    नमस्कार

    क्या आप हमें बता सकते है कि जन्माष्टमी का उपवास कब से कब तक यानि किस तारीख से किस तारीख समय तक रखना चाहिए

    क्योंकि मैं कह रहा हूँ की 25 तारीख को पूरे दिन उपवास रखकर 25 की रात 12 बजे यानि 26 तारीख की पहले 12 बजे रात को भगवान श्री कृष्ण का उपवास छोड़ सकते है

    परंतु मेरी माता श्री कह रही है नही समय दुसरा है

    कृपया जल्द से जल्द क्या आप हमसे उपवास का समय और तिथि साझा कर सकते हैं ?

    धन्यवाद

    जय श्रीराम
    जय श्री कृष्ण
