Happy Krishna Astami ... from Himal News

September 1, 2010: Krishna Astami or Janmashtmi also known as ”Gokulashtami“, “Ashtami Rohini”, “Srikrishna Jayanti“, “Sree Jayanthi” or simply as “Janmashtami“ is celebrated all over India by Hindu as the birthday of Lord Sri Krishna.

As the Legend would have it, over 5000 years ago in the 28th year of Dwapur Yug, Lord Sri Krishna was born in Mathura at midnight of the Astami tithi in Krishna paksha of Shravan month as per Hindu calendar (August-September) so the Astami is a celebrated as Krishna Jayanti.

In 2010, Janmashtami is celebrated today 1st September by the Gorkhas which is a day prior to what others in India celebrate.

Sri Krishna Puja is offered by Devotees at home and sweets are distributed as Prasad.
