Sri Krishna-Janma-Tithi Vidhi by Srila RUpa Gosvami
THIS IS A simplified version of Srila RUpa Gosvami’s description of how to perform
abhisheka to the Lord on Krishna-Janmasthami. The main simplification is the exclusion of the
extensive Vedic mantras which accompany the offering of most of the items. Since to
properly chant these mantras requires extensive training and practice, and since
nAma-sankirtana is most pleasing to the Lord and most appropriate for this age, it is most
appropriate to accompany abhisheka with melodious kirtana. We have not excluded any items
to be offered; however, considering time and means available it is possible to make
adjustments, reducing the number of items offered either slightly or extensively, but keeping
the same order of offering given here. This general procedure can be used in the abhisheka of
other Deities than Krishna on appropriate days, with appropriate adjustments — Radha on
Radhastami, Gauranga on Gaura-purnima, etc.
1.Prepare a snana-vedi (pedestal for bathing the Deity), situated within a well decorated mandapa (ideally, a
four-pillared canopied temporary pavillion fenced off by red string).
2.Perform all the pUrvanga-karmas for self-purification: snana, bhuta-suddhi, nyasa, etc.
3.Bring the Lord onto the ved… while waving camaras and sheltering Him with an umbrella.
4.Svasti-vacana (invocation of auspiciousness: chant prayers such as Brahma- samhita, Purusha-sukta,
Vishnu-smarana, Mangala-shanti). (See P.P. Supplement 3, pp. 95-108).
5.Dig-bandhana (binding the directions). (See P.P. Supp., pp. 63-64).
6.Ghata-sthApana (establishing the pot). (Place a copper, brass, or clay pot filled with water on a platform next to
the vedi; place five leaves on it, then a coconut or banana, then flowers or a garland; worship Ganesha in the pot
with 5, 10, or 16 upacharas).
7.Sankalpa (ceremonial vow). (“O Govinda, now, on this [lunar day], in the [lunar fortnight], during the [lunar
month], for the pleasure of Sri Sri [Radha-Shyamasundara - name of your presiding Deities] we will perform the abhisheka bathing ceremony of [Lord Sri Krishna]”).

The subtitles are more or less a literal translation of his Hindi. The English language is not capable of conveying the deep significance of his statements. The eloquent patterns of his Hindi, which is quite different from conventional English, make it impossible to translate one into the other perfectly. Over and above that, my incompetence and inexperience give rice to all sorts of imperfection, inaccuracy and inconsistency.
I humbly request you to be patient with my efforts and bless me to one day perform service to Sri Guru and the Vaisnava's.

Jaya Srila Gurudeva !
Footage taken on 14 August 2009, From 8 pm to 12 midnight, pilgrims, devotees and local Vrajavasis were gathered in Sri Keshavji Gaudiya Math (Mathura) to celebrate Sri Krishna Janmastami under the guidance of our most worshipful Srila Guru Maharaj, Om Vishnupad Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayan Goswami Maharaj. At this time, different groups of local and professional kirtaniyas have come to perform bhajans or devotional prayers as their offering to the Lord and the assembled devotees. The program culminated at midnight with an abhishek or bathing ceremony to Baby Krishna as everyone were in bliss singing and dancing "Jiyo Syam Lala" and yelling "AAj badaai! Hai Gokul men!"
