Sri Radha Vrindavan Chandra are adorned with fresh flower garlands every day. Five thousand years ago, Krishna was adorned with the flowers of Vrindavan by Mother Yashoda and to this day, the flowers that grow here have a special, divine fragrance. The floral decorations enhance the ambience for the Deities. Lord Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita, “If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I will accept it.”
We provide you the opportunity to please Krishna with your love and devotion by offering this seva.
The main meal of the day offered to Sri Radha Vrindavan Chandra is known as Rajbhog. A variety of food preparations including sweets, savouries and fresh fruit juices are served to the Deities every day. Devotees sing a special song called Bhoga aarti while the Lord relishes the feast. You can enjoy the bliss of feeding Lord Krishna by offering this seva and be blessed by Him.
Sri Radha Vrindavan Chandra are anointed with itra prepared from natural extracts of rose, jasmine, lavender, lotus, sandal and other substances. The practice of applying itra to Lord Krishna has been existing since the Vedic times. The sweet fragrances enliven the atmosphere and are extremely pleasing to the Deities.
Take this opportunity to offer itra for the pleasure of the Lord and receive His blessings.
Chandan or sandalwood is considered to be very sacred in our Indian culture. It is an important element of the puja paraphernalia in every ritual. It is said that Tulsi leaves mixed with sandalwood pulp and placed on the lotus feet of the Lord is the topmost worship. Following these scriptures, we smear chandan on Sri Radha Vrindavan Chandra to give them a cooling effect. When Krishna went to Mathura, Kubja, the hunchback maid of King Kamsa offered sandalwood pulp to Krishna. He immediately became pleased with her and blessed her. Offer your seva to soothe the transcendental bodies of Sri Radha Vrindavan Chandra and be blessed.
We offer aarti to Sri Radha Vrindavan Chandra six times a day beginning with Mangal aarti at 4.30 am.

On special occasions like Janmashtami, Radhashtami, Deepotsava and others, we offer elaborate aarti with different varieties of lamps. Perform this auspicious seva to the Lord and invoke His blessings.
Lord Krishna is known as ‘alankara priya’. Sri Radha Vrindavan Chandra are dressed in new jewellery and outfits on festive occasions. These are specially made by devotees in Vrindavan. The beautiful forms of the Deities look even more attractive when adorned in Nav Poshak and Aabhushan. Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir is known for these exquisite decorations. You can experience transcendental bliss of dressing the Lord by offering this seva.
