Patotsav 2017 - Churnabhishek

Akshaya Tritiya is the day of installation of Sri Sri Radha Madhav at Hare Krishna Mandir, Bhadaj. On this day Their Lordships were offered Churnabhisheka. 'Churna' means powder and 'Abhisheka' means ceremonial bath. Deities are anointed with special sandal powder and turmeric powder as the part of abhisheka ceremony, hence the name Churnabhisheka. This is the only day in the year when all the Deities of the temple together receive abhisheka.The most exciting part of the festival was ‘samprokshan’ (sprinkling of the sanctified water over the assembled devotees) was performed.
