WHAT TO EXPECT
As soon as you step foot through the double doors into the grand temple room, you are transported to another time and place. The scent of incense wafts through the air, the gentle tinkling of bells mixed with ancient chants surrounds you, and your eyes feast on the beautiful and timeless form of the temple’s main deities, Krishna Balaram.
It is here that you can appreciate the eternal principle of unity in diversity. With over 40 nationalities represented in the congregation, this principle is illustrated as we all serve together, dance together, learn together and build strong friendships forgetting our superficial differences.
If you come on any Sunday throughout the year, we have our weekly Sunday Feast program from 5-8pm, where hundreds of people gather in a colorful and festive atmosphere to sing and dance in lively, soul-stirring musical meditation (kirtan), hear timeless philosophical truths, and eat a sumptuous (and free!) dinner feast that will leave you wishing you had three stomachs.
ISKCON St Louis offers many regular spiritual educational programs throughout the stlouis area. These programs help people understand how to become happy and how to live a life in harmony with the laws of nature.
This process of Krishna Consciousness is simple, joyful, and natural. Because of its scientific approach to spirituality, it is very quickly expanding all over the world to every town and village giving millions of people the genuine happiness that we all seek.
We invite you to experience this happiness. Give it a try by coming to one of our Sunday Feasts at the temple or a study group near you.
