Janmashtami

Devotees of Lord Krishna would be celebrating Janmashtami on 24th August 2019. Janmashtami marks the birth of Lord Krishna. It is said that Lord Krishna was born at midnight on the eighth day or 'Ashtami' of the holy month, Shravana, according to the Hindu calendar. Lord Krishna is the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu, who took birth as a son to Devaki and Vasudev to rid Mathura-wasis (People of Mathura) from the evil and merciless rule of King Kansa.

Born to Devaki and Vasudev, the little lord had to be taken away to the care and nurture of Yashoda and Nanda right at the time of his birth. It was prophesied that the eight son of Devaki and Vasudev would be the cause of Kansa's death. To stop the prophecy from coming true, the evil king had imprisoned Devaki and Vasudev, going on to kill all their six children. But his fate was doomed, and on the night of Krishna's birth, the Gods guided Vasudeva to carry little Krishna to Vrindavan to Yashoda and Nanda, where Krishna spent his childhood, and years later went on to take the life of Kansa as predicted.

At Vrindavan, Krishna was the most notorious child, known across the village for his mischief. Maakhan or white butter was Little Krishna's favourite. It is said that Mother Yashoda would herself feed Krishna his favourite delight Makhan Mishri (sweetened white butter) every day, but so fond was Krishna of Maakhan that he would even go stealing butter across his village as soon as it was churned, much to the dismay his mother, who had to ultimately tie him to a pole to keep him from stealing butter.

The impish act earned him the famous name 'Maakhan Chor'.

Raksha Bandhan
Raksha Bandhan is a festival that celebrates the love, bond, and duty between brothers and sisters. The word Raksha means ‘Protection’ and ‘Bandhan’ means ‘Knot’, basically Raksha Bandhan means the ‘Knot of protection’. The festival is observed on the full moon day of the Hindu month Shravan. On the day, sister ties ‘rakhi’ on her brother’s wrist and pray for his happiness and prosperity. The brother in return gives her a gift and a promise to protect her. Raksha Bandhan literally translates into 'the bond of protection'.

History:
It is believed that before the epic battle of Mahabharata, Draupadi tied a rakhi on Krishna's hand when he hurt his finger while setting off his sudarshan chakra against evil king Shishupala who had insulted the Lord over hundred times. As Krishna's slashed finger bled, Draupadi tore a piece from her sari and tied it around Krishna's hand. Krishna in return vowed to protect Draupadi against all adversities in future.

According to Bhavishya Purana, during the war between gods and demons, Lord Indra, the deity of the sky, rains and thunderbolts, defeated demon king Bali after his wife Sachi tied a thread around his wrist. The holy thread was blessed with prayers and was given to Sachi by Lord Vishnu. Since then the power of sacred thread became popular and women started tying it on men’s wrist to protect them from the evil spirit. 

Muhurat: 
Raksha Bandhan falls on August 15, 2019 (Thursday).

 
phulon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai
ek hazaron mein meri behna hai...
 
'Wishing all the brothers and sisters a very happy Raksha Bandhan.'
