The festival of Janmashtami is celebrated on the Ashtami date of Krishna Paksha according to the Hindu calendar. Mythological belief is that on this day Lord Krishna was born in Rohini Nakshatra at midnight. Therefore, on this day there is a law to worship the child form of Lord Shri Krishna. This time on Janmashtami, the coincidence of Dhruva and Vriddhi Yoga is also happening. Worshiping in this yoga will be fruitful. Know when Janmashtami will be celebrated this year and what is the auspicious time for worship. Also know about the special Bhog offered to Shri Krishna on Janmashtami.

This year there is a difference of opinion among people regarding the date of Janmashtami. The date of Janmashtami is being told on two days, 18 August and 19 August. According to some, on August 19, there will be Ashtami date for the whole day. Janmashtami will be celebrated on 19th August as Udayatithi is valid. At the same time, according to the Panchang, the Ashtami date will start from 09:21 on August 18. Dhruva and Vriddhi Yoga are also being formed on this day.
