Everybody loves to celebrate a festival, dont they? Especially in India, with its diverse and rich culture, festivals are myriad. But with Indians increasingly losing touch with their own culture, festivals have become at most social obligations which have to be fulfilled, and more often than not, a break form work and business to be spent in relaxation and merry-making. But traditionally in Vedic culture, festivals had a much deeper significance. They were usually related either to the Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krishna or some of the demigods. More significantly they reminded the people of the Goal of Human Life, which was to get out of the material world and go back home to Godhead. Of all the festivals, Krishna Janmashtami is the most popular in India. People, irrespective of caste and creed celebrate Janmashtami.
