Braj Mandir follows the teaching of the Nimbarki tradition. We believe in following the teachings of Radha Krishna. The temple philosophy teaches us about devotional love, service, singing and dancing.
Braj Mandir (Hindu temple) welcomes everyone regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, or religious background. Our programs are attended by a diverse community. There is no membership required to participate in our temple programs and events.
When you enter Braj Mandir you will take off your shoes in the lobby, wash your hand, and be seated on a chair or the floor. You can simply pick up a pillow or small carpet for comfortable sitting on the floor. Children are welcome to sit with their families in the temple or play outside supervised by an adult. The services at the temple are informal.
We begin at 4:30 every Sunday by singing mantras or bhajans. These are very simple and easy to adopt. Our singing chants are also available in an English handout. We encourage all attendees to participate in these chants. The lecture on Gita begins at 5:30 in English. Attendees are encouraged to share their experience and ask question.
The arati begins at 6:30. This includes the waving of the fire in front of Radha Krishna deities, offering of water, fanning air with peacock feathers, blowing the conch shell, and offering of a vegetarian meal prepared with love and devotion called Prasadam.
While the arati is being offered everyone stands up to dance and sing the Yugal Maha Mantra.
Radhe Krishna, Radhe Krishna
Krishna Krishna Radhe Radhe
Radhe Shyam Radhe Shyam
Shyam Shyam Radhe Radhe
The vegetarian dinner is offered upon the completion of the arati at about 7:00pm.
The progam concludes with a second arati at 8:00pm.
