Jhulan Yatra-The Swing Ceremony
Every year there is a five-day festival all over Vrndavana called Jhulana-yatra, at which time the Vijaya-viagra (small) deities of Sri Sri Radha and Krsna are swung by hundreds of thousands of Vrajavasis and others, in their various temples or homes, on a beautiful swing attached to long ropes.
