ITANAGAR: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (retd) Dr BD Mishra and Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Tuesday extended their greetings to the people of the state on the auspicious occasion of Janmastami.
In his message, the Governor said that Janmastami is the day of birth of Lord Krishna, the incarnation of God Vishnu. Lord Krishna was born as a pure and infinite consciousness to eliminate the evil and revive the goodness. This day marks the beginning of the end of darkness and rooting out of the evil forces dominating the earth, he said.
He said that Lord Krishna's birth and life have had profound redeeming impact on the Indian culture, philosophy and values of life. The verses of the lord revealed to the great archer Arjuna on the sacred battlefield of Kurukshetra, are contained in Bhagwat Gita, a part of the epic 'Mahabharata'.
"These verses highlight Dharma, Yoga, Karma, Jnana and Bhakti as the essential virtues of a warrior for Justice. Righteous action, without attachment to the result, is the fundamental principle espoused in Bhagwat Gita," he said and exhorted the people to imbibe the noble teachings of Lord Krishna for the benefit of humanity.
"May the festival inspire us to inculcate best action, just action and right action," the governor added.
Khandu in his festival message said, "Today is very precious day. Someone special was born to fight against inhumanity. Born to save the trust in God. Happy Krishna Janmashtami. I wish u Happy Krishna Janmashtami and pray to God for prosperity in life. May all find the delights of life and all dreams come true." (IANS)
