Blessing ISKCON Naperville’s New Temple

Naperville’s ISKCON Temple is securing their foundation.

Yesterday, the ISKCON Temple, also known as the Radha Krishna Temple, celebrated and blessed the installation of their new temple’s foundation stones.

“It’s a Vedic ceremony, we call it ‘This is the Vedic System.’ It’s an auspicious event, we set up the stones, which promotes auspiciousness and I would also say good luck,” said Paratul Patel, the secretary of ISKCON Naperville.

Since the current temple opened in 2010, the congregation grew rapidly, which brought the need for a larger building.

After the ceremony was food and fundraising to go toward the new temple’s construction, expected to start as early as this fall.
