Final Week Ahead for 2022

Dear Friends

As 2022 draws to a close and we enter the holiday, we invite you to take this time of R&R to reflect on your past year and what you would like to invest in the coming year. Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple is open to you, so please take full advantage of the Love Feasts, special events, morning program, various services, and Vaishnava association.

In the new year, we will welcome His Grace Kshudi Das (ACBSP), a pioneer in ISKCON South Africa. He has a wealth of ISKCON history in South Africa. We will also welcome Her Grace Aruddha Devi Dasi, author of the Srimad Bhagavatam Comprehensive Guide for Young Readers. She will offer a one-day course: The Art of Krishna Conscious Parenting on Saturday 21 January 2023. Parents and those involved in children’s education will significantly benefit from this course. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to offer quality of spiritual education to their children.

Bhakti Theatre

Temple Amphitheatre
As the year draws to a close, some paths come to an end. Which paths those are — we decide. Turning left or right based on the power of the mind isn’t always what would set our soul alight. But…if offered the chance, would you consider a different path? One that started at the end and allowed for no pretense? Dare you choose a path with no familiar face, but…one that would lead you to a place only accessible by faith. Come watch the riveting drama: Dharma – A Journey of Three Steps. Filled with suspense, trickery, politics, sabotage, honour, promises, faith, and trust, this drama includes shadow theatre, dance, and martial arts. Written and directed by Gaura Bhumi Dasi. Tickets are on sale at Radhanath’s Gifts from Friday 16 December. A minimum donation of R50 per ticket.

Prabhupada Marathon 2022
