Janmashtami is also called Sreekrishna Jayanthi in some regions. It is one of the important festivals in Hindu religion which is celebrated across the country. 

This year, it would be celebrated on 2nd and 3rd September 2018. Janmashtami celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna. Krishna was the eighth reincarnation of Lord Vishnu who gave the vital message of the Bhagwat Gita the guiding principles for every Hindu. 

Devotees observe day long fast to break it on the next day when Ashtami tithi is over. They also perform the Krishna Abhishekam, which has milk, ghee and water and offer bhog to the deity. Those fasting spend their day eating phalahar, which consists of fruits and water. 

People love to visit temples to seek blessings from Lord Krishna, some keep laddoo gopal or little Krishna's idol in their temples and bathe him with milk, honey, and water and dress him up in new clothes. 

Krishna is considered hero, teacher, and philosopher by followers and seen as the god of compassion, tenderness and love. 

Happy Janmashtami!
