Krishna has appeared from Mother Devaki’s womb. Devaki also means “the sky,” And Krishna has become its moon.
“Worldly afflictions strike the body, senses, and soul. Divine anguish is felt in the fire of God’s separation. The moon removes all these miseries and showers delight. Lord Krishna appears as the lila moon, the lord of the stars, and rises from behind the eastern mountains. He is not only the husband of the constellations but also grants us soulful ecstasy.
“This moon’s special virtue is that it can remove, from great distances, the afflictions of all. Moon Krishna is the lord and the husband of the sky. The stars are the moon’s wives and, like us, reside very close to the Beloved. When Lord Krishna stands with us in our dance circle He is simply outstanding!” — transl. by Shyamdas, Ecstatic Couplets
