Shri Krishna Balram Mandir Jaipur: Radhashtami celebrated with traditional zeal & fervour 

Radhashtami was celebrated at Shri Krishna Balram Mandir, Jagatpura under the aegis of Hare Krishna Movement, Jaipur, fifteen days after Shri Krishna Janmashtami with traditional zeal and fervour.

On this occasion, a grand event was organised and Shri Radha Raman ji idol was decorated with a new mesmerising dress. The sanctum sanctorum was bedecked with beautiful colorful flowers which were seen spreading their fragrance everywhere around.

Radhashtami is celebrated on the Ashtami (Ashtami of Shukla Paksha) of Shukla Paksha of Bhadra month (August-September). It is a very important festival for the devotees. Radharani is the mother of the entire universe and on this auspicious day, devotees pray to her to bless her with Krishna-devotion.

When Radha opened her eyes for the first time to see the world

When Vrishabhanu Maharaj heard the discussions of Nanda Baba’s son Shri Krishna, he himself came to Gokul with his daughter Radha in his lap. It is said that till then Radha’s eyes remained closed. She reached Balakrishna walking on her knees. Then Radha’s eyes were opened and after her birth, she had the first vision of Shri Krishna with her eyes.

As per Amitasana Das, the president of the temple, “Shri Radha Raman was dressed in new clothes and specially decorated with flowers. 108 special bhog was offered to Thakur ji at 12 noon. A special hymn Radhika Ashtakam was sung, Shri Radha Raman was anointed with various types of flowers and fruit juices and Panchamrit, as well as special story and Maha Aarti was done and lastly palanquin festival was celebrated with flower showers. The program was broadcast live on the temple’s YouTube channel Hare Krishna Jaipur, Facebook page.”
