Sri Radhe Kunj, Bhaktabandhav Dham, is a center to preserve and inculcate the teachings of our Divine Master, Srila Gurudeva, Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja. It was inaugurated in 2013 and has since quadrupled in size and become established in Vrindavan as a well-known center of bhakti culture and open-hearted prasadam distribution.
Our core ethos is to serve one and all truly without expectation.
Life in Bhaktabandhav Radhe Kunj centers around the five principles of pure bhakti given by Srila Rupa Gosvami: living in saintly association; in the holy places of Krsna’s appearance; while engaged in kirtana; hearing hari-katha, and; worshipping the Deities with love and faith.
Along with this, we strive to always follow the essential teachings given by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to incessantly perform nama-sankirtana and to continuously serve the Vaisnavas.
In the predawn hours, devotees wake and go on parikrama of Vrindavan, circumambulating Krsna’s holy city of 5,000 temples. They then sing bhajanas before the mangala-arati ceremony of waking the Deities.
In the temple, we have five daily aratis for Radha-vinoda Bihari and Panca-tattva, ten hours of kirtans, and four classes.
All the Deities and murtis of the Guru-varga are daily bathed and worshipped with full arcana and sringara.
Everyday in Radhe Kunj there is a free lunch feast open to the public, and hundreds of guests, devotees, and Vrajavasis daily visit for this prasadam lovingly prepared by Sripada Premananda Prabhu.
We have around 100 temple residents who spend the day absorbed in their services and spiritual practices.
Temple services include Deity worship, Temple services include Deity worship, cooking, cleaning, book distribution, temple development, bhiksa, and book publication.
Since 2015, we have published 20 books on pure bhakti and the lives of the saints in our line, which are being translated and distributed around the world, alongside the transcendental literature of Srila Gurudeva, Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, and Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Prabhupada.
