After the celebration of Rakshabandhan, we now wait for the day of Bal Gopal aka Lord Krishna. While there is some confusion regarding the muhurta of Shri Krishna Janmashtami, the doubts about this festival have been cleared. The festival of Shri Krishna Janmotsav will be celebrated for two days in 2022. The festival of Janmashtami is celebrated on Bhadrapada Krishna Ashtami. Lord Shri Krishna was born at the end of Dwapar on the Ashtami Tithi of Krishna Paksha of Bhadrapada month. According to mythological belief, Shri Krishna is considered to be a complete incarnation of Lord Vishnu with all the major 16 kalas out of the Dashavatars. According to the Acharyas, fasting leads to getting rid of sins and in the end, one gets a place in Baikunth.  Celebrate Gokulashtami by Sending WhatsApp Messages, Greetings, Krishna Jayanti Quotes, Wallpapers & SMS to Family and Friends
