Janmashtami Festival Celebrations 2017

This year in Jaipur,we celebrated Janmashtami Festival at Janki Devi Public School Auditorium on 15th of August 2017 in high devotional spirits, pomp and above all in great joy for the holy appearance of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; Lord Krishna.

 
It is said Harinam Sankirtan is the most auspicious of all sacrificial performances and drives away all evil from the atmosphere and also removes all impurities inside our heart .It also makes us feel happy by bringing us out from all material implications till we are chanting Lord's holy name.

Devotees performing Harinam-Sankirtan during this auspicious occasion
 
Srila Prabhupada says that there is no difference between Lord Krishna and his pastimes. 
Such pastimes are always relish-able because such pastimes immediately makes you remember the Lord.  The devotees are enacting such a drama names as "The Touchstone."
