About Dahi Handi Festival

Dahi Handi is one such festival, which is eagerly awaited by all and is celebrated with lot of gusto and enthusiasm. This day commemorates the birth of Lord Krishna who is the eight incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Dahi Handi is a popular ceremony, celebrated with lot of enthusiasm and glee. Dahi Handi is an enactment of Lord Krishna's efforts to steal butter from Matka (earthen pot) suspended from the ceiling.Dahi Handi is usually held on the second day of Gokulashtami celebrations, and is very popular in Mumbai.

On this day a Handi (clay pot), filled with butter milk or curd, is positioned at a convenient height prior to the event above the ground and a group of men make a human pyramid to break the Handi with the help of a blunt object or coconut. The spilled butter milk or curd over the group symbolizes their achievement and unity.This group of young and enthusiast men call themselves Govinda.

Significance Of Dahi Handi

Dahi Handi is called 'Uriadi' in Tamil Nadu which forms a major event in the celebrations associated with Gokulashtami.Dahi Handi though portrays the playful and adoringly mischievous attitude of Krishna, it also carries a profound philosophy behind it. The pot is the ego or the sense of the body mind identification that dangles in the grasp of Samsara. The butter or Dahi which forms the content is embodied as the essence, or the being. The Lord breaks the pot or the ego to release the content from the binding Samsara. His eagerness to savour it reveals the bliss that one enjoys on realising the true essence or the true self.

It can also be taken as the Lord's instruction to break the body mind complex which is portrayed as the pot to attain true bliss on realizing the essence, the true self, portrayed as the contents of the pot.

However to break the illusion of the body mind complex is not an easy task as one will have to focus steadfastly on realising the essence or the ultimate with devotion. Distractions from around disturb one from attaining the truth, however one pointed focus and devotion to the Lord will ultimately lead one to the goal.Lets us hence celebrate Dahi Handi grasping the philosophy behind it and seek the Lord's blessings to realise our true self.
