Vrinda Kunda Festival Schedule

Monday, 28 January 2019 / Published in Message Board / 313 views


17 February, Varaha Dvadasi will be 16 years since the opening of our Vrinda
Kunda Temple! To celebrate, we will do special parikramas to the Holy Places of
Braja. The program will culminate with our famous Kalash Yatra, an ecstatic
Sankirtan procession with the ladies carrying water pots with coconuts on their
heads on 25 Feb. Programs will be going on from 17 Feb-3 March.

We will depart almost every morning from Krishna Balaram Mandir by bus and go
on parikrama to different pastime places of Braja, like Gokul, Barsana, etc.
There will be lively narrations of the different pastimes that happened in each
place. Then we will return in time for lunch prasadam in the temple. And on all
bus parikramas, Sannyasis and Prabhupada Disciples and their families will go
free of charge.

Then on Monday 25th Feb., we will be having the super ecstatic Kalash Yatra
and sankirtan procession around Nandagram. Kalash means water pot. All the
ladies will carry water pots with water from the sacred Pavan Sarovar 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. That day is free for
everyone!

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 all 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.
