Significance of Phulera Dooj

Ceremonies like marriages, naming ceremony of a child and other rituals are organised on Phulera Dooj. In North India, marriage ceremonies are performed on the eve of Phulera Dooj. It is believed that auspicious work, especially marriage ceremonies do not need any special muhurat on Phulera Dooj since it is considered as "Aboojh Muhurat" for marriage. As per the celestial and planetary predictions, the festival is regarded as one of the most auspicious day, since it is not affected by any malefic effects and doshas. However, this point of view is debatable among astrologers. The day is considered prosperous to commence a business and start a new phase of life.

Story of Phulera Dooj

Story of Phulera Dooj

Legend states that Lord Krishna was busy with his universal work for a long time. So, he was not able to meet Radha Rani. Since Radha rani was unhappy, there was an adverse effect on nature. So, Lord Krishna went to meet her. The gopis were also pleased and there was greenery all around. Lord Krishna plucked a flower and threw it on Radharani. Radha threw flowers on Krishna and the gopis did the same. The event occurred on the second day of Shukla Paksha of Falguna. Since the Phulera Dooj is being celebrated across the country.

Phulera Dooj celebrations

Devotees worship Lord Krishna and seek His blessings to attract prosperity and happiness. The idol of Lord Krishna is adorned in a white garba and seated under a colourful mandap with floral decoration. A ritual of playing Holi with flowers with the Lord is also performed. A piece of cloth is wrapped in gulaal and tied on the waist of the Lord. The gulaal is removed at night after Shayan Bhog. Special bhog is offered to Lord Krishna, which includes poha and other savouries. It is distributed as ‘prasad’ among the devotees. Prime rituals like sandhya aarti and Samaj mein rasiya are performed. Devotees spend the day singing ‘bhajans’ in praise of Lord Krishna. At the end of the event, the pundits in the temple sprinkle gulaal on the devotees.

Phulera Dooj functionThe main function is held at Thakur Radha Vallabh Lal at Vrindavan. The day is considered to strengthen romantic relationships. It is recommended to offer yellow flowers and yellow clothes to Lord Krishna and Radha since yellow colour is Lord Vishnu’s favourite colour. Laddus made of flour or makhan mishri are offered to Lord Krishna. For any problems in married life or delays in getting married, couples should worship Lord Krishna and Radha. It is a known fact that Lord Krishna loves cows and peacocks. So, on Phulera Dooj, you can feed or serve a cow or a peacock to earn the blessings of Lord Krishna. A couple opting for love marriage should worship Lord Krishna and Radha on the occasion of Phulera Dooj, by writing the name of their better half on a paper and placing it on their feet to attract a happy married life. On this day, thousands of devotees visit Banke Bihari temple at Vrindavan.

    Dear Kantiji, I made the head mala with 1 Mukhi in the center and placed the nine, 9 mukhi beads in two pairs on each side of the head with the ninth 9 mukhi at the rear of the mala. I, however felt that I wanted to have the 1 Mukhi Rudraksha with me all the time so it became part of a mala containing 1 through 14 Mukhi including a newly acquired 9 mukhi I asked Ms. Neeta for, plus Ganesha Bead and GauriShankar totaling 28 Rudraksha in total. I tried wearing the nine 9 mukhi as a braclet but found that my activities placed them in harm's way. I was afraid that I would inadvertently hit them on close

  • The most happy news for us

    Dear All, Good Day. I first purchased a Akarshaya Siddha Mala from RC. Immediately after that I was given the additional responsibility of photographing all my company�s activity. For short it can be called as I became the official photographer of my company. After that I got my bank loan to clear off all my financial issues. I did that. Along with that I went for an Indra Mala. This time after much delay from my side I got the mala which was reserved to me by Neetaji (which was energized on the 9 days of navratri). I started wearing both malas and my spiritual levels are increasing very muc close
