COVID-19

ISKCON of Houston management team and key volunteers are consistently monitoring the situation related to the current global pandemic – Covid19 and related challenges, mandates from the government officials . Everyone in our community supports this most important issue. We have many devotees in our temple family, who are healthcare provider and first responders – to whom, we are very grateful and thankful.

Our temple has been closed to general visits and activities at the temple since early March. New Deity Worship procedures are in place to continue the worship of our beloved Lordships to the best standards possible under the current circumstances. All aartis, bhoga and daily worship continues.

We pray to our beloved Lordships Sri Sri Radha Nilamadhava & Their associates for the health and well-being of you and your families under the present situation. It has been a while since we were able to associate with you all at our temple. Stay well and we hope to see you all soon as things become a bit more stable and the government officials provide additional guidance. As you all know, the gatherings on Sundays and festivals will have a different look and guidelines but be assured, our Deities will still be as merciful as they always have been.

Most importantly, if you or your loved ones are seeking some assistance from ISKCON of Houston (our devotee family) during these challenging times – please reach out to management team and we will be here for you and loved ones.
