- After birth, they are anointed with milk, curd and pure water, and Makhan Mishri, Panjari and Cucumber are offered.
- After that, the aarti of Krishna ji is performed, some people sing bhajan, kirtan and dance throughout the night in joy.
- Makhan Mishri was very dear to Krishna. In his child avatar, he had broken the pots of many gopis for this butter and had eaten butter by stealing it from many houses. That is why he is also called Makhan Chor. And for this reason, Makhan Mishri is mainly offered to them.
- Matki bursting competition is also done at many places, in which a pot is filled with Makhan Mishri and tied on a high rope and the congregation from different places tries to break it and celebrates the birth of Krishna.
- Some people keep fasting for the whole day on this day and eat food after the birth of Krishna. The method of fasting on this day is very simple. Devotees can fast as per their wish and can do devotion to Shri Krishna.
- Always remember this thing that if you are not able to fast, then it is not necessary to fast. If you worship with faith in your heart, then Makhan Chor Kanha blesses you. Accepts your devotion, and gives you His ultimate blessings.

धरती पर आये कृष्ण कन्हैया
किया जगत का उद्धार
ऐसी अलौकिक रची लीलाये
भक्त करते नमन बारंबार
poem on janmashtami
काली अँधेरी में था वो उजाला
भादो पक्ष की अष्टमी का नजारा
कारावास में किलकारी गूंजी
लीलाधर को नयी लीला सूजी
किया वसुदेव को आजाद
बरसते पानी में करवाया यमुना पार
खुद यमुना ने चरण स्पर्श कर
अपने जीवन का किया उद्धार
माता यशोदा के पुत्र बनकर
बढ़ाया जिसने गौकुल का मान
मटकी फोड़कर माखन चौर बन
यशोदा माँ की खाई फटकार
गोपियों के संग थे रास रचैया
बने राधा के कृष्ण कन्हैया
मुरली की धुन पर चराते गैया
बनकर ग्वाला कृष्ण कन्हैया
तोड़ा घमंड इंद्र का जिसने
उठाकर गोवर्धन ऊँगली पर भैया
हुआ बाल लीलाओं का अंत
जाना पड़ा कर्तव्य पथ संग
पीछे छूटा प्रेम प्रसंग
नन्द बाबा मैया का संग
janmashtami 2021 date
कंस को मार किया मथुरा उद्धार
भाई के संग किया यादव कल्याण
बनकर शिष्य लिया व्यवहारिक ज्ञान
संदीपनी गुरु सानिध्य में मिला सुदामा का साथ
निभाया सदा सखा संबंध
भले बने द्वारिका महाराज
महाभारत का बन सूत्र धार
किया भारत वर्ष का उद्धार
गीता का ज्ञान देकर
मनुष्य जीवन का किया उद्धार
