Shri Radhe Maa - Happy Gudhi Padwa

Happy Gudhi Padwa friends!

Did you know this about this great festival?

  • The Gudhi symbolizes the victory of Maratha forces under Chhatrapati Shivaji and the triumph of King Shalivahana to Paithan after he won a battle with the Sakas.
  • The Garud Puran tells us that Lord Brahma created the universe on Gudhi Padwa.
  • The Gudhi also symbolizes Shri Ramachandra’s return to Ayodhya after killing the demon Ravan. It marks the day Lord Ram was crowned king of Ayodhya after 14 years of exile.
May this Gudi Padwa bring you and your loved ones health, happiness and good fortune.
