Lord Krishna is Born

According to Hinduism, Krishna was the 8th avatar of Vishnu, and his birth marked the start of Kalyuga, the world we live in. Janmashtami or Gokulashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna is celebrated with great devotion and enthusiasm in India. Per the Hindu calendar, this religious festival is celebrated on the Ashtami of Krishna Paksh or the 8th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadrapad (lunisolar calendar) or Shraavan (lunar calendar). We offer milk, white butter or ghee, curd, jaggery, coconut, fruits, dry fruits and flowers.
