Shri Krishna Goshala was inaugurated on the Janmashtami of 1995. Hence we celebrate this day both as Shri Krishna Janmashtami and as the Foundation Day. On this day, the old and the new devotees and supporters of the Goshala gather. They celebrate the birthday of Shri Krishna with singing bhajans and performing worship etc. Thereafter prasadam is distributed.
This is the special festival dedicated to the worship of Gomata. It was on the eighth day of the month of Karthik that Shri Krishna first went on shepherding with his friends. On this day, people come to the Goshala with great devotion in their hearts. It is no less than a fair on this day in the Goshala. Thousands of people gather here all day. They go to their homes only after accepting prasadam in the evening.
For centuries, the transition of the Sun into the zodiac sign of Makara rashi (Capricorn) on its celestial path, has been celebrated as the festival of Makar Sankranti on 14th of January.
