LOTS OF HAPPY PILGRIMS. LOTS of ENTERTAINMENT. It’s a festival celebrating God who gave us the power of Love
Janmashtami is actually short for Shri Krishna Janmastami. Janmastami means birth (janam) on the eighth day (astami) after the full moon.
What is so special about it? Sri Krishna, described by all scriptures as the original source of all incarnations, appeared as a child from Devaki and Vasudeva, some 5000 years ago. This was in Mathura, India. “As stated in the Bhagavad-gita, the Lord says that His appearance, birth, and activities, are all transcendental, and one who understands them factually becomes immediately eligible to be transferred to the spiritual world. “ – Chapter 3: Birth of Lord Krishna, Krishna Book by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Lord Krishna Himself in Bhagavad gita, Chapter 4 text 8 describes the reason of His appearance as follows: paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam dharma-samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge To deliver the pious and annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of religion, I Myself appear millennium after millennium.
