krishna Janmashtami Celebration
What do we learn from Krishna Janmashtami
Krishna Janmashtami each year, since thousands of years has been reminding us to celebrate the historical, the divine and the adorable Lord Sri Krishna along with the timeless and invaluable knowledge He gave us through his life and the divine Bhagavad Gita.Lord Sri Krishna was inexplicably attractive and enthralling. There are countless fascinating stories to direct that the Divine is attractive. This is so that the little attractions that the mind longs for are freed and that is why he is called Man Mohana. The Taste of love hooks you on to the infinity, to the Divinity and intoxicates you. The power of the cosmos with the knowledge brings not only stability but also infinite bliss in life.Krishna always stands with absolutely unflinching perfect balance with one foot firmly on the ground, the other foot crossed over,seemingly touching the ground, but in reality it doesnt. Life is all about balance. Through various stages of His life Lord Sri Krishna shows all His devotees how to balance materialism and spirituality. He ruled the country, advised as minister and gave the highest form knowledge to Arjuna and Uddhava. Hence the most authentic way of celebrating Janamashtami is knowing that you have to play a dual role of being a responsible human being on the planet and at the same time to realize that you are above all events, the untouched Brahman. This could perhaps be the secret of Krishna forever lovely, divine and the all knowledgeable smile, even though his life was fraught with troubles since His birthImbibing a bit of avadhoot and a bit of activity in your life is the real significance of celebrating Janamashtami.On the auspicious occasion of Sri Krishna Janamashtami, let us imbibe all His values in our lives and make ours as well as others lives better.
