Ras Lila 2011 date

Ras Lila 2011

Ras Lila 2011 date is 25 November. Krishna observing the clear sky bright with the autumnal moon, felt inclined to join with the Gopis in sport. Accordingly he commenced singing sweet strains such as the women loved; so they, as soon as they heard the melody, quitted their homes, and hastened to meet Krishna. Then Madhava, coming amongst them, conciliated some with soft speeches, some with gentle looks, and some he took by the hand; and the illustrious deity sported with them in the stations of the dance. Then proceeded the dance to the music of their clashing bracelets. At times, one of the nymphs, wearied by the revolving dance, threw her arms, ornamented with tinkling bracelets, round the neck of the destroyer of Madha; another skilled in the art of singing his praises, embraced him. When leading, they followed him; when returning they encountered him; and, whether he went forwards or backwards they ever attended on his steps. Whilst frolicking thus with the Gopis, they considered every instant without him a myriad of years ; and, prohibited in vain by husbands, fathers, brothers, they went forth at night to sport with Krishna, the object of their affection, t

In North India men and women holding each other's hands, go round in a circle, singing the airs to which they dance, in imitation of Krishna and the Gopis.

The following account is given of its celebration in Bengal under the name of Ras Jatra:

This festival is held during three nights, to celebrate the revels of Krishna with the milkmaids. The image of this god is placed in a brick building, which, is open on all sides, and has one highly elevated sitting-place. This building is annually ornamented and grandly illuminated for the festival. Sixteen small images of Krishna are necessary on this occasion; but a very small gold image, about the size of a pin, is placed as the object of adoration, and afterwards given to the officiating Brahman. At the close of the festival the clay images are thrown into the river.

Bound the building in the street, booths are erected, filled with sweetmeats, playthings, and other articles. Numbers of persons of all ages visit the spot; and as usual at all festivals kept in honour of this impure god, most licentious songs are sung and indecent dances take place.
