Chandan Yatra – a festival underway at Bhagawad Dham, has been organized by the Gaudiya Vaishnav Association. Chandan Yatra is a ritual that was started more than 600 years back in Orissa’s famous Gopinath Temple. It is celebrated during summer when Chandan is applied on Lord Krishna. Bhagawad Dham at Parsik Hills, Navi Mumbai is one of the few religious centers to organize that Chandan Yatra. Hence one can see several devoteed making a beeline to Bhagawad Dham at Parsik Hills. We bring to you a few glimpses. The Founder Acharya of Gaudiya Vaishnava Association Srila B S Tirtha Maharaj has returned after a yatra to several countries round the globe. The Gaudiya Vaishnava Association aims at being the center where people can get spiritual knowledge of the Vedas, which is symbolized by devotional service to Lord Krishna. After Acharya Srila Bhakti Swarupa Tirtha Maharaj has successfully spread the teachings and glorious names of Lord Krishna all over the world, Navi Mumbai has been blessed enough to have been added to the list recently. And so was established the Radha Krishna Temple Bhagavat Dham at Parsik Hills. The temple today has become the complete Vedic education and cultural center. Every Sunday, there is a spiritual extravaganza at Parsik Hills with music, dance and food for soul feast where charya Srila Bhakti Swarupa Tirtha Maharaj talks about how there is actually no problem, the world is full of peace, love and harmony. Those who wish to visit Swamiji or listen to his spiritual talk can contact the temple on mobile number 98705 25111.
