One month long Dhanurmasam celebrations concluded with Sri Goda Ranganattha Kalyanam in various places.
Under the divine auspices and presence of HH Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji JET USA – California conducted the Kalyana Mahotsavam of Goda Devi (Lakshmi incarnate) and Lord Ranganatha (Lord Krishna) on Jan 14th 2017 @ 9:00AM Royal Palace Banquet Hall 6058 Stevenson Blvd, Fremont CA 94538.
The event was well attended by the devotees. HH Sri Swamiji explained the significance of why we do Kalyanam of the Lord every year. Lord ties mangalasutras to Mother to signify that She belongs to Him. The mangalasuthras when tied by the groom symbolize the belongingness of the bride to the groom. Mother represents all the jivas, i.e us. We, jivas belong to the Supreme Lord. He is our Swami. We have to dedicate ourselves to the Supreme Lord. Hence, the kalyanam serves as a reminder to all of us – reminding us the purpose of our lives and surrender ourselves to the Almighty Supreme Lord.
The kalyanam was conducted in the evening. Lord and Goda devi adorned the decorated thrones. The whole atmosphere was filled with devotional fervor. After the kalyanam, devotees enjoyed the mahaprasadam
