Janmashtami-Lord Krishna birth

Janmashtami-Lord Krishna birth

Janmashtami is celebrated for the Lord Krishna birth on this earth. People all over the world enjoy this festival with great joy and fervor. Indeed, it is a happy and joyous festivity to welcome the newborn baby God on earth. It is said that when the God was born, all the planets were in favorable condition and auspicious condition. Legends reveal that God selects a particular time to come on the earth. He decides as to when he would step into the world and thus the planets are adjusted. We are all aware that Janmashtami is the birthday of Shyamji. But most of us do not know about the planets, ‘nakshatra’, place of Krishna birth and the main objective behind this ‘avatar’. So, let us together unfurl the mystery that led to the Krishna birth. Let us find out about the events before and after the birth of Shri Krishna. Eventually, we will definitely know about the weather condition while the God took birth. Around the time of Krishna birth, the constellation or nakshatra called ‘rohini’ was in the auspicious state as it was managed by Lord Brahma—the ultimate creator of the universe. Some other scholars opine that Bal Gopal was born on the 8th day of second fortnight in the month of Shravana. It was around 3227 BC and the year of Visvavasu. The age was known as Iron Age or Dwapur Yug.

Janmashtami commemorates the earthly appearance of Krishna, who is described in India’s sacred writings as God Himself. One of the biggest religious festivals in the world, it is celebrated by nine hundred and thirty million people around the world--and two million in the US alone. To devotees, it’s Christmas and New Year’s in one, a day of deep spiritual renewal and celebration that effectively finishes an old year and begins a fresh one.

But why Janmashtami, you may ask? What’s so special about Krishna, as opposed to any other form of God? It’s His personableness. For every devotee who offers Him love, He reciprocates in uniquely human ways. He is a mischievous son, a romantic lover, a compassionate friend. And on Janmashtami, devotees celebrate Krishna in all of these aspects. For just as Krishna reciprocates individually with His relatives and confidantes, he responds to the distinct feelings and desires held most deeply in the heart of every single worshipper.

So remember that whatever way you worship Krishna on Janmashtami, He will reciprocate with you accordingly. It’s a meditation that makes for an extremely rewarding devotional experience.
