Sri Krishna Mandir
The divine appearance day of Srimati Radharani, the eternal consort of Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Radhastami is a very special day for all the Gaudiya Vaishnavas, as by obtaining the mercy of Srimati Radharani one can easily achieve Krishna-prema. Radha is Krishna’s dearest servant, and is His Pleasure Potency. Srimati Radharani’s glorious birth occurred on the eighth day of the bright moon in the month of Bhadra.
Although generally not full on that day, the moon appeared full to celebrate Radharani’s appearance in this world. Among all of Krishna’s consorts in Sri Vrindavana, Srimati Radharani is the greatest. In fact, She is the queen of Vrndavana.
On Radhashtami day, the temple will be lavishly decorated with flowers and garlands. Srimati Radharani’s glories are narrated in the morning Bhagavatam class. There will be Puspanjali (Offering of Flowers) at noon. Devotees fast till noon and enjoy a transcendental feast in the afternoon.
