We had a small puja to Lord Giriraja on Monday the 16th of November, with students and staff taking part in the ceremony.
Govardhana Puja is a commemoration of the day Lord Krishna lifted Govardhana Hill to provide shelter to the villagers of Vrndavana from the torrential rains sent by Indra, the lord of the heavens and thunderstorms.
This story is particularly special to our school, as our campus is located on New Govardhana, the ISKCON Temple and Farm community named after the original Govardhana Hill in Vrndavana, India.
We sang bhajans, heard the story of Govardhana Hill, circumambulated Lord Giriraja seven times, and shared the maha (food offered to Lord Giriraja).
