Hindu devotees have been re­minded about the lessons learned from the Krishna Janmashtmi Festival.

This was relayed by the Assistant Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Veena Bhat­nagar during her visit to the Fiji Brahma Kumaris Rajyog Medita­tion Centre in Suva to mark the oc­casion.

 

“Janmashtami means the birth of a positive mindset, it means believ­ing that something good will happen when there is no hope,” Ms Bhatna­gar said.

“It means not searching for the light at the end of the tunnel, but finding the light within you and shining for­ever.”

She said the holy occasion signified unity and faith.

“The festival of Janmashtami, which is also known as Krishnashta­mi, is a symbol of absolute faith for people following Lord Krishna,” Ms Bhatnagar said.

“It highlights love, unity, together­ness, and good values, loving one another and standing for justice. The spirit of Janmashtami should be in­corporated in our everyday living, to bring joy to societies.”

Krishna Janmashtami is an annu­al Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu.
