Vrindavan, 2012.01.30 (Vina): There is so much happening in Vrindavan, especially at the time of Vasanta Panchami, when there are festivals in many temples. It is a favorite day for installations and other auspicious activities. It is also the day that Shyamanananda’s Pranadhan, Shri Shri Shyamasundara appeared in this world. Unfortunately, it was not possible to report on all these events this year, but we share the information that we got about Shyamasundarji. Jai Shri Radhe!
The 435th anniversary of the manifestation of Shri Shri Radha Shyamsundar jee, which is also the 433rd anniversary of the installation of Shrimati Radharani’s murti and her marriage to Shyamsundarji, as well as their 294th year of enthronement, took place on January 28th of this year, Vasanta Panchami, or as it is known at the Shyamsundar temple, Sri Sri Shyamsundar Panchami.
This is the letter that the temple adhikari Shri Krishnagopalanand Dev Goswami Prabhupada
sent out to the invitees:
I feel delighted and privileged to give this blissful and rejoicing information to you that Shri Shri Shyam Sunder Jee (Lala Jee), Who always dwell in the heart of Shrimati Radha Rani Jee, had very benevolently accepted the Services of Shrila Shyamanand Prabhu, after His manifestation from the Lotus Heart of Shrimati Radha Rani Jee, on the Basant Panchami of the year 1578 A.D. Shrimati Radha Rani Jee had tied a knot Matrimony with Shri Shri Shyam Sundar Jee, on the Basant Panchami of the year 1580 A.D after Her self manifestation among the valuables in the Treasury of the then king of Bharatpur. After that, Gaudeeya Commentator, incognitable metaphysician and vedantee, Shrila Baldev Vidyabhushan Pada had enthroned the Big Shri Vigrahas of Shri Shri Radha Shyam Sunder Jee in the Temple on the Basant Panchami of the year 1719 A.D.
Basant Panchami is, therefore, a very auspicious and important day for Shri Shri Radha Shyam Sunder Temple and devotees.
To maintain permanently the memory of the above three glorious events in the history of the Bhakti Movement, a celestial Memorial Festival is being organised in the eternal Grove of Shri Shri Radha Shyam Sunder Temple as per programme.
