Sunday Program from 3pm to 5pm
Every Sunday is a celebration at an ISKCON temple. With delicious multi-course vegetarian meals, music, dance and spiritual discussion, the guests can experience the world’s oldest cultural tradition. The program provides an opportunity to learn about the lifestyle and culture of those who practice Bhakti Yoga.
The Founder Acarya of ISKCON, Srila Prabhupada started the “Sunday Love Feast” in 1966. He would personally invite guests, cook entire meal. He would serve the devotees a variety of tasty Indian-vegetarian preparations. Along with the vegetarian feast, Srila Prabhupada would chant with the guests, dance and give a lecture on the ancient sacred text Bhagavad-Gita.
Since then, this is celebrated in all the ISKCON Hare Krishna Temples around the world. We would like to invite you to our weekly Sunday Open House to a ISKCON centre near you, for a rich and vibrant experience which provides a flavour of Bhakti Yoga.

Sri Gaura Purnima is the auspicious appearance day of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, also known as Gauranga due to His golden complexion. As stated in the scriptures, the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna appeared as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and taught the importance of devotion to Lord Krishna through congregational chanting of the holy names of God, known as the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra. He appeared on Phalguni Purnima, the full moon day in Phalguna (Feb-March) in 1486 AD (1407 Shakabda) at Sridham Mayapur as the son of Sri Jagannath Mishra and Srimati Sachidevi. His parents named Him Nimai since He was born under a Nimba (neem) tree in the courtyard of His paternal house. This festival also marks the beginning of the New Year for Gaudiya Vaishnavas.
