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 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.
We will be posting Durban Festival of Chariots info almost everyday from next week, please check out our Facebook page, Twitter handle and website for constant updates.
