Festivals - Sri Krishna Janmashtami,Aug 23rd




LORD KRISHNA, THE EIGHTH AVTAR OF VISHNU WAS BORN IN the Duapar Yug which came just before Kal Yug (the yug in which we find ourselves today). His birthday falls on the Ashtami of Krishna Paksh or the 8th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadon (eight days after Raksha Bandhan), some time in July or August, according to the English calendar.
