Sri Krishna Janmashtami (Krishna Janmashtami) - the Day of the appearance of Krishna - is a significant Vedic holiday, which is celebrated very widely in India and is popular (despite even religion).
Krishna represents the absolute meaning of life, which is at the core of creation beyond everything. The Vedas consider Sri Krishna the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the cause of all causes. One of the translations in Sanskrit means "All Attractive".
Vyasadeva, the sage of enlightened vision and the greatest of the historians of antiquity, testified to the growth of unrighteousness in the families of those who ruled the people about five thousand years ago. It was then that Krishna came to remind man of the true values of life and way of life. He re-established that direct contact with the transcendental Being which alone can give fullness to every aspect of life. This is the teaching of the eternal Truth given by Krishna to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita.
Gradually, this teaching became forgotten, thousands of years later even the principle of Being was obscured by false beliefs that glorified only the relative aspects of life. "Large span of time," says Krishna, "is the reason for such a loss of wisdom."
Krishna appeared on Ashtami (8th lunar day) when Chandra (Moon) was waning. When the time of His birth came, all the planets were placed in the most favorable position. At that moment, a favorable atmosphere of peace and prosperity was established everywhere. Auspicious signs were visible in the sky, and happiness reigned on the earth of people. Krishna, although He is the source of material creation, He never touches matter and appears in His original spiritual body, which consists of eternity, knowledge and bliss.
