Lord Krishna, the pious Hindu deity is probably one among the most worshiped, written about, and talked about lords. He has always preached that your life must be dedicated towards the welfare of mankind. One must always be ready to help others. We must always live in harmony, spread love, stand by each other in sorrows and in happiness and must never think twice in helping others. The entire life of lord Krishna is an inspiration of people today. People usually, on the Ashtami of Krishna Paksh or the 8th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadon, celebrate Janmashtami as they believe, the 8th avatar of lord Vishnu, Krishna, was born on this day.
