Diwali Schedule 10/25

This year Diwali is celebrated at New Vrindaban on Saturday, Oct. 25th. After the morning program and breakfast, take a tour of the garden and cow barn at 10:00 a.m. or 3:00 p.m.  

Beginning at 4:45 p.m., watch the movie, “The Glories of Govardhana Hill,” participate in go-puja, and listen to captivating storytelling.  

At 7:00 p.m., the temple will be transformed by festive candlelight, while we perform arati, enthusiastic kirtans, and circumambulate Govardhana Hill.  

A swing ceremony with bhajans, and an 8:30 p.m. darshan with Damodarastakam will be followed by a small fireworks display and sparklers outside the temple.  Wrap up the evening with delicious prasadam and devotee association.
