Sri Balarama Jayanti 2018
Krishna is the Supreme Personality of the Godhead. He is the only source of all the incarnations. First expansion of Krishna, is the embodiment of the Sat or Sandhini shakti, which is the potency of existence of the Lord. He is Lord Balarama, These two are not different and Both of Them have the same identity. As far as the dissimilarity is concerned, They vary just in the colour. Lord Balarama is the source of the entire spiritual world and is the adi-guru, the original spiritual master.
Balaram ji Appearance:
Balaram Ji is a 16-year-old boy, full of zeal and has a bright fair complexion. He wears blue clothes and a garland prepared with forest flowers. He usually ties His hair in a topknot. As far as the jewels are concerned, He wears earrings, bracelets, armlets and beautifully crafted anklets.When earrings touch His cheeks, He looks even more attractive. He puts tilaka on His forehead. He has a broad chest and has the graver voice. Physically He is very strong.
Balaramji’s Plough, ploughs the earth. Guru ploughs our heart
Lord Balaram carries a plough, the reason for which is to cultivate the hearts of the devotees so that it becomes fertile and suitable for the seed of Bhakti to grow nicely. Being the Adi Guru tattva, He guides the devotees on their spiritual path so that they can go back home back to Godhead.
Balaram in Vrindavan is called upon by the name of Dauji.
Dauji means the older brother. But we must understand that all of these wonderful beautiful lilas they are all orchestrated for the pleasure of the Lord. In the spiritual world there is infinite variegatedness and all of that variegatedness is simply expressions of the love of Krishna for His devotee and love of the devotees for Krishna.
