Significance of Phulera Dooj

The legend linked with Phulera Dooj is stated as follows- Once, because of a strict schedule, Lord Krishna could not meet goddess Radha for days. The distance made Radha and all the gopis very sad. The sadness of Radha threw a butter impact on the atmosphere too. The surroundings become dull and pale leading to the shedding of fruits and flowers. The day when the distance ended and Lord Krishna united with goddess Radha became Phulera Dooj. Lord Krishna, on this day, threw flowers on Radha Rani to celebrate their love and meet after the long wait. Goddess Radha also cherished the day by throwing flowers and greeting Krishna with love.
