Vrindavan, 2017.07.22 (VT): Fateh Krishna Swami’s annual Raas Lila festival at Jai Singh Ghera is one of the definitve elements of the monsoon in Vrindavan.
The Raas Lila festival corresponds with the famous Hindol Utsav or Jhulan Yatra (swing festival), during which Shri Radha and Krishna enjoy the cool and playful atmosphere of a green and thriving, rain-filled Vrindavan while playing on a swing.
Raas Lila troupes will be performing throughout Vrindavan, but the sheer expertise of Fateh Krishna Swami’s troupe gives it a unique attraction.
The Raas Lila begins on Hariyali Amavasya (Sunday, July 23rd) and ends on Jhulan Purnima (Monday, August 7th). Gaur Lila will be featured in the mornings at 9am, while Braj Lila starts every evening around 6pm.
