The New Vrindaban Summer Festival season began on Memorial Day weekend and more than 1,000 pilgrims visited just on Saturday! New Vrindaban celebrates its 50th year in various ways. In addition to two donor appreciation events, we had a VIP gathering of city officials, business partners, and academia. It was well attended and everyone had a great time. We are now preparing for the 50-hour kirtan, Snana-yatra and Ratha-yatra. In addition to the temple facade having been painted, we have done many other smaller renovations around the temple. When you visit, be sure to see our peacocks in full plume, the swans graciously gliding on the pond, watch the flowers and vegetables planted, attend arati and listen to the timeless discourses on the Bhagavad-Gita. You are sure to return to your homes rejuvenated from your visit to New Vrindaban. We look forward to serving you this Summer.
