Program for Krishna Janmashtami

Today we managed to sit together with Swamiji to make the final program for Krishna Janmashtami.

Krishna was born 8 nights after the full moon in the Hindu month of Shravan (August-September). This year his birthday falls on the night of the 27th to the 28th of August.

Here now is the program which we worked out with Swamiji:
  • 27th August:  22:00 Prayers with Sri Swami Vishwananda in the temple, at midnight Abishek and Bhajans - End about 2:00 early morning. 
  • 28th August: 10:00 in the morning Yagna outside or inside the tent (depends of the weather) 
  • at about 15:00 Sri Swami Vishwananda will talk and explain about Krishna and will be reading from the Bhagavat Gita and Shrimad Bhagavatam
  • 19:00 some Krishna-Leela plays, bhajans, dancing and final Arati

We ask you all to come, dress like Gopis and come to dance with Krishna! It doesn't matter if you are old or young - man or woman - feel Him inside of you - and feel His unlimited joy and Love!

Just be happy with Him - it's all He wishes from you - nothing else!
