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
