नत्वेवाहं जातु नासं न त्वं नेमे जनाधिपाः |
न चैव न भविष्यामः सर्वे वयमतः परम् || २ १२ ||
na tvevaaham jaatu naasam
na tvam neme janaadhi-paaha
na chaiva na bhavishyaa-maha

“There was never a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings. We will also never cease to exist.” (SBG 2:12)
KRISHNA, WHO SYMBOLISES THE WHOLE, IS TIMELESS. HE CANNOT BE BORN AND CAN NOT DIE.
This day needs to mark the birth of Krishna in you – or rather, the finest version of you that meets all the qualities of Krishna.
For this, one would need to study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and persevere to emulate Krishna in real life. Krishna is the possibility that ordinary Jivatmas can become if they shed their ego, ignorance, and superstition, and acquire true knowledge taught by Krishna in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
Be smart; be socially responsible in all your thoughts, words, and deeds; carry no ego and selfishness; perform all your actions with total dedication, zero attachment, and as an offering unto Krishna.
Taking a resolution to live like Krishna, would be the true way of observing and celebrating ‘KRISHNA’S BIRTH’.

Vedic literature deals with subjects that fall under the three Gunas. O Arjuna, you should rise above the three, be free from the thoughts of acquisition and preservation, always remain in Sattva or goodness and be established in the Self. (SBG 2:45)
Just as a talented sculptor ‘uncovers’ a beautiful statue in a rock by shedding material around it, you too can be born as Krishna by shedding duality, dogma, superstition, fear, hate, envy, and all other negative qualities to uncover the Krishna in you.

ahamaadish-cha madhyam cha

I am the Self, O Gudakesha (Arjuna), situated within all living entities. I am the origin, the middle and also the end of all beings. (SBG 10:20)
Have a Blessed Krishna Jayanti and a new life as a new person.
Jai Shri Krishna
