Krushna’s Butter Pot
Sep 7th, 2015 – Jai Srimannarayana…!
Lord Krushna and His gopa friends spent a good amount of their free time by breaking pots and stealing butter in different houses in Nanda Gokulam. Gopis used to hang them high, hidden from view and hard to reach places. But, the mischievous boys were always successful in locating them and used different ideas to steal the butter without getting caught.
Traditionally, as part of this festival this favorite pastime of Lord Krushna is celebrated by breaking butter pots and is called Vuttlo:tsavam. Following this tradition, today Vuttlothsavam was celebrated with great fervor in JIVA. Film actor Sriman Rajendra Prasad, President of Movie Artist Association attended the occasion and felt very happy to be part of the event.
