Celebrating the occassion, we had special lecture by HH Jayapataka swami, Balaram Salagram abhishek & arthi at noon and in the evening, the famous honey pot breaking ceremony and offering of Varuni drink to Lord Balarama. A short but a very sweet intimate festival of Sri Baladeva abhishek was held at Rajapur Jagannath Mandir.
The day being the last day of Jhulan yatra, we had colorful Jhulan festival with flower shower to Sri Sri Radha Madhava in the evening.
“We will specially pray on this day of Balarama Purnima, because Lord Balarama is the original spiritual master, the Adi Guru. So may He have special blessings and mercy on us, on this Balarama Purnima. So we are very happy to be observing the Balarama Purnima in Mayapur. And, as Nityananda Prabhu, He had many pastimes in Navadvipa. So, depending on the different pastimes of Krsna, He would take a role that was appropriate for the lila. So in Vrndavana when Krsna was doing go raksha, Balarama was doing krishi. In Mathura and Dwaraka, Krsna and Balarama were acting as Ksatriyas, so Lord Balarama He did those pastimes. Please pray that may Lord Balarama have His mercy on us. Hare Krsna”- HH Jayapataka Swami Balaram Purnima Special lecture, 03 Aug 2020.
