2019 Shree Krishna Pooja Pictures

Hope you all had a wonderful and joyous Shree Krishna Jayanthi/Janmasthami. The festival was on a Friday, so I tool two days off on Thursday and Friday.

Last year I had just recovered from my ankle fracture, so this year I had so much enthusiasm to celebrate and welcome our Lord. Didn’t even have a drop of water.

My own blog helped in getting all the links for songs, food items and recipes.

Food prepration like you see were items such as:

    • Moong dal Kosambari
    • Channa dal Kosambari
    • Uppittu or Upma
    • Avalakki
    • Sweet Avalakki
    • Thengolu
    • Om Pudi
    • Shankar Poli
    • Chakli
  • Rava Laddoo
  • Besan Laddoo

I had brought the Mantapa my Late brother-in-law used to perform Shree Satyanarayana Pooje. We were able polish the same, and use it for this festival and will keep using it for all upcoming festivals. I just couldn’t take away my eyes from the Pooje we did. It was truly humbling.

Some picture from this year. You can click on pictures to see them enlarged.

Pooje preparation:

Close up of our Mantapa and the Lord.

And of course food.

Now for the next big festival Shree Gowri Ganesha Festival. We have holiday even for Gowri and Ganesha festival so that’s super awesome.

Will post all links and recipes as we approach the festival.

May Lord Krishna Bless us all. Jai Shree Krishna!

    Dear Sahodari Meera Raghu, I really like the way you celebrate all our Habbas in a typical Madhwa tradition in their true spirit. I am so glad that you do it so neatly & with the particular recipes. That’s really great. I’ve been following you since when I first saw your blog in the last decade. But only now I am commenting. I wish you all the good things to happen in your life with god’s grace & blessings.- SN Deshpande

    Excellent photo images. It is great that in an alien place thousands of miles away, you are able to celebrate the prescribed festivals and observe the connected religious rituals with so much planning and precision, glorifying our deities and seeking their blessings as you would normally do in your home here. You are also. sharing your joy with others, in inviting your friends and relatives over there, for such celebrations. Surely, the Almighty will shower on you His abundant benediction for every happiness in your life. K.LAKSHMAN.
