In response to the rapidly developing COVID-19 crisis in South Africa, for everyone’s safety and as directed by the co-GBCs and national leadership for ISKCON in South Africa, with heavy hearts we announce that from 9:15pm tonight (Sunday 22 March), the Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple will be CLOSED to the public and broader community of devotees. This closure period is indefinite and includes Govinda’s Restaurant and Radhanath’s Gifts.
For today, a maximum of 25 visitors will be permitted into the temple room only for 15 minutes before the next group will be allowed.
We have increased our live streaming service and encourage all of you to stay connected with Sri Sri Radha Radhanath’s mercy by connecting to the various daily live streaming programs. All broadcasts will be either on MayapurTV (Durban South Africa) or on Facebook (DurbanKrishna).
Service to the Deities will be adjusted to continue with just the resident pujaris and selected congregation-based pujaris. Please maintain your contributions for the service to the Deities; we are dependent on the Lord’s grace and your support. Deity viewing will be streamed throughout the day.
Please try to use this opportunity to go deeper in your spiritual practices. Much facility has been arranged for us by His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada in the form of his books, the holy names, online association, etc.
If you have concerns or questions, please message us on the SSRRT WhatsApp Hotline: 062 526 3606.
