SRI KRISHNA JANMASHTAMI
August 21/22 & August 30, 2021

 Sri Krishna Janmashtami – the celebration of the transcendental birthday of Lord Krishna – is fast approaching, and we invite you to come celebrate with us at New Vrindaban.

Now more than ever, amid the global pandemic and riots, we need to invoke the blessings of Lord Krishna. When Krishna appeared in this world over 5,000 years ago, He eliminated the evil influences on the planet, and He promises to do the same for anyone who celebrates His divine appearance.

As stated in the Hari-bhakti-vilasa (Texts 283-284, 289-292)

“By observing Sri Krishna Janmashtami one becomes free from the sinful reactions committed in seven lives. One gets good children, good health, and great wealth.... One will not have to fear enemies and will get sufficient rainfall and never have to suffer from drought. One will not have to fear natural calamities, hellish conditions, snakes, disease, or the attacks of rogues and thieves...”

So, let us come together to satisfy Lord Krishna on His birthday and spread auspiciousness throughout the world in these dire times!
