ISKCON Baltimore Sri Krishna Janmastami 2019

Friday August 23 @ 7:00 am - 11:59 pm

“One who knows the transcendental nature of My appearance and activities does not, upon leaving the body, takes his birth again in this material world, but attains My eternal abode. O Arjuna”
– Bhagavad-gita 4.9

The Supreme Lord Sri Krishna appeared on the earth 5200 years ago. His appearance in this world is remembered & celebrated as Janmashtami festival.

At ISKCON Baltimore we celebrate this festival with devotion & great pomp. The temple has scheduled devotional activities throughout the day, like all day kirtan & arati | abhishek | discourse | dance | drama | kids activities | dahi handi | free feast etc.
