The famous Govind Devji temple in Jaipur has been decked up and security around the temple complex has been tightened to celebrate the joyous festival of Janmashtami on August 25 this year. Thousands of devotes are going to the temple for the first offering of worship and celebrate the birth anniversary of the deity.
Krishna Janmashtmi festival is going to be celebrated on August 25 this year with religious fervour and festivities. Keeping apart the festivities and ritual, the essence of Lord Krishna's four-fold yoga path is needed to be propagated to get to the spiritual essence of the festival.
Though Krishna Janmashtami will be celebrated on August 25, but most of the schools rehearsed yesterday for the celebrations to be held in their premises since it will be a holiday on the actual day. Some schools put up the tabloid of Krishna's childhood activities and a small cradle with the image of the deity in it.
