A beautiful celebration was held at the site of our new upcoming ISKCON Parsippany Temple. The new 3.25 acre plot sits at the heart of Parsippany NJ (rated by Forbes this year as one of the top 5 best places to live in the US) and will be the new home of Lord Krishna. Dozens of enthusiastic devotees participated with great zeal and energetic kirtan.

The weather was amazing for this time of year and we feel very confident that this grand project will proceed nicely.

This was followed by a beautiful Nrsimhadeva yajna held at the Towaco temple.
We celebrated the start of the temple construction and are grateful that we can offer this commencement as a gift to Srila Prabhupāda on this fiftieth anniversary of ISKCON.

Please watch this space for future announcements and updates. Hare Krishna.
