Krishna Janmashtami

Happy birthday Lord Krishna, yes celebrating his birthday of countless years, as tonight at midnight he’s born, giving way to a time for fasting and singing. In devotee homes you can find today washed and cleaned statues of Baby Krishna as part of the worship, and once the fasting is broken there comes the festivity of plenty, with food and sweets.  One of the most pompous holidays taking place across India and not only, as the Dahi Handi celebrations took place and rituals take place to welcome Lord Krishna.

In Mathura and Vrindavan, where Krishna was believed to be born and spend childhood with his parents Queen Devaki and her husband, King Vasudeva, until he was discovered to be the 8th reincarnation of the Supreme God Vishnu. Incarnating qualities such as love, compassion and care, but also a prankster, often portrayed as a child. In Mathura and Vrindavan  are the greatest celebrations, and go on for days.
