By the immense grace of Guru Maharaj HH Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji and by the causeless mercy of Madhuri Sakhi Sametha Premika Varada Thakurji, Radhashtami was celebrated at Dallas Namadwaar on September 16th from 2 to 5 pm.
The birth of pure love in the form of Radha Devi and her purest form of love for Lord Krishna has been eulogized in the Madhura Geetham kirtans of Guru Maharaj. These kirtans were sung to the Divine couple as they swayed gently in a decorated jhoola.
Surrounded by their devotees singing glories of the Lordships, the Divine couple then went on a Procession and entered Mother Meera Abode. Many lamps were lit to welcome them. In the midst of the lamps and swaying to the tunes of Madhura Geetham, the Divine couple enjoyed both Palki Seva and Deepotsavam at the same time.
After these festivities, they were welcomed back to Namadwaar. Now it was time for cake cutting by the birthday girl. Two sakhis (every young at heart) cut the cake on her behalf which was then partaken by the devotees to their heart’s content.
Everyone then prayed to the Divine couple and Guru Maharaj to bestow us all with Gopi Bhava Bhakti.
