Vrindavan, 2018.05.13 (VT): Banke Bihari management is considering taking action against one of the temple Goswamis after he arranged a boat festival for Shri Banke Bihari ji without consent from the other Goswamis. The view of Bihari ji sitting in cool blue water made devotees crazy and many began to take photos of the amazing scene.
Photos of Banke Bihari are strictly forbidden, but, these days photos are being leaked on the internet. The photos of Bihariji’s boat festival went viral on social media, angering temple Goswamis.
AK Goswami is well known for his over-inventiveness and disregard of temple traditions. In 2015, he was fined 7.5 Lakh for allowing Akhilesh Yadav and a group of state government officials to be served prasadam inside the temple room.
AK Goswami is also the Goswami responsible for the famous “jeans lila” in which Banke Bihari was dressed in jeans and was holding a phone instead of a flute. AK Goswami said that this was another, “avatar” (incarnation) of the Lord.
The temple committee will meet to decide whether action will be taken against AK Goswami for arranging the non traditional festival without the permission of the other Goswamis.
