Sri Radhastami - Sunday, September 16 & Monday, September 17
You are invited for celebration of the appearance day of Srimati Radharani on Sunday, September 16 and Monday, September 17. We will be honored to celebrate with His Holiness Candramauli Swami on both days.
Srimati Radharani is the eternal consort of Lord Krishna. Five thousand years ago, when Lord Krishna came to this planet to perform His pastimes, Srimati Radharani also appeared. This special day is known as Radhashtami. On this day only one may take darshan of Srimati Radharani's lotus feet, which are covered on all other days. The day of Radhastami is spent by the devotees in reading the transcendental pastimes of Radharani and Her gopi friends, and Her lila pastimes in the groves of Vrndavana with Krishna.
Devotees carefully worship Srimati Radharani as the bestower of devotional service to Krishna, by attentively chanting Her name in the maha-mantra, by worshiping Her Deity form, and by following the instructions of the most merciful Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who is the combined form of Radha and Krishna.
