Gokulashtami | Krishna Janmashtami Festival and Recipes

Gokulashtami/Krishna Jayanthi/Krishna Janmashtami is a festival celebrated in India. Its a day on which Lord Krishna was born. Meaning of Krishna is Happniness. People go to temples Krishnan temples. Many people fast on this day. Tradition is by putting kolam and footprints to welcome Lord Krishna.

When we were in Panama we had been to ISKCON temple and celebrated this day. It was very joyful by singing and dancing.
We celebrated the festival yesterday at my home. Traditional prasadams Milk, curds and butter, Thenguzal, Murukku, Kara Seedai, Vella Seedai, Uppu Aval, Vella Aval and Thayir Aval were prepared and offered to God. On this day onion and garlic is generally not used in cooking.
