Importance of Krishna Janmashtami
Everyone is well acquainted with Lord Krishna’s legends. He has performed different glories at different stages of life and has saved people from the ravages of demons and evildoers. So, it is believed that people who observe a fast for Lord Krishna on Janmashtami and worship him with proper rituals are blessed with abundant happiness for a lifetime.
This is why people decorate their houses with flowers and diyas on this day. There is a grand celebration in Mathura and Vrindavan on this festival. Apart from this, Krishna Leelas are also performed in many places, in which the life of Lord Krishna is depicted. Lord Krishna was born in the middle of the night, therefore on Krishna Janmashtami, the idol of baby Krishna is bathed at midnight and then placed in the cradle and is swung.
Significance Of Dahi Handi Festival
We cannot talk about Lord Krishna without mentioning his love for butter, as it is his most favourite eatable. Krishna is known to have stolen butter from the pot numerous times in his childhood, and the Dahi Handi festival is celebrated to depict this form of Lord Krishna on the day of Krishna Janmashtami.
In the Dahi Handi festival, a pot full of curd is hung on a high wire, and people try to reach it by forming a human pyramid. In the end, they smash the pot and eat butter/curd from it just like Lord Krishna. At many places, this festival is celebrated as a competition where the winner gets a great prize.
