ISKCON Las Vegas
Govinda's Center of Vedic India, established in May of 2002, is a spiritual nonprofit organization, a branch of ISKCON - a worldwide educational institution based on the ancient culture of India and the transcendental knowledge of the Vedic literature. Govinda's Center offers guidance in the Vedic techniques of spiritual life that have been described in the most ancient scriptures on this planet – the Vedic literature, written 5,000 years ago in India – especially in the summary of Vedic wisdom: Bhagavad-gita As It Is.
The transcendental wisdom of the Vedas has been the source of spiritual enlightenment for many people down through centuries and still inspires and guides many on their journey to spiritual perfection.
The center also offers a unique collection of books and videos that document the Vedic perspective on archeology, genetics, reincarnation memories, out-of-body experiences, parapsychology, cross-cultural cosmology, and more....
Govinda's Center of Vedic India is centrally located, close to the airport and 10 minutes from the famous Las Vegas Strip. The Center features a small Radha-Govinda temple, yoga studio, and gift shop.
Millionaires are also welcome to contribute to Prabhupada’s vision of changing the world by changing the consciousness of the people in Las Vegas to Krishna consciousness. Because Las Vegas is one of maya’s chief capitals, it would be a good investment with high Krishna conscious returns.
Plans have been drawn up and construction on the project will begin in earnest within three weeks. The new temple itself will cover 2,045 square feet, and combine modern architecture with Vedic arches and domes.
Three-foot-high Radha-Govinda Deities carved in Jaipur were sponsored at their full $5,000 cost by a Californian donor during this month’s groundbreaking ceremony and are already on their way. They will be worshipped on the temple’s only altar which is expected to be a beautiful marble affair. In total, the entire ISKCON Las Vegas complex—to be named “Govinda’s Sanctuary”—will cover about 6,500 square feet of “under-roof” space. As well as the temple, it will feature a Govinda’s restaurant, a gift store, a large yoga and seminar room, residential quarters for devotees, and guest rooms.
