Dear Devotees & Friends

Please accept our obeisances and best wishes from the Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

We would like to extend our prayers to Lord Nrsimhadeva to all those who have already returned to work and those who will be going back to work soon. We pray that you took advantage of arming yourself by hearing and chanting the glories of Sri Krishna during the lockdown.

As Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita, we need to perform our duty and work. We can do this by changing our consciousness, by thinking that we are not working to enjoy the fruits of that work but rather doing it as a service to Krishna and offering the fruits of our work to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

In this way we no longer work but perform devotional service, which is always auspicious and it is even more auspicious if we share the knowledge of the Bhagavad Gita with colleagues. Remember that wherever there is Krishna and Arjuna there will always be victory.

The online classes will continue and the blessings of the Deities through the daily darshan pictures will continue to be shared on WhatsApp and the temple’s other social media channels.

You may also contact us via WhatsApp 062 526 3606 or email temple@iskcondurban.net if you need any spiritual support.

Please be safe and remember Krishna.

Your servant on behalf of the SSRR Temple,

Vibhu Caitanya Das
