14 Anniversary Festival of Vrinda Kunda

BY: DEENA BANDHU DASA


Jan 06, 2017 — VRINDAVAN DHAM (SUN) —

8th February, Varaha Dvadasi will be the 14th Anniversary since the opening of our Vrinda Kunda Temple! To celebrate, we are arranging special parikramas to the Holy Places of Braja. The program culminates with our famous Kalash Yatra, an ecstatic Sankirtan procession with the ladies carrying water pots with coconuts on their heads on 19 Feb. Programs will be going on from 8 Feb-21 March.

Departing almost every morning from Krishna Balaram Mandir, we will go by bus on parikrama to different pastime places of Braja. Lively narrations will be given of the different pastimes that happened in each place. We will return in time for lunch prasadam in the temple. And on all bus parikramas, Sannyasis and Prabhupada Disciples go free of charge.

On Sunday 19th Feb., will be the super ecstatic Kalash Yatra and sankirtan procession around Nandagrama. Kalash means water pot. The ladies will carry on their heads water pots with water from the sacred Pavana Sarovara with colorful cloth and coconuts on top. We'll have 108 pots and the Brijbasi ladies will train our foreign lady devotees how to carry them. Even some of our own ladies who go every year will train them! The Brijbasinis even dance with no hands with their pots on their heads! All the ladies who have participated told me it was the highlight of their Vrindavan experience.

After reaching at Vrinda Kunda, there will be Krishna Katha, butter churning festival, artika, and then feast for one and all. Then everyone can help feed all the Nandagram Brijbasis. That day transportation and prasad will be free for all who come.

So please come relish wonderful Vaisnava association in the Holy Dhama! Especially for those coming for the Anniversary Festivals at Tirupati, Ujjain, Aravade, and Noida on Nityananda Trayodasi and are wondering what to do till Mayapur Festival starts, most of our parikramas will take place after Nityananda Trayodasi. And our schedule ends 2 days before kirtan mela starts in Sri Mayapur!
