Shri Krishna Janmashtami was celebrated across North America with tremendous ardor and enthusiasm. In accordance with tradition, the festivities were carried out through various devotional and cultural presentations including drama skits staging the birth and episodes of Shri Krishna's life.

The general program included various kirtans extolling the divinity of Bhagwan Shri Krishna and these buoyant devotional songs rocked the audience into a spirit of devotion. Speeches praising the glory of Shri Krishna reminded all of the need for single-minded and unconditional devotion to God and the words of the spiritual master "Karishyam Vacha Tavaha". Topics centered around the virtues of Shri Krishna and the relevance of Shri Krishna's message in today's society.

The youths presented the drama "Paksha" while children performed beautifully choreographed dances thus adding a traditional flavor to the festivities. The finale took place with Shri Krishna Janmotsav and the singing of "Nand Gher Anand Bhayo, Jai Kanaiya Laal Ki" as all participated in swinging the beautifully adorned cradle of Shri Krishna filling the entire atmosphere with divinity.
