In Braj, Holi festivities begin from Barsana Holi which is about 8 days earlier than the actual Holi. It is the second largest festivity of Barsana when thousands and thousands of people arrive from around Braj to watch the most spectacular and amazing style of ‘Barsana Holi celebration.’ After that, Holi is celebrated in different styles in various places of Braj at different dates. The lanes of Vrindaban become red as all the people play Holi with colored powder and water sprayed from pichkaris (special squirts). Everyone is covered in color. Traditional songs called rasiya are sung on Holi. Sweets are distributed and friends and family come together to celebrate fostering social harmony. 

On Holi, Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj showers his Grace and love on all the souls who are blessed to participate in the joyous celebration of the festival of colors. Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj traditionally comes from his residence to play Holi with the devotees. A large stage, which is decorated with beautiful flowers, would be specially erected for this occasion. Tons of gulal (pink powder) is kept in buckets on the stage and is thrown in abundance, covering all the devotees and creating colorful clouds over the enthusiastic crowd of thousands of devotees. On Holi, we chant Holi pads and rasiyas that describe the Holi leelas of Radha Krishna. This is also the day when Shree Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji appeared on the earth planet, so it is one of the most auspicious days for the devotees of Radha Krishna.
