ISKCON of Greater Chicago (Naperville) Govardhana Puja 2015

Sunday 15th November 2015

The day after Diwali is called Annakuta, or Govardhana Puja. On this day the inhabitants of Vrindavan (Lord Krishna’s abode on Earth) used to hold a festival to honor King Indra, the demigod responsible for providing the rains essential for a successful harvest.

To celebrate this festival, devotees build a replica of Govardhana Hill made of various opulent foods, worship Lord Krishna as the lifter of Govardhana Hill, worship the hill as His incarnation, and worship the cows and bulls who are dear to the Lord. At the end of the festival, the hill of prasadam (sanctified food) is distributed to the public. All vaishnava temples in India and throughout the world observe this ceremony, and hundreds of people are fed prasadam according to the capacity of each temple. Actual date of Govardhan puja is on 12th Nov 2015 but in ISKCON of Greater Chicago, we will celebrate on 15th Nov 2015.
