Sharad Purnima

Date: Thursday 5th October 2017

Kartik Full Moon Festival

It is said that the love of the Gopis, the cowherd damsels of Vrindavan, for Krishna is the topmost love. It is without a tinge of selfishness and material motivation. The Gopis are the embodiment of the highest expression of the soul's love for God, because pleasing God is their exclusive aspiration of life.

Sharad Purnima is celebrated on the full moon night of Sarad-ritu (October). This is the night when Lord Krishna performed the Rasa dance. This dance represents the most perfect intimacy between the infinitesimal soul and the Supreme soul, free of any material tinge of selfish desire, but charged with intense bliss. In reciprocation with the love of the Gopis, Krishna expanded Himself to dance with each Gopi in their eternal spiritual bodies. Devotees celebrate this full-moon night of love and affection by dressing Their Lordships with magnificent dresses and glittering ornaments. The entire altar is decorated with flowers. An ambience of the starlit, full moon night of Vrindavan, filled with fragrant flower bushes and tender green creepers is created. The enchanting atmosphere surcharged with melodious kirtans is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Come along to celebrate the full moon night of Radha Krishna's rasa dance and a once-in-a-year special darshan of Their Lordships.
