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.

kindly write the pooja vidhanam for RISHI PANCHAMI VRATHAM UTHYAPANAM DETAILS WHICH FALLS ON 18-9-2015.

Krupa Hari · September 11, 2015 at 3:32 pm

Despite having Pooja vidhanam books at home, we do struggle with the procedure and the pronunciation of the shlokas. Sri Sriram Ganapatigal’s rendering, clear instructions, clarity in pronunciation ensured that our Janmashtami pooja went very well. There was a deep sense of satisfaction. Our gratitude and pranams to Sri Sriram Ganapatigal and Vedabhavan for this gesture. We request you to do the same for the other pandigais too, if possible.

Thank you.
