Radhastami Celebrations This Sunday!

12:45:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , No comments

The Hare Krishna temple warmly invites you and your family to join us this Sunday, September 7th for Radhastami celebrations - celebrating the appearance of Srimati Radharani! Festivities will commence at 6:00pm and will include wonderful kirtan, bhajans, a discourse about Srimati Radharani and yummy prasadam. As an annual tradition, the highlight of the evening will be when we open gifts for Srimati Radharani that have been brought by the assembled devotees.

If you and your family feel inclined, you are welcome to bring a gift for Their Lordships. Some humble suggestions from our beloved pujari department for gifts for the Deities include jewelry, hair ornaments, tiaras, necklaces, rings, bracelets, kitchen items and incense. Gifts can be placed on the altar and will be unwrapped and shown to the Deities during the program. Of course donations of any kind are always warmly accepted!
