Jhulan Yatra 2007
24th-28th August

Jhulan Yatra is an important Vaishnava festival. It is one of the eternal Astaka lila pastimes that Radha Madhava and Their associates perform daily in Goloka Vrindaban. As recommended by Parasara muni in the Parasara Samhita, one should observe this festival every day, or at least from the day of ekadasi to Balaram purnima. This Jhulan festival gives everyone the rare opportunity to serve Their Lordships personally.

Srila Prabhupada instructed us to observe Jhulan Yatra:

“Regarding Jhulan yatra Ceremony, during these five days the Deities’ clothing should be changed everyday, and there should be nice Prasadam distribution and Sankirtana as far as possible. If you are able to do it, a nice throne may be constructed on which the Deities can be placed. This throne may be swung gently during Kirtana. That will be very good, and surely the Deities will enjoy the function.”

letter to H.H. Jayapataka Swami, 1st August 1969.

For the past 20 years the Vaisnava youth have spontaneously arranged a beautiful swing festival, with kirtans, bhajans, dramas, and prasadam distribution. This has become very popular with everyone.The Mayapur mangement were so pleased by our efforts that this year they requested us to personally organize the main Jhulan festival for Sri Sri Radha Madhava. We gladly accepted this opportunity and are arranging the biggest Julan Yatra festival yet. We cordially invite you to assist us and in so doing receive the blessings of Their Lordships.
