ISKCON Baltimore Sri Krishna Janmastami 2019

“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.

Lord Krishna’s bathing ceremony – called Abhishek – is witnessed by all attendees while Kalash sponsors get the opportunity to personally bathe the Lord personally.

Spiritual blessings await you & your family by sponsoring the Kalash & participating in the bathing ceremony of Lord.
