Mathura visit on invitation of Kans - Shri Krishna - Ch. 8

On the full moon day, Gokul was celebrating the festival of Holi. On Nand and Yashoda’s invitation, even Radha came for the festival with her parents. People of Gokul were enamoured by the deeds of teenage Krishna. Krishna played the flute and spread the message of love all over the world. Krishna told Radha that God resided where their love existed and that was the spiritual truth.

In this world, every couple in love is Radha and Krishna. Just then Akroor came and gave Vasudev and Devaki’s message to Sage Garg that they didn’t want the brothers to be separated, so a secret arrangement had to be made in Gokul itself for the education and consecration of Krishna and Balram, so that Kans wouldn’t be aware of it. Sage Garg agreed to it.

Radha and the other gopis visited the temple of Goddess Gauri, prayed for Krishna to be their husband as a boon. Devi Gauri said Tathashtu  (So be it). Krishna assured Radha of his love by saying that he saw Radha’s face in all the Gopis, which reassured Radha.

The divine form of this love was seen on the full moon day during their Raasleela. While dancing in the raas, each and every gopi could see Krishna dancing with them. This was the act of divine form of love. Here, the individual soul met the supreme spirit.

"Akroor came and gave Vasudev and Devaki’s message to Sage Garg that they didn’t want the brothers to be separated, so a secret arrangement had to be made in Gokul itself for the education and consecration of Krishna and Balram, so that Kans wouldn’t be aware of it. Sage Garg agreed to it."

The blind poet Surdas once came to Maharishi Garg’s ashram and requested him to grant him vision just once so that he could see Krishna with his own eyes. Maharshi told him, “So what if you are blind, you always have seen Krishna through your heart!

Why would you wish to look at a physical form and fall into illusion? So, I will not do so; it is for your betterment that you see him only with your heart. If you want salvation in the refuge of Krishna, then this wish of yours will be fulfilled in Kalyug.” Surdas was satisfied and then left.

To know whether Krishna was the son of Vasudev and Devaki or no, Kans, on the advice of his friend Banasur and Pandit Satpak, planned to invite Krishna for Dhanuryagya (a sacrifice in which a bow is worshipped and the art of archery displayed). His plan was to kill Krishna if he came to Mathura.

But would Krishna come?  He called for Akroor to go and invite Krishna. He also tempted him and said, “If you get the work done according to my orders then I will make you the king of one of the states of Mathura.” Patriotic Akroor said, “My self-respect is only with king Shursen and if you really want to make a king then crown Vasudev because from the Yadava family, he is the only one who deserves to be a king.” Kans got angry at Akroor’s rejection of Kans’s proposal and left for the court.

Kans went to the prison and threatened Vasudev and Devaki. “I know the reality of Krishna and you will have to invite him for the Dhanuryagya to be held in Mathura.” Vasudev told Kans that Devaki never gave birth to the eighth child, to which Kans replied, “Krishna is the eighth child of Devaki.

Naradji has told me this himself; you had promised me that you will hand over all the children of Devaki to me so for this reason you must invite Krishna to come to Mathura. You lied to me that Krishna is not Devaki’s son; you have cheated me, you are a villain and so I will have to kill you.” Devaki pleaded with Kans for mercy.

Kans told Devaki that if she wanted to save her husband then she had to call Krishna to Mathura. Devaki asked Akroor to tell Krishna that his mother had called Him. Akroor told Devaki and Vasudev that it was Kans’s trick and it would not go well because Kans wanted to kill Krishna. But Devaki was helpless and so she did not listen to Akroorji. In the end, Akroor being helpless, agreed to go to Gokul and at the same time he thought of a plan to save Krishna.

"Vasudev told Kans that Devaki never gave birth to the eighth child, to which Kans replied, “Krishna is the eighth child of Devaki. Naradji has told me this himself; you had promised me that you will hand over all the children of Devaki to me so for this reason you must invite Krishna to come to Mathura.
