Short video clip about Diwali 2012 at Radha Madhav Dham

Radha Madhav Dham, the US ashram of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, is the home of one of the largest Diwali celebrations, the festival of lights, in America. The Diwali celebration at Radha Madhav Dham is absolutely unique in that it also reveals the true, spiritual meaning of Diwali. Diwali 2012 at Radha Madhav Dham will be an amazing chance to experience a whole line-up of devotional and fun activities, spend devotional time with family and friends, meet like-minded spiritual seekers and have the Diwali darshan of Shree Raseshwari Radha Rani and Krishna.

As well as a special Diwali satsang, there will be a Diwali discourse by Swami Nikhilanand, pracharak of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, on the spiritual significance of Diwali. Later on, there will be a grand fireworks display, dandia garba danced to a live band, who will perform Gujarati folk, garba, semi-classical and Bollywood dance styles.

When Radha and Krishna were on the earth planet, They also celebrated Diwali in a special way. They went to Mansi Ganga (a large holy pond near Govardhan hill) and placed floating diyas on the water from opposite sides of the pond. Then They, along with all the Gopis and Gwalbals, created waves with their hands, causing the diyas to cover the entire pond. Diwali has many different aspects, but for the devotees of Radha Krishna, it's a special time to remember and experience these Diwali leelas of Radha Krishna through chanting of unique devotional songs revealed by Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj which describe those leelas.

The highlight of the evening is spending time with Radha Krishna and having Their Diwali darshan. Sitting in the prayer hall, singing the Diwali leela songs of Radha Krishna and having Their darshan is a unique and magical feeling like no other.

Govardhan Pooja will be celebrated the next day, Sunday, November 11th. In India, Diwali 2012 and Govardhan Pooja will be celebrated with Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 13th and 14th.
