New Delhi | Jagran Lifestyle Desk: The festival of Krishna Janmashtami is being celebrated across the country today (Wednesday). The festival is celebrated to mark the birth of Lord Krishna, who was the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu, of the Great Trinity of Hinduism. Also known as Gokulashtami, the festival of Krishna Janmashtami is celebrated in the month of Bhadrapada.   

The festival of Janmashtami is widely celebrated across the country and more predominantly in northern India and Maharashtra.  Special poojas were organised on this day to honour Lord Krishna. On Janmashtami, people worship ‘Bal Gopal’, the childhood form of Lord Krishna, and offer him Prasad and bhog. Idols of Bal Gopal are washed like a child and placed in a cradle. Devotees also observe fast on this day to impress Lord Krishna and seek his blessings.   

Janmashtami is hugely celebrated in India. However, this time you won’t be able to celebrate that much because of the ongoing coronavirus crisis and thus you are advised to stay at home. But don’t worry, you can still wish your friends and family on this auspicious day by sending them some cute messages and quotes to celebrate the joy of Janmashtami:
