When Was Sri Krishna Born?

when did krishna die and when was he revived?

As Aham Brahmasmi said, in srimath Bhaagavatham it is said,when sri.Krishna, at a ripe old age, was taking rest on the greem foliage(Branch with copious leaves) of a Banyan Tree (sri. Vata Patra Saayee---Vata=Banyan tree----Patram=leaves-Foliage--Saayee=Lying on a benign mood--sri.Krishna is very fond of that)--A hunter mistook His lower portion of the foot which looked like a red (pink) bird and sent a poisonous arrow .It is said that Sri.Krishna thought the purpose of His Avathaaram(incrnation) is fulfilled and the Time has come to drop His body and His "Soul' to go back to its original permamnent Abode (Vaikuntam)

In Hindu religion there is no beliefe of "Resurrection"--only God's reincarnation at appropriate Time("Sambhavaami Yuge ,Yuge).

In which constellation Krishna was born?

Janmashtami is celebrated to welcome and enjoy Lord Krishna's birth. The birth of Lord Krishna took place when the various planets were in auspicious places. It is said that God chooses a particular time, as to when he will take birth as a human and the planetary systems are adjusted accordingly.

Auspicious Nakshatra (Constellation)
Around the time of Bhagwan Krishna's birth, Rohini Nakshatra was predominant as it is considered to be quite auspicious. This is so because it is under the supervision of Brahma, the creator of Universe. Sri Krishna was born in the month Of Sravana more than 5000 years ago.

Born in Dwapur Yug (Iron Age)
According to some scholars, Krishna was born on Wednesday,the eighth day of second fortnight in Sravana month in the year of Visvavasu around 3227 BC, also known as Dwapur Yug. July 19th 3228 BC to be more accurate. He lived for 125 years and disappeared on February 18th 3102 BC on the new moon night of Phalguna. His death was the onset of the current corrupt age known as Kaliy

Krishna was a carpenter?

Krishna was a carpenter?

Lord Sri. Krishna belonged to a Royal Family.

His father Sri.Vasu Deva was a Vrishni Kula Kshatriya Prince.

His mother Devaki was the daughter of KING Ugrasena,-Capital Mathura,U.P. State, India.

There is an Oil-Refinery in Mathura today.--there was a complaint that SO3 ( Sulphur Tri-Oxide)
From this Refinery is slowly " Ruining" the marble (Ca CO3) of TAJ MAHAL ( World Wonder)-- I do not know what happened to that complaint--since I moved to USA permanently.

His maternal uncle Kansa performed his sister Devaki's marriage with Vasudeva,spending
A fortune of Royal Treasury.

An Astrologer tells Kansa-- the 8 th Child of Devaki and Vasudeva --who will be born on the 8 th day in Waning phase of moon ( Dark FortNight ) when the Waning moon is in the Constellation of Rohini--when Sun is in LEO( Sravana Month) ---in 2013 it comes on August,28,2013--Wednessday-- lord Sri. Krishna would be born and when He is 16 years old He will KILL you (KANSA)

Lord Sri Krishna was Not. A CARPENTER ( Daksha in Hindu Language)-- He became the King
After his maternal grandfather Ugrasena and shifts His Capital from Mathura to Dwarika--almost 3000 miles away,because KANSA ' s father-in-law JARASANDHA was constantly creating troble in Mathura.

Hinduism...Why didn't Sri Krishna perform a miracle and avoid the Mahabharata war ?

Sri Krishna is often quoted as 'Swayam Bhagavan' and 'Supreme Personality of Godhead' by some cult movements. Now if Krishna was Bhagavan himself, why could he not stop the Mahabharata war by virtue of some miracles? Sri krishna is known to have performed many miracles in his lifetime. But when it came to a critical moment when lives of thousands were involved, why did he not perform any miracle and save human lives? Does God want human beings to die? Nimai Nitai seems to be in perpetual darkness. Based of lame logics, he is saying that God incarnates to kill adharmic people. Going by his reasoning, Krishna must have taken lakhs of incarnation to kill the adharmic, but that is not the case anyhow. I hope wisdom dawns on such blind preachers, who understand nothing about life and the universe..


If the Lord would have avoided the war than it was not possible to establish the dharma and destroy the adharma. God showed the miracles to save the dharma or truth. Dharma protecs human being automatically. If duryodhan was not killed than he would have killed many humans in future. Duryodhana was not only a human being but he was the representation of Adharma or evil.


How do you celebrate Shri Krishna Janmashtami in your family?


My Parents doing fast on that day (not taking even water),the ideal method will be to recite the mantra ‘Shri Krishna Sharanam mamah’ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63DY3MFYL6k) and devotional songs of Mirabai,Narshinh mehata for Sri Krishna ....Reading or listening to Srimad Bhagavad Purna or Bhagavatam is highly auspicious on the day.

This can be done while performing pujas or throughout the day.Pujas involve offering flowers and performing Arati.doing "Thal" make/prepare Prasāda of "Panjeeri"( i really like this Prasad http://www.indobase.com/recipes/details/panjiri.php) ...The main worship mostly in temples takes place at midnight when Lord Krishna was born.whole family unitedly meet and praying god..n celebrate Sri Krishna's birth with "NAND GHAR ANAND BHAYO JAY KANAYA LAL KI..." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA51qG5EUPQ &(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKttTZ-BtUk

It must be remembered here that Lord Krishna is happy with anything that is offered to him in true devotion. Krishna was happy with sweat drenched beaten rice offered by Kuchela or Sudama. He was happy with the last leaf left in Draupadi’s Akaheyapatra. He was content with the gruel in Vidura’s (Dhritarashtra’s minister in Mahabharata) home.

Happy Janmashtami!!!!! Jai Sri Krishna!!!!! :)
