2016 Sri Krishna Janmashtami Pooja Mahurat Fasting Puja Vidhi Mantras

On this day, there is a special event which takes place at Mathura, Vrindavan and features dramatic enactments of the life of Lord Krishna. The Rasa lila shows the other flirtatious side of Lord Krishna during his young days. Devotees celebrate Dahi Handi festival which celebrates God’s playful side wherein he used to break the pot of curd which was kept at the height. Slowly and steadily, this tradition and ritual became a major event in some parts of India.

Krishna Janmashtami festival is followed by the festival Nandotsav, which is the occasion when Nanda Baba distributed gifts to the community in honour of the birth.

According to mythological stories, Sri Krishna was born in a prison in the custody of King Kansa. Lord Krishna’s father Vasudev, immediately thought of his friend Nand and handed over his child to his friend and saved his child’s life. Lord Krishna further grew up in Gokul and soon killed his uncle Kansa.

On this day, devotees have rigorous fasting and they should only have a single meal that too on the previous day. The devotees further also take a Sankalpa which is a one-day long fast which can be broken on the next day after Rohini Nakshatra and Ashtami Tithi gets over. The followers of lord Krishna observe fast and indulge in a ritual of placing Krishna’s idol in a cradle and sing devotional songs. Many also chant ‘Vishnu Sahasranamam’, Krishna Store and other shlokas of the Lord.

People who fast on the day of Janmashtami are supposed to consume one single time meal and they are even supposed to take a Sankalpa which must be taken after finishing the entire morning rituals. Devotees have to observe one day long fast. This fast further breaks the next day after Rohini Nakshatra and Ashtami Tithi gets over that is after sunrise.

2016 Krishna Janmashtami

Devotees, who observe fast on Janmashtami, should have only single meal a day before Janmashtami. On fasting day, devotees take Sankalpa to observe a day-long fast and to break it on the next day when both Rohini Nakshatra and Ashtami Tithi are over. Some devotees break the fast when either Rohini Nakshatra or Ashtami Tithi is over. Sankalpa is taken after finishing morning rituals and the day long fasting begins with Sankalpa.

The time to perform Krishna Puja is during Nishita Kala which is the midnight as per Vedic time-keeping. Devotees perform detailed ritualistic Puja during midnight and it involves all sixteen steps which are part of Shodashopachara (षोडशोपचार) Puja Vidhi. Please check Krishna Janmashtami Puja Vidhi which lists all Puja steps for Janmashtami along with Vedic Mantra to perform the Puja.

Fasting Rules on Krishna Janmashtami

No grains should be consumed during Janmashtami fasting until the fast is broken on next day after Sunrise. All rules followed during Ekadashi fasting should be followed during Janmashtami fasting also.

Parana which means breaking the fast should be done at an appropriate time. For Krishna Janmashtami fasting, Parana is done on next day after Sunrise when Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra are over. If Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra don’t get over before Sunset then fast can be broken during day time when either Ashtami Tithi or Rohini Nakshatra is over. When neither Ashtami Tithi nor Rohini Nakshatra is over before Sunset or even Hindu Midnight (also known as Nishita Time) one should wait to get them over before breaking the fast.
Depending on end timing of Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra fasting on Krishna Janmashtami might continue for two complete days. Devotees who are not able to follow two days fasting might break the fast on next day after Sunrise. It has been suggested by Hindu religious text Dharmasindhu.
