Devasthanas/ Dharmasthanas/ temples have been large players in the eco system of our society, be it environmental, financial, material, educational, health or cultural. Gudiya Sambhrama is a step towards rejuvenating and reviving this temple eco-system.
The festival brings artists and scholars of repute from across India to heritage temples to share their knowledge and performances of Hari Katha, dance, music, theatre, puppetry, fabulous legends and more creating health and well-being, touching the lives of a cross section of society.
GUDIYA SAMBHRAMA… the Temple festival in 2018 comes to you in a new format dedicated to the Shrimad Bhaagavatam.
The Shrimad Bhaagavatam, a purana, written by Veda Vyasa unfolds through the words of Sri Suka, to King Parikshit.
The central character is Krishna who symbolized Bhakti for the benefit of humanity.
There are fascinating stories about many Avataras of the Supreme Being. The text highlights bhakti, jnana, vairagya, dharma, and karma, the four human pursuits (dharma, artha, kama, moksha), Yoga, Sankhya and Advaita tattva.
It is filled with descriptions of the landscape, rivers, flora, fauna, and the life of the times. The Bhaagavatam also details the development and journey of ferus in the womb, alluding to the scientific temper of our forefathers.
