Krishna appeared in Mathura, on the eighth day of waning moon (krishnapaksha, ashtamitithi) in the month of Shravana, as the eighth son of Vasudeva and Devaki. This day is celebrated as Sri Krishna Janmashtami. Many thousands of pilgrims will be visiting Sri Mayapur to have darshan of Sri Radha-Madhava and to partake in the midnight Maha abhisheka. The celebration is for 3 days, the adhivas on the day before Janmastami, Janmastami festival and Nandostava on the day after Janmastami. We invite everyone to participate in the celebrations and partake in the transcendental service to the Lord and receive His blessings.
Your devotion and generosity has always made Janmashtami a very significant and jubilant event, touching the lives of thousands of pilgrims. On the day of Janmastami, Sri Radha-Madhava and Asta Sakhis will be offered two sets of new outfits and jewellery, gorgeous flower decorations and a bhoga of atleast 108 items and a big birthday cake. Book your seva right now and be fortunate to serve the Lord, His devotees and His dear cows in the holiest of dhams, Sri Mayapur.
