Gopashtmi - Money distribution to poor patients & staff of JKP Hospital

Devotees celebrating gopashtmi with Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj
A festival dedicated to Lord Krishn, Gopashtami, was celebrated today, November 3rd, in Bhakti Dham ashram, Mangarh, during the 2011 annual sadhana program there.

Gopashtami or Gopa Ashtami, is observed on the eighth day during waxing phase of the moon (Shukla Paksha) in Kartik month (October – November).

These celebrations commemorate Shree Krishn’s childhood leelas related to tending cows in Braj. Traditionally on this day, cows are bathed and decorated, and “go” or cow pooja, a small ceremony, is performed.

Money distribution by Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj
One of the events which marked this day in Mangarh was a money distribution program by Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj to the poor patients & staff of the Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat Hospital. Please visit the facebook page of JKP Hospitals to view the full photo set.
