Govardhana Puja Festival

We would like to invite you to the Govardhana Puja Festival that will be held at our temple on Sunday 11th November. Govardhana Puja is celebrated in the month of Kartika (October – November) to commemorate the pastime of Lord Sri Krishna lifting the Govardhana Hill to protect the residents of Vrindavana from the wrath of Indra. Devotees prepare varieties of foodstuffs with grain and ghee and all kinds of milk preparations. The food is stacked like a small hill and offered to the Lord. Devotees circumambulate the Govardhana Hill, then it is distributed to everyone as prasadam.

Free entry and free vegetarian meal at the end. Everyone is welcome. For more information, please see the attached poster
