It is also believed that Maharishi Ved Vyas was also born on this day.  Maharishi Vyasa composed the four Vedas and the Mahabharata.  For this reason his name is also Veda Vyas.  He is called Adiguru and Guru Purnima is known as Vyasa Purnima in his honor. 





It is believed that on this day, Maharishi Ved Vyas first gave the knowledge of Sri Bhagavata Purana to the disciples and sages.  On the full moon of Ashadh month, the disciples of Maharishi Ved Vyas started the tradition of Guru Puja.
It is also believed that Lord Buddha gave his first sermon on this auspicious day.  Hence this date is also known as Buddha Purnima.  On this day, there is a law of Guru Puja . The rainy season starts from Guru Purnima.  For four months from this day, saints and saints stay in one place and shed the Ganges of knowledge.  In Hinduism, the Guru is ranked higher than God.  This day is considered to be welfare for students.

In the Sanatan tradition, the Guru's name comes before God because it is the Guru who gives you the chance to meet with Govind, which explains his meaning.  Just like in life one has to trust the sailor to cross the river, the driver while traveling in the car, the doctor while undergoing treatment, in the same way a Sadhguru is needed to cross the life and when he meet  . we have to believe in life.  This is because even the fire of the Guru does not burn the disciple but serves to show him the right path. If you are thinking of making someone your guru on this Guru Purnima, then think a lot before that because a Guru is created only once in life.  It is not changed frequently.  One should remember this line of Kabir Das ji's couplet before making anyone a guru in the running life.

गुरु कीजिए जानि के, पानी पीजै छानि । बिना विचारे गुरु करे, परे चौरासी खानि॥

That is, the way water should be filtered and drunk, in the same way, after knowing the words and actions of any person, he should become his Guru.  Otherwise he does not get salvation and his movement on this earth remains.  Overall, the Sadhguru should be such that there is no greed in any way and it is free from fascination, confusion and doubt.  Even while living in this world, he should be free from all desires, mischief and ambition.

In Hinduism, both Guru and God have been considered equal.  Guru is like God and God is Guru.  It is the Guru who shows the way to attain God and get out of this world-like ocean.  By following the Guru's path, one attains peace, bliss and salvation.  It is said in the scriptures and the Puranas that if the Lord gets angry with the devotee, then only the Guru tells your protection and remedy.  According to religious belief, the Guru is worshiped on Guru Purnima.  Guru Poornima is very important in the country.  People celebrate Guru Purnima with great enthusiasm and happiness .  India is a country of sages and saints where they are worshiped as much as God.  Maharishi Veda Vyasa was the first scholar to explain the four Vedas of Sanatana Dharma.  And also, Sikhism has been considering only one God and the voice of its ten gurus as the real truth of life. 

Guru Purnima is celebrated as the birth day of Krishna Dwapayana Vyasa, the author of the epic Mahabharata.  Ved Vyas was a great Sanskrit writer.  The author of all 18 Puranas is also considered to be Maharishi Ved Vyasa.  The Vedas are also credited with dividing the Vedas.  For this reason, he was named Ved Vyas.  Therefore Guru Purnima is also known as Vyas Purnima.

Guru Purnima is the day when the first Guru was born.  In Yogic culture, Shiva is not considered a god, he is seen as an Adi Yogi, ie the first Yogi.  Guru Purnima is the full moon day, the day on which the yogi first transformed himself into Adi Guru, that is, the first Guru.

once upon a time.  A thief came to a saint.  He wanted him to be refugees, but did not want to give up their theft.  So, the saint allowed him and said, 'You can steal, but next time you steal, steal with full awareness.'  So, that thief thought that this is very easy, because stealing is my habit, stealing with caution is a big deal.  But it happened that the next time he was ready for the theft, he remembered the saint's point and became aware of his act.  The result was that he could not steal.


The thief thought that the saint's blessings would decrease over time.  But even after the passage of time, when he thought of theft or entered a house for theft, he remembered the voice of the saint and could not steal again.  There is great power in awareness.  It can bring a big change in you.  All mistakes happen in disregard, but in reflexes, no one can be angry, nor can there be any mistake, nor any complaint.  This happens only when your mind has become attached to its conscience, moving away from worldly things and complications.  When we have knowledge of something, then it becomes easy to handle things.  When we understand or know a little about life, it becomes easy to handle things.

When the guru comes into the life of a disciple, then awareness about his supreme reality also increases.  The Guru churns you well, so that you can have all-round development and you can be united with divinity.  The Guru is like a hut when you are surrounded in hot sun or in a severe storm, within which you get relaxed.

The Guru himself is like a light carrying a treasure of knowledge.  For a seeker, Guru is like life force.  Just as a seed first becomes a bud and then a flower, in the same way the Guru also gracefully leads us from ignorance to knowledge.  Being a Guru in life creates a sense of security in us.  Guru is an element, we should not feel Guru on a physical level.
There is a very beautiful story about Saint Kanakadasa, which makes it clear how the Guru's presence in his life should be felt.  Once the guru of Kanakadas gave him and other devotees a banana to break the fast of Ekadashi, on the condition that it be eaten only when no one was watching.  The next day the disciples described ways of eating their bananas.  But Kanakadas returned to the Guru with a banana.  When asked, Kanakdas said that whenever he tried to eat bananas, all the time, every moments and everywhere he felt the presence of his guru and he could not eat bananas. We call this experience a contiguity.  In this state all the sorrows, all the complaints go away and we start our work with full awareness.  With the belief that there is some power, which is taking care of us every time, every moment.  Then the question arises that how do we feel connected with that supreme power?  How can we find those gurus who can make us feel that light?  This question is very difficult to answer.  You have to experience it only through your inner intelligence.
Once, a very knowledgeable and respected teacher came to the Raj Bhavan.  He was also a great speaker.  He was respected by everyone, including the king, but he felt some emptiness and was in search of the Guru.  He was eager to surrender to a guru.  When he was leaving to find his Guru, the king presented him his palanquin.  When he reached his destination, it was revealed that one of the men who carried the sedan was his Guru, whom he was looking for.  His yearning to get the Guru was so much that he himself pulled the Guru to him.


If the yearning to get a Guru has arisen in your mind, then the Guru will come into your life.  If you take one step towards the Guru then the Guru takes a hundred steps towards you.  But the first step has to be taken by the disciple.  The closer you come to your guru, the more you will blossom.  Knowledge, love and newness will continue to grow in you.  There is no floor to this depth.  This is the importance of Guru Purnima, to have a never ending and unconditional relationship with your Guru.
The day of Guru Purnima is known as the biggest event in the spiritual world.  On this day, the two souls of Guru and disciple meet, surrender and immersion.  On this day, the master's aspiration dissolves in the soul of the disciple and the disciple merges in his master's aspiration.  This Mahaparva is less of knowing and understanding, more of being drowned in the ocean of feeling.  This festival is a legend, because the Guru lives in the soul of the disciple.  It is always in the disciple and the disciple has nothing of his own.  He has his own costume, inside, only the Mahachetna of the Guru keeps waving. Sadhguru is not ordinary, he is the power's source of Mahachetna, the fiercest representative of God.  God Himself appoints them and makes their future action plan.  Sadhguru incarnates on earth with the Bhagwat plan and returns to Bhagavat Dham again after completing the work.  Their action plan consists of finding their pupil, building it and then casting it.  They have to do everything according to plan.  They only know what they do and what to do.  His works are very strange - unique and special .  In the normal way, neither can it be understood nor can it be guessed.  Every work of a Guru is unique and wonderful.  His love and bless are extraordinary.  His love makes the disciple sophisticated and makes him worthy of love.  The disciple's veins flow with love.  This is what the Guru wants.  A dedicated disciple has to muster the courage to fulfill the desire of a competent Guru.  He has to go to the Guru's shelter with all his existence in this work.  In every situation, he has to be willing and ready to awareness to face suffering like humiliation, blasphemy, disdain, even death.  If he signs with his life in his death certificate, then only he fulfills the first condition to be able to become the true possessor of his favorite and love.  After this, when the love of the Guru pours on the disciple, grace arises, then the life of the disciple leads to a new birth. The Guru takes pity on those whose mind and body are not fit to hold and receive spiritual powers and give them their worldly splendor;  But those whose condition is worthy of this, they sweep all the rites in the mind of those disciples like dust.  Guru-kripa is a blessing on the disciples.

In order to receive discipleship, we should do their same works with sincerity.  Discipleship comes from Guru remembrance and Guru work.

Why is the rainy season best for Guru Purnima??

All seasons in India have their own importance.  There is a reason why Guru Purnima is celebrated especially during the rainy season.  Because in these four months there is neither excess heat nor excess cold.  This time is favorable and best for study and teaching.  Therefore, the disciples present at Guru's feets choose this time to attain the power of knowledge, peace, devotion and yoga.

Lord Krishna was rich in wonderful and supernatural personality



Lord Krishna was rich in wonderful and supernatural personality

Shri Krishna gave a new philosophy to mankind.  Taught the way of living.  His life-stories are full of miracles, but he is more closer to us  than other.  He is God but even before that, he is a successful, talented and divine human being.


The personality of Lord Shri Krishna is not only for Indian history, but also for world history, it is a supernatural and wonderful personality and will always be.  He is a unique hero of our culture.  A personality that cannot be compared to any avatar nor to any great man in the world. In every passage of his life, in every event there is a contradiction which is not generally understood.  This is the unique character of his life and this is also his unique life philosophy. The invaluable teaching he gave through his beautiful and seductive leelas and his holiness's teachings from inner and outer vision cannot come within the limits of the imaginative power of any speech or writing and the imagination of the mind, that is his singularity.  Gyani-dhyani(schloar-sage)  are defeated by searching Krishna, who do not meet in Brahm, nor in Puranas nor in the Vedas, he meet while pressing the feet of Radharani in any place of Brajbhumi- It is the peculiarity of the character of Shri Krishna that even after being unborn, he is born on earth. Even he is mritunjaya, but he accept death. Even is supreme power  but born in the prison of Kansa.
The personality and work of Shri Krishna is multi-faceted and multicolored, that is, intelligence, tact, warfare, charm, love, gravity, happiness, sorrow and how many characteristics and traits are included in himself. For a devotee, Lord Krishna is not only a god but also a guru who teaches the art of living life.  He attained the status of a great hero in Indian culture by the diverse characteristics of his personality.  On the one hand, he was a ideal scholar of politics and on the other, a great scholar of philosophy. He introduced the syncretic religion of knowledge-action-devotion while also leading in the religious world.  On the basis of his abilities, he was a man of yugas, who later became accepted as an ideal of young generation .  We remember him as a great revolutionary hero. He was a philosopher, thinker, messenger of Karma and Sankhya Yoga through the Gita, and the policy director of the Mahabharata war, but for the simple-minded Brajvasi, he was the rascha rachaiya, the Makhan chor, the naughty Kanhaiya who broke the gopis's pitcher . This is the expression in the Gita - O Arjuna! Those devotee worship me in which feeling in same way I also worship them. Shri Krishna's character is very divine.  Everyone is attract towards him.  Who attracts everyone, paves the way for devotion, removes the sins of devotees, he is Shri Krishna. He is an ideal character who while diagnosing Arjuna's mental anguish then he is a psychologist, when he killed Kansa then known as dharmaavatar. An ideal politician countering selfish politics, best musician in the form of Vishwa Mohini Bansi Bajaiah, Premavatar in front of Brijwasi . An ideal friend in front of Sudama.  In the form of  Sudarshan chakradhaari is a warrior and a pioneer of social revolution . Who do not overlap the sky of Dwapar with their divine powers, but remain in the background of mythological events like a relieved feeling.  Actually, Krishna has everything that is in human and not in human!  They are complete, bright, Brahman, knowledge.  Due to this immortal knowledge, many such rules and formulas have been propounded on the basis of their life themes and Gita, which are also applicable in Kali Yuga.  In this age full of deceit and deceit, how should we behave according to religion, what kind of behavior, we should see such benefits, not harming others, this way.  On the occasion of Janmashtami, we should adopt his teachings and biographies in our lives. Shri Krishna gave a new philosophy to mankind.  Taught the way of living.  Their life-stories are full of miracles, but he is more closer to us than than other.  He is God but even before that, he is a successful, talented and divine human being.  Despite being God, they seem the most human.
That is why Sri Krishna is considered a symbol of human emotions, desires and arts.  It seems that Shri Krishna came as the leader of life philosophy.  His entire journey from start to end is the inspiration of Purushartha.  He opened his eyes to the society when the power of autocracy  became poison for human beings.
Because no one could challenge the power, the newborn baby were killed.  Such is the story of the birth of Shri Krishna himself.  They were able to survive, so they were removed from the parents' eyes as soon as he was born.  In the society apprehensive by the fear of that time, child Krishna starting his life of sensation, struggle, reaction and protest.


The war of Mahabharata was the climax of the continuous battle which was started by Sri Krishna at birth.  Society of every era poses some questions before us.  Shri Krishna answered the same questions and became Taranhar.  Even today, almost the same questions stand before us.  In such a situation, it is important to focus on the exemplary side of Shri Krishna's dazzling chanting side so that the society can be removed from the cycle of this complexity.  His entire personality and curiosity has become an indelible article of religious history.  His sense of balance and harmony made him a favorite of illiterate milkman, people living in the lower strata of society, and disabled victims of neglect.
Sri Krishna birth anniversary is an example of social equality.  He was born in the city and spent his childhood playing in the village.  Thus his character connects the culture of the village and the city, connects the poor with the rich, Gwal baal to be the Gita preacher, killing the evil Kansa and returning his kingdom to Maharaj Ugrasena . Despite of he belong to rich family used to go the poor Gwal Bal and Gopis home and eating Makhan etc. are examples of being a successful national hero.  Like an ordinary human Krishna, any person can become a nationalist by touching every position of society and being loved by all. The heroic demons of kansa are slaughtered at the moment  by Krishna but  he gets lost in the game by Gwal baal. This is an example of the founding of divine love. Lord Krishna 's reasons for social harmony and patriotism are the inspiring criteria.
Shrikrishna is the only person in the vast sky of spirituality who does not appear serious nor seem indifferent even after going to the ultimate depths and heights of dharma, but is a person full of biographical power.  Sri Krishna's character has dance, song, love, dedication, humor, rasa, and the mindset to accept war as well, if needed.
The Great War is the symbol of the defense of religion and truth.  There is no other person who created history in the world with a flute in one hand and Sudarshan Chakra in the other hand.  There is no prohibition in the character of Shri Krishna, there is a sense of accepting every moment of life, every substance, every event with totality.  If they love, they are completely immersed in it, if they are friends, then they are also fully loyal, and when they accept war, then there is complete acceptance in that too.


On Janmashtami, the birth anniversary of Sri Krishna, we should strive for the rise of humanity by making inspiration simple from him and making life simple and easy.
