ISKCON, Sri Sri Rädha Veni Mädhava mandir is situated on the bank of holy Yamuna river. This mandir was started in the year 1995 and slowly the ashram is being developed into a full-fledged ISKCON temple. The beautiful deity of the divine couple Sri Sri Radha-Venimädhava Ji was installed in the year 2003. We have a small Guest House, a go-shala and a small patch of land to cultivate.
The significance of Prayäga:
Triveni Sangam: Confluence of the three holy rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswaté, where Magha mela takes place annually and Kumbha melas as well. Dasasvamedha Ghät: Lord Brahma performed the first ten horse sacrifices in Satya Yuga. About 500 years ago Lord Caitanya Mahäprabhu gave diksa & sikñsa to Srilä Rüpa Goswami here at this ghat. Supreme Lord Rämacandra stayed here for a short while at Akshaya bata and Bharadwaj Ashrama. Veni Mädhava: The presiding deities of Prayäg ksetra are Sri Sri Veni Mädhava, here Lord Caitanya Mahäprabhu rested for about a period of 15 days. Prayäga has a great legacy of being the place of Çrila Prabhupada's former residence and pharmacy. Prayäga is also the diksä bhümi of Srila Prabhupäda. He resided here for 13 years and envisioned the propagation of suddha-bhakti throughout the world. Vrindavana is overnight journey by train, Ayodhya the birth place of Lord Ramachandra is about 150 kms, Chitrakut, where Lord Ramachandra stayed during his exile period is also about 150 kms and Varanasi is also about 150 kms from here.
Note:Please accept our hearty greetings.
Celebration of Damodara brata is around the corner. During the month of kartik there are several other festivities like Srila Prabhupada disappearance day, Govardhan puja etc. are to be celebrated. We are getting geared towards this most auspicious month. Kartik dipdan will be done on every evening after the evening arati at our temples, where every one will have the opportunity to offer ghee lamp to the deities. It is said in the scriptures that anyone offers lamp to Lord Damodara during this time will be freed from all of his/her bad karma..We are cordially inviting your family and friends to attend the same at our Baluaghat temple and be blessed.
