Sri Nathji and Nathdwara Yatra.
In Sri Caitanya-Caritamrta we find that the deity Gopala, the same Deity known as Sri Nathji, told Madhavendra Puri, “In My village, no one goes hungry.” Now, here in Nathdwara, where Gopala has come, we see that this is true. Prasadam is available all through the day and in countless varieties different kinds at different times. After the midday raja-bhoga offering one can get a leaf-cup full of tasty vegetables at a minimal price. There are many kinds of chutneys, pickles, fruit salads and a unique raita made with chopped fruit in thin yogurt spiced with mustard seeds. There are big chapatis full of ghee size. You will find rice, dal, curry sauce, fried vegetables and samosas so huge that one is practically enough for a meal. Then there are milk sweets and sweets made with grains and sugar, rich with ghee. You can buy big blocks of laddu, made with grain, ghee and sugar. Some sweets include such costly ingredients as musk and saffron.
