Radhastami 2006 Pics!

To say that Radhastami was a "fantastic occasion" is probably the understatement of the year! Next to Janmastami (and Gaura Purnima for me), Radhastami is the most important day of the year given our ambitions for Radha-dasyam. The beauty of it all is that, unlike Janmastami which draws huge crowds, it is a relatively intimate occasion that takes place among a templeful of devotees. It is still crowded, no doubt, but not like Janmastami.

Nothing much to report on my side though. I took a half-day off work in order to go to the temple in time for the Raj-bhog arati and perform some seva by way of serving the feast. Of course I took my camera along! And just 'feast' on the results:

Temple Room:

See how beautifully it was decorated...


What you're all waiting for - Sri Sri Radha-Gokulananda in all Their finery!:

The Utsav-deities:

(The third deity in the last pic is that of Smt. Vrinda-devi)

Sri Sri Sita-Rama-Lakshmana-Hanuman (and the Rama-śīla)

I'll post more pics tomorrow of the cakes and closeups.
