Chandan-yatra 2009

Chandan Yatra of our Radha Gobindaji! Candana yatra starts on the third lunar day of the waxing moon of Vaisakha month, and continues for twenty days. Smearing the body of the Lord with ointments is an act of devotion, and the best of ointments is sandalwood paste. Since the month of Vaisakha is very hot in India, the cooling effect of the sandalwood is very pleasing to the body of the Lord.

Sandalwood paste is applied all over the body of leaving only his two eyes visible. Especially in Puri, the utsava murtis (functional Deities - Vijay utsav) are taken on procession and are placed in a boat in the temple pond. To commemorate this festival, Lord Caitanya also carried out water sports with his devotees.
