Things to learn during Krishna Jayanthi :

There are many lessons to be gained from Sri Krishna because we know that he served as Arjun's preacher in the Mahabharata. Some of these lessons include:

Pure Love

Sri Krishna represents unadulterated love. Everyone is familiar with the tale of Krishna and Radha. Krishna exhibited the virtue of selfless love by loving Radha with all of his heart and soul.

Everything happens for good

Krishna advocated the idea that everything that has happened and will happen will do so for the best.

We Should perform our duty without any desire for fruit

Krishna also exhorts us to carry out our duties with fidelity and integrity and to never worry about the outcome.

Change in the law of the universe

The statement "Bdlaw is Vishwa ka niyam hai" was made by Krishna. He sought to convey the idea that nothing is permanent, that time is constantly changing, and that you should become accustomed to changing circumstances.

You came blank handed and you go blank handed

Additionally, Krishna remarked that "tum khali hath hi aaye the aur khali hath hi jaogey". He sought to convey the idea that everyone is born without anything, and they likewise leave this world empty-handed. As a result, individuals should never be greedy.

For all Hindus, Krishna Janmashtami is a very significant holiday, and on that day, they also observe a fast. The following day after midnight, the followers break their fast. Additionally, they perform aarti and sing songs in praise of Lord Krishna, Lord Vishnu, and Krishna. Devotees also sing a few of the Lord's shlokas.
