Sri Krishna and Narakasura – The Story of Narakasura Vadha

Story of Sri Krishna and Narakasura is found in the Srimad Bhagavad Purana. Naraka Chaturdasi or Diwali in South India is based on the Narakasura Vadha story.
Legend has it that Demon Naraka, the son of Bhumi Devi, with the help of a boon from Brahma became very powerful. The boon was that he could only be killed by his mother Bhumi Devi. With such immense power Naraka lost his self control and his ego took over him. He started harassing people and demi-gods. He also forcibly took away the earrings of Aditi, the mother of devas.
Finally, the task of annihilating Naraka fell on Krishna. As always, a clever Lord Krishna asked his wife Satyabhama, an incarnation of Bhumi Devi, to accompany him to the battle against Naraka and be his charioteer.
The battle between Naraka and Krishna shook the entire world. During the battle, an arrow hits Krishna and he acts being unconscious.
Satyabhama could not tolerate this and she took the bow and arrow of Krishna and kills Demon Naraka.
It is sai…

Wisdom of Rabindranath Tagore

A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.
Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Everything comes to us belongs to us if we have the capacity to receive it.
The real friendship is like fluorescence, it shines better when everything has darken.
Thoughts feeds itself with its own words and grows.
Rabindranath Tagore
