2016 Shri Krishna Janmashtami @ 14619

It has been a hectic few months with two India visits back to back. My first trip was from July 4th – July 24th and the second one was from August 12th – August 24th. Yes, came back just the night before Shri Krishna Janmashtami. I had to travel back to speak at a conference and do a workshop in Kerala. I was also able to spend the last day of our Beloved Rayara Aaradhane in Bangalore, had prasada at 4th T block Jayanar mutta Bangalore. I also visited Shree Kamadhenu Kshetra in Bangalore, and would love to share the miracle which happened there. A new post and some pictures coming soon.

Since the last visit I have had severe back pain and undergoing physical therapy to relive the pain. As such was unable to make too many items for the festival yesterday. So, the decoration was simple, food was simple, but there was no lack of energy to do the pooje or sing all the devotional songs.

Attached below are the pictures of the pooje and the very simple food preparation. Hope you all had a wonderful celebration of Lord Krishna Janmashtami.

      Very simple Sir. The back pain and the travel didn’t allow me to do much. Hope to get better for the upcoming Ganesha festival.

    Just beautiful, Meera! Your devotion to Lord Krishna gave you all the strength to perform the festival. As always, the pictures are beautiful. I am happy you had darshana & tirtha-prasada at 4th ‘T’ block mutt, which is very near to my parent’s house. Here, we were to happy to have darshana & tirtha-prasada at Krishna Vrundavana, in New Jersey on the last Aradhana day.
