The Divine Appearance Day Anniversary of Lord Krishna

It is that time of year again when the ringing bells of ISKCON Columbus announce the divine birthday celebration of Lord Krishna. Follow the sound to the grandest 2019 Sri Krishna Janmashtami festival!

It is a time to reflect on Krishna’s love and mercy and deepen your relationship with Him. Join us for days of reflection, prayer, worship, spiritual discussions, chanting of Krishna’s names, yoga, fun activities, and A BLOCK PARTY that hosts other engagements which will connect you with the Lord and celebrate His appearance in our lives.

Friday - August 23rd, 2019

The actual appearance day anniversary of the Lord brings you an experience you will never forget. Bring your family and friends to enjoy enacted pastimes of Lord Krishna around the lake (the Janmashtami Journey), benefit from chanting Krishna’s holy names, and relish a sumptuous evening dinner. Be enamoured by the Lords Sri Sri Radha Natabara at
a special midnight arati in their splendid new outfit.
Participate in ecstatic kirtans and bhajans (musical mantra meditation) to invoke auspiciousness and Lord Krishna’s sublime blessings
