Festivals are integral part of any culture. Celebrated throughout the year, the galaxy of Indian Festivals makes the Indian Heritage the richest. Vibrant colours, brightly lit places, traditional cuisines , sweets,dance ,music, dresses and ornaments, fasting , feasting, exchanging gifts and good will, prayers and processions, rituals and holidays. To welcome a new season or a new year, the harvest or the rain; on religious occasions or birthdays of God, saints and gurus or to worship the Sun and the Moon...

Regions or reasons may vary and so do the names. But, the festive spirit, concept of universal brotherhood, warm hospitality and enthusiasm appeals people across the globe to be a part of it.

Lord Krishna inspired mankind to live in harmony and love. In Bhagavad – Gita, Krishna said, “Whenever there will be predominance of evil and decline of religion, I will reincarnate to kill the evil and to save the good”. Lord Vishnu reincarnated as Krishna, the eight Nand’s child of Devaki and Vasudev to kill his evil uncle Kans. Vasudev carried new born Krishna to ‘Gokul’ where under King nand’s protection; Krishna got the loving affection of mother Yashoda.

Lord Krishna’s birth is celebrated as ‘Janmashtami’, ‘Krishnashtami’ or ‘Gokulashtami’, occurring on the eighth day (Ashtami) of Hindu month Shravana in July or August.

At midnight the ‘Birth of Lord Krishna’ is replicated along with the recitation of Krishna’s tales and devotional songs. A decorated cradle is rocked with infant Krishna’s idol in it. Janmashtami is celebrated with great honor and joy, with processions, parades or ‘Jhankis’, singing and dancing in elation in the name of the Lord.

The second day is celebrated as ‘Dahi Handi’. An earthen pot full of curd, dry fruits and milk hung at a height with a rope, is broken to mimic the stealing of butter by Krishna. Human pyramids comprising of men or women are formed to break such ‘Matkis’, ‘Govinda Pathaks’ compete to claim the prizes by breaking tallest of the ‘Handis’ or just by giving ‘Salamis’. Turning into mega events with open DJs and live performances by film personalities and celebrities had added a touch of glamour quotient to the festival.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
