Janmashtami 2023: Vaishnavs and Grihasth celebrate Janmashtami on different days, know the difference from astrologer..
Lord Krishna is worshiped as the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. When Lord Krishna descended on the earth, people from Mathura to Vrindavan and Gokul started celebrating. Lord Krishna was born in Mathura in Rohini Nakshatra on the eighth day of the month of Bhadrapada. This time Janmashtami will be celebrated on 6 and 7 September.
Deoghar's famous astrologer Pandit Nand Kishore Mudgal told Local 18 that in Dwapar Yuga, Lord Krishna was born on Rohini Nakshatra, day Wednesday and Ashtami Tithi of Bhadrapada. This year the same coincidence is happening. On the other hand, the people of Vaishnav and Smarta sect celebrate the festival of Janmashtami on different days. This year Janmashtami festival will be celebrated on the 6th and 7th.
He said that the people of Sadhu Sanyasi Smart sect will celebrate the birth anniversary of Lord Shri Krishna by keeping a fast on 6th September and keeping vigil throughout the night. On the next day, the Vaishnav sect and Brijwasi will celebrate Janmashtami on 7th September.
Vaishnava Sampradaya and Smarta Sampradaya
According to Jyotishacharya, those devotees who follow the rule of Kanthi Mala, Tilak after taking Guru Diksha from the Acharya of a particular sect, are called people of the Vaishnav sect. The one who worships all the gods while living a household life, such people are called the people of the Smarta sect. The people of the Vaishnava sect worship only Vishnu, while the people of the Smarta sect worship all the gods. The people of the Smart sect do not give importance to Udaya Tithi, whereas the people of the Vaishnav sect believe in Udayakal only, so the people of the Smart sect will celebrate Janmashtami on 6th September and the people of Vaishnav sect will celebrate it on 7th September.
