Madhyahna-lila: Midday Pastimes

The noon raja-bhoga offering of a full meal to the Deities is their main offering of the day and corresponds to Krsna's lunch-often a forest feast send by Mother Yasoda. This happens amidst many wonderful and enchanting amorous pastimes with Shri Radha and her charming associate gopis in the many wonderful groves of Radha-kunda. At the time of the offering of these foodstuffs to the Deities, devotees traditionally sing the Bhaja Bhakata-vatsala, Bhoga-arati song of Bhaktivinoda Thakura for the pleasure of the Deities--a heartfelt expression of Krsna's enjoyment of the innumerable tasty preparations offered.
