The Pushpa Abhishek Festival, bathing the Lord with different fragrant flowers from the temple gardens, has become a favorite in New Vrindaban. While marigolds, rose petals, and other colorful flowers cascaded on the radiant forms of Sri Sri Radha Vrindaban Chandra on Saturday evening, His Holiness Lokanath Swami led a soul-stirring kirtan accompanied by the cheering of devotees. In the grand finale Their Lordships were showered with lotus petals from the lotus pond. And as multi-colored flower petals rained on the Deities at the end, the crowd roared with delight. Then the flower petals were showered upon the audience as maha-prasada, who in turn threw them on one another, creating a fun and memorable occasion.
