On Sri Krishna Janmashtami, we celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu. Janmashtami is held on the eighth day (Ashtami) of Krishna Paksha (waning phase) of the Bhadrapada month, which generally falls in August or September, according to the Hindu lunar calendar.
It is observed across the country, but the celebrations in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh, particularly in Mathura and Vrindavan, are special and visual delight.
Many people observe a fast on Janmashtami. When both Rohini Nakshatra and Ashtami Tithi are over, the fast is concluded. People visit temples to seek blessings from Lord Krishna. On this auspicious day, followers organize plays and dance events based on Lord Krishna’s life and the renowned tale of his birth is told at Hindu temples.
