I have one doubt on Birthday celebrations of Lord Rama and Krishna. Conventionally we celebrate Birthdays based on Birth stars only and Sraarthams etc based on thithi. If that is so, why do we celebrate Rama’s and Krishna’s birth on thithis (navami and ashtami)? I have asked this question in so many forums till now and not got any reply. I request Swamiji to clarify and enlighten me.

WE WON’T PERFORM ONLY THITTHIS TO LORD SRIRAMA & KRISHNA. SOME PEOPLE DO SO, THOSE WHO DON’T OBSERVE RIGHT SA:STHRA. OBSERVING THEIR BIRTH STARS, IS ONLY THE CUSTOMERY BY TRADITIONAL SRI VAISHNAVITES. SRIRAMA
NAVAMI BECAME FAMOUS, BECAUSE OF LORD SRIRAMA CHENDRA AT BHADRACHELAM IN ANDHRA PRADESH. THE CONSECRATION OF THAT TEMPLE TOOK PLACE ON THAT DAY AND STARTED CELEBRATING KALYANAM ON NAVAMI, ACCORDING TO A:GAMAS.

PEOPLE STARTED NAVAMI-CELEBRATIONS.

FOR KRISHNA’S BIRTHDAY, EVEN TODAY, WE OBSERVE RO:HINI ONLY. IT IS ONLY NON-VAISHNAVITES, WHO DO NOT FOLLOW RIGHT SA:STHRA, OBSERVE SRA:VANA BAHULA ASHTAMI ONLY. WE SEE THAT RO:HINI STAR SHOULD BE PURE AND
ASHTAMI THITTHI SHOULD BE PURE AND THEN ONLY OBSERVE THAT CELEBRATION.

LEAVE ALL THIS, THEY BORN ON SOME THITTHIS AND YOU SHOULD PERFORM THEM AS THEIR BIRTHDAYS. WHY YOU NEED TO HAVE ANY OBJECTION AT ALL, WHETHER OR NOT TO PERFORM THAT ON THAT DAY?
