Vyanjan Dwadashi 2016 date - Dedicated to Sri Krishna



Vyanjan Dwadashi is observed on the 12th day of the Shukla Paksha or waxing phase of moon in Margashirsh month. Vyanjan Dwadasi 2016 Date is December 11. Numerous vegetarian food items including rice, sweets, curry and kheer are offered Sri Krishna and Radha on the Vyanjan Dwadasi day.

As per tradition, Vaishnavites commemorate the episode of the Mahabharata in which mother Yashoda feeds Sri Krishna with a wide variety of mouth-watering delicacies on Dwadasi in the month of Margasira. This scene was also re-enacted during the childhood of Sri Chaitanya Maharaj when he was too presented with a large number of delicacies by his mother Sachi Devi.

The followers of Sri Chaitanya Maharaj observe this day every year with great pomp, enthusiasm and religious fervor.
