7 Oct 2006 Saturday Purnima, Shri Krishna: "http:///" Sharadiya Rasayatra & Shrimati Laksmi Devi Puja
Krishna: "http:///" Sharadiya Rasayatra:
The first full moon of the autumn season marks the celebration of Lord Krishna: "http:///"’s dancing with the Gopis. On this day the Deities of Vrindavana are nicely decorated in white. Because the moon is very auspicious, the Vraja Vasis leave pots of sweet rice exposed to the full moon for the whole night, to turn the swet rice into amrita (nectar).
Shrimati Lakshmi Devi Puja:
Lord Vishnu for the first time worhipped His eternal consort Goddess Lakshmi on this day.
