Shiva Ratri

This friday 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 Krishna-bhakti. 

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

PLACE: Nimaihuset
DAY: Friday February 28
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
