Krishna Janmastami marks the celebration
of the birth of Bhagavan Sri Krishna.
This festival is also known as Krishna
Jayanti or Janmashtami. Lord Krishna is
regarded as the 8th avatar or 'incarnation'
of Vishnu. The life of Sri Krishna is
the most stirring saga of one of the greatest
saviors and propounders of 'Dharma'. His
life is filled with numerous dangers over
which he ultimately gained victory. The
stories of how he killed, one after the
other, all the demonic adversaries- Pootana,
Shakata, Agha, Dhenuka, Bakaa, Keshi,
Kansa, Shishupala, Jarasandha etc. - has
made him the peerless savior of mankind.
