With Sri Swamiji’s divine blessigns and the divine couple’s poorna krupa, Jacksonville GOD Satsang had the blessing of hosting Sri Radha Krishna Kalyana Mahotsavam on Saturday, 6th of May 2017. About 75 bhakthas participated and got the divine couple’s blessings. The kalyanam started with the Mahamanthra chanting as a group and went on with the kramam. The Radha-Krishna moorthys and our beloved Premika Varadan-Madhuri Sakhi were glowing since the early hours of the morning. Bhakthas from Orlando, FL had come all the way, despite the 2 hour drive, on time for the event and the Ashtapathi team rendered Sampradaya bhajans and Ashtapathis with utmost devotion during the entire event. All the wedding rituals were performed with shradhdha and bhakthi right from the kolams, shringar, music, sweets, gifts to the traditional wedding feast. The traditional wedding feast was all home made by the lovely Satsang ladies of Jacksonville. The morning event concluded with a Hari Katha – Sri Narasimha Namaste by Samyuktha Sridhar. The katha was to also celebrate the upcoming Sri Narasimha Jeyanthi on 9th of May, 2017 and celebrated the puNya kshethram of Ahobilam. Periyazhwar and Thirumangai Azhwar pasurams on this kshethram and bhagwan were recited and concluded with the Keerthanavali on Ahobilam.
The evening event was Nama-filled. The satsang members from Jacksonville and Orlando chanted Mahamanthra for 2 hours and concluded with the Aarthi with Kaliyaiyum bali kollum and later on followed by Dolotsavam. The grand celebration was an event to remember, for all the satsang families. Praying to Sri Swamiji that many more events be held in Jacksonville, in future.
