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. Gokulashtami 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.

    Thank you very much sir. We had been following this site for the past 4 plus years and your service is humongous. For almost every pooja we get the pooja vidhi’s and sankalpams that are very important. This helps in continuing to carry on with the tradition and our culture to the next generation. Thank you again.

    Namaskaram. A dedicated service for the bradman community.
    A must for all our puja and celebrations.
    More importantly, it is a learning and performing experience for devotees,their families and extremely relevant for children, to respect and learn the Hindu way of life
