PICNIC-Junior English Essays-School Essays Collection

PICNIC

My father was posted in Dehradun. We decided to go to Hrishikesh on a picnic. My mother cooked some sweets which could be preserved for many days. 

We started off at 5 a.m. in our car. We reached Hrishikesh by 7 a.m. We went to the Madhuban ashram as my father is devotee of Lord Krishna. We had the darshan of Sri Sri dha Govindji, Gaur Nitai and Jagannath, ladev and Subhadra. Also we had the darshan of Sri Sita Ram, Laxman and Hanumanji. 

We met His Holiness Bhaktiyog Maharaj. He advised on to chant the holy names 'Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Ham Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare'. 

After that we took our breakfast in the ashram. Then we net off to take a bath in the Ganga. I was very happy with the serene atmosphere. I could see the Himalayas on all sides. We could see Himalayas in Dehradun too but in Hrishikesh the scene was soothing. We felt relaxed. 

After taking bath in the Ganga for a long time we again felt hungry. We went back to Madhuban Ashram. There we attended the Raj Bhog Arad. Then we had the Raj Bhog Prasadam for our lunch. It was very tasty. We again met His Holiness Bhaktiyog Maharaj. He spoke on the Bhagavad Gita. Then we took leave from him. We also purchased some books. 

We started our return journey at 3 p.m. On the way we ate the sweets my mother h brought. We reached our home at 5 p.m. It was great picnic.
