Salvation of Demon Trinavarta by Lord Krishna

When Krishna's maternal uncle Kansa came to know that Baby Krishna also killed Shatkasur. Then he got very angry and called Trinavarta to execute the task of killing Baby Krishna. Kansa made Trinavarta aware of the powers of Little Krishna. Trinavarta assured Kansa that he has ha magnificent power of blowing away everything and he will surely blow away Krishna and will through him from the height that will finally kill him. 

Kansa sent the whirlwind-demon Trinavarta to finish off Lord Krishna. At the same time, and another function was observed by Yashoda and Nanda Maharaja (King Nanda): Krishna's first birthday. They arranged for Krishna's birthday ceremony. Lord Krishna, who was carried by his mother Yashoda in her lap, had come to know of this through his divine powers about new plan of Kansa and made himself heavy on her lap. He wanted to support the intent of Trinavarta just so that he could slay the wicked demon.


Yashoda had to finally put him down on the floor, finding him very heavy. She left him and went away to do some housework. Taking both the opportunity and the form of a powerful tornado, Because of this, everyone's eyes became covered within a few moments, and the whole area of Vrindavan became densely dark so that no one could see himself or anyone else. During this great catastrophe, mother Yashoda could not see her baby, who was taken away by the whirlwind, and she began to cry very piteously. She fell down on the ground exactly like a cow who has just lost her calf. When mother Yashoda was so piteously crying, all the cowherd women immediately came and began to look for the baby, but they were disappointed and could not find Him.

Trinavarta taking baby Krishna high in sky
Trinavarta kidnapped baby Krishna, and spun him high into the sky. Trinavarta flew higher and higher up into the sky so that he could drop down Lord Krishna and kill him. Krishna made himself unbearably heavy for Trinavarta too that suddenly he could not go any further, and he had to stop his whirlwind activities. Baby Krishna made Himself heavy and began to weigh down the demon. The Lord caught hold of his neck. Trinavarta felt the baby to be as heavy as a big mountain, and he tried to get out of His clutches, but he was unable to do so, and his eyes popped out from their sockets. Crying very fiercely, he fell down to the ground of Vrindavan and died. He hit the stone ground, and his limbs were smashed to pieces by the transcendent baby Krishna, who emerged without a scratch. His body became visible to all the inhabitants of Vrindavan.
