Date of Krishna Janmashtami in 2023: On September 6 and 7, two days will be dedicated to commemorating the birth of Lord Krishna, popularly known as Janmashtami. Janmashtami occurs on the eighth day of the dark fortnight of the Bhadrapada month, according to the Hindu calendar. Lord Krishna was born according to the scriptures during the Rohini Nakshatra. This year’s Janmashtami holiday commemorates the 5250th birthday of Lord Krishna, according to religious texts. In various regions of the nation, Janmashtami is observed with great zeal and fervour. Major Krishna temples in locations like Mathura, Vrindavan, and Dwarka are where it is especially honoured. On this day, temples are gorgeously ornamented. While big Krishna temples across the nation will celebrate Janmashtami on September 7th, Thursday, households will celebrate on September 6th this year.
When is Janmashtami Celebrated? Because the date and constellation alignment between September 6th and September 7th at midnight mimics the period of Lord Krishna’s birth during the Dvapara Yuga, some astrologers recommend commemorating Krishna Janmashtami on September 6th. The Bhadrapada Krishna Ashtami starts at 3:37 PM on September 6 and finishes at 4:14 PM on September 7 according to the Panchang calculations. The Rohini Nakshatra, on the other hand, begins at 9:20 PM on September 6 and lasts till 10:25 AM on September 7. Since Lord Krishna is believed to have been born on the night of Ashtami, it is best to observe Janmashtami on September 6. The majority of temples will celebrate Janmashtami on September 7th because, according to some astrologers, that day will see a more notable conjunction of Ashtami and Rohini Nakshatra. Additionally, this year, Ashtami Tithi, Wednesday, and Rohini Nakshatra are thought to be extremely fortunate together.
Why Do People Celebrate Janmashtami for Two Days? The custom is typically to observe Krishna Janmashtami for two days. The Vaishnava tradition observes Krishna Janmashtami on the second day when such a coincidence happens, while the Smarta tradition celebrates it on the first day. The dates in the Hindu Panchang and the English calendar vary, which causes this to occur. Dates in the Hindu calendar frequently begin in the late afternoon or evening and go into the following day. Due to the fact that various rituals and prayers are carried out depending on this time, the Udaya Tithi (sunrise hour) has great significance in fasting and celebrations.
