What is special at Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan’s temple, in the heart of Ghaziabad

About ISKCON Ghaziabad

ISKCON Ghaziabad’s Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan Temple is set upon 1,000 Sq. Ft. of prime land and a stone throw away from Sector-11 Rajnagar Ghaziabad. Currently ISKCON Ghaziabad is  also undertaking construction of a grand temple in Wave City Ghaziabad to serve Sri Sri Radha Krishna and the residents of Ghaziabad in various ways. This venture has been inspired by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder of ISKCON.

The Deities

The presiding Deities at the temple are Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan , Sri Sri Jagannath Baladeva Subhadra and Sudarshan, Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai. The Deities were personally installed by His Holiness Gopal Krishna Goswami Maharaj.

The Temple

I will state that Ghaziabad is such a city, the GBC could not cover it as a center. But by the earnest praying from the core of the heart, of a pure devotee, it has been into being.

By the unseen arrangement of Lord Krishna Mr. & Mrs. Arora, one N.R.I., donated the land with a building to Maharaja. Some enthusiastic devotees also encouraged. Therefore, Maharaja gave the keys on 11th July 1998,

I am very much grateful to the devotees by whose efforts it has been possible .

Our Jagannatha deties is very merciful and ‘will’ oriented. Frequently, he desires to extend His ‘Darshan’ to the populace. He not even like to sooth the mind and provides ‘darshans’ to Ghaziabad people only, but due to his causeless mercy, riding on chariot Prasad to Sahibabad, Bulandsahar, Meerut, Sikendrabad, Krishna Nagar, Dadri, Dankaur and so on, serval times.

All happened due to the causeless mercy of Their Lordships and ‘devotees of the Temple’. I just operated the phenomenon being an Insignificant instrument of the Lord.

We shall try our Best, and I am begging forgiveness for it.

It is all Krishna planning. In this context one sloka appears in my mind:

Jayantam suratau pangor mam manda-Mater gati

Mat Sarvasya padambhajau Sri Radha Madana- Mohanu

Glory to The all merciful Radha Madana Mohana! I am lame and ill advised. Yet they are My directors, and their lotus feet are everything to me.

All Glories to Devotees, associated, well wishers, donors, Ghaziabad residents whom we came across and to everybody

The Center for Vedic Studies:-

For serious students of Vedic culture, the center will provide classes, seminars, and conferences. The center will also offer special programs for school children.

The Vedic Center For the Performing Arts

The center will offer performances in music and dance by India’s foremost artists. Performances will take place in a traditional open-air amphitheater, facing the temple of Radha and Krsna.

The Asrama

The true essence of a place of Vedic culture resides with the enlightened people one finds there. The center will be home for devotees fully dedicated to studying, living, and teaching the Vedic culture.

I apologise, if I had committed any offence to any devotee or others.

Hope, this message meets you in good health and Jolly Krishna Consciousness.
