If the ashtami tithi AND the Rohini nakshatra occur on the same day, then the observance is considered to be doubly sacred; otherwise the observance is held on the day on which the ashtami prevails at midnight. The vrata mainly consists of fasting, spending the whole night in the worship of Krishna, reciting hymns of praise and Krishna's pastimes, reciting prayers from the Bhagavata, offering arghya to Krishna, and the parana or the ceremonial breaking of the fast. The next day is celebrated as Krishna Jayanti. On the contrary, one is able to discern from his writings that he had a soft-corner for Bhakti.

If the ashtami tithi AND the Rohini nakshatra occur on the same day, then the observance is considered to be doubly sacred; otherwise the observance is held on the day on which the ashtami prevails at midnight. The vrata mainly consists of fasting, spending the whole night in the worship of Krishna, reciting hymns of praise and Krishna's pastimes, reciting prayers from the Bhagavata, offering arghya to Krishna, and the parana or the ceremonial breaking of the fast.
The next day is celebrated as Krishna Jayanti. On the contrary, one is able to discern from his writings that he had a soft-corner for Bhakti. One such hymn is the shri Krishna Ashtaka or eight verses in praise of shri Krishna.
This stotra, like many of shankara's stotras, has a musical effect and may be easily set to music. It is, therefore, recommended that the stotra be sung, not just recited. For Lord Vishnu has promised to be present wherever His devotees sing His glories. I bow to Krishna Who rid Kama deva of his pride, Who has beautiful, large eyes, Who takes away the sorrows of the Gopas cowherds , the lotus-eyed One. I bow to Krishna Who lifted the Govardhana hill with His hand, Whose smile and glance are extremely attractive, Who destroyed the pride of Indra, and Who is like the King of elephants.
I bow to that Krishna Who wears earrings made of Kadamba flowers, Who has beautiful cheeks, Who is the only darling of the Gopikas of Vraja, and Who is very difficult to attain by any means other than Bhakti.
I bow to the son of Nanda, Who has placed His lotus feet in my mind and Who has beautiful curls of hair. I bow to Krishna Who relieves the burden of the earth by vanquishing innumerable demons and other evil forces , Who helps us cross the ocean of miseries, Who is the son of Yasoda, and Who steals the hearts of everyone. I bow to Nanda's son Who has extremely attractive eyes, Who is always accompanied by saintly devotees, and Whose pastimes and form appear newer and newer, day by day.
Krishna is the repository of all good qualities, all happiness, and grace. He destroys the enemies of the gods and delights the Gopas. I bow to the mischievous cowherd Krishna, Who is attached to His exploits, which appear new every day , Who has the handsome complexion of a dark cloud, and Who wears a yellow garment pitambara that shines likes lightning.
Krishna delights all the Gopas and plays with them in the center of the grove kunja. He is appears as resplendent and pleasing as the sun and causes the lotus that is the heart of the devotee to blossom with joy.
I bow to that Lord of the grove of creepers Who completely fulfills the desires of the devotees , Whose beautiful glances are like arrows, and Who plays melodious tunes on the flute.
Krishna lies down on the bed that is the minds of the intelligent Gopis who always think of Him. I adore Him Who drank the spreading forest-fire in order to protect the cowherd community. I bow to Krishna Who has eyes which are made attractive by His boyhood charm and a black unguent anjan , Who liberated the elephant Gajendra from the jaws of the crocodile , and Who is the consort of Lakshmi shri. O Lord Krishna! Please bless me so that I may sing your glories and pastimes, regardless of the position I am in.
Anyone who studies or recites these two authoritative ashtakas will be blessed with devotion to Krishna in every rebirth. Click here to post a comment. Related Posts.
