Greetings on Krishnashtami!

The birth of Lord Krishna is celebrated at midnight on Sri Krishna Jayanti (Krishnashtami). This year it falls on 3rd September 2007. The divine principle (tattva) of Lord Krishna is most active on this day of the year.

Lord Krushna was born on the eighth day (ashtami) of the Hindu lunar month of Shravan. Lord Krushna was an absolute incarnation (purnavtar). Actually an absolute incarnation is not an incarnation but The Lord Himself; hence it possesses all the characteristics of The Lord.

Significance behind the celebration

Krishna Jayanti is especially significant from the viewpoint of establishing Righteousness (Dharma), and surrendering unto The Lord.
Sage Ved Vyas said, "Where there is Krishna, there is Dharma, where there is Dharma, there is victory. Since Duryodhana, leader of the Kauravas, did not observe dharma, he did not have Krishna. No Krishna, no victory."

Not only is His principle (tattva) most active on Krishna Jayanti, but in present times His energy is 100% manifest, and He rushes to the aid of the devotee who surrenders unto Him. His devotee long to feel closer to Lord Krishna every day and not just on Sri Krishna Jayanti. To invoke Lord Krishna's principle the best solution is to repeat Lord Krishna's Name as follows: "Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya" continuously through every action.

Therefore, to derive maximum benefit from Krishna Jayanti, devotees can daily make conscious efforts through chanting and prayer to surrender at the Lord's lotus-feet. Such spiritual practice would equip one to participate in establishing Righteousness by spreading the importance of Spirituality to others, removing misconceptions about it and helping curb incorrect practices.
