Jai Shri Krishna,

Jagdishbhai, excellent topic and the right time.

This Lila is of Barsana and lasts for 15 days Bado Sudi Punima. Shri Thakurji plays in roop of Sakhi as without Yugal swaroop Sanji cannot be performed hence Shri Swaminiji needs to play with Thakurji.

In Saanji Tika, Kajar, Kesar,Kumkum, Gulal, Abir, Chova Chandan, Haldi and plenty of Flowers are needed to do Puja of AshtDevi (8 Devis) and each is prayed for 2 days Main Devi is Shri Yamunaji. and this Saanji ko Bhav Gopniya hai. ( Totally secret) Aarti is done in Thari. On 14th day big Aarti is done and on 15th day it is mixed into Shri Yamunaji.

Saanji is pujan of "Sandhya Devi"

Found one more interesting article where Saanji was performed at Chiksouli. On the backside of Barsana village, near Krshna Kund there is a village of Chitralekha sakhi. It is said that at that time Shri Radhaji's painting school was also there. So the village is called Chiksouli. Here, saanjhi is done in a very beautiful way. Here, Shri Krshna used to graze cows with his friends. Once, he had stolen peas from one of the fields of a cowgirl.

One can also read this beautiful article and see the designs at

Will definitely add some kirtans soon

Jai jai shri gokulesh,

Sanji are symbolic pictures of Vraj and Krushna lila . Made from various materials, are very artistically arranged to represent the places where Krushna conducted some of his most exciting lilas in Vraj.

Prior to Navratri, the dark fortnight of Bhadra is used by the vaishnavs of Pushti Marg, to perform a virtual Vraj Yatra. Much is made of yatra in our scriptures, but not all of us are able to perform the pilgrimages we would want to. The vacant period of Bhadra, when no other religious activities may be carried out, was used as an ideal period to do the virtual Vraj Yatra ! This period is also known as Pitrupaksha. We remember our ancestors during this period.

There are several legends attached to why sanjis are created during this period.

1) At one time, Shri Radhaji was told that if she performed the puja of Sandhya devi (the goddess of the evening) with flowers, she was sure to get a wonderful husband. Hoping to wed the handsome son of Nandarai, Shri Radha made all the preparation for the puja. Shri Krushna, hearing the manner of the puja, decided to help. The only problem was, only women were allowed to participate !

Ever resourceful, Krushna dressed up as a woman (SHYAMA SAKHI) and entered the palace of Shri Radhaji with basket of flowers to help with the puja. All the sakhies were rather surprised by the skill and artistic talents of the new lady in their midst. After the designs were made, the sakhis offered consecrated food to the sanjis and performed arti. After the evening puja, it was rather late to go home, and thus Krushna managed to stay the night with his beloved sakhies !!

There is a famous kirtan on this.....
ARI TUM KON HO RI BAN MAI FULWA BIRAN AAYI.....

If you are blessed with the kripa of vallabh and swamniji then you can do darshan of shyama sakhi.

2) At one time a daughter of a divine being performed intense tapa to attain the Lord Vishnu as her husband. The Lord, pleased by her devotion, he placed her as the star Arundhati in the heavens. The Lord blessed the star and said, “Those who worship you in the dark fortnight of the pitrus, will get an excellent husband.”

Over the years, sanjis have evolved and are now made of various materials, including flowers, dry / fresh fruits, coloured powders, plantain leaves – cut into various shapes, dry pulses, rice etc. Bhog and arti are offered to the sanji.

At Nathadwara, the sanjis are made from leaves of the plantains and cut into various shapes. Placed in the Kamal chok after the sandya arti. There are set designs created on each days of the sanji. Here is a list of shapes that are usually made on the following days.
