Legend


According to the Sage NaradaNaradaNarada
Narada, also popularly known as Narada Muni, is a great Vedic sage and is one of the most significant and iconic characters of the Hindus. 
, the end of the evil King Kansa, could only have been brought by the eighth son of DevakiDevakiDevaki
In Hinduism, Devaki is the wife of Vasudeva and mother of Krishna. She was the mother of the Devas. Devaki and Vasudeva were imprisoned by her brother, Kamsa or Kansa...
named Krishna. Kansa always believed in the Oracle, thus he captured Devaki and her husband, put them inside the prison for nine years and killed their seven children one after another, despite being the brother of Devaki. As KrishnaKrishnaKrishna

and was destined to bring the end of the tyrant, destiny played its role and Kansa couldn’t harm Krishna.

Krishna was somehow transported to Gokul where he was nurtured and parented by Yashoda. He grew up to be a cow-herder and lived his childhood freely, stealing butter and curd from near-by houses and playing with the girls of his village.

Meanwhile, Kansa sent his warrior to find the child and kill him but all his efforts were futile. He then thought of using his brain and play mind games with Krishna. He offered him to come to his kingdom. Krishna was well-aware of the evil plotting of Kansa but he still visited his kingdom, along with his brother Balarama.

Kansa, first, let a mad elephant loose in his kingdom. The animal trampled people and many houses but couldn’t harm Krishna. Rather Krishna slew his truck and killed him. Kansa then sent two of his demon warriors but BalaramaBalaramaBalarama

and Krishna easily handled them both and brought an end to their miserable lives.

Now, Kansa, was well aware of his mistakes and he started repenting for his sins but Krishna was in no mood to forgive a man who had killed innocent babies, imprisoned his parents for nine years and brought misery on the subjects of the kingdom. Krishna held Kansa’s throat in his hands and crushed it till the last second of his life, despite of his continuous begging and crying.

He then went to meet his parents, freed them from jail and hugged them with love. Devaki’s heart was filled with emotions as she met her son after such a long time. Krishna then went on to free his grandfather, Ugrasena, He was the king of Mathura. His policy was to unite the divided kingdom. He had great skills in warfare but he was very humble and generous. He also had great tactics regrading domestic and foreign policy. He was married to queen Padmavati. His father was Ahuka. He was dethroned by Kansa and his evil plans. Kansa was later defeated by Krishna and Ugrasena was given his throne back. from the prison as he was the original king of the kingdom and was also imprisoned by his own son. Krishna bestowed him with the crown and he became the beloved and sincere King of Mathura again. People cheered for Krishna and Balarama and they knew that the days of misery and cruelty have been brought to an end.

Rituals


Devotees of Krishna make an effigy of Kansa and then burn it to ground, symbolizing that the period of evil is always short and that goodness and truth always prevails. They take out a huge procession and keep chanting ‘Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, RamaRamaRama
 As of late, in the year 2007, the idea of whether Rama...
