10 Trending Janmashtami Dress for Ladies

What is Janmashtami? 

India offers a wide variety of celebrations, with each region having its own unique style of commemorating important events. 

One of the most well-known Hindu deities, Krishna, was born on the day of the Krishna Janmashtami festival. His estimated birth year is 3228 BC.

His birthday is observed eight days after Raksha Bandhan, a celebration honouring sibling relationships. It occurs in Sravana, a Hindu month that usually coincides to August or September. The two days of festivities are filled with vigour and enthusiasm. This festival was also known as Krishna Janmashtami, Sree Jayanti, Gokilashtami, and Srikrishna Jayanti by the people.

The spirited and vibrant celebrations require song, dancing, and drama to be successful. Plays are performed in which episodes from Krishna's early life are acted out. Images of Krishna are bathed and laid in cradles at temples as bells are rung, and the shankh (conch shell) is blown. Additionally, sacred mantras are spoken in his honour.

The majority of Hindus believe in a supreme god, whose attributes and manifestations are symbolised by the myriad deities that flow from him. According to popular belief, Vishnu, the second god in the Hindu trinity known as the Trimurti, is an incarnation of Krishna. Three gods make up the triumvirate, who are in charge of creating, maintaining, and destroying the universe. Brahma, the universe's creator, and Shiva, the destroyer, are the other two deities.

What happens on that day?

At midnight, when Krishna is said to have been born, celebrations begin.

After the puja, the daylong fast of the devotees is only broken with prasad. Breaking a fast is called as paran. People also engage in aarti, kirtan, and bhajan to commemorate Krishna's birth. Children sing songs about Lord Krishna throughout the event, while people dance to Dahi-Handi. In all Krishna temples, Lord Krishna receives bhog prasad in 56 various types. It is widely believed that Lord Krishna eats the bhog prasad that his followers had cooked when he arrives at midnight. 

Some Hindus choose to sing bhajans, or traditional Hindu melodies, instead of falling asleep during the festivities. Since milk and curds are said to have been Krishna's favourites, meals are typically made with them on Janmashtami. On the first day of Krishna Janmashtami, some Hindus opt to fast all day and night before breaking their fast at midnight.

A Krishna idol is placed in a cradle and worshipped on the day of Krishna Janmashtami, which is filled with excitement. As prasad, the Lord receives offerings of butter and sugar.

Another ceremony known as Dahi Handi is held, in which participants create a human pyramid and break an earthen pot that has been hung at a height and contained butter and curd.

What is the role of Women in Janmashtami? 

Men take part in the Dahi Handi celebrations as children dress up as Krishna, Radha, and other deities in preparation for Krishna Janmashtami. Women have a fantastic opportunity to wear their best Janmashtmi attire at the celebration. Thus, many look up questions like "what colour should I wear on Janmashtami" and "Janmashtami clothing ideas for women" online. Therefore, whether you're searching for the answer to the first or second question, we have you covered. Let's begin by deciding which colour you ought to don for the Janmashtmi festivities. 

The finest way to celebrate Krishna Janmashtmi is to dress in a yellow Janmashtmi attire. Another name for Lord Krishna is "Pitambar" (the one who wears yellow color). Additionally, Lord Krishna radiates a divine aura that is bright and yellow in colour, making him as happy and optimistic as the rising sun. As a result, Hindus dress in yellow to celebrate Krishna since it perfectly suits his nature.
