Krishna Janmasthami Blessings
Happy Krishna Janmashtami from the Parmarth family!
Here are Swamiji’s beautiful words for this occasions: “Krishna Janmashtami is the celebration of the day that Bhagwan Krishna incarnated in human form upon the Earth. It is celebrated at midnight on the eighth day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadrapada (August-September). Today as people all over the world re-enact and celebrate his birth, let us also take this time to reflect and introspect upon how Lord Krishna can incarnate in our own lives. Let us reflect on how His divine light, His divine message and His divine grace can continue to shine, on and on, upon every moment and every minute of our own lives. His wisdom is such that it is timeless and eternal, infinite and universal. When we allow His wisdom and His message shine in our own lives then we can celebrate Janmashtami everyday. Additionally, as we celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna in human form let us also reaffirm our pledge to work together to make this world a place in which He can live, play and perform His leelas. Let us ensure that the beautiful trees, mountains, rivers and all of Mother Nature not only survive but thrive.”
