274 : Goverdhana Puja – 7 days & 7 nights?

I am just wondering – instead of one day, why can’t we hold the Goverdhan Puja Festival for 7 days and 7 nights, the duration Lord Krishna held the Holy Goverdhan Hill for?

We can all do it together.

We can all do it together.

It can be done because Jhulan-yatra goes for more than 1 day. We could have pastime narrations, ceremonies, feasts, theatre etc for a good week. A group of grihastas and/or employed singles can sponsor each night’s program. We could actually make a small replica of Goverdhana Hill with Lord Krishna and His group underneath it. The setup would be lifted on Day 1 and we bring it down on Night 7, amidst our loud cheering and ecstasy.

What do you all think?
