See visitors' accounts of Radha Madhav Dham Austin Holi here and here.

Despite days of severe weather warnings of tornadoes and thunderstorms, scattered showers throughout the night before and the morning of, over 4,500 people came out to celebrate Braj style Holi 2014 at Radha Madhav Dham, the US ashram of Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj.

The rain stopped as soon as the festivities began around 2 pm in the afternoon. People started streaming into the temple, sat through Holi 2014 sankirtan and were mesmerized by special Holi shringar of Radha Krishna, Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj in Austin Texas.

As they strolled outside, they enjoyed a mini-mela (traditional Indian fair) atmosphere serving variety of freshly prepared Indian food, offering train rides around ashram grounds, presenting items and information from different vendors, and buzzing with numerous kids' games and activities.

Against all odds, the clouds started scattering around 3:30 pm just before the start of a carefully prepared cultural program showcasing children's performances of folk and classical Indian dances. Swami Nikhilanand Ji explained the crowd the spiritual significance of Holi 2014, devotion of Prahlad and the charm of Braj style Holi played by Radha Krishna.

The cultural program concluded with a beautiful enactment of the Prahlad leela which was meticulously prepared by the devotees and thoroughly enjoyed by the crowd.

By now, the clouds had scattered, the sun was out and colors of Holi 2014 at Radha Madhav Dham started flying at the Maharas Mandal.
