Jhulan Yatra and Balarama Jayanti
Time & Location
About The Event
Jhulan Yatra honours a pastime of Lord Krishna and Srimati Radharani’s eternal love. This sweet pastime is of Them swinging on a beautifully decorated swing during the rainy season in Vrindavana.
Lord Balarama is an eternal companion and energy of Lord Krishna appearing as His elder brother one year before Krishna’s appearance in this world. While Krishna's complexion is like a dark bluish cloud, Balarama's complexion is like a white autumn cloud. He assisted Lord Krishna in His earthly pastimes of protecting the devotees and ridding the world of the misguided. Whilst Krishna is known for carrying a flute whose beautiful sound enchants His devotees, Balarama holds a plough in His hand that represents His strength.
