Janmashtami Celebration

  • Hindus around the world celebrate Janmashtami, the birth of the Hindu God Krishna. The all-powerful, all-knowning and all-beautiful Krishna is the lord of the highest regard among Hindus and is worshiped with the most enthusiasm.

  • Everyone dresses up, some even paint themselves blue, so to depict themselves as Krishna. Other dress up as his consort Radha with bright elaborate costumes and jewelry.

  • The celebration then starts with the breaking of the “dahi-handi” or curd pot. A large clay pot that is filled with milk, curds, butter, honey and fruits is suspended 20-40 feet up in the air. People build human pyramids so to break into the pot and claim the rich and tasty prizes found inside.
