In Hindu dharma, Lord Vishu’s manifestation Lord Krishna’s birthday is celebrated every year as Janmashtami. This festival is celebrated not only in India but abroad as well. The devotees of Lord Krishna display ‘Jhankis’ and worship him. As per Hindu Panchang, Lord Krishna’s birthday is celebrated every year on ‘Ashtami Tithi’ of ‘Krishan Paksh’ of ‘Bhadrapad’ month which according to the English calendar falls in August or September.
This year the festival is being celebrated today, August 30. The devotees observe fast on this day and spend their day worshipping Shri Krishna. They will end their fast according to ‘Paran Mahurat’ after offering ‘Bhog’ to Krishna.
In Hindu shastra, Janmashtami fast is considered ‘Vratraj’, which means keeping a fast on this day gives better results than fasts kept the entire year. Hence, if you, too, are planning to fast this year, you should have these things during your puja.
