Flowers have multiple uses. They’re gifted to please a loved one, used to honour dignitaries, used during wedding ceremonies and many other purposes. Flowers are symbolic of offering respect, love, gratitude. Who is the most qualified to receive all the respect, all the love and all the gratitude? The answer to all these question is THE SUPREME PERSONALITY OF GODHEAD, SRI KRSNA.
The Flower Festival (Pushya Abhishek) is the first festival of the year. Most festivals celebrated in the temple involve the Abhishek of the utsava murtis (small brass Deities); but on this special festival, the mula vigrahas or the main Deities of Sri Sri Radha Shyam Sundar are showered with one ton (1008 kgs) of colorful flower petals. The first and the best flowers, which are nature’s offering to Sri Krsna, are plucked during the spring season to offer them to Him. There are approximately a thousand kilos of various flowers brought to Sri Sri Radha Shyam Sundar Temple which include the most fragrant roses, jasmine..etc. Every year, devotees sit in the temple hall plucking the petals to organise a flower abhishek for the pleasure of Sri Sri Radha Shyam Sundar while listening to kirtans and Lectures.
