Krishna Janmashtami like Ganesh Chaturthi, Holi, Diwali and Dushehra is celebrated grandly across India. Makhan, Peda, Murruku, Mishri, Barfi and Chappan Bhog are offered to Lord Krishna. With divine Krishna bhajans & mesmerising decorations at Krishna bhakts’ homes and in all temples. Krishna Himself is a “Purna Avatara,” complete and happy-go-lucky in all aspects! Lord Krishna was born at midnight on the eighth day of Hindu lunar month- Shravan. Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Shri Krishna is celebrated splendidly with lots of love and devotion of Shri Krishna bhakts.


                      !!! Celebrate Krishna Janmashtami at Home!!!

It is our heartfelt sincere devotion that pleases Lord Krishna the most. Invite all your friends and family to participate in the festivities of Krishna Janmashtami.
Decorate your home for Lord Sri Krishna. It can be fun, particularly for children. You dress your children as little Krishna. Encourage them in helping to make garlands, hanging torans, and generally making the house beautiful for Krishna’s appearance.
Lord Krishna loves music. Everyone at home could together sing bhajans and aartis of Lord Krishna.

                    Krishna Janmashtami Pooja Vidhan

Nishita Puja time (Night Pooja):24:00 to 24:45+
Next day Parana time on 26th : 10:52 (After Sunrise)(breaking fast)

You could also chant the Hare Krishna maha-mantra on your Tulasi Mala prayer beads. This is believed to be an intimate one-to-one exchange with Krishna, and makes you feel much closer to the Lord.
If you have Radha-Krishna deities, get extra beautiful new clothes for them. Be creative and pay special attention to decorating their sacred altar.
Recreate the temple program and hold an abhisheka bathing ceremony for your deities with yogurt, honey, ghee and bathe the deity with them while singing devotional songs.
Temples prepare at least 108 different dishes on Janmashtami. Imagine that Krishna was actually right there, in your house—what would you offer Him? This makes for a wonderful thought while cooking on Janmashtami.
Have a midnight Arati (worship ceremony) at home with a kirtan. This is the exact time that Lord Krishna appeared on earth, so it is most auspicious and spiritually inspiring. If you have a baby Krishna at home put Him lovingly on a cradle befitting the size of the idol and swing him slowly like you would treat your baby.

The Basic Things & Timings which you need to keep in mind during Krishna Janmashtami 2016 Fasting

Lord Krishna’s Pooja starts at midnight and commences with Abhisheka of Krishna idols with items such as Gangajal, ghee, honey, water and curd. Several food items are offered to the Lord during the pooja. Devotees must observe a strict fast on the day and night of Janmashtami, and eat only fruits, sweet and milk if necessary. Some of them observe a Nirjala fast which means going without water for the entire day. Devotional songs or bhajans dedicated to the Lord are sung by the priests and the devotees during the pooja rituals, in order to seek the Lord’s blessings. The different mantras of the Lord are also chanted repeatedly during Janmashtami.
