Srikrishna Janmashtami from Jia Sarai

Civilization on the zenith of its development .Mankind is advancing forward with each passing day but is very much attached to its culture and roots- which gets reflected in festivals celebrated by from time to time.

I am right now enjoying and witnessing one such blissful evening at Jia Sarai village, in the very heart of metropolitan city New Delhi.

Everyone over here is waiting eagerly for the mid night - a time which will witness the divine appearance of the Lord Sri Krishna - their beloved God -famously known as Makhanchor (the butter thief).

Just a few hours to go for mid night and the environment coming into rhythm with dancing, singing and enjoying with colorful ethnic dresses. There were lots of programme being presented by children and enjoyed by all age group alike.

At the mid night when clock sriked 12:00 people welcomed the birth of Lord Sri Krishna with traditional ‘Aarti’ and then prasadam was distributed. Everybody uttering slogans like “Hathi Ghoda Palaki- Jai Kanhaiya lal ki” and “aala re aala – govinda aala”.
Let us be the part of this celebration watch video direct from Jia Sarai, New Delhi.

great coverage! Krishna and the stories associated with him appear across a broad spectrum of Hindu philosophical and theological traditions. Though they sometimes differ in details reflecting the concerns of a particular tradition, some core features are shared by all. These include a divine incarnation, a pastoral childhood and youth, and life as a heroic warrior and teacher. but infact after see this coverage ,I miss India very much! Rajesh Ahuja Germany

I would like to share what Lord shri Krishna said about intake of food in Bhagavad Geeta Chapter 6 verse 16 "There is no possibility of one's becoming a yogi, O Arjuna, if one eats too much or eats too little, sleeps too much or does not sleep enough." Krishna says "Dhyana Yoga is not possible for those who eat more." Any yoga is a path that leads us to God. To practice yoga `samam kaya sirogreevam' - the body, the head and the neck cannot be kept in a straight line, if we eat excess of food. We feel lethargy or sleepy. To attain the realization of soul we have to cross in meditation the boundaries of the physical body, the sense organs and the mind but we are stuck at thethreshold itself! The same rule applies when we don't eat at all! `A sound mind in a sound body'. A sound body is maintained by the proper amount of food we eat. Limited food is defined thus - "Half of our stomach should be filled with food, one fourth with water and another one fourth should be free for a free movement of air." Thanks! Jai shri krishna!

thanks food philosopher, Teachings of the lord Krishna, are relevant even in the present age. Lord Krishna emphasised on being free from all kinds of negative and positive emotions like, joy, sorrow, grief, happiness, jealousy, as they are all illusions or maya. These emotions are ephemeral. All the beings are bonded due to lack of knowledge but they get free and achieve liberation once they realize that the world is nothing but illusion. All the souls taking birth on the Earth must surrender to Lord, be free form attachments to living and non living objects. One should not be conditioned by body or the worldly things around.

Ganesh, Thanking you deeply for sharing this wonderful celebration with all of us here at iFood.TV. It made me miss India so much! Watching the children dance and sing was wonderful and heart warming. I especially enjoyed the little serious chap dancing with index fingers pointing towards the heavens. Hathi Ghoda Palaki- Jai Kanhaiya lal ki!!! Shanti
slovina's picture
what is this Hathi ,Ghoda and Palaki............who is this Kanhaiya?
Ganesh.Dutta's picture
Hey slovina, good question............................. Hathi means Elephant, Ghoda means Horse, Kanhaiya is one of the most popular name of the Lord SriKrishna.Sri Krishna is considered to be one of the most endeared human incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Born more than 5000 years ago in Mathura city, the revered God of Hindu religion and his teachings hold immense relevance till date.
