Iskcon Panihati cordially invites you to the opulent celebration of Sri Krishna Janmashtami which is on 3rd September, 2018. Lord Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 4 Verse 7) that whenever there is a decline in religious practice and the predominant rise of irreligion, at that time, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna, descends Himself. In order to deliver the pious and annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, He advents Himself millennium after millennium.
Thus, about more than 5000 years ago, (on 21st July, 3228 BCE, according to computer astrology) in the Rohini nakshatra, in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada , on the 8th day of the waning moon at midnight, Krishna’s advent in this earth planet took place for the sake of deliverance of the mother earth from the burden of defiant demons who being maddened by the lust of power, promoted atheism and irreligiosity and inflicted pains upon the Lord’s dear devotees. During the Sri Krishna Janmashtami festival, the devotees thus take great pleasure in remembering and discussing about the incomparable feats performed by Krishna in killing the demons and protecting His dear devotees.
Like every year, this year also, Iskcon Panihati is going to organize Sri Krishna Janmashtami festival with great fervour and gaiety on 3rd September, 2018. Cultural event, quiz competition, heart-melting Krishna Katha and ecstatic bhajans and kirtans are the major highlights of this year’s Janmashtami festival. Therefore, we cordially invite all of you to be a part of this year’s majestic Sri Krishna Janmashtami festival and experience immense joy in your hearts.
