Shri Golok Dham Ashram, New Delhi Celebrates 7th Anniversary of Consecration

Shri Golok Dham Ashram celebrated its 7th anniversary with a 9 day Shri Shiva Mahapuran Katha, inspired by Shri Sadgurudev Ji Maharaj.

During this time, Shri Mahashivaratri was celebrated with the usual night long 11 Rudrabhishekams as well as offering a Deepaka consisting of 125,000 wicks to Lord Shiva.

The Katha was delivered by Swami Shri Shuddhaatmananda Ji Maharaj from Vaijanath Dham in a wonderful manner. The Katha took place on the Verandah of the Mandir, in front of Shri Amarnidhi Hanuman ji – a wonderful setting for the divine leelas of Lord Shiva, the greatest Vaishnava.

On the last day, Phulera Dooj, which was the actual anniversary day, there was a Ratha Yatra, Gau Puja followed by Katha Purnahuti and Mahamrityunjaya Yagya Purnahuti. Then, Thakur Shri Shri Radhagolokavihariji Bhagavan was offered Abhisheka, 1008 Lotus and Tulasi offerings and then Chhappan Bhog Darshan. For the first time ever, Shri Sharaneshwara Mahadeva was dressed with the adornments of Shri Gopishwar Mahadev, and offered Chhappan Bhog of Thakurji’s Prasadam. The Utsav Aarati concluded a wonderful celebration. In the evening, devotees enjoyed a wonderful Raas Leela.

Radhe Radhe!
