The festival of Janmashtami is a major festival for all Hindus. This is called Krishna Janmashtami. It is also known by other names. Like - Krishnashtami, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Sri Krishna Jayanti, Sri Jayanti etc. But most people call it 'Janmashtami'. Hindus celebrate this festival in the form of Lord Krishna's birth as incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Krishna was born in his maternal uncle's house at 12 o'clock in the night. According to the Krishna Janmashtami Hindu calendar, the Shravan (Sawan) falls in the Rohini Nakshatra on the Ashtami day of Krishna's part of the month. This festival falls in August and sometime in September, this year it falls on 30th August’2021. A day before Krishna Janmashtami, people keep fasting to Saptami and at 12 o'clock in the middle of the night, after Krishna's birth, playing hours-gharial, they take the artisan of Shri Krishna. After that, all the people express their happiness by distributing the offerings of God to their neighbors and relatives. Then they eat themselves This festival is celebrated keeping the fast all day long.

On Lord Krishna Janmashtami, children decorate carousel in front of their homes. They tend to tender little Krishna in the carpet or jhula. Make brackets prison. In it, they set up Devaki and Vasudev, they deploy soldiers outside the prison. Similarly, they keep other toys around them. Many people come around to see them. There is a fair look. Where there is more space there are also swings and toy sellers. Children watch the roundabout along with swing and buy toys and so on. Children, especially on Janmashtami, are very excited because they get to buy various types of toys and decorate them with hinjola. There are also many places of Krishna-Leela, i.e. mainly Mathura's birthplace temple and temple of Banquehari are main.

It is said that when Krishna was born all the guards of the prison had slept, the deities of Devaki-Vasudev were opened automatically and prison doors were opened automatically. Then Akashwani told Vasudev that he would now call Krishna the Gokul. After that, Krishna's father, Vasudev Krishna, moved into the soup and crossed the river in the rainy season and took Gokul and left Nand there. Everyone views this as a miracle of Krishna. Varna Kans had killed seven brothers of Krishna as soon as they were born. Krishna then killed many monsters, including the arc, from childhood to youth and saved his devotees. This is the reason that people believe in him as the incarnation of God and worship him and worship him. Thus, the festival of Krishna Janmashtami is ananda¸ a festival of unity in communal harmony and diversity.

Krishna Janmashtami is observed on the Ashtami tithi, the eighth day of the dark half or Krishna Paksha of the month of Shraavana in the Hindu.

Rasa Leela रासलीला, are a special feature in regions of Mathura and Vrindavan, and regions following Vaishnavism in Manipur. Rasa lila is a stage program of Krishna’s youthful days. To reach a high-hanging pot of butter and break it is a tradition. It is a major event in Tamil Nadu on Gokulashtami.

Janmashtami, popularly known in Mumbai and Pune as Dahi Handi. It is celebrated with enormous zeal and enthusiasm. Handis are set up around the city, and groups of youngsters, called Govinda Pathaks, travel around in trucks trying to break as many handis as possible during the day. In Gujarat where the city Dwarka has Dwarkadhish temple celebrates it with pomp and joy.

In the eastern state of Orissa, around Puri and West Bengal in Nabadwip, people celebrate it with fasting and doing puja at midnight. Purana Pravachana from Bhagavata Purana are done from the 10th Skandha which deals with pastimes of Lord Krishna. The next day is called Nanda Utsav or the joyous celebration of Nanda Maharaj and Yashoda Maharaani. On that day people break their fast and offer various cooked sweets during the early hour.

Krishnashtami brings much joy and feeling of unity. It considered to be a worship of Lord Krishna. Sri Krishna laid down advices and sermons in Gita. Every word uttered in this book always gave inspiration to fight against the injustice.

Celebration of Janmashtami

The tale of Krishna's birth is recited and remembered from temples and households. The story signifies the divine power of lord Krishna. Devotional songs are sung which are dedicated to lord Krishna. Cities all over India get into a trance like mode. People visit temples at night, joint their hands and bow their heads in front of Krishna's idol with enormous faith.

A small cradle is placed with a miniature Krishna's idol in it as a symbol of his birth. Devotees swing the cradle joyously and celebrate the arrival of Shri Krishna by reciting aarti (prayer) and bhajans. Devotees fast for the whole long day, they break their fast in the midnight or on the next day. The fast is usually a waterless fast. Fragrance of the flowers, soothing aroma of burning camphor and jingle of the temple bells fill the atmosphere with divinity.

Importance of Janmashtami

The verses in the Bhagavad-Gita (a sacred book narrated by Lord Vishnu) say, that whenever there will be predominance of evil and decline of religion, he will reincarnate to kill the evil and to save the good. The main significance of Janmashtami is to encourage goodwill and to discourage bad will. Krishna Jayanti also celebrates togetherness. The holy occasion brings people together, thus it signifies unity and faith.

Why do we celebrate Dahi Handi?

Dahi Handi is celebrated on the second day of Janmashtami. Shri Krishna, as a child was very naughty. He loved butter. He would steal butter prepared by the gopis. (young women in Gokul) When the gopis complained to his foster mother Devaki, she ran behind him with a stick in hand to punish him. She could not catch infant Krishna. She decided to tie him with a rope. Krishna allowed her to tie him as he knew that his mother loves him a lot. She did not punish him. She scolded Krishna and told him not to steal butter again. Krishna's charismatic smile made her heart melt. She hugged little Krishna. Thus, little Krishna got the name, Makhanchor (one who steals butter) due to this. Krishna is also fondly called as Devakinandan (Devaki's son).

Dahi Handi is celebrated to mimic the stealing of butter by Krishna. An earthen pot containing butter, ghee (milk fat), dry fruits and milk is hung at a height with the help of a rope. Energetic men make a human pyramid and climb on each other to reach the pot and the break the pot. Later Dahikala (ingredients in the pot) is distributed among everyone. Dahi Handi celebration encourages working in a team, thus signifies the importance of teamwork.

Every aspect of Krishna's life is captivating no matter whether it is naughtiness of an infant Krishna, Krishna's life in Gokul, Krishna's romance with Radha or assassination of cruel Kans. God never asks for material things. A deity wants attention from his devotees. Devote yourself fully towards lord Krishna and make this Janmashtami special.

The message of Janmashtami is to become inquisitive and become a Gyaani (knowledgeable one).

What is life? What is the World? – this is inquisitiveness. Who am I? – this is knowledge. Develop an interest in knowledge and meditate. One who meditates alone becomes wise. If you don't meditate you can't be wise, because you don't know a dimension that is deep within you. If you are unaware of your center, how can you be wise? Wisdom means recognizing your center, recognizing the very focal point of your existence.

In every facet of human existence, if you want to see completeness, the example is Lord Krishna. This Janmashtami, know that you have Krishna inside of you, and knowing this repose in yourself. We see Krishna outside and do pooja, that is fine to begin with. But as you proceed on the spiritual path, see Krishna within. He will help you seek peace and love within yourself. Once you gain the confidence in him and want all his blessings over you, one can chant with the sacred tulsi mala available to you on My Pooja Box, containing 108 beads which completes one round of mala. After much practice and dedication people reach do 16 rounds of mala per day for prosperity and wellness with family.
