Celebrations at ISKCON Bangalore

Sri Krishna Janmashtami in ISKCON Bangalore is celebrated with great fervour and enthusiasm.

The preparations begin many months before the festival. The temple is decorated with colourful flowers and festoons to give a vibrant festive appearance.

Sevas offered to the Lord:

There will be various sevas offered to Their Lordships. There will also be a special offering of delicacies to their Lordships. There are many opportunities available on this most auspicious day to take part in the grand celebration throughout the day.

You can experience spiritual bliss through cultural programs, divine darshan, special sevas, melodious kirtans and delicious prasadam.

Abhishekam of Their Lordships:

The utsavar Deities of Sri Krishna along with His consorts are anointed with fragrant oils and given ceremonial Abhishekam with auspicious items like milk, yoghurt, ghee, honey, sweet water and fresh juices. They are then smeared with turmeric paste and bathed in Ganges water. Varieties of flowers are showered until the Deities are submerged in a soft bed of flowers.

The Abhishekam is scheduled at midnight on 19th August 2022. We invite you to visit the temple to witness this sublime view on this most auspicious day and be blessed.
