Sri Gaudiya Vaisnava Calendar 2013-2014

Please note that the following dates are based on the Bengali Vaishnava Calendar, Sri Gaudiya Parva Talika, and all dates and times listed here are calculated for Bhubaneswar, India, in the same time zone as Sri Nabadwip Dham, Mayapur, India.

Because the Vaishnava Calendar is a lunar calendar, these events are often celebrated on different days in different countries. Please contact your local ISKCON center for local dates and times. To download your own calendar or sign up for email Vaisnava Calendar reminders, click here.

Please see Ekadasi section for more details on how to follow Ekadasi and vaisnava festivals. Click here.

How to Observe Festivals
* Ekadasi style prasad is observed on festival days that are for Visnu Tattva such as Janmastami and Lord Balaram's Appearance Day. (Also bi-monthly Ekadasi days.) Grain prasad is observed after the recommended fasting period on all festival days that are not Visnu Tattva such as Sri Radhastami. Ekadasi style preparations are considered to be simple dishes prepared from roots, fruits and milk and offered with devotion. Spicing is mostly with salt and pepper only. Please see calendar details below for specific fasting and Ekadasi section for more dtails.

** Vaisnava Appearance and Disappearance days are recommended to be observed by glorification of the Vaisnava Thakura by seva, readings and bhajans. A half day fast followed by grain prasad feast can also be observed.
