Week Ahead 30 April – 6 May 2020

To all of Sri Sri Radha Radhanath’s dedicated followers,

South Africa is still navigating uncertain times, and despite a slight easing in restrictions that will come into effect on 1 May, Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple will remained closed a little while longer. This includes Govinda’s Restaurant & Takeaway and Radhanath’s Gifts. Srila Prabhupada wanted us to always comply with the law of the land.

During this lockdown period, it has been great to see so many of you actively engaging in hearing and chanting by joining the online classes and japa available through our social media platforms. A big thank you to our senior devotees and tech team who are bringing sanga from our home to yours. Stay connected as we deliver more variety to your spiritual routines online. Please visit our social pages daily to see any updates and events that you may be interested in.

What’s New?
ZOOM into Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple

Devotees and worshipers are the heart of the temple, and the resident devotees miss your association. In an effort to create interactive sanga, we will be launching ZOOM sessions for the various departments: nama-hattas, Kirtanuity, Women’s Forum, and others.

Handling of Goods
The temple residents have been strictly following the regulations advised by the World Health Organization. All goods procured and donated go through a sanitization process. In an effort to maintain the highest safety standards, the temple will no longer be accepting any flowers or cooked food.

If you are an essential worker or returning to work, we urge to be safe. Know that we are praying for your safety. For those of us who are still at home, please only go out for absolutely essential things and let us dive deeper into the ocean of transcendental bliss by chanting Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare in a humble and attentive state.

We miss you and can’t wait to welcome you back to the Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple when we get the green light from the government.

Your servant
