Joyous Upcoming Festivals at Barsana Dham, India with Shree Kripaluji Maharaj

Related Post: Kripaluji Maharaj in Mangarh


August and September is a time of the year when some of the most joyous Hindu Festivals are celebrated at the worldwide ashrams of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj.

There's Rakcha Bandhan August 16th, Krishn Janmashtmi August 24th and Radha Ashtmi September 7th.

Rakcha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of Shravan (August) according to the Hindu calendar. Rakcha means ‘protection’ and bandhan means ‘to tie a knot.’ Rakcha Bandhan is also known as Rakhi. It has both, social and spiritual significance. As a social occasion it promotes good relations among family and friends, especially brothers and sisters. But in the spiritual sense a Spiritual Master ties a decorated thread (specially made for this occasion) around the wrist of the devotee which signifies his caring for his devotee. On this day thousands of devotees line up to receive a rakhi from Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj.

This year, Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj will celebrate Rakcha Bandhan at Rangeeli Mahal ashram in Barsana Dham, India.
