September 2008 Calendar

A)Since Lord Krishna Janmashtmi was on 24th August His Divine consort's appearance day, Shri Radhashtmi

cannot be far away. It is on Monday, 8th September ...Shri Vrashbhanupur. But since Shri Radhaji's abhishek (ceremonial bathing of an idol) will be in the morning at 4 am, devotees must reach Barsana on Sunday, 7th Sept for the divine darshan of Kishoriji.

The 8th of Sept is also the birth anniversary of Swami Shivianandji Maharaj the founder of Rishikesh's Divine Life Society. We make obeisance to his holy feet for wisdom and bhakti.

Other important dates in this month are Varaha Jayanti or Lord Vishnu’s incarnation as a boar on the 1st of September

B) WED, the 3rd September is Shri Ganesh Chaturthi

Amongst Hindu Gods, Lord Ganesha enjoys a unique position. He is to be worshipped and revered first so that all rituals and worships are fruitful. This is the boon given to Lord Ganesha by the Supreme Lord so let us make obeisance at His holy feet for success, wealth and wisdom. His blessings are exceptional as money without discretion inevitably leads to disaster but Lord Ganesha makes wealth delightful.

C) FRIDAY the 5th of Sept is Lalita chhath

Sri Lalitaji appearance day. The ashtasakhis or eight primary gopis are named Lalita, Vishakha, Chitra, Indulekha, Champakalata, Tungavidya, Rangadevi and Sudevi. Lalitaji's birthday is celebrated just 10 days after Lord Krishna Janmashtami in UNCHAGAON which is about 5 kms from Barsana. Most revered Saint Ushaji went regularly every year to pay her tributes at the holy feet of divine Lalitaji

D) SUNDAY the 14th of Sept is the most pious Anant-Chaudas.
Monthly Sri Hari Kirtan as initiated by most revered Manohar Baba is at Khare Saheb's home.

Holy oblations or Shradhs begin and end with Amavasya shradh on 29th -- let us humbly bow to all our Pitars or forefathers.

D) TUESDAY the 30th of Sept
