Janamashtami is the celebration of the birth of Lord Krishna, kept with fasting until midnight, when his image is welcomed into home or temple. Janma means 'birth' and ashtami means 'eighth day'. Janamashtami, celebrated in August / September, commemorates the birth of Lord Krishna, born to annihilate Kansa, the evil king of Mathura. Krishna means the most attractive. He is the divinity, the energy, that pulls everything to it. Krishna is the formless centre that is everywhere.
