Story of Balarama’s birth and how he was saved from Kansa

Balarama was son of Vasudeva. The evil king Kansa, the brother of Devaki, was intent upon killing the children of his sister because of a prediction that he would die at the hands of her eighth child. Evil demon Kansa had already killed first six children of Devaki by smashing the new borns on a stone. Vishnu intervened, and when Balarama was conceived state the Hindu legends, his embryo was moved from Devaki’s womb into the womb of Rohini, a resident of rural cowherd village. In some texts, this movement gives Balarama the epithet Sankarshana (one who was dragged away). Balarama grew up with his younger brother Krishna with foster parents, in the household of Yashoda and Nanda. He was named Rama, but because of his great strength he was called Balarama
