Starting the day with nagar-sankirttan through the narrow streets of Govardhan town.

Right: Returning from parikrama to Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math to begin the day's main programme here.

Sripad Paramahamsa Maharaj is the first to bathe the Lord, followed by the other devotees and pilgrims.
After the abhishek, Sri Giriraj is dressed, garlanded...

...and offered incense.
Bhoga arati follows...

...and noon arati.

Sripad Paramahamsa Maharaj then distributes morsels of Maha Prasadam to the hands of devotees, followed by a feast served on the shaded verandah of the Srila Sridhar Swami Seva Ashram — the original ashram building at our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Govardhan.
