Kolkata, Aug 19 (UNI) Janmashtami, birthday of Lord Krishna, was on Friday celebrated with
religious fervour and gaiety across West Bengal.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wished the people on the occasion.
Taking to twitter, Banerjee said, “Best wishes on the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami.”
“May Lord Krishna bless everyone with wisdom, joy and peace. Jai Shri Krishna,” she added.
The ISKCON temples at the global headquarters at Mayapur in Nadia district were brightly
illuminated and pujas were being held since morning.
Daylong puja was also conducted at the Albert Road compound of ISKCON Kolkata.
The Birla temple in the city as well as other Radha Krishna temples here and in the districts
were decorated.
According to Hindu scriptures, Krishna, the son of Devaki and Vasudeva, was born in Mathura at midnight on the eighth day of Bhadrapada month, but there was a threat to his life by his maternal uncle King Kansa.
Following his birth, Vasudeva — who was imprisoned in a dungeon — carried the infant in a basket across the Yamuna river all the way to Gokul, where he was raised by foster parents Nanda and Yashoda.
