The 175th Sri Brahmotsava of Sri Rangji Mandir, Vrindavan, Mathura
       From 27th March 2024 Wednesday to 5th April 2024 Friday

We cordially invite you all to attend the most famous holy festival of North India and seek the blessings of Sri GodaRangamannar.
Brahmotsava means a festival offering by Brahmaji to Lord Vishnu.  This is the biggest festival celebrated in all Sri vaishnava temples. 
Only once in an year during Brahmotsava, Sri GodaRangamannar give darshan to devotees in the 60 feet wooden chariot. The 10 day program also includes their darshan in various other sawaris like Sri Garudji, Sri Hanumanji, Sri Seshji etc. 

As the legend goes, Lord Indra once killed a Brahma-raakshasa (a Brahmin with demoniac characteristics). In doing so, he incurred a great sin of killing a Brahmana- Brahma hatya dosham. To relieve Indra of this burden, Lord Brahma conducted a ceremony. In this ceremony, officiated by Brahma himself, Indra held Sriman Narayana ( Lord Vishnu) on his head during the special ritual bath “Avabritha Snaanam”. This verily was the first Brahmotsavam. Because of the immense cleansing power of Brahmotsavam, this utsavam is periodically performed


in Temples to wash away all wrong doings that may have been incurred. It is said that the Lord Brahma himself rendered the first Brahmotsavam seva (service) to Lord Venkateshwara (Vishnu) of the Tirumala shrine. Indeed, it is a common belief that every Brahmotsavam is witnessed by Lord Brahma. This grand festival is celebrated in different Vaishnava temples at different times of the year.Events leading to Brahmotsavam:1. Mritsangrahana (मृत्संग्रहण)- Collecting the soil for Brahmotsava Yagna(Hawan, Fire ceremony) Peetam. (Kindly note that Yagna is held every day in temple Yagnashala prior to morning and evening procession of Lord so that every thing passes off smoothly.2. Ankuraropan (अंकुरारोपण) - planting 9 grains in soil placed in earthen dishes3. Rakshabandhan (tying sacred thread to Utsava vigraha (उत्सव विग्रह) and priests.)4. Procession of Vishvaksenar (विश्वकसेन जी)  (Commander-in-chief of Vishnu’s army) to supervise arrangements made for Brahmotsavam.5. Vishvaksenar returns from procession and enters the Yaga Shaala (Place where Yagnam is conducted), where he is received with Poorna Kumbham honor(special Pot filled with water). He is believed to be the Pradhana Yajaman (Chief conductor) of this Yagnam.6. Dwajaarohanam (ध्वजारोहण)-Garuda Dwajam- a flag bearing the emblem of Garuda. The Eagle- Vehicle of Vishnu) is hoisted with Veda Mantrams from Taittiriya samhita dedicated to Garuda. This signals start of Brahmotsavam. Once the flag is hoisted, it is expected that no householder leaves town or plans any auspicious ceremony in the house until the conclusion of Brahmotsavam. Thus the whole town is able to fully take part in the celebration and not be preoccupied with other personal activities. Even if someone has to leave town on emergency, they are expected to return prior to un-hoisting the flag (Dwaja-awarohanam) (ध्वजा अवरोहण) on day 10.With this background in mind you can now have divya darshan of Lord GodaRangamannar during the 10 day Brahmotsavam starting from 10/03/23 as He comes out of the Shri Rangji temple precincts in a procession riding on different vahanas, both morning and evening amidst chanting of Veda mantras and Divya Prabandhams. The procession is lead by an elephant, followed by horse, Band, flags, nadaswaram, prabandha pathis (प्रबन्ध पाठ) and Veda mantras. Lord adorned with ornaments, garlands is accompanied with Chadi (छड़ी), chamar(चमर) and chatras (छत्र) in a royal procession- a sight to behold. Festivities begin with Lord riding the Punyakoti Vimana On day 1 and conclude on 9th day with Avabhrat Snana as mentioned before. 10th day the Divine couple give darshan to devotees riding on Pushpak Vimana. Live event and Photos will be shared on the Facebook Page       . You can send your contributions for Brahmotsavam here
