The celebration of Lord Shri Krishna’s birth in 2019 takes place on Friday the 23rd of August.
As stated in the Bhagavad Gita, the Lord says that His appearance, birth and activities are all transcendental, and one who understands them becomes immediately eligible to be transferred to the spiritual world.
When the time was mature for the appearance of the Lord, the constellations became very auspicious. The astrological influence of the star known as Rohini was also predominant because this star is considered to be very auspicious. Rohini is under the direct supervision of Brahma. The great sages and the demigods, being pleased, began to shower flowers. At the seashore, there was the sound of mild waves, and above the sea there were clouds in the sky which began to thunder very pleasingly.
When things were adjusted like this, Lord Vishnu, who is residing within the heart of every living entity, appeared in the darkness of night as the Supreme Personality of Godhead before Devaki, who also appeared as one of the demigoddesses. The appearance of Lord Vishnu could be compared with the full moon in the sky as it rises on the eastern horizon. Due to the extraordinary features of the child, Vasudeva was struck with wonder. When Vasudeva was convinced that the newborn child was the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself, he bowed down with folded hands and began to offer prayers.
