Panduranga Mandir Inauguration 2019
Three days of ceremonies marked the inauguration of the Shree Peetha Nilaya Panduranga Mandir. The early spring days even featured snow one morning, but the devotees stood patiently outside anyway and the musicians did a fabulous job of singing for hours on end.

Paramahamsa Vishwananda presided over the Prana Pratistha ceremonies and gave short Satsangs each day to help everyone learn about the new deities, Panduranga and His wife, Rukmini. Gurudev described the dedicated faith of people throughout the centuries that resulted in personal relationships with the Divine, just as tangible as the relationships we have with friends and family, and in a touching moment remarked, 'If you only knew how much He loves you.'

In addition, this year, Lord Rama's appearance day (Ram Navami) coincided with the last day of Spring Navaratri, making it an especially rich experience to have all three festive events taking place on one day. Together with Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda and devotees from around the world, we celebrated Lord Rama and His life of compassion, virtue, and commitment to dharmic living.
