This video from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly depicts Hindus of the Rajdhani Mandir Temple in Chantilly, Virginia celebrating the birthday of Lord Krishna on the holy day of Janmashtami. Krishna is the reincarnation of Lord Vishnu, a god of the Trimurti. During Janmashtami, Hindus often recreate the story of Krishna’s beginnings with a celebration involving a live baby in a cradle. They also rotate a flame clockwise around a Krishna statue and receive offerings made of butter and milk.
