Krishna Janmasthami being celebrated; Prez visits Krishna Mandir
Krishna Janmasthami, a festival marking the birth of Hindu god Krishna, is being celebrated all over the country on Thursday.
President Dr Ram Baran Yadav visited Krishna Mandir (temple) in Lalitpur this morning and offered prayers at the temple. He also received tika and blessings from the temple's main priest.
On this day, people throng to the temples of Lord Krishna, a playful god who, according to Hindu mythology, killed his uncle Kanksa to relieve his people from age-old tyranny, acted as a mentor for the Pandavas in their victory in the famous battle of Mahabharata and stood as a beacon of the triumph of the good over evil.
Lord Krishna's love and devotion towards his beloved Radha is also equally celebrated by followers of Hinduism. nepalnews.com
