गोकुळाष्टमी

8/10/2016 2:53:00 PM

श्रीकृष्णाचा जन्म श्रावण वद्य अष्टमीस मध्यरात्री, रोहिणी नक्षत्रावर चंद्र वृषभ राशीत असतांना झाला. गोकुळाष्टमीला दिवसभर उपवास करून रात्री बारा वाजता पाळण्यातील बाळकृष्णाचा जन्म साजरा करतात व मग प्रसाद घेऊन उपवास सोडतात किंवा दुसर्‍या दिवशी सकाळी दहीकाल्याचा प्रसाद घेऊन उपवास सोडतात. काला म्हणजे विविध खाद्यपदार्थ, दही, दूध, लोणी एकत्र कालविणे. श्रीकृष्णाने काजमंडळात गायी चारतांना स्वत:ची व सवंगड्यांच्या शिदोर्‍या एकत्र करून त्यांचा काला केला व सर्वांसह तो खाल्ला. या कथेला अनुसरून पुढे गोकुळाष्टमीच्या दुसर्‍या दिवशी काला करण्याची व दहीहंडी फोडण्याची प्रथा पडली. दहीहंड्या फोडत दहिकाल्याचा उत्सव साजरा करतात. दुधादह्याची हंडीग्रामदेवते समोर बांधली जाते. तिला झेंडूची फुलं, काकडी, केळीं बांधून सजवली जाते. पुजा, गार्‍हाणे आटोपल्यावर ती हंडी फोडली जाते. फुटलेल्या हंडीचा काला करून सगळ्यांना वाटला जातो.

In the childhood Lord Krishna was very naughty. Everybody in the house especially Mother Yashodha was fed up with his mischief behaviour. He used to steal butter and cheese in his house and also from the neighbours. The neighbours used to complain about his deeds to Mother Yashodha. These deeds are wrong.

This story is associated with the holy place named Brindavan. Sri Krishna’s childhood is associated with this place. At that time people used to worship Lord Indra. The residents thought that because of his grace Brindavan is a prosperous place. It used to rain a lot. Plenty of rain transformed this place into a heaven. When Krishna arrived, he observed that people are worshiping Lord Indra blindfold. He decided to break the myth. He explained the residents that because of Moutain Govardhan, Brindavan is a prosperous place. People believed him and stopped worshiping Indra and started worshiping Moutain Govardhan. This made Indra angry. He felt insulted. He decided to punish the villagers. Lord Indra sent dark clouds to destroy Brindavan. Now it started raining. The whole village was flooded with water. Such heavy rains destroyed everything. People started running here and there but could not find a place for shelter. People blamed Krishna for destruction. Krishna was cal
