Sri Krishna Janmashtami celebration “Birth of Lord Krishna”
On Sunday Aug 29th, 2021 @ 7:00 PM to 12:30 AM
Sri Sivakameswari Temple is cordially inviting you and Your family to participate in the Celebrations of “Sri Krishna Janmashtami”. All Sponsors’ Names, Nakshatrams, & Gotrams will be recited by the
priests during the Sankalpa.
Janmashtami is the birthday of Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar(incarnation) of Lord Maha Vishnu. Lord Krishna was born to Devaki and Vasudeva at midnight in Rohini Nakshatra on Shraavana Bahula Ashtami. On Janmashtami day, devotees spend the day immersed in Sri Krishna’s glory by reading, reciting and singing His divine Leela. Children are adorned as Lord Krishna and Radha, his spiritual beloved. Mothers revel in recollecting the eternal motherly love of Yashoda, who
was Krishna’s adoptive mother. One of the main rituals is the breaking of Dahi Handi, which is also known as Utti. This ceremony replicates Krishna love for milk and butter. It symbolizes the breaking of our Ignorance, leading to enlightenment and bliss.
