The temple tradition of Sa˝jhi in Vrndavana describes the transformation of a folk tradition. Sa˝jhi was originally a ritual worship undertaken by unmarried girls throughout northern India to obtain a suitable husband. It became a temple tradition in the seventeenth century when the devotional bhakti movement linked it to the games played by Radha and K???a as children in Vraja, the cowherd camp where God was pleased to reside as Sri Krsna a in the previous era. The devotional verses of the next two centuries describe these games and evoke Sa˝jhi as a ritual design made with forest flowers in the autumn, after the rains. Thus, Radha, Krsna's ahladini sakti or joygoing potency, who is also prak?ti (nature), is engaged in her own beautification.Printed Pages: 63.
