Shri Shri Shri 1008 Suguneendra Theertha Swamiji of Udupi Sri Puthige Matha established the Shri Krishna Vrundavana temple in San Jose, CA on July 6th, 2013. The temple is affiliated to Sujnana Religious & Charitable Foundation (SRCF). Devotees in the San Francisco Bay Area now have a place of worship where they can learn the great philosophy taught by our Acharyas and to offer seva to Shri Guru Raghavendra Swamigalu, savior of those who place their faith in him.
This San Jose center is the sixth such temple in North America. Devotees can enjoy the other temples in the cities of Phoenix, Los Angeles, Houston, New Jersey, and in Toronto, Canada.
The presiding deity in the Shri Krishna Vrundavana temple is Shri Lord Venkateshwara. In line with the Dwaitha philosophy of “Hari sarvottamatva-Vayu jeevottamathva” the Vrundavana worships Mukhyapraana, in the form of Sri Hanuman. In this Kali Yuga millions of devotees can get the blessings of the Kalpataru Sri Raghavendra Swamy, whose mruthika brindavana is kept and worshiped here.
Puja is offered thrice daily to Shri Venkatesha, Mukhyaprana and Sri Raghavendra Swamy. Veda mantras are recited after puja and Annadaana (Maha Prasad) is distributed twice a day everyday excepting on the day of Ekadashi.
Shri Krishna Vrundavana will benefit people of all sampradayas, and their future generations by spreading the message of Lord Sri Krishna and strengthening the customs and traditions of our great culture in this part of the world. To the younger generation, this temple provides an opportunity to experience our rich cultural, traditional and religious roots. The Vrundavana provides opportunities to those seeking enlightenment and inner meaning of life by giving lessons in our scriptures. Devotees seeking to perform rituals and sevas can obtain the services of qualified priests who have undergone formal training in Udupi. For those wishing to spend a peaceful time, the Vrundavana provides the perfect tranquil setting. It is a place to congregate and participate in group chanting, which is conducted on a daily basis.
All Hindu festivals like Ugadi, Deepavali, Krishna Janmaashtami, Rama Navami, Madhwanavami, Navarathri, Shivarathri, Ganesha Chaturti are celebrated at the Vrundavana with pomp and splendor.
Shri Krishna Vrundavana conducts Veda, Stotra, Yoga, and Samskrita classes for adults and children on weekly basis.
So dear devotees, why delay, come and join your hands together in building your Shri Krishna Vrundavana and taking it to a higher level of success.
