Temple Schedule

The scriptures recommend that spiritual activities performed in the auspicious time of brahma-muhurta (1.5 hours before sunrise) have greater effect. Devotees wake up at 3:30 am, cleanse themselves according to the procedures recommended in the scriptures, wear fresh clothes, apply urdhva-pundra or vishnu-tilaka on twelve parts of their body and assemble in the temple with great enthusiasm to have darshan of the Supreme Lord.

4:30 AM Mangal Aarthi

  • Srila Prabhupada has given a mandate that there must be regular mangala-arati in the temple, an hour and a half before sun rise.
  • A grand arati is performed by offering incense, lamp, water, cloth, flowers, chamara (fan made of yak tail) & vyajana (fan made of peacock feathers) to Their Lordships.

4.50 AM – Narasimha Aarthi

  • The Supreme Lord appeared in the form of Narasimha, half-lion and half-man form, to protect His devotee Prahlada from the wrath of his father Hiranyakashipu, the greatest demon who defied the Supreme Lord.
  • Lord Narasimha always protects His devotees and takes away the obstacles in their devotional service. Devotees offer Him prayers before they begin their services. An arati is performed as the devotees sing Narasimha Kirtana.
