Janmasthmi Celebration @RGDDC

The Holy month of August holds a very special meaning for the devotees of Shri Radha Krishna. It was during this time when Shri Krishna descended from his personal abode Golok to grace the countless souls with His Divine love. Devotees were filled with delight to celebrate of the birth of Krishna for the very first time at Radha Govind Dham DC. A large crowd of wonderful people from the city of Ashburn and other neighboring cities in Virginia gathered to celebrate the joyous occasion. The celebrations began with prayers and blissful chants celebrating the arrival of baby Krishna in Braj and His Divine childhood Leelas. This was followed by a Video of a divine  discourse given by Shri Kripaluji Maharaj explaining the significance of Janamansthami, cultural program, costume contest for the best-dressed Radha Krishna and Mahaprasad (lovingly and generously prepared by different Devotees). Devotees also enjoyed swinging baby Krishna, doing Abhishek of Shri Krishna along with melodious Kirtans being chanted in the background. Finally, Baba Vasudev arrived with Bal Krishna right before midnight. The devotees welcomed baby Krishna singing chants and dancing with joy. The event came to a close with the Arati of Bal Krishna.
