Krishna Janmashtmi celebrates the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna, the eight avtaar of Lord Vishnu. On the auspicious Day of Krishna Janmashtami, we present you with these 7 Great Lessons on Life to conquer the world and attain peace, that our ‘Kanhaiyya’, proposed in Treta Yuga.
The festival is celebrated on the eight day of the Krishna Paksha of the month Shravan (August – September) in Hindu calendar.
Devotees celebrate this festival by fasting and staying up until midnight, when Krishna is believed to have been born. While Dahi Handi celebrates the joyful and mischiveous nature of Krishna, Raas Lila comemmorates the flirtatious dimension of his character from his youthful days.
Srimad Bhagavad Gita, a narrative form of dialogues between Arjuna, a Pandava prince and Krishna, his mentor and charioteer written in Sanskrit enlightens people about the concept of Dharma, Bhakti, Karma and Yogic ideals.
With the advent of time, Sanskrit language is losing its popularity and to our dismay, the lessons from Bhagavad Gita are fading away from our lives.
On the eve of Janmashtmi, we bring you a bucket list of life lessons from Bhagavad Gita that we should always remember to lead a happy and righteous life.
