Happy Janamashtmi

The festival of Srikrishna Janmashtami is directly associated with the birth of Lord Shri Krishna, the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu. Every year, Lord Krishna’s birthday is celebrated on the 8th day of Bhadrapada month’s Krishan Paksha (waning phase of the Moon). According to the English calendar, this time usually falls in August–September. In 2021, this holy festival will be celebrated on August 30 on Monday.

Born to Devaki on the Ashtami Tithi (eighth day), almighty Lord Krishna incarnated on this mortal world when Rohini Nakshatra prevailed. This year, devotees will be blessed to celebrate the 5248th birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. Read this blog and learn more about the things associated with Krishna Janmashtami.

Srikrishna Janmashtami – The Birth of Almighty

The holy day of Janmashtami is also known by various names, such as ‘Gokulashtami,’ Ashtami Rohini,’ Sree Jayanthi,’ Krishnashtami,’ and Srikrishna Jayanti. Although Janmashtami is celebrated in all parts of the world, it has a special association with Mathura, where Lord Krishna incarnated in a human body. All of us know the story of King Kansa, the birth of Lord Krishna, his Leela in Mathura, and the killing of Kansa by Krishna ji.

Janmashtami is the day when devotees and believers keep on fasting the whole day to pay their respect to the almighty. The mission of Lord Krishna’s life (avatar) has been described in the following 7 and 8 verses of Sanskrit written in Chapter 4 of the holy Gita.

Sanskrit version

यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् ॥4-7॥
परित्राणाय साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम् ।
धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे ॥4-8॥

English version

Yada yada hi dharmasya glanirbhavati bharata
Abhythanamadharmasya tadatmanam srijamyaham
Paritranaya sadhunang vinashay cha dushkritam
Dharmasangsthapanarthay sambhabami yuge yuge

Hindi translation

मैं अवतार लेता हूं. मैं प्रकट होता हूं. जब जब धर्म की हानि होती है, तब तब मैं आता हूं.
जब जब अधर्म बढ़ता है तब तब मैं साकार रूप से लोगों के सम्मुख प्रकट होता हूं,
सज्जन लोगों की रक्षा के लिए मै आता हूं,  दुष्टों के विनाश करने के लिए मैं आता हूं,
धर्म की स्थापना के लिए में आता हूं और युग युग में जन्म लेता हूं.|
