Hanuman Jayanti Festivals

admin : 15 April, 2014 9:58 am : Uncategorized

Week Ahead

Dear Friends,

Today is the auspicious celebration of the Lord’s most celebrated servant, Sri Hanuman. In honour of Hanuman, we are hosting festivals this evening, 15 April each starting at 7pm. You are warmly invited to a festival at one the following ISKCON centres:

Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple with His Holiness Bhakti Ashraya Vaishnava Swami
New Jagannath Puri Temple with His Holiness Partha Sarathi Das Goswami.
ISKCON Pietermaritzburg with His Holiness Kadamba Kanana Swami. (Kadamba Kanana Swami will also be giving a talk at New Jagannath Puri Temple on Wednesday, 16 April at 7pm.)

Sri Hanuman set the perfect example of a selfless servant. Whatever obstacle he faced he turned to the service and took shelter of Lord Rama. Two devotees in our community, Kedarnath Prabhu and Kamala Manjari Mataji, recently endured the tragedy of losing their 24 year old son in a car accident. Following the example of Hanuman, they are taking shelter of Lord Jagannath and you will see them fully engaged in decorating various tents in preparation for the Durban Festival of Chariots. Such contemporary examples are most inspiring and should encourage us all to give as much effort as is possible in organizing the Festival of Chariots.

We will be sharing more Durban Festival of Chariots news in the next day or two, including the full schedule of events. Please invite as many friends and family to the festival.

As always, we look forward to seeing you and hope this finds you in the best spirits,

Your friends at Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple

Week Ahead

Dear Friends,

The temple is a hive of activity with the Durban Festival of Chariots just one week away. Many of you have contacted us about festival details and to offer service. For further updates and information, please contact Merumala Dasi on 0836760844.

This week we feature the Take Care of Krishna Tent and the Bhakti Cloud Tent:

Take Care of Krishna

This year the Take Care of Krishna Tent offers not only an opportunity for you to book/update/confirm your Take Care of Krishna day, but also secure various precious memorabilia and maha (sacred remnants) from our Deities. The TCK team have compiled a slide show of a behind the scenes glimpse of how our Lordships Sri Sri Radha Radhanath, Sri Giriraj Govardhan and Lord Caitanya are worshipped, dressed, meals prepared and garland making - basically how the Lord allows us to take care of Him in a day. We already have over 200 booking for this year. So, come by early and take advantage of our booking facility. Everyone who books on-site will receive a special gift. Memorabilia on hand include magnets, buttons, key rings and a variety of photographs and also maha jewellery and pieces of maha cloth. Add to your collection of Deity paraphernalia by purchasing the much desired limited maha tiles which covered the Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple altar for over two decades.

Also, situated in the on-site Jagannath Mandir will be housed a Take Care of Jagannath presentation that will allow everyone the opportunity to engage in the special service of serving the Jagannath Deities in our Phoenix temple.

Bhakti Cloud

Bhakti Cloud is dedicated to our youth. Come in for Dance Master with Bhaktimarg Swami; Poetry Slam on freedom, truth, beauty and love; Drum Beats; Vraj & Friends (rated No. 2 in South African rock and just returned from a tour in Europe); Hinds Brothers; Hip Hop; Drama, and so much more.

Rama Naumi Darshan

admin : 8 April, 2014 9:44 am : Uncategorized
The Altar is a recreation of the hut Rama and Laksman constructed when they lived in the forest. You can see the deer that Sita Devi asked Lord Rama to capture for her and the circle of “fire” Laksman invoked when Sita commanded him to go in search of Rama. Ravana, disguised as a brahmana, is waiting on the side to kidnap Sita Devi. You can also see Lord Rama’s Varana army dotted along the temple room. Devotees worked tirelessly for 2 weeks making the Varanas, deer, Ravana and the straw hut.
