Janmashtami Volunteers Fayre

1,634 views Janmashtami Volunteers Fayre thumbnail

We are currently looking for brand-new volunteers to help out for this year’s Janmashtami festival, which this year falls on Friday 10th and Sunday 12th August. It is volunteers that make this festival happen- – the largest festival of its kind outside of India. There are many ways you can help and if you didn’t take part last year please come along to the fayre where you can find out what opportunities are available, meet others and register.

We don’t just need help on the festival days either, there is plenty of service required between now and then! So why not take advantage of this special opportunity to serve Lord Krishna?

Day: Friday 13th July 2012

Time: 7pm – 9pm

Where: Bhaktivedanta Manor’s prasad room

Janmashtami

Bhaktivedanta Manor’s spectacular Janmashtami festival is expected to attract over 60,000 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 New Gokul farm 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 40,000 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.
