ImageNaathdwara enshrines Shrinathji - a form of Sri Krishna which was originally enshrined at Govardhana in Vrindavan.

According to local tradition, the deity was discovered by Madhavendra Puri in the forests of Govardhan. Krishna had appeared to him in a dream and asked him to install the deity of Shrinathji who had been originally installed by Vajranabha, the great grandson of Krishna Himself.

Followers of Pushtimarg sampradaya (lineage) which now maintains the worship of Shrinathji in Nathdwara, believe that the deity's arm and face first emerged out of the Govardhan Hill, at which time the local inhabitants (Vrajavasis) and others, including the above mentioned Madhavendra Puri, carried out the worship of the deity's upraised arm and later, his face. In the Hindu Samvat year 1549, according to Pushtimarg literature, Shrinathji appeared to Shri Vallabhacharya, guru and founding philosopher of the Pushtimarg (Path of Grace), and requested the Acharya to proceed to the Govardhan Hill to meet him and begin his (Shrinathji's) worship, beginning the Pushtimarg's current spiritual stewardship of Shrinathji.

Mahalakshmi Darshan
Vasant navratri was observed with maximum participation. Each day was special as devotees were given a chance to have the "darshan" (sight) of Maa Durga in Her three most dynamic forms as Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati. The last day of the navratri was Ramanavami and the entire "bhavan" (altar) was decorated with thousands of flowers. It was truly a spectacular sight.

Ramkatha was held for the enitre vasant navratri with maha aarati to Maa Devi. Our annual children Saraswati puja was held with over 150 youngsters performing puja. They were later treated with a sumptous lunch and gifts were distributed among the boys and girls, from school items to sweets and cookies.

The festivities came to an end with a havan conducted by Pandit Shreeram Dubey. All devotees present were given an opportunity to make offering into the kund.

Our prayer theme was "Sarve bhavantu sukhinah, sarve santu niraamaya, sarve bhadraani pashyantu, maa kashchit dukha bhaag bhavet" - " Let all of creation be happy, let none suffer, let there be peach and prosperity."

Om Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram


SALUTATIONS to Lord Rama, an Incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who is measureless, who is of the nature of pure Consciousness and bliss, who is the consort of Sita, Master of Sri Hanuman, and the Lord of the three worlds, who took His birth at His own will in order to establish righteousness, destroy the wicked and protect His devotees.

Ramnavami or the day of Sri Ram?s appearance falls on the 9th day of the bright fortnight of the month of Chaitra (March-April).

Sri Ram was the Lord Hari Himself, incarnate on earth for the destruction of Ravana. He was well accomplished, beautiful and endowed with royal marks. His glory and prowess were unlimited. He was peerless on earth. He was free from malice. He was gentle. He was the protector of all His people. He always addressed them in gentle words. He never used any harsh words even when somebody provoked Him. He held sway over the whole world.

Image Holi aayi re Kanhaai rang chhalke sunaade zaraa baasuri ? holi aayi re aayi re holi aayi re
The spring festival of holi has arrived, Oh Krishna play for us the sweet music of your flute. The spring festival has arrived !!!

One popular episode of Srimad Bhagwat Mahapuraan that is associated with Holi (Phagwah) is Prahalad?s Charitram ? history of the young devotee of Sri Vishnu Bhagwan.

As recorded in Srimad Bhagwatam, Hiranyakashipu was the king of demons, and he had been granted a boon by Brahma, which made it almost impossible for him to be killed. The boon was due to his long penance, after which he had demanded that he not be killed "during day or night; inside the home or outside, not on earth or on sky; neither by a man nor an animal; neither by astra nor by shastra". Consequently, he grew arrogant, and attacked the Heavens and the Earth. He demanded that people stop worshipping gods and start praying to him. This is a key note for everyone to take, that power certainly can lead to corruption.
