    Krishna Janmashtami Bhajans

    Darshan Do Ghanshyam

    Darashan do ghanashyam naath mori
    Ankhiyan pyaasi re
    Man mandir ki jyoti jagaado,
    Ghat ghat basi re

    Mandir mandir murat teri
    Phir bhi naa dikhe surat teri
    Yug bite naa aai milan ki
    Puranamasi re

    Dwaar dayaa kaa jab tu khole
    Pancham sur mein gungaa bole
    Andhaa dekhe langadaa chal kar
    Pahunche kasi re

    Paani pi kar pyaas bujhaun
    Nainon ko kaise samajhaaun
    Aankh michauli chhodo ab
    Man ke basi re

    Nibarl ke bal dhaan nidharn ke
    Tum rakhwaale bhakt janon ke
    Tere bhajan mein sab sukh paun
    Mite udasi re

    Naam jape par tujhe naa jaane
    Unako bhi tu apanaa maane
    Teri dayaa kaa ant nahin hai
    He dukh nashi re

    Aaj phaisalaa tere dwaar par
    Meri jit hai teri haar par
    Har jit hai teri main to
    Charan upaasi re

    Dwaar khadaa kab se matavaalaa
    Maange tum se har tumhaari
    Narasi ki ye binati sunalo
    Bhakt vilaasi re

    Laj naa lut jaaye prabhu teri
    Naath karo naa dayaa mein deri
    Tin lok chhod kar aao
    Gangaa nivasi re

    Bhajo Radhe Govinda

    Koi kahe Vasudev ka
    Koi kahe Nandalala Koi kahe
    Bhajo Radhe Govinda.

    Gaj aur Grehe lade jal
    Jal mein chakra chalaya Jal mein chakra chalaya
    Jab jab bhid padi bhagaton par
    Nanggi pairin dhaya Nanggi pairin dhaya
    Bhajo Radhe Govinda.

    Tohre naam se hoga is bhav sagar ka paar
    Rang lo mohe
    Apne rang main murari

    Chahta jana chhodd duniya ka sath
    Darsh do mohe
    More pran chhootat jat

    Moh maya ke is bhanwar se
    Do mujhe ab ubhar
    Darsh do mohe
    More pran chhootat jat

    Karm ki gathariya ho gayi bhari
    Karo mera uddhar
    Darsh do mohe
    More pran chhootat jat

    Sumiran kar tera antim kshan mein
    Mujhe milega swarg ka dwar
    Darsh do mohe
    More pran chhootat jat

    More pyare girdhari
    Sun lo ab arz humari
    Darsh de mohe
    More pran chhootat jat

    Krishna Janmashtami Legends

    According to the legends, Kansa was a mighty and discourteous prince of Mathura. His father Ugrasen had chosen Vasudev, one of the highly ranked officials in his army, as the groom for his daughter - Devki (Kansa's sister). Agreeing to the decision, Kansa arranged a lavish wedding for his only sister. When Kansa was riding on a chariot along with the newly wed couple - Devki and Vasudev - a heavenly voice interrupted the journey. It predicted that Devki's eighth son would kill Kansa. Upon hearing the prophesy, the self-centered Kansa imprisoned the newly wed couple.

    Apart from imprisoning Devki and Vasudev, Kansa also put his own father (the King of Mathura) behind bars. Consequently, Kansa took over as the King of Mathura. He waited until the arrival of the Devki's first child. The moment Kansa heard the news of the birth of Devki's first child; he headed towards the prison ferociously, got hold of the newborn and killed the child. The following six newborns of Devki were killed by Kansa in similar manner. When she was about to give birth to her eighth child, a heavenly voice commanded Vasudev to take the newborn to Gokul and exchange it with the newborn girl child of Nanda and Yashoda.

    Birth Of Lord Krishna
    The guards of the prison had fallen into deep slumber. They were unable to inform their master about the birth of Devki's eighth child. The shackles and the prison gate opened miraculously and Vasudev stepped out of the prison with the newborn, carried in a small basket. In the midnight, Vasudev carried the newborn in the basket and traveled through the waters of stormy Yamuna River. Since it was raining heavily, a huge snake known as Adisesha with its 2000 hoods, glided behind the father and the newborn, in order to act as a protective canopy for the divine child. When Vasudev returned from Gokul, the shackles fastened automatically, the doors of the prison closed and the guards woke up.

    Upon hearing the news of the birth of Devki's eighth child, Kansa went to the cell and got hold of the newborn. Ironically, the child slipped out of his stranglehold and appeared as Goddess, laughing at him. She vanished after telling that the eighth son of Devki (Lord Krishna) had already born and was safe elsewhere. Lord Krishna grew up at Gokul as a mischievous prankster who was the heartbeat of Gokul and the favorite of Gopikas. He grew up as a lovable brat, who played around mischievously and looted fresh Makhan (homemade butter) from every household of Gokul. Year by year, people in Mathura, Gokul and elsewhere in India celebrate the birth of the favorite deity - Lord Krishna on the eighth day (asthami) of Savan month and name it as Janmashtami or Krishnashtami.
