Founder-Acharya: His Divine Grace
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Thursday April 2, 2020
Lord Ramachandra ruled the earth as the ideal king more than two million years ago. Under the order of His father, Maharaja Dasarath, Lord Ramachandra lived in exile in the forest for fourteen years, along with His wife, Sita Devi, and His younger brother, Lakshmana. After the powerful demon Ravana kidnapped His wife, Lord Ramachandra rescued her, with the help of His faithful servant Hanuman, and killed Ravana along with Ravana's armies. The history of Lord Ramachandra's pastimes is recounted by the sage Valmiki in his Ramayana.
Hare Krishna. Temple is temporarily closed due to COVID-19 outbreak
Dear Devotees, Hare Krishna. Jaya Srila Prabhupada. Please accept my humble obeisances. We pray that you all are safe and doing well in your devotional service to Guru Gaurānga.
Due to COVID-19 outbreak, our ISKCON Atlanta temple is closed. Please avoid visiting the temple except for some important service.
Kindly take Darshan of our beloved Deities on WhatsApp group. We will keep you updated as this unprecedented situation evolves.
Your servant, Temple management
From ISKCON of Atlanta Temple:
Following guidelines from CDC, we have decided to temporarily cancel the Sunday feast program.
As we monitor the spread of the coronavirus in the US and in our county, and in an effort to help prevent the spread of germs, ISKCON of Atlanta has made the decision to follow the CDC guidelines to not congregate. We are particularly concerned for our elderly members, both residents and congregation.
ISKCON of Atlanta has cancelled the Sunday Feast program for the next 2 weeks
In order to protect anyone from the possible exposure of coronavirus, ISKCON of Atlanta has cancelled the Sunday Feast program for the next 2 weeks, starting this coming Sunday, March 15, 2020.
The Temple will remain open for darshan only. No food (prasadam) will be served.
We will continue to prepare breakfast and lunch for our devotees who work at the temple during the week, but request if you are able to make your meals at home to do so for now. Only those assigned Deity services in the kitchen and altar will have access to those areas.
We continue to request the following:
If anyone in your family is sick, the whole family should avoid attending the temple darshan for at least 2 weeks after the last person in the family has completely recovered.
As a community, we want to help each other stay safe. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need help or support in any way (refers to phone numbers on our website).
