Good morning everyone present here, today I am going to give a speech on Janmashtami. Sri Krishna is one of the Hindu god Vishnu’s most important incarnations. He and his other incarnations make up a substantial portion of Hindu mythology. The day of Lord Krishna’s birth, known as Janmashtami, is observed every year with great delight on Krishna Paksha in the month of Shravana on the Ashtami Tithi.
The elderly participate actively in the puja’s planning and fast all day. They prepare prasad as well for the puja, and when the puja is over at midnight, they break their fast with the prasad and sweets that have been served to them.
On the day of Janmashtami, a very well-known sport called “Matkiphor” is mostly performed in Maharashtra. Participants form a human pyramid to smash an earthen pot or matki that has been filled with curd. Despite being an intriguing sport, there are a lot of deaths because of inadequate safety measures. People of all ages eagerly participate in the celebration on the auspicious day of the sacred Janmashtami tithi. The kids dress up as Lord Krishna and can’t wait to participate in the performances on Lord Krishna’s life that the neighborhood is putting on.
Both small- and large-scale celebrations of Janmashtami take place. Both events are observed in homes. Beautifully decorated homes and several ceremonies are common. On Janmashtami, missionary organizations like ISKCON also host events throughout the globe when tens of thousands of people come together to chant, worship, and celebrate all day.
Celebrations like Janmashtami are important for uniting people and disseminating the values of peace, love, and harmony. Thank you.
