The Krishna Janmashtami Festival is the birthday celebration of Lord Krishna and is an auspicious occasion observed by Hindus across the globe. A day filled with enthusiasm, delicious foods and soulful music. People dress up in colourful and bright traditional outfits and wear different devotional jewellery pieces to celebrate with their families and friends. 


Krishna, known to be everyone’s favourite, won their hearts through mischievousness and tenderness. He is said to be Lord Vishnu’s reincarnation, coming to protect the people from evil doings. When you think of Krishna, the first thing that comes to mind is his flute. His love for music attracted all to him as he played it to produce melodious tunes. To date, devotees stay up all night on the day of Janmashtami, singing bhajans and praises. 


A gentle lover and a prankster, he was born to Queen Devaki and King Vasudeva in the Yadava clan of Mathura. He was born amongst the chaos but the sparkle in the child’s eyes gave everyone hope, not knowing he would bring them peace and protect them from their fears and worries to come shortly. 


It is said that if you are suffering from any ailment, pray to Krishna, chanting mantras 108 times, and imagine him in your heart and mind, and thus, peace will find comfort in your soul. You can use a 108 mala beads necklace to recite your prayers to help you focus on your chants. Using malas or other devotional pieces can help strengthen your faith and give you the strength to overcome everyday challenges. Whether it is healing you’re praying for or seeking the courage to navigate an obstacle, chanting a mantra with the help of a mala can lend you the focus you require to face the situation head-on! 


We hope this Janmashtami, you find the comfort you've been yearning for and that Lord Krishna takes away your worries and fills you with happiness and love. May your day be filled with celebrations and traditions like the human pyramid where the Dahi handi is broken.
