Why We Celebrate Krishna Janmashtami | Private Detective Chandigarh
Janmashtami: The birthday of Lord Krishna
Janmashtami is an important festival celebrated throughout the country. It marks the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna who is believed to be the eighth avatar of Vishnu. The festival celebration takes place on the eight days of the dark fortnight of the month of Shravana as per Hindu calendar.
The incarnation of Krishna marks the end of darkness and rooting out of the evil forces dominating the earth. It is said that he was a true Brahmin who had reached Nirvana. Krishna is known to be blue in color where blue like the sky marks the infinite potential and power of the Lord. His yellow clothes represent the color of the earth when introduced into a colorless flame. A pure, infinite consciousness was born as Krishna to eliminate the evil and revive the goodness.
The enchanting music of the flute played by Krishna is symbolic of divinity. The grown Krishna later returned to Mathura where he killed Kansa and put an end to his evil deeds. Gita’s preaching of disciplined actions without any attachment to the outcome is the fundamental principle taught in Bhagwat Gita.
