Lord Krishna-Janmashtami

Lord Krishna-Janmashtami

Janmashtami – 14th August 2017

Shri Krishna the embodiment of love, valor, energy, youthful exuberance, naughtiness, devotion to mother and motherland and most of all the incarnate of Lord Vishnu took human form on the midnight on the Ashtami or the 8th day of the Krishnapaksha or dark fortnight in the Hindu month of Shravan (August-September).

This auspicious day is called Janmashtami. Indian as well as Western scholars have now accepted the period between 3200 and 3100 BC as the period in which Lord Krishna lived on earth.

Gokul, Vrindavan, Dwaraka, and Indians all over the world celebrate the birth of their Lord with zeal and enthusiasm.

Janmashtami without Rohini Nakshatra

Parana which means breaking the fast should be done at an appropriate time. For Krishna Janmashtami fasting, Parana is done on next day after Sunrise when Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra are over. If Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra don’t get over before Sunset then fast can be broken during day time when either Ashtami Tithi or Rohini Nakshatra is over. When neither Ashtami Tithi nor Rohini Nakshatra is over before Sunset or even Hindu Midnight (also known as Nishita Time) one should wait to get them over before breaking the fast.

Radhe Radhe bolo Krishna Daude Chale Ayenge!
