In love with Krishna Udaipur/Mumbai: Udaipur is the city where every festival is celebrated with traditional ways and great fervour. Krishna Janmashtami is one such festival. The association of tales of lord Krishna is long and strong with the city. The famous Jagdish Temple right next to the city palace of Udaipur endorses the fact well. The day remains a holiday, so you see hustle bustle all the day since the morning. For kids it’s a matter of savouring delicacies like Laddoo and others, for others it’s a matter of experiencing the brightness and glitter of having Krishna around.
Another temple which sees Mathura like a gathering of devotees and enthusiasm is the ShriNathDwara temple. Situated merely at the distance of 50 kilometres from the Udaipur city, the temple is the world famous abode of Shrinathji. Not only the devotees from Udaipur visit the temple, but a huge number of people from across the world plan their visit well in advance and reach here well in time.
Generally and more than often, it rains well this day. People take it as the blessings of the lord. Small and big, all the temples celebrate the birth of lord Krishna with due rituals and traditions. People keep visiting the temple and pull the string of the swing on which the lord rests. They offer all kind of sweets including the milk products like butter. Butter is the milk product lord loves the most, and in the love of the lord, people offer their love in the form of butter.This day is also auspicious to fast and offer all the love to the lord. People fast the whole day, and unlike other fasting days, they break the fast only past midnight after the pooja. The Lord’s birth time is midnight and people observe the fast to pay their respect and love.
The home-based temples are cleaned and adorned with lights, flowers, and rangoli. Sweets are prepared at home. A special curd-based recipe called Panchammrit is prepared which contains at least five indispensible ingredients including yogurt, cow milk, honey, ghee, and liquid jaggery. This is the prime offering to the lord’s infant incarnation. Once offered, the remaining panchamrit is consumed by all the members of the family.
In the temple, the panchamrit is prepared at a large scale and then is distributed to each devotee who pays a visit.
The overall atmosphere of the day remains filled with a natural joy that emanates from the bottom of the heart. You do not need to be a regular temple visitor to feel the magic of the day. The day assures us time and again that the lord is listening to us and resides within our hearts.
The almighty is well aware and will be our only saviour in life against any odds.
