Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Vaishnava Calendar

Our year is filled with holidays honoring the advent and passing of saints and Avatars. Krishna's appearance day, for instance, is called Janmashtami and is celebrated on a grand scale. We follow the lunar calendar. Dates vary by location. Use the drop-down menu located on the official GBC Vaishnava Calendar website to select the city nearest you and the year for which you wish to see the Vaishnava calendar.

Ekadasi, Saints and Incarnations

Every fortnight we observe Ekadasi, a day of prayer and meditation. On this day we fast (or simplify our meals and abstain from grains and beans), and spend extra time reading the scriptures and chanting the auspicious Hare Krishna mantra.
