Jhulan Yatra – Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple Swing festival

The Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Colombo is celebrating “Jhulan Yatra” from the 3rd of August 2017 until the 7th of August 2017. This festival is to commemorate the childhood pastimes of Sri Krishna with his friends, the young cowherd boys and girls, swinging underneath the trees during the rainy season which usually falls in the month of August. The festival is one of the biggest celebrations in Vrindavan – the land where Lord Krishna exhibited his childhood pastimes. In Sri Lanka, the festival will be celebrated for five days, from the eleventh day of the bright fortnight known as the Ekadashi until the full-moon day known as Purnima.

The Deities of Sri Krishna and Srimati Radharani will be adorned beautifully and placed on a swing decorated with flowers where the devotees will be able to take part in swaying the swing and offer direct and personal service to their Lordships after the Pooja. There will be kirtan and bhajans taking place in which the devotees can take part.
