The stated objective of the Sri Sri Radha Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah (in the outlying district of SLC) is to bring people to Krishna Consciousness and membership in His devotional family, develop them to spiritual maturity, and equip them for their service in the temple and life mission in the world, in order to magnify Krishna’s Holy Name. People from all over the state came together on the weekend to celebrate Holi, one of many festivals celebrated on the temple grounds. In the Hindu religion, Holi (festival of color) is a celebration of good over evil.
Here’re a few choice photos of our own assortment of
ragamuffins celebrants. In front of a backdrop of cavorters there’s grandson Thomas, middle left to right his friends Reuben and Jonathan, and bringing up the rear is granddaughter Vimala (r) with her friend Abby.

Does every culture have a sort of let your hair down day for its members? If not, don’t you think it would be mentally helpful if they did?
That night Thomas had to take two showers, and still went to bed with color in his hair and ears. If you took the couple of minutes to watch the video above you’ll understand perfectly! Perhaps we’ll see you there next year?
