KRISHNASHTAMI OR ” SRI JAYANTHI ” AS SRI VAISHNAVITES CALL IT, SHOULD BE CELEBRATED, IN A DAY WHEN DURING THE SUN’S STAYS IN SIMHA RASI, AND WHEN ROHINI STAR OR ASHTAMI THITTHI, STAY WITHOUT ANY POLLUTION.

POLLUTION MEANS, BY THE TIME OF SUN RAISE, THAT PARTICULAR STAR OR THITTHI, ENJOINING WITH THE PREVIOUS ONE. THEY CALL IT AS “VIDDHA”.

TO CELEBRATE THE FUNCTION, OUT OF BOTH THITHHI AND STAR, WHICHEVER WILL REMAIN LONG WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERED TO BE THE ONE FOR FUNCION. IF THAT REMAINS TO THE MORNING THAT IS ENOUGH, THAT NEED BE THERE DURING MID NIGHT. BUT THAT DAY CAN BE TAKEN “PURE” FOR PERFORMING THE FUNCTION. IT IS BECAUSE THE
KRISHNA’S JANM SLOKA SAYS

“SIMHA RA:SOW ASITHE: PAKSHE: RO:HINYA:M ASHTAMI: THITTHOW |
CHARAMA:RTTHA PRADA:THA:RAM KRUSHNAM VANDE: JAGAD GURUM ||”

(Swamiji is refereing to the year 2006)

NOW ON 15TH OR 16TH OF AUGUST, SIMHA RASI ENTRANCE TO SUN HAS NOT HAPPENED AT ALL. HE IS STILL IN KARKATAKA RASI. HE IS ENTERING INTO SIMHA RA:SI ON 17TH IN THE EVENING AT 6.48 pm. SO PERFORMING HIS FUNCTION IN AUGUST, IS NOT PROPER.

DURING September, ON 15TH SUN IS IN SIMHA RASI, THOUGH PURE ROHINI WAS ON PREVIOUS DAY, BUT ASHTAMI GOT POLLUTED ON 14TH, HENCE THAT DAY IS NOT GOOD, WHICHEVER WILL REMAIN TILL END CAN BE TAKEN, SO, ASHTAMI STAYS ON 15H ALSO AND THAT TOO WITHOUT ANY POLLUTION, SO “15TH SEPTEMBER” WILL BE OUR “SRI JAYANTHI’
DAY.

WE ARE SURE WE DID NOT CONFUSE YOU MUCH.
