Sri Krishna-Janma-Tithi Vidhi by Srila RUpa Gosvami

Sri Krishna-Janma-Tithi Vidhi by Srila RUpa Gosvami

THIS IS A simplified version of Srila RUpa Gosvami’s description of how to perform
abhisheka to the Lord on Krishna-Janmasthami. The main simplification is the exclusion of the
extensive Vedic mantras which accompany the offering of most of the items. Since to
properly chant these mantras requires extensive training and practice, and since
nAma-sankirtana is most pleasing to the Lord and most appropriate for this age, it is most
appropriate to accompany abhisheka with melodious kirtana. We have not excluded any items
to be offered; however, considering time and means available it is possible to make
adjustments, reducing the number of items offered either slightly or extensively, but keeping
the same order of offering given here. This general procedure can be used in the abhisheka of
other Deities than Krishna on appropriate days, with appropriate adjustments — Radha on
Radhastami, Gauranga on Gaura-purnima, etc.

Preliminary Activities

1.Prepare a snana-vedi (pedestal for bathing the Deity), situated within a well decorated mandapa (ideally, a
four-pillared canopied temporary pavillion fenced off by red string).
2.Perform all the pUrvanga-karmas for self-purification: snana, bhuta-suddhi, nyasa, etc.
3.Bring the Lord onto the ved… while waving camaras and sheltering Him with an umbrella.
4.Svasti-vacana (invocation of auspiciousness: chant prayers such as Brahma- samhita, Purusha-sukta,
Vishnu-smarana, Mangala-shanti). (See P.P. Supplement 3, pp. 95-108).
5.Dig-bandhana (binding the directions). (See P.P. Supp., pp. 63-64).
6.Ghata-sthApana (establishing the pot). (Place a copper, brass, or clay pot filled with water on a platform next to
the vedi; place five leaves on it, then a coconut or banana, then flowers or a garland; worship Ganesha in the pot
with 5, 10, or 16 upacharas).
7.Sankalpa (ceremonial vow). (“O Govinda, now, on this [lunar day], in the [lunar fortnight], during the [lunar
month], for the pleasure of Sri Sri [Radha-Shyamasundara - name of your presiding Deities] we will perform the abhisheka bathing ceremony of [Lord Sri Krishna]”).

Srila Gurudeva cantando Damodarastakam

Every morning class during Kartik 2009, Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayan Gosvami Maharaj spoke about a verse from Sri Damodarastakam. This video shows Srila Maharaj singing each sloka on a different day. For the video's with full explanation of each verse visit

The pastime of Damodar

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja telling the pastime of Damodar being bound during the Bhakti Yoga Festival 2009 in Houston.

The subtitles are more or less a literal translation of his Hindi. The English language is not capable of conveying the deep significance of his statements. The eloquent patterns of his Hindi, which is quite different from conventional English, make it impossible to translate one into the other perfectly. Over and above that, my incompetence and inexperience give rice to all sorts of imperfection, inaccuracy and inconsistency.

I humbly request you to be patient with my efforts and bless me to one day perform service to Sri Guru and the Vaisnava's.

Janmastami Bangalore 2008

Under the guidance of Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja. The deities of Radha Vinodabihari came to our matha in Bangalore from Vrindavana just before Janmastami, and it seemed that they arranged everything. We had rented a small space, but a bigger place became available for the same cost because it was mis-booked for another party, then the flower decorator who decorates Tirupathi temple during big festivals decoracted the pandal for free. Pious people came forward with donations to cover all the expenses, devotees from the Sri Sampradaya cooked, Sripad Tridandi Maharaja came down to speak.... a miracle!
