I acknowledge the Terms & Conditions

JKYog Janmashtami Mahotsav
Global Cultural and Religious Festival

Aug 5th - 21st, 2022

वसुदेवसुतं देवं कंसचाणूरमर्दनम् । देवकी परमानन्दं कृष्णं वंदे जगद्गुरुम् ।

I bow to Lord Krishna, the son of Vasudeva, the source of mother Devaki's immense happiness, the brave one who killed the wicked Kamsa and Chanoora, and the supreme teacher of the whole universe.

Lord Krishna, the protector of the good and crusader of evil, is the heavenly father of the universe, who guides and shelters His devotees. An avatar (incarnation) of Lord Vishnu, Lord Krishna’s stories, popularly known as Leelas, delight the listeners and awakens feelings of divine love, Bhakti (devotion), and the mindset to surrender with joy to Him.

Join the magnificent Janmashtami celebrations at the Radha Krishna Temple of Dallas (Allen).

Do not miss the blissful midnight celebration of Lord Krishna’s birth on Aug 19th!
