Diwali and Govardhana Puja, Sunday, October 30

Diwali, meaning ‘festival of lights’, is one of the most widely celebrated occasions in the year. Diwali is observed not only by Hindus but also by Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs. The central theme for Hindus is derived from the epic Ramayana, but the festival also marks the traditional New Year’s Eve. Diwali is celebrated with elaborate firework displays, candles and lamps. Govardhana Puja, Go-Puja and Annakuta are all connected with the story of Lord Krishna lifting Govardhana Hill to protect the inhabitants of Vrindavan. On this day, a small hill of sweets is made from food prepared by the devotees, which is then offered to the Deities, and subsequently distributed to everyone. This is known as the “annakuta” ceremony. Cows are honored as part of the festivities as well. Please join us at ISKCON Boston for the Diwali and Govardhana festivity.

Education & Training by HG Balagovinda Prabhu

After a long deliberation we have decided to start systematic education and training courses at ISKCON Boston. As a first step we will be providing training to the devotees and then select few devotees to groom them as trainers (proper training will be given to the leaders) who can further impart training to others. In the month of December we have invited HG Balagovinda Prabhu (a brahmacari and VP of ISKCON Pune) to Boston for a month who will be training us in various ISKCON authorized courses. There would be charges and eligibility criteria for enrolling to these courses. Please contact : [email protected] for more details.
