Festivals are an integral part of ISKCON. With a myriad of colorful decorations, multi-course feasts, elaborate rituals, kirtans, dance and dramas, the festivals make spiritual progress a fun-filled experience. The original Vedic flavor is thus revived, and anyone who participates in them can vouch that there is no modern-day substitute for these soul-satisfying experiences.
The Vaishnava festivals dates are determined by using the lunar calendar. Therefore, dates will vary from year to year when compared to the western, or solar calendar.
