Basic to the practice of bhakti-yoga (connecting with Krishna through love and devotion) is a personal relationship with God. One traditional means of developing it is through worshiping the Deities of Krishna (God), according to the method recommended in the Vedic scriptures. The focal point of Deity worship in Villa Vrindavana is the Vedic temple. Community life is centered entirely around the beautiful temple, where quiet meditation, conferences on ancient Vedic literature, ceremonies and kirtans (devotional congregational chanting) also take place.

Ocean of Mercy

In the Vedic Temple of Villa Vrindavana we have the great fortune to worship our dear and beautiful Deities Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Vrajasundara, Sri Jagannatha, Sri Baladeva and Srimati Subhadra, Sri Sri Gaura Nitai, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura and Srila Prabhupada. Although the Vedic worship method is very complex and includes many rules and regulations, still there is great benefit even just by seeing (Darshan) of the Lord's Deity form, being present during the ceremonies (Arati) offered to Him, presenting Him with an offering or donating for maintaining His worship.
