Incredibly sweet Sita Ram and Radha Krishna darshan at Prem Mandir, Money distribution to the poor on Hariyali Teej 2012, Upcoming Hariyali Teej 2012 festivities at Radha Madhav Dham, USA

Devotees of Kripaluji Maharaj celebrated Hariyali Teej at Prem Mandir temple, Vrindavan


Each year in Braj, in the midst of the rainy season, when fields and jungle have turned shades of lush green and flowers are blossoming all around, the festival of Hariyali Teej is celebrated. During this time in the Temples of Vrindaban, swings are placed in the shrines of the Temples for the Deities to swing upon. This is called jhulan leela. Songs describing the swinging leelas of Radha Krishna are sung and devotees imagine they are actually there swinging their Divine Beloved on the swing. Everyone is invited to take a turn swinging the swing as the incredibly sweet and loving jhulan leela pads of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj are chanted.

Over 53,000 devotees and members of the public came to Prem Mandir, Vrindavan to have the Hariyali Teej darshan of Sita Ram and Radha Krishna on July 22nd, 2012. Here are some scenes of beautifully decorated Sita Ram and Radha Krishna at Prem Mandir, shared from Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat facebook page
