Lord Krishna

Today, Krishna Janmashtami is being celebrated all over the country by worshiping Lord Krishna

LSD: Adherents of Vedic Sanatan Dharma are celebrating ‘Krishna Janmashtami’ today by worshiping Lord Krishna across the country. On this day, it is customary to worship, recite, sing hymns and fast all night in Krishna temples across the country.

Since the birth of Lord Krishna, the pioneer of Gyan Yoga, Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga, took place at midnight on Bhadrakrishna Ashtami in Dwaparayuga, today is called ‘Shrikrishna Janmashtami’ and night is called ‘Moharatri’.

On this day, worship of Lord Krishna, discourses, hymns are sung in Krishna temples all over the country and especially women and men fast and stay awake all night. Born as the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu to protect all human beings from injustice, oppression and demonic tendencies, Lord Krishna is believed to have inspired the human community to do good deeds in favor of lifelong truth.

On the day of Janmashtami, a big fair is held at the famous Krishna Temple at Mangal Bazaar in Patan. This year, however, there is still a risk of infection with the new variant of the corona virus.

The Lalitpur Municipal Corporation has published a notice stating that devotees will not be allowed to visit the temple. Similarly, a large number of devotees have been flocking to Navatandham in Kageshwari Manohara Municipality-8 in the northeastern part of the capital.

Devotees are also flocking to the Krishna Temple at the office of the Krishna Consciousness Association at Budhanilkantha in the northern region. On this occasion, the practice of holding processions and rath yatras with jhankis of Lord Krishna by various religious organizations in Kathmandu has also been affected this year.

On the occasion of this festival, the public holiday cut last year has been given again from this year. Arjuna, one of the Pandavas involved in the battle with the Kauravas in Kurukshetra, is considered to be the sacred text of the ‘Srimadbhagavatam Gita’ uttered by Lord Krishna himself while preaching. Also known as the Gita for short, it is believed to have been translated into most of the world’s languages.

It is mentioned in the Puranic scriptures that Lord Krishna, who has shown his bizarre style since childhood, has destroyed the demonic tendencies like Putna, Kansha, Jarasandha and Shishupal. It is also mentioned in various scriptures that Arjuna was incarnated in Kurukshetra to defend those who support the truth and to destroy those who support the untruth.

The practice of adorning children in the form of Lord Krishna from house to house is also on the rise in the Nepali community. There is no such program this time as the educational institution is closed as various schools are celebrating this festival by adorning the children as Lord Krishna on this occasion. On the occasion of this festival, the public holiday that was cut last year has been given again from this year.
