The first full moon of the autumn season marks the celebration of
Krsna's dancing with the gopis.
On this day the deities of Vrndavana are nicely decorated in white.
Krsna lila dramas are enacted. Because the moon is very auspicious,
the vraja vasis leave pots of sweet rice exposed to the full moon
for the whole night, to turn the sweet rice into ambrosial amrta.
