Janmashtami to come - 13th/14th August 2009

Inside the ISKCON Krsna Balarama Mandir in Vrindavan women are preparing offerings for the celebration of Janmashtami on August 14th, the birth of Lord Krishna equivalent to Christmas for the Christians.
In most temples, the Janmashtami celebrations start before dawn and go past midnight, the exact moment of the anniversary of Krishna’s birth – the moment everyone has been waiting for. Devotees sing prayers as a feast of 108 dishes is offered to Krishna for His birthday. Then all the devotees share the birthday feast.
