Janmastami a wonderful time to forget all our troubles and immerse ourselves in the spiritually enlightening pastimes of the Lord Himself.

A beautiful description of the most auspicious occasion of Sri Krishna’s appearance is found in the ancient Bhagavata Purana:

“On the night Krishna was born, all directions were peaceful. Auspicious stars shone in the sky and rivers flowed full of water, beautifully decorated with blooming lotus flowers. Birds in the forests sang and peacocks danced, the wind blew pleasantly and flowers rained from the sky. Angels and celestial beings rejoiced, offering prayers, dancing and singing. At the seashore there was the sound of mild waves and above the sea the clouds thundered pleasantly while the full moon rose in the sky.”

To this day, this wonderful event is joyously celebrated. Festivities are vibrant and colourful and can continue for several weeks with music, chanting, dancing and dramatic displays. Temples and homes are festively decorated and cities overflow with pilgrims, especially Vrindavan and Mathura in Uttar Pradesh and Dvaraka in Gujarat. The celebrations culminate with the abisheka or bathing ceremony of Krishna.

On Krishna’s Appearance Day we thank Krishna for appearing in this world. We celebrate by meditating on His glories and pastimes, and singing His beautiful holy Names. We would like to invite you to participate in the joyous celebration of Sri Krishna Janmastami.
