Krishna literally means "black, dark, dark"; Krishna is one of the most worshiped deities in Hinduism 
In many Hindu schools Krishna is considered as an incarnation of Vishnu, in others as the Supreme Personality of highest manifestation of God energies, God himself.


According to Vedic tradition, Krishna was born 5,000 years ago in Mathura, the then capital of the kingdom Shurasena (in modern Uttar Pradesh) in the land of Bharat-Varsa (now India). He was the eighth child of Devaki and her husband Vasudeva princess.


Krishna was in a stormy night in the month of Shravan (August / September) are born on the eighth day after the full moon at midnight (Janmashtami) in a prison cell, and would have spent his childhood in Vrindavan. The demonic King Kamsa, destroy the brother of Devaki, wanted all the eight children she would give birth.

According to astrological predictions his bad and selfish domination would very soon come to an end. His sister Devaki would defy anybody in her eighth delivery less than Lord Vishnu himself ones. This would have put an end to the series of terrorist years of reign suffered by countless civilians and holy men. Kamsa therefore tried to kill this eighth child, just as he had slain all previous children of Devaki.

Krishna`s father Vasudeva, however, escaped miraculously with the newborn boy, even before the king got wind of it, and swopped  the baby with the newborn daughter of Yashoda and Nanda Gokula in the country.
