Janamashtami 2020 - How To Celebrate
Nation Now TV August 08, 2020
So it is that time of the year, the festival of Janmashtmi is back. People’s favourite Lord Krishna’s incarnation day is on 12th August 2020. There will be lots and lots of planning which you can do at home and enjoy the festival of Janmashtmi with great enthusiasm.
Krishna Janmashtami, is an annual Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu. It is observed according to the Hindu luni-solar calendar, on the eighth day (Ashtami) of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in Shraavana or Bhadrapad.
Here is the list of things which can be done-
DIYs decoration- A nice set up or a jhanki can be done at home by choosing a nice theme or colour based decoration ideas. The set up can be done by using colourful draperies, some DIYs flute, or paper decorations, paper ribbons, balloons etc. with a touch of lighting. Lighting always adds glamour to the set up. So don’t forget to complete your look of the set up by adding colourful or one coloured light based on the colours you have chosen for the setup.
You can even use some colourful dupattas, sarees and curtains, put them up in a designer form and the background is ready. You can adorn the background with fresh flowers and finish up the look with the lights. We are putting more force on light because it’s a festival of night. So without lights the set up can look unfinished or dull.
Prasadam- Now comes the prasadam part, the list goes on and on in this field. But we are listing few basic ones which can be managed easily-
Panchamrut- Panchamrut is a sweet milky concoction, and we distribute it as prasad. It is one of the easiest janmashtmi recipe in which as the name suggest five ingredients have been put i.e curd, milk, honey, Ganga jal, and ghee
Atta Panjiri- Atta Panjiri is traditional Indian whole wheat flour based sweet. It is considered a fasting food and a must make prasad for festivals like janmashtami.
Coriander Panjiri- The celebrations of Janmashtami are incomplete without making dhaniya panjiri. It is among the most delicious and is distributed among devotees after the bhajans (devotional songs) and puja (offering prayers).
Makhan Misri- We cannot celebrate the festival of janmashtmi witout making makhan misri for the Makhan chor nand kishor. So a special bhog of white butter (safed Makhan) with misri ( solid sugar) comprise Makhan misri and is the most favorite to lord krishna is offered to the deity.
Peda- The famous ‘Mathura ka peda’ is divine in all senses. In taste, flavour and also the fact it comes from Mathura, Krishna’s birthplace. Also, we offer this sweet delight to Krishna with devotion and to break one’s fast. Peda is made from Mawa which comes from thickening of milk over heat.
Tulsi leaves are beloved to Lord Krishna and adding up tulsi leaves in every prasadam you prepare will complete it. You can even add diferent fruits to the prasadam. Apart from these you can prepare puris, halwa to offer to deity.
Dress Up- Last but not the least, comes the dressing up part. You just need to choose some good traditional clothes or some indo western fusion from your wardrobes and get yourself get going with the celebrations with lots of happiness and enjoyment. The colourful attires will add blinge to the fesitivites as well as cheer up your tiring mood after all the preparations which you have done for the special celebration of Janmashtmi.
