This is the appearance day of Lord Balarama, the elder brother of Lord Krishna. Lord Balarama is the first expansion of Lord Sri Krishna. He is the original spiritual master, and devotees offer special prayers to Lord Balarama on this day to receive spiritual strength from Him.
He showed up on the full moon day of shravana. The historical backdrop of His appearance is one of a kind. He was conceived as the seventh child of Devaki and Vasudeva.

The despot sibling of Devaki, Kamsa, had put Vasudeva and Devaki in jail. Vasudeva had left his wife Rohini, under the watchful eye of his dear companion, Maharaja Nanda.
The Krishna Balarama Deities at ISKCON Bangalore, got a magnificent abhisheka or washing service on this day. Ruler Balaram was offered a Rajbhog naivedya comprising of 52 exceptional things. All the divinities in the primary sanctuary were beautified with new pieces of clothing and gems.
