As the first rays of morning light spread across the sky, Shri Radharaman (Shriji) awakens. Soon, eager devotees swarm into the temple, to quench their thirst for the nectar of his beauty at the auspicious time of Mangla Aarti. Shriji’s attendant Goswami waves the lamp in graceful rings, binding the divine Youth with the protection of his love, and dispelling any negative energy that might bring him harm.
“O Shri Radharaman! You and Shri Bhatt Gopal are bliss personified. Everything that is eternal is becoming visibly auspicious with your darshan during this blessed time of Mangla Aarti, which is beyond compare. A night filled with romantic pastimes has come to an end. Shri Vrindavan Dham is auspicious too and her trees and vines are enticing the heart. The cooling, fragrant breeze is blowing very gently and the bliss has already spread across all the kunjs and forests. Shri Gunmanjariji sings an auspicious song to praise Shri Priya-Lalju's virtues and as she absorbs their darshan, she experiences supreme bliss!”
