Govardhan Puja

Dear Friends and Members of SVA,

Last week was an action-packed week filled with ecstasy. From observing the holy day of worshiping Govardhan Hill, to back- to back- to back outreach missions, here is a re-cap of what happened:

Govardhan Hill Puja Celebration

20+ food preparations were prepared and offered to Giriraja Govardhan. Devotees worshiped Govardhan Hill and prepared and offered a large variety of vegetarian food to Krishna as a mark of gratitude. For Vaishnavas, this day commemorates the incident in the Bhagavata Purana when Krishna lifted Govardhan Hill to provide the villagers of Vrindavan shelter from torrential rains.

Brahmacharis at FIU Diwali Festival
“The devotees had a great time sharing our Gaudiya Vaishnava teachings with over 100 students and faculty members at FIU’s Hindu, Nepalese, and Indian student group’s Diwali Festival. Haridas Brahmacari read Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja’s lecture on Diwali. Then Madhusudan Brahmacari and Tirthapada Brahmacari joined him on stage to lead a kirtan. Madhusudan’s energy was so inviting, the whole room was clapping and singing. Everyone in attendance received art prints, books, and prasad.”
