Krishna was born in the darkness of the night, into the locked confines of a jail.
However, at the moment of His birth, al.l the guards fell asleep, the chains were broken and the barred doors gently opened.
Similarly, as soon as Krishna (Chetna) takes birth in our hearts, all darkness fades, all chains are broken; and all prison doors are opened.
And that is the real essence of Janmashtmi.
May Lord Krishna's flute fill the melody of love and life in your world at all times!
Happy Krishna Janmashtami!
