Krishna Jayanthi - 25th August 2008

Sri Krishna Jayanti marks the celebration of the birth of Bhagavan Sri Krishna. Lord Sri Krishna was born on the 'Rohini' nakshatram (star) on Ashtami day. The festival Sri Krishna Jayanti is also known as Gokulashtami and Janmashtam. The actual day of celebration can be on two different days as the star 'Rohini' and Ashtami may not be on the same day.

Little Kuruvi inspired me to explore further at this website..Suggestion : may be can add in more Tamil Phrases, to bring out spicy Tamil flavor..I'm just an ordinary Pakhtan..(NB : I'm in no connection with L.K, still a mystery as far I'm concerned)
