Diwali & Annakuta Appeal

Thursday, October 15th, 2020

Please accept my best wishes and the blessings of Lord Shree Krishna. I hope you are well and coping with the second national lockdown, which has brought more challenges, especially for celebrating this year’s Diwali and Annakuta in the temple.  

Normally at this time, lots of  devotees would be happily working in our temple kitchens to prepare many different types of sweets and savouries to offer Shree Krishna for His Annakuta. With the second lockdown in place and in keeping with government guidelines ensuring everyone’s safety, we will have only a small crew of devotees to cook various offerings.

We will strive to make a very beautiful offering for Lord Krishna’s pleasure, but it will be smaller than normal. Your seva is appreciated, and as soon as lockdown conditions have been lifted, the temple will ensure that prasad thalis and your dedications are offered to Lord Krishna for His pleasure. Your donations will also be used for the darshan festival, including providing ready-packed prasad for all the pilgrims who attend. 

Once the lockdown conditions have been lifted, we will post maha prasad to everyone who has sponsored thalis. Of course, I appreciate your seva in every way and if you have any queries, please email:

Even with the national lockdown, the temple remains open for individual prayers (darshan). Please book your visit at

Life has changed and may never be quite the same again, yet the peace, hope and strength we find from our spiritual connection with Krishna empowers us to face whatever may come. Shree Giri Govardhana ki jai!

We remain grateful to you for your continued support.

Celebrate Gita Jayanti

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

gitajayanti 20156

The Bhagavad Gita is a transcendental dialogue between Lord Sri Krishna and His devotee Arjuna. Spoken at the outset of a great battle, it is an encyclopedia for humanity.

In contrast to the atheistic scientist’s purely physical (and hence incomplete) description of everything, Bhagavad Gita makes a distinction between the spiritual self and the material body.

The mind, intelligence and senses are discussed in terms of their strengths and limitations, and guidelines are given for their intended use.

Recite the entire Bhagavad Gita… in 5 hours!

Refresh your soul in the company of His Holiness Sivarama Swami & His Grace Gauri das. The entire 700 verses of the Gita will be recited, and chapter summaries will be presented. A fire yajna will be conducted throughout the recitation.

Gita Jayanti offers the opportunity to celebrate the appearance of Bhagavad Gita and to distribute this gem to many others. You are invited to sponsor Bhagavad Gitas and distribute them to your friends, family and colleagues. Alternatively the Temple on your behalf will place them in schools, universities, hospitals or prisons through its various programmes.

Please note that due to limited space, a maximum of 2 persons per sponsorship can participate in the temple room recitation, (1 person for £51 sponsorship). Additional space will be provided in other rooms equipped with video feeds.
