Janamashtmi Krishna Birthday
. Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna is celebrated with great devotion and enthusiasm in India in the month of July or August. According to the Hindu calendar, this religious festival is celebrated on the Ashtami of Krishna Paksh or the 8th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadon.
Krishnas Birth story
. Sri Krishna was born in a prison in the custody of Kansa. Vasudev, his father immediately thought of his friend Nand and decided to hand over his child to him to save Krishna from the clutches of Kansa. Krishna grew up in Gokul and finally killed his uncle, King Kansa.
Celebrating the festival
. The actual celebration of Janmashtami takes place during the midnight as Sri Krishna was born on a dark, stormy and windy night to end the rule and violence of his uncle, Kansa. All over India this day is celebrated with devotional songs and dances, pujas, and aarti.
Birth place of Lord Krishna
. The Janmashtami celebration of Mathura and Vrindavan is special, since Sri Krishna had spent most of his life here. On this day temples and homes are wonderfully decorated and illuminated. Night long prayers are offered and religious mantras are sung in the temples.
How to Celebrate the festival
. Festivities begin before dawn and extend all day until midnight, the exact moment of the anniversary of Krishna's appearance. Events include kirtan, singing the Lord's name along with other devotees. Some devotees cook a feast of over one hundred dishes, while others perform drama and dance.
Preparation for the festival 1
. The home should be clearned and decorate it with flowers and other items. You should pay particular attention to the 'puja ghar' and also the kitchen and the drawing room. The other items that you can use to decorate are the idols and sculptures of Lord Krishna.
Preparation for the festival 2
. Put the idol of baby Krishna in a cradle and decorate it with flowers and jewels. You can blow the conches at midnight to symbolize the birth hour of Lord Krishna . Further, the deity is invoked by offering milk products in addition to flowers.
Create the birthday atmosphere at home
. Decorating your home for Krishna can be fun, particularly for children. Encourage them in helping to make garlands, hanging balloons and festoons of leaves, and generally making the house beautiful for Krishna's appearance. In some parts of India, this is also a occassion to run a contest for most beautiful decoration of house or temples.
Sing and Dance
. Celebrate this as festival of devotional songs and dance performances by young children. Krishna, also known as Murlidhara, or “one who holds the flute,” loves music. And so will your friends and family, as you take turns singing and playing instruments. Alternatively, play bhajan CDs and heighten the spiritual atmosphere.
Cooking special dishes
. it's always nice to cook very special preparations to offer to the Lord. Imagine that Krishna was actually right there, in your house, what would you offer Him? This makes for a wonderful meditation while cooking on Janmashtami.
Aarti at midnight
. Have a midnight aarti with a kirtan. This is the exact time that Krishna appeared on this planet, so it is most auspicious and spiritually inspiring. If you have aarti paraphernalia, then you can do a full offering. If not, don't worry, Krishna says in Bhagavad-Gita, “If you offer Me with love, a leaf, flower, fruit or water, I will accept it.” So offer whatever you can, it's your love and devotion that matters.
Fasting for the day
. If you are able to fast from food, fasting until midnight is recommended. If fasting is too difficult, then try to eat only light foods during the day. By putting our own needs aside and concentrating more on Krishna's, we show our love for him.
Gift for elders and friends
. Janmashtami is not just as festival. It is the time to rejoice in the glory of Lord Sri Krishna and his achievements. Gifting your friends and relatives is a primary aspect of the festival. This will appropriately convey your feelings towards your friends and relatives and show respect and care for your elders.
