Shiva Ratri - Lord Shiva's Night


This sunday we honour Lord Shiva, Gopīśvara Mahādeva — the foremost Vaishnava, gatekeeper of Vrindavan, and helper of Krishna-devotees. We will sing the Shiva-mantra, read about Him, and sing some more. 

There will be no prasadam served since we observe fasting for Lord Shiva to get His blessings on the path of devotion, but if you are here on the saturday satsang, you too will make it fasting for Him.

Bring flowers and fruits to offer to Lord Shiva and come sing with us and hear about Him.


PLACE: Nimaihuset
DAY: Sunday March 10
TIME: 19.00


Vrindavanvani-pate jaya soma soma
maule sanandana-sanatana-naradeya
gopishvara vraja-vilasi-yuganghri-padme
prema prayaccha nirupadhi namo namas te

[O Shiva, O gatekeeper of Vrindavan! O you who are accompanied by Uma! O you who carry the moon in your hair! O lord worshiped by Sananda Kumara, Sanat Kumara and Narada Muni! O Gopisvara, the worshipable deity of the gopis! Desiring that you bestow upon me love for the divine couple, Sri Sri Radha Madhava, who perform joyous pastimes in Vraja, I offer my obeisances unto you again and again.] 
 Srila Visvanatha Chakravarti Thakura, Sri Sankalpa-Kalpadrum


Om Namah Shivaya
