Huge preparations in Bhaktivedanta Manor, for the Janmastami Festival 2014

Janmashtami 2014 – Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th August 2014

Bhaktivedanta Manor’s spectacular Janmashtami festival is expected to attract over 70,000 pilgrims to celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna on earth 5000 years ago. The festival will demonstrate the spiritual variety of India’s ancient Vedic culture in all its glory.

On arrival, visitors will walk through the newly completed ‘New Gokul’ complex, Europe’s largest cow protection project, as they make their way to the colourful festival site. At the site, the main marquee will stage cultural dances and musical extravaganzas. Over 50,000 pilgrims will also eagerly queue in anticipation to greet Sri Sri Radha Gokulananda, the temple Deities, in the Manor’s exquisitely decorated shrine. Even the queue itself will be a spiritual experience, as it makes its way along a flowered walk-way around the Manor’s lake, with pilgrims admiring the illuminated displays of Krishna’s pastimes.

Throughout the day, kitchen staff will be working solidly, preparing no less than 50,000 plates of prasadam (sacred vegetarian food) that will be distributed freely to all pilgrims. A dedicated children’s area will feature a mini ‘main marquee’ where children will perform carefully prepared shows and dances. An array of stalls and exhibits will display spiritual art and literature, while there will also be themed marquees providing lifestyle tips, such as a cruelty-free diet and a reduced environmental footprint.
