Goverdhan Puja27 Oct 2017, Posted by
Goverdhan Puja was celebrated on October 20th 2017. It commemorates the pastime of Lord Sri Krishna lifting the Govardhana Hill to protect the residents of Vrindavana from the wrath of Indra. Devotees gathered in large numbers and witnessed the Annkuta festival. Following in the footsteps of the residents of Vrindavana, this festival is celebrated every year in the month of Kartika. Devotees prepared varieties of foodstuffs with grain and ghee and all kinds of milk preparations. The food was stacked like a small hill and offered to the Lord. Thus the name Annakuta Festival. The main highlight was katha by HG Rukmini Krishna prabhu, followed by prasadam.
