ISKCON St. Louis
This temple community offers education and congregation services as well as traditional temple worship events.
International Society for Krishna Consciousness, popularly known as ISKCON celebrated Janmashtami in its St Louis premises on Thursday, August 9 in the evening.
Krishna Janmashtami, the appearance day of the Lord himself, is the highlight of annual activities. It’s the most auspicious occasion when the Lord descended about five thousand years ago. The event started with deity worship and ecstatic chanting of the Holy Name in the background. Accompanied with musical instruments like kartalas and mrdanga, the earnest calling of the devotees to their Lord reaches a crescendo immersing everyone in the nectarean sound vibration.
