Special Live Kirtan for Pandava-Nirjal Ekadasi

11:17:00 PM By Vijay Teli

Pandava-Nirjal Ekadasi: Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020

Devout followers of the Hare Krishna tradition are used to the idea of enthusiastically celebrating their spirituality through chanting, dancing and feasting! The feasting is such an important part of our tradition, that we have become known as the "kitchen religion"!

Now every fortnight, we observe Ekadasi, a day of prayer and meditation. On this day we fast (or simplify our meals and abstain from grains and beans), and spend extra time reading the scriptures and chanting the auspicious Hare Krishna mantra.

Once a year, we honour Pandava-Nirjal Ekadasi wherein, on this auspicious day, devotees do a complete fast from all food, even from water! The purpose of this day is to spend more time in focusing on feeding our spiritual needs! On this auspicious day of Pandava-Nirajal Ekadasi we will be hosting a special live kirtan. Bhaktimarga Swami will be going live on Tuesday June 2nd accompanied by some of our resident devotees, join us at 6:00pm EST for live Kirtan and Darshan on our Facebook Page!
