Janmashtami 2022

Spectacular Sri Krishna Janmashtami Friday, Aug 19,2022

Hindus of Greater Houston & ISKCON of Houston

Houston, TX. – ISKCON of Houston & Hindus of Greater Houston (HGH) celebrates this year’s auspicious Krishna Janmashtami (Appearance Day of Lord Krishna) at ISKCON’s state of the art temple at 1320 West 34th St., Houston, on Friday, August 19th from 6pm till midnight.

The premiere community-wide festival—observed on the actual divine astrological evening—is free and open to all, a perfect event to invite neighbors and colleagues to showcase the rich Hindu culture which contributes to Houston’s diversity. The evening runs on two simultaneous tracks: cultural programs in the Gauranga Community Hall, and spiritual discussions and kirtan in the temple.

The temple will be decorated with a multitude of fresh flowers, with live kirtan, spectacular darshan (audience) of the Lord, 3 Aratis (worship ceremonies) at 7:00, 9:00 & midnight, and a discourse on the importance of Janmashtami. The midnight Arati draws more than thousand devotees, who chant & dance ecstatically to welcome the Lord dressed in His new outfit.

In addition, there will be opportunities to perform Abhishek (ceremonial bathing of the Deity), Jhulan (swinging the Lord), guided mantra meditation, anointing with tilak (sacred clay) and children’s activities. Vendors will offer literature & other items. NilaMadhava’s Boutique in the temple building offers Indian musical instruments & CDs, art, clothing, jewelry, books & a variety of snacks.

“We are bringing the best from 33 years of celebrations by HGH and 43 years of celebrations by ISKCON of Houston – the most spectacular celebration of Lord Krishna’s Appearance Day. This year, it will be a very special one for all to come and see how a spiritual party is staged! The children’s costume contest will showcase an array of Divine characters in the form of divine kids.” – Thara Narasimhan (HGH President)

“Cultural program consists of Indian classical dances and Folk beat. This year, a very special guest – Mrs. Yamuna Srinidhi will be presenting a special treat during the cultural festival. Mrs. Srinidhi is an internationally acclaimed classical dancer, teacher and a movie star. The ecstatic kirtan is always a crowd favorite, especially the midnight aarti. – Sasi Mukhi Devi Dasi (ISKCON of Houston)

Although the delicious free vegetarian dinner is always a crowd favorite, attendees also have the option to dine at Govinda’s, ISKCON’s popular new vegetarian restaurant, right on the temple property.

Free and convenient parking and shuttle service from Waltrip High School 1900 West 34th St.
There will be NO PARKING available at the temple. Please plan accordingly.
