A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
This year marks the 22nd Annual Prabhupada Festival at the New Dwaraka temple in Los Angeles, California, USA.
The Prabhupada Festival was founded with the purpose of allowing everyone and anyone to come together to hear about and glorify His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada – The Founder-Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.
The festival will be going on from Saturday, May 25th to Sunday, May 26th. Each day is packed with Prabhupada-themed events. There will be Kirtan in the temple room throughout the day; pastimes of Srila Prabhupada being retold by some of his most senior disciples; three Prasadam feasts a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner); Maha Hari-Nama. There will be Srila Prabhupada cinema to watch while the event participants take Prasadam; Prabhupada Ratha-yatra (this is a large Ratha-yatra cart in a procession down the street); and for the first time the Sri Sri Radha-Krishna Boat Festival in front of the temple!
The festival will be taking place at: 3764 Watseka Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90034, USA
