The astrologer further told that there is a lot of difference of opinion regarding the date of Janmashtami this year. Some are claiming to be Janmashtami on August 18 and some on August 19. Some scholars are of the opinion that Lord Krishna was born on Ashtami Tithi at 12 o’clock in the night, so this yoga is being formed on 18th August. While some believe that on August 19, there will be Ashtami Tithi for the whole day and sunrise will also take place on this date. Therefore Janmashtami will be celebrated on 19th August. But from the religious point of view, Shri Krishna was born on Ashtami Tithi at 12 o’clock in the night. Therefore, this festival will be celebrated only on 18 August.
Astrologer told that according to Hindu scriptures, Lord Krishna was born on the eighth day of Krishna Paksha of Bhadrapada month at midnight in conjunction with Rohini Nakshatra. Rohini Nakshatra is definitely taken care of when Janmashtami is considered. But this time the coincidence of Rohini Nakshatra is not being made on both the days of 18th and 19th August. According to the Hindu calendar, on August 19, Krittika Nakshatra will remain till 01.53 late at night. After this Rohini Nakshatra will start. Therefore, this time there will be no coincidence of Rohini Nakshatra on Janmashtami.
He further told that light food should be taken in the night before Shri Krishna Janmashtami fast. Especially on Janmashtami, salute Surya, Soma, Yama, Kaal, Sandhi, Bhoot, Pawan, Dikpati, Bhumi, Akash, Khechar, Amar, Brahmadi and sit facing east or north. After this, worship Lord Krishna by law.
