Janmashtami Festival

HTML clipboard

Janmashtami festival marks the birthday of Lord Shri Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Krishna Janmashtami festival is observed on the eighth day, Ashtami tithi, of the dark half in the month of Shravana (mid August – mid September); on the day of Rohini nakshatra (star).

People put Lord Krishna’s idol in the decorated little cradles. Singing bhajans like jai Kanhaiya Lal Ki, Madan Gopal ki, devotees offer prayers to Lord Krishna. They also chant mantras of Lord Krishna.

Devotees observe fast for the entire day and it is broken after the birth of the Lord at midnight. Only milk and milk products are preferred by them, as these were the favorites of Lord Krishna.

Sri Krishna Janmashtami is known by various names such as Krishnashtami, Gokulashtami, Saatam Aatham, Ashtami Rohini, Sri Krishna Jayanti and Sree Jayanthi. Krishna Janmashtami is celebrated for two days.

The first day is known as Krishnashtami and the second day is known as Kalashtami. According to traditions, Lord Krishna was born to demolish Kamsa, the demon king of Mathura. Lord Krishna played an important role in Hindu epic Mahabharata (legendary battle in Kurukshetra) and also emphasized the theory of bhakti.
