krishnaMaha Vishnu took various avatars to protect the mortal world from the evildoers and sinners. One such incarnation was his birth as the child of King Vasudeva and Queen Devaki Devi. Gokul Ashtami is the birthday of Lord Krishna. It falls on the 8th day of the dark half of the month of ‘Bhadrapada’ (August-September) and is one of the greatest of all Hindu festivals. Lord Krishna was born at midnight.

Janmashtami is about the joy, people all over the world feel for their beloved Lord Krishna. Gokulashtami (Sri Krishna Jayanthi) falls on 8th day after Avani Avittam function. Normally on this auspicious occassion people will fast from the morning and during the sunset, they will do pooja for Lord Krishna by offering lots of sweets and neivedhyams. Butter is favourite for Lord krishna and hence people will offer milk, curd, buter, Aval, fruits and some more sweets to God on this special day. During Krishna’s childhood, he is fond of butter and he will steal the butter from pots which will spill out in the floor and when he walks, it forms a nice palm prints. So keeping this in mind, the devotees will draw small footprints from the entrance of house to the pooja room.

On the evening during the sunset, devotees will do pooja for Lord Krishna and offer the Lord with butter,fruits,vella seedai, Cocunut Seedai , Uppu Seedai, Appam, Thattai,Aval and some more delicious foods.

It is a wonderful job rightly done. Gods and Gurus and Periava are certainly pleased. Along with MP3 can you please send the puja textin sanskrit PDF format. It will certainly refine the karmas

Thank you very much! Great service, motivating us to do these important poojas the right way! My sincere gratitudes and pranam to you all.

Dear Sri V. Sriram Ghanapatigal, Thank you very much for these MP3 downloads. I found these very useful, practical and relatively easy to follow. Your service is greatly appreciated.

A small request for future recordings – in certain areas the slogams are long and not enough pause for us to repeat. If you could please consider this as some of us (like me) are born in Brahmin family but did not do the basics when we were young and now in our 50s wanting to do these pujas properly. With location (UK), time (working day) and other constrains unable to hire a priest to do it properly. Your MP3 are the best we have.

Thank you once again for this great service to the Brahmin community.



R. Sundaram · August 25, 2016 at 2:24 pm

The audio is clear
We did the pooja with its help.
Please continue your service.

Excellent way of presenting the Puja but I am able to get full version of Balakrishna Puja at the end regarding the Dhupa Deepa and nivedham manthras after playing and downloading the site. Also I wish to know when the Uttranga Puja has to be performed on the same day or next day. Thanks

Murali · September 3, 2016 at 2:28 am

Rama · September 6, 2016 at 9:08 am
