While staying in ISKCON Vrindavan, Rādhā-Mādhava are traditionally invited to attend a courtyard festival. To reach the location, They are being carried on a beautifully decorated palanquin. During the festival devotees sing and dance together for Their Lordships after which Dr. Fakir Mohan Dās would deliver a lecture about Rādhā-Mādhava. Last but not least, approximately 100 preparations are being offered to Rādhā-Mādhava and consequently served to the devotees present there.
