Govardhana Puja

The story is told in the Srimad Bhagavatam of how eight-year-old Krishna challenged the long-held tradition in His village to worship Indra to get rain for crops. He asked them, What benefit is there in worshiping an angry god, because we are afraid of offending him? Instead, why not worship Govardhana Hill, because it supplies all of the needs of the cows and cowherd people of Vndavana. When the cow herders eventually agreed to this proposal and commenced worship of Govardhana Hill, Indra tried to destroy them with floods of rain, hail, lightning and thunder. Krishna devised a wondrous means to save them all, however, when He lifted the hill on the little finger of his left hand.

In New Dvaraka, this day is celebrated by the worship of a huge hill constructed in the temple and covered with many dozens of delightful food preparations, and at the top, a stone sila from Govardhana Hill Himself. Circumambulation of the hill, joyful kirtana and a delicious feast always follows.
