Yashoda Jayanti 2022: Rituals

Yashoda Jayanti is celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm and fanfare in Gokul, the village of Lord Krishna. Devotees wake up early in the morning and take bath during Brahma Muhurat and worship Mata Yashoda and Lord Krishna by offering incense sticks, flowers, Tulsi leaves, haldi, chandan, kumkum, coconut with its husk, bananas, paan, supari etc. The young avatar of Lord Krishna along with his mother Yashoda is celebrated on this day.

Devaki and Yashoda - Mothers of Krishna

Lord Krishna was born to Devaki, but it was Yashoda, the wife of Nanda, who raised him. Krishna was showered with the blessings of both his mothers. Krishna's biological father Vasudeva brought the newborn Krishna to Nanda Baba in Gokul, in order to raise and protect Krishna from Devaki's brother Kansa, the king of Mathura. Despite being Devaki's biological son, Krishna is  renowned as Yashoda's child.

Once after seeing Krishna eating mud as a kid, Yashoda scolded him and tied him to a grinding stone. And as she asked him to open his mouth, she fell unconscious after seeing the entire universe inside. She realised that her son is no ordinary child, but God himself.
