On Sat., Sep. 15, the New Vrindaban community, home of the Palace of Gold hosted its first Festival of Colors, which was a great success.
"When it comes to unrestrained celebration, the devotees at New Vrindaban’s Palace of Gold in the hills of northern West Virginia really know how to throw a party."
"The devotees at New Vrindaban did a fantastic job organizing this event, the first of its kind in the Eastern US,with exotic food, beautiful surroundings, and most of all ACCEPTANCE, a virtue not normally witnessed enough in some religions today. My family and I learned a great deal about their culture, and had a great time doing so, and look forward to coming back year after year to "celebrate life in this special way."
"...as I scanned the crowd, I noticed that it was a delightful mix of
young and old, the rich and not-so-rich, hippies and yuppies, devotees and
non-devotees, all laughing and smiling while dancing to the music."
