The Story Behind Name of Krishna
One day, due to request of Vasudev, the priest Gargacharya came to Gokul. Nand Yashoda was respectful and ask the condition of Vasudev and Devaki, when asked the reason for coming, Gargacharya has told that a child has been born in a nearby village, I have to go to there to naming the new child, your house in on the way so I just came to meet you. On hearing this, Nand Yashoda requested that Baba please gave name to our two newly born boys also.
Gargacharya refuses, he said you have a habit of doing everything with great noise. If Kansa finds out, then my life will be in danger. Nand Baba said, please do it silently in Gaushala, we will not tell anyone.
Gargacharya was ready when Rohini heard that the priests have come and started appraising. Yashoda said if Garg is such a great priest, why not we swap our children. Let’s see how your priest garg knows the truth?
Both mothers agreed for this challenge. They changed their children with each other and reached the gaushala. On seeing the child in Yashoda’s hand, Gargacharya started saying that he is the son of Rohini, so his name will be rohinya, he will become favourites of everyone due to his qualities. The other name will be Ram and no one will beat him in power, that’s why he will be known as Balram. For the other child he said, he will not make any distinction in anyone, will attract everyone towards him and so his name will be Sankarshan.
Now, as soon as he saw Boy in Rohini’s lap, Gargacharya forgot all his memories lost in somewhere, with open eyes, Baba and Yashoda shook seeing it and asked what happened? have you forgotten that, you have come to name the child?
Hearing this, Gargacharya has come to his senses and utterly said Nand your child is not an ordinary person, saying this … Kanha showed his eyes as soon as he lifted his finger. Gargacharya was going to say that he is a real God. Then Kanha has threatened Gargacharya in the eyes, Baba, do not open my secret.
I know that Baba what the world does here with god and worship him and then closes it in the cupboard and I have not come to be locked in the cupboard, I have come to eat Makhan Mishri, I have come to soak myself in mother’s love I explained to you what my situation would be.
But Gargacharya could not agree, he tried to say it again but Krishna again threatened Baba if he said this again, the tongue will stop here and finger will be raised for always. All this game was happening in eyes, and Nand Yashoda did not know anything.
Now Gargacharya said, the name of this son will be many, due to his karma in the future, he will be known as many names, but because it has got black color this time, I will name him Krishna. Mother said, “Baba, what kind of name is this? My tongue has got dizzy to speak it.” Please tell an easy name, then Gargacharya started saying, “You should call it Kanhaiya, Kanha, Kishan. Hearing this, Mother smiled. She kept calling him Kanha.
There was a girl who was an ardent devotee of Krishna Ji, since childhood, she used to worship Lord Krishna. She used to do devotion, grew up doing devotion, by the grace of God, she was also married in a good house in Sri Dham Vrindavan. After Marriage, she went to Vrindavan for the first time, but could not get away from being a new bride, and then went to her maternal home. And the day also came when her husband came to take her to her maternal home, She then reached Vrindavan with her husband.
On reaching it was evening, her husband stopped at the bank of Yamuna in Vrindavan and said, look! It is evening, I take a bath in Yamuna ji right now.
You sit under this tree and take care of the stuff, I will come in a short time. If you find anything, give me a voice, saying this, the husband left and the girl sat down. Now a veil has been taken out long because the village is in-laws and has sat there, the mind started thinking. Look at that! I have been blessed by Thakur ji since childhood, and by his grace, I got married in Shri Dham Vrindavan. Because of their culture, she hides his face behind a long veil. She sat there, started thinking about herself. Look at that! I have been blessed by Thakur ji since childhood, and by his grace, I got married in Shri Dham Vrindavan.
I believe in Thakur ji for so many years, but have not connected with him till now? Then thinks how old will Thakur ji be? Lord Krishna will be around 16 years old, my husband is 20 years old, a little bit younger than my husband, so my husband’s younger brother, and like my brother-in-law, so from today Thakur ji became my brother-in-law, now a new relationship with Thakur ji. She Glad to add new relations with Lord Krishna.
And started talking to herself in mind Thakur ji, From today I became your sister-in-law and you my brother-in-law, now the time will come when you will call me as sister-in-law. She was still in her thought and suddenly a child of 10-15 years came and said to her – sister-in-law! The girl suddenly came out of her thought and think I am new bride here, nobody knows me then who is calling me sister in law.
She was new, so she did not rise the veil because if any of the elders of the village saw it, it would be a great disgrace. Now that child used to say again and again but she did not answer, the child came near and said. sister-in-law! At least show your face. Now she started thinking that this child is insisting so that she sat down holding the veil tightly to see that the veil could not rise, but the boy forcibly rise the veil, and see her face and ran away. After a while her husband arrived, she told the whole thing to her husband.
The husband said – Why didn’t you give me a voice? The girl said – He had just run away. Husband said – don’t worry, Vrindavan is not a big village. If I ever get him to play in a street or anywhere else, I will beat him so he will never be able to do it again. Wherever you see him, let me know. Then both went home, a few days later his mother-in-law told his son – son! you got married, daughter-in-law also came from her maternal home. But both of you have not yet gone to see Banke Bihari ji so go tomorrow with your wife and visit Banke Bihari Ji. Now the next day both the husbands and wife go to the temple to see Lord Krishna. The temple was very crowded. The husband said – Look! You go ahead with other women, I will come in few minutes. She go ahead but she does not lift the veil she afraid if anyone see her without veil, will say that the new daughter-in-law is walking without a veil.
After a while husband came from behind and said – Bihari ji is in front, if you will not open your veil, how will you see lord Krishna. Now she lifted his veil and when he looked towards Banke Bihari ji, then the same boy appeared smiling at the place of Banke Bihari ji, she shouted right away – listen come fast! Come fast ! Husband came running from behind and said what happened? The girl said – That day the boy who had run away I found him. The husband said – Where he is, let me see him? Then, pointing to Thakurji, she said – Here it is. Whatever her husband saw, he was speechless and said that you are blessed. In fact, the true feeling in your heart towards Thakur ji. I have been in Vrindavan for so many years, I have not seen him till date and your sentiment is so high that Bihari ji got to see you.
