About Janmastami:
Janmashtami commemorates the earthly appearance of Krishna, who is described in the scriptures as the Supreme Personality of God Himself. One of the biggest religious festivals in the world, it is celebrated by approximately nine hundred and thirty million people around the world–and about two million in the US alone.

But why Janmashtami, one may ask? What’s so special about Krishna, as opposed to any other form of God? It’s His personable-ness. He reciprocates in unique and personal way with every devotee who offers Him love—He is the most adorable, mischievous son, the most romantic lover, the most compassionate friend. And on Janmashtami, devotees celebrate Krishna in all of these aspects. For just as Krishna reciprocates individually with His relatives and confidantes, he responds to the distinct feelings and desires held most deeply in the heart of every single worshipper.

So remember that whatever way you worship Krishna on Janmashtami, He will reciprocate with you accordingly. It’s a meditation that makes for an extremely rewarding devotional experience.
