This wonderful story is found in the Srimad Bhagavad Purana, Mahabharata and Harivamsam. Sri Krishna was born to Devaki at midnight in the prison. All the guards were fast asleep and the prison doors opened on its own. Vasudeva was to carry the little Krishna to the house of Mata Yashoda in Gokul and carry back the child that was born to Nanda and Yashoda. When Vasudeva ventured out of the prison, it was raining heavily and suddenly Snake Adisesha appeared and formed a canopy to guard the little Krishna from the heavy downpour.
