Festival of the Holy Name


Go Raksha Dharma Cow Protection

The New Raman Reti Goshala’s primary concern is to glorify and protect the sacred cow whose presence is always supremely pleasing to Lord Krishna. Everything that the cow produces is for the benefit of mankind and yet this all-giving animal is ignored, abused and exploited in modern society. Through the experience of a functioning goshala, we will be able to educate people about the value of the gentle, magnanimous cow and the importance of oxen in farming.

Please support this great effort. We have raised 2/3 of the needed funds to build the Goshala, only $30K remaining and we can begin. Click here to support the program, or quickly donate below.

Sponsorship Options


The entrance walls to the Eco Teaching Farm are now complete.  Hand made of cobb on a base of local rocks covered in tinted hempcrete and embellished with charming dancing cows, we pray that this lovely entrance way will usher in the new Goshala Barn for Krishna's milking cows.

Back to Godhead Magazine
Subscription Drive


Srila Prabhupada saw Back to Godhead magazine as the fulfillment of his request to "Study my books scrutinizingly and then give the purports in your own words." He was of course the first writer, printer, and distributor of Back to Godhead magazine, and encouraged his disciples to distribute it widely. In the early days of ISKCON, disciples went door to door with the magazine, and every harinama party had someone selling magazines to interested passersby. In those days Back to Godhead magazine was termed "the backbone of ISKCON." It was our first "book" for educating the general public on Krishna consciousness.

As times changed, sales have waned, and today there is a concentrated effort to invigorate distribution. The magazine is particularly geared for devotees and our large extended congregational members. You'll find interesting news from around the ISKCON world, relevant questions and answers, articles that delve into Vaishnava philosophy, and lots of gorgeous glossy photos.

Subscription Drive: Every temple in North America has been asked to commit to 30 new subscriptions a year for the next two years to give the magazine the financial base it requires to keep printing. If you don't currently subscribe, you can do so in our Temple Gift Shop, and at the book tent every Sunday. Single current issues are always for sale in the Gift Shop. As an offering to Srila Prabhupada for the 50th anniversary of ISKCON BTG hopes to show 10k subscriptions.

Gita Jayanti on Tuesday, December 2, 2014
Celebrate the Advent of the Bhagavad-gita


Gita Jayanti will fall on Tuesday, December 2 this year.
We will observe this very auspicious day which commemorates the advent of the Bhagavad-gita.
We will continue with tradition and chant all 700 verses of the Gita in the Temple room beginning at 4:30 p.m., and we will finish just in time for the Arati at 6:30 p.m. to begin. The program will be followed by an auspicious fire yajna and prasadam refreshments.
It is a powerful meditation to do this chanting on this day, so please plan to join in.
