Significance of Janmāṣṭamī
The Supreme Personality of Godhead
Another name of Kṛṣṇa is Aja or ‘Unborn’. The Vedānta Sūtra defines Him as janmādy asya yataḥ, the eternal source of birth for everyone and everything. Yet, out of immense compassion for the fallen souls in the material world, He descends into the material world in every yuga only to invite the conditioned souls back to His kingdom, which is our real home.
Kṛṣṇa descended into this world about 5,250 years ago. Through His ever-victorious pastimes and enlightening words like in Bhagavad-gītā, He firmly established religious principles characterized by devotional service unto His lotus feet.
Therefore, Janmāṣṭamī signifies the unbounded mercy of the Supreme Lord by which He descends and establishes His mission of reclaiming the fallen souls.
By honoring His transcendental birth, we become free from repeated birth in the material world and attain the kingdom of God, as confirmed by Kṛṣṇa Himself in the Bhagavad-gītā.
