To Fulfill His Purposes He Employed His Internal Potency

Govardhana-puja also took place in this month. All the Vrajavasis worshiped Giriraja Govardhana and performed Annakuta Mahotsava. Seeing this, Indra became very angry, created torrential rain, and Krishna cut his pride. In this month, Indra came and worshiped Krishna after his pride was cut, all the demigods performed kirtana, and Krishna received the name Govinda.


Saradiya rasa-lila was also performed in this month. As stated in Srimad-Bhagavatam:

sri-badarayanir uvaca

bhagavan api ta ratrih


viksya rantum manas cakre

yoga-mayam upasritah

“Sri Badarayani said: Sri Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, full in all opulences, yet upon seeing those autumn nights scented with blossoming jasmine flowers, He turned His mind toward loving affairs. To fulfill His purposes He employed His internal potency.”

(Srimad-Bhagavatam 10.29.1)
