With your kind co-operation, we all have been blessed with the shelter of Sri Sri Radha-Govind-ji at our Funabori Temple.
As per vedic calendar, they were invited (praan-pratishttha) on the auspicious day of Ratha-yatra.
This year is the 5th Anniversary of the New Temple in Tokyo. Half a decade has passed since then. Time Flies.
This year also marks ISKCON’s Golden Jubilee, 50th Anniversary.
To commemorate these milestones, we have special programs at the Funabori Temple on 3rd July 2016 (Sunday).
There will also be series of celebrations throughout the year.
Our humble service to the society is to connect people to spirituality for deeper peace, happiness and much more through the simple process of daily chanting the holynames of the Supreme Lord.
