Shree Krishnaashtami

Today is one of the most auspicious days in the Hindu calender. This is the day (in fact sometime at moonrise) when Shree Hari (Shree Mahaa Vishnu) took Avataar as Shree Krishna during Dwaapara Yuga. Please note in the links above that Yugaas are mentioned in cosmic as well as human time scales and that these two are distinctly different.  I'll write about the spiritual significance of this day known as Shree Krishnaashtami (or Shree Krishna Janmaashtami), later when I find time. Thanks for visiting my blog and reading my posts.
