Festivals

Festivals were an integral part of ancient Vedic Culture. They made spiritual progress a fun-filled experience. But with time, the spiritual aspect took a back seat and most festivals glided down to mere hollow entertainments, that which fondled the mind and senses, but never touched the soul.

The festivals at Sri Sri Gaur Radha Krishna Mandir are celebrated in their totality-to nourish the senses, mind and soul. The original Vedic flavor is thus revived. Common features of every festival are beautiful decorations, fragrant flowers, fine music, and the best of food, all offered for the pleasure of the Lord, and after the Lord accepts them, the devotees are nourished by His remnants.
