The Birth of Lord Krishna By: Presha and Richa
We know this is a myth it may or may not be true, but myths tell people's stories and here is a myth for you. Kansa is Devaki's brother, on her wedding day he heard a voice say that Devaki's eight child would kill him. Kansa had imprisoned Devaki and Vasudeva Devaki's husband. Devaki prayed to Vishnu. He promised to be born as her eight child.
I will be born as your eight child and defeat Kansa
Om Suklambara - Dharam Vishnum
I am Lord Vishnu, I will defeat Kansa
A voice boomed.The guards immediately fell asleep and the gates opened.The decision was unanimous. They would save Krishna by replacing him with Nanda's daughter. Vasudeva set off with Krishna in a basket.
Take your child to the safe arms of Nanda in Gokul switch and your son with his daughter.
I shall save Krishna!
Vasudeva began his hazardous journey through the eerie and boisterous weather. He faced many challenges, but was determined to save his son.
Here is Krishna.
I will keep him safe
Vasudeva reached Gokul . He and Nanda switched children. Vasudeva headed back with Yogamaya, Nanda's daughter.
Kansa better not kill Yogamaya
Vasudeva takes the same route, faces the same hardships, the only two things that are different is the baby he holds in the basket and the safety of his son. The baby he holds isn't his child and the baby Nanda is with isn't his child either.
