5 Must-Read Quotes By Lord Krishna To Make Your Janmashtami More Meaningful


The festival of Janmashtami is celebrated here and we are sure you must be gearing up for the celebrations already. Janmashtami, the Hindu festival is celebrated to celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna. Lord Krishna is known to be the bearer of pragmatic wisdom. In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna offers advice to Arjuna during the Kurukshetra battle. At the battlefield when Arjuna’s mind is flustered with ethical dilemmas, Lord Krishna comes to his rescue. He renders Arjuna with practical advice that helps the Pandavas to win against the Kauravas. Little did Lord Krishna know that what he had said in those times would become the guiding light in today’s modern times. Here are the 5 must-read quotes by Lord Krishna to make your Janmashtami meaningful.

Lord Krishna said:

“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of someone else’s life with perfection.”


In the holy book of Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna has shared much of his wisdom and knowledge to Arjuna. His wisdom and intellect enlighten us even today.  He said:

“You came here empty-handed and you will leave empty-handed. What is yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday and will belong to someone else tomorrow.”


His very famous saying which is more than relevant in the 21st century is that we should keep working on our goals without the worry or attachment of the results that it will yield. Oftentimes, in this modern world, we tend to remain attached to the results. Lord Krishna’s advice proves to be an inspiration in such times.
