A popular legend says that when Shri Krishna was a child, he loved eating soil. One day, when he was caught by mother Yashodha, he lied to her that he was not eating soil. When she asked him to open his mouth, Shri Krishna did so and mother Yashodha saw the entire universe in the Lord's mouth.  There are many such legends of Lord Krishna that are famous.

Extending Janmashtami greetings to all.

Jai Shri Krishna!
