Srila Prabhupada Vyasa Puja - Sunday, September 6, 2015

9:32:00 AM By RG

In the wake of celebrations for one of our biggest festivals of the year, Krsna Janmastami, we will be

celebrating one of the most important festivals for us as Hare Krishnas - Srila Prabhupada's Vyasa Puja starting at 11am on Sunday, September 6, 2015.

The Vyasa Puja festival is always held the day after Janmastami and the festival honours the appearance of our spiritual master His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada - Founder Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.

The program will begin at 11:00am with an abhisheka of Srila Prabhupada (bathing ceremony of a small Deity of Srila Prabhupada) and will continue with the arati, flower offerings (pushpanjali) and the reading of pre-written offerings from devotees in our community. It is encouraged for everyone to write their own offering by submitting it online (click here) or writing your offering on pre-printed pages available at the temple.

The schedule is as follows (subject to change):

11:00am - 11:45am: Abhisheka
11:45am - 12:00am: Offering
12:00pm - 12:30pm: Arati
12:30pm - 1:30pm: Reading of Offerings

 We hope to see everyone at this very important and sweet festival!
