Hello there! It's that time of year again when you can hear joyful chants of "Radhe! Radhe!" reverberating from every corner of India in celebration of Krishna Janmashtami. This Hindu festival, which falls on September 6 to 7 this year, is a big deal across the country.

Let me take you back to ancient times, the Dwapar Yuga, when the beloved Krishna was born. His story has captivated hearts not only in India but also around the world. Kids set up little scenes depicting Krishna's life, like the one where his father Vasudeva carries him through a stormy river while the mighty Shesh Nag shields him from the rain.

According to the Hindu calendar, the Bhadrapada month begins on September 6, 2023, at 3:37 p.m., and the Ashtami Tithi ends at 4:14 p.m. on September 7, 2023.

The auspicious Nishita Puja mahurat starts on September 6, 2023, at 11:57 PM and ends on September 7 at 12:42 PM.

In Maharashtra, the highlight of the festival is the 'dahi-handi' tradition, where folks form human pyramids to break a pot filled with curd hanging in the air. In Mumbai alone, there are over 4000 dahi-handi events during this festive time.

This year marks the 5250th birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. Devotees from many states will worship the lord and participate in Dahi Handi, also known as Matki Fod, where they form human pyramids to break a clay pot filled with milk, curd, butter, fruits, and water, mimicking Krishna's playful act of stealing butter.

On the other side, ISKCON Bengaluru is all set for a three-day celebration from September 6 to September 8. They have special festivities planned at different locations, including Hare Krishna Hill and Vaikuntha Hill.

Shri Chanchalapati Dasa, Senior Vice President of ISKCON Bengaluru, said, “Our temples are spreading the spiritual vibes of Janmashtami. It's a fantastic opportunity for people to take a break from their busy lives and immerse themselves in this divine celebration."

So, get ready to soak in the spiritual energy of Janmashtami!

Jai Shri Krishna from Jobaaj Stories!
