ISKCON Bangalore is providing free lunch prasadam for hundreds of pilgrims visiting the temple. The prasadam is served between 11:30 am and 2:00 pm every day. This initiative has been taken following in the footsteps of Srila Prabhupada, the Founder-Acharya of ISKCON who introduced prasadam distribution as one of the key programs of ISKCON temples all over the world. Distribution of food offered to the Lord has a great spiritual significance and is glorified in various scriptures.
At present, the temple’s Annakuta restaurant which is closed otherwise in the afternoon is the venue for this program. The seating capacity of the Annakuta hall is about 300 which is inadequate for serving meals to the ever-growing number of visitors. It is proposed to build a new Annadana hall above the Open Air Theater with a much larger capacity to cater to thousands of pilgrims every day. Many devotees visit the temple during the day from outside Bengaluru city. This free lunch prasadam is a facility that is especially appreciated by these pilgrims.
