Krishna - Festive spirits

As Marie Chapian said ‘Stay Happy in an unhappy World’, all you need to do is beat the blues, the blahs, the burnouts and other emotional hurts to achieve Happiness. Faith is a lamp that dispels ignorance….Faith is the hope that keeps you surfing on the waves of a sea of storms…Faith, a trust in tomorrow and dreaming God’s dream of a beautiful world, leads you from darkness to light and than there is Faith – Faith in the super power called ‘God’, a vision of unknown strength that lays down rules that restrict us to do the wrong!

Last three-four days had been too festive. 22nd Aug, been a 'cooking day' whole day long for the Hindus,to leave the food covered and eat for the next day. You can find on search on 'Shitla satam' for the significance. Next day, the fasting day to mark the midnight birthday of Lord Krishna. And today, been the celebrations with lunch consisting of 32 + vegetables and the traditional gujarati delicacies.

Hindus celebrated Lord Krishna Birth festival on 24th August, sunday this year. Krishna "Literally means Black" is the eighth incartion of Vishnu, born to Devaki and brought up by Yashoda. The purpose of his incarnation was to destroy his evil uncle Kansa who had taken the throne of Mathura. Krishna played a crucial role in Mahabharata and fully revealed his divinity to Arjuna, the son of Indra. Here's the Krishna Pages on Kidsfreesouls. Click for the Gita Review too!

Too much and it's sometimes 'Enough' - Isn't this so true? Gujaratis are often known as fun loving people and I really remember my Talkcity Team members happy for me as we enjoy whole year long festive spirits that we have here in India.
