CHICAGO: The birth of Lord Krishna – the festival of Janmashtami – was celebrated at the Hindu Mandir of Lake County on September 3 with great zeal and pomp. It was attended by hundreds of devotees.
This year many young couples with their kids attended the program. Children from 3-15 years came dressed in as Krishna and Radha and in other colorful outfits with wonderful smiles on their faces and celebrated the occasion by singing and dancing with great joyand fervor.
The Temple’s shrine was decorated and devotees came from far and wide to participate in this special program and to offer their prayers and bhog to their beloved deity. Children Yatra was performed on the temple’s parking lot. Then broke ‘Dahi Handi’ as it is believed that Lord Krishna loved eating curd, butter and milk.
Bhajans related to Janmashtami were not only sung by the children but also 15 children recited three chapters of Bhagavad Gita without looking at the book, spellbinding the audience. Later, many devotees performed Garbha and Dandiya in the shrine while Rita Patel, Sangeetha Singh, Athul Soni sang melodious Bhajans. They did all this before the birth of Krishna just to show their happiness for his arrival.
