Sharad Poonam – Saturday 15th October /

The full moon before Diwali is referred to as Sharad Poonam. It is said that the full moon on this particular night is brighter and clearer than usual.

On the night of Sharad Poonam, Lord Krishna performed Maha Raas by the banks of the river Yamuna. When they heard the glorious music of Lord Krishna’s flute, the Gopis of Vrindavan sneaked away from their homes to the forest to play raas with Lord Krishna, who created several forms of Himself to accompany each Gopi.

Sharad Poonam is also the night Lord Swaminarayan performed the raas leela in Panchaala. He took many forms to accompany each devotee and fulfilled His promise of bringing them all divine happiness.

Join us in celebrating Sharad Poonam with a night of raas garba on Saturday 15th October from 8pm to 10pm!
