Krishna’s teachings are all-encompassing.   They do not discriminate against race, gender, nationality, socio-economic level or culture.  Braj Mandir supports that Krishna’s teaching are available to all. The whole world is one family.  There are five portals to discover Krishna’s all-encompassing joy.  One is Kirtan.  This is call and response singing supported with Indian instruments like the harmonium, mridangam drum and kartels.  Kirtan chanting can be both blissful and ecstatic.  It can lead to a connection to divine love in the heart. At the festival kirtan wallahs from all over New England and beyond will lead the Yugal Maha Mantra along with melodious bhajans that will bring you into the transcendental mood of Vrindavan. Two is prasadam or vegetarian food cooked with divine love all by volunteers.  Three is celebrating all-encompassing joy by attending jubilant festivals.  Four is practicing meditations. Five is being in the present of like-minded people focused on Krishna’s teachings.
