Our Head Pujari, Vasudeva Das, has carefully curated a list of items, all of which are ideal in the service of Radha Muralidhara – from a simple pack of incense, to new earrings, necklaces, crowns, outfits, and even the opportunity to serve them by funding the feast for the upcoming Holiday Festival.

Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase and offer gifts at the Radha Muralidhara Holiday Festival.

RADHA MURALIDHARA HOLIDAY FESTIVAL 2016

let’s all come together

date – saturday. december 17

time – 6:00pm – 9:00pm

location – the bhakti center / temple 3e

admission – free of charge

The Bhakti Center invites you to celebrate the holiday season. At a time when bitterness and discord are on the rise we want to come together in a mood of unity, love and devotion. If you are a person that enjoys what the Bhakti Center offers, then you are part of our family and we want you there so that we can share our hearts and our appreciation.

Our speaker for the evening will be Kaustubha Das, our Senior Educator. The theme will be “The Spirit of Giving”. At the heart of the Bhakti wisdom is the concept of how the very essence of spiritual consciousness is the selfless desire to serve and please another. All forms of alienation, depression, conflict and hate can be overcome through selfless devotion. Kaustubha Das’s talk will serve as an inspiration to take in the lessons from 2016, and recommit, individually and collectively, to serve as instruments of divine love in the coming year.

The evening will also feature a short drama, ‘Miracle on Second Avenue’ presented by the Bhakti Center’s in-house troupe, b centered theater.

A special pushpa abhishek (flower bath) ceremony will be performed for Radha Muralidhara, and of course there will be lots of kirtan and a delicious feast served to all.

Please come and bring your friends!
