On September 6, celebrations for Krishna's birthday begin.
The birth of Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu, is observed on the eighth day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadrapada.
It is a week after the first full moon after August 23.
The Hindu Calendar times are determined and published by Drik Panchang:
Ashtami Tithi will start on September 6 at 03:37 pm and will end on September 7 at 4:14 pm.
Rohini Nakshatra will start at 9.20 am on September 6 and end at 10.25 am on September 7.
In this way, there will be a coincidence of both Ashtami and Rohini Nakshatra at 12 o’clock in the night of 6th September.
Therefore, Krishna Janmashtami will be celebrated on September 6, as Krishna was born in the Rohini nakshatra.
The Dahi Handi celebrations will take place on September 7.
The Nishita Puja time is from 11:57 PM to 12:42 AM on September 7. This is the most auspicious time to worship Krishna on Janmashtami. The birth anniversary and worship of Laddu Gopal will be held until 12:42 AM. The Parana time, which is the time to break the fast, is at 4:14 PM on September 7.
There is an adventure in discovering Krishna and Hindu. Mine has certainly just begun.
