In Celebration of the 8th Anniversary of Vrinda Kunda Temple Opening, we have made an ecstatic schedule of parikramas and festivals from Feb 15 to Mar 4th. This year Mayapur festival is late, so Vrindavan Festival will be very hot. But in Vrindavan before Mayapur Festival is one of the best times of the year as the weather is very pleasant. Last year one devotee told me that he never knew there was so nice weather in Vrindavan. Our festival ends on Mar 4th so you have time to get to Gaura Mandal Parikram which begins on Mar 8th!
Most of the parikramas will be from 18th onwards. Those who are going to the other temple aniversary festivals on Nityananda Trayodasi and were wandering what to do until Mayapur Festival can take advantage of our festival Program.
Almost everyday we will leave in the morning from Krishna Balaram Mandir and visiting different places of the Divine Pastimes of Radha and Krishna and then returning for lunch, unless otherwise noted. The grand finale, our famous Sankirtan Procession around Nandagram with the ladies in front carrying waterpots with coconuts on top, Kalash Yatra, will be on Sunday Feb 27th. And that day will be totally free for everyone!
