11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Maha Shivratri (महाशिव रात्रि) will be celebrated outside at the Gopeshwar Mahadev Mandir at Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat, Barsana Dham. The celebration will include bhajans in praise of Lord Shiv and a spiritual discourse. Then we will have a barat jhanki and procession to the Gopeshwar Mahadev Mandir which will include a dance in front of the mandir. During more chanting, everyone is welcomed to do puja at the shrine. Puja includes offering milk, water, fruit, incense and flowers to Lord Shiv, circling the lingam, and ringing the bell. We conclude with blowing of the conches and a rousing arti to Lord Shiv whose one vision of baby Krishn led him to dance in ecstasy for hours and hours and hours. Lunch prasad is will then be served.
