By Thomas Haribol, ISKCON News Managing Editor   |  Jul 18, 2023

A new video released by ISKCON Vrindavan shows the extent of the flooding of the Yamuna River as of June 16, 2023.  Drone footage shows the impact upon key historical areas like the Keshi Ghat and the Bhaktivedanta Swami Goshala, home to 350 cows, bulls, and calves.  The expanding waters of Yamunaji have reached the gates of the goshala, and steps are being taken to ensure the safety and relocation of the cows as needed. On July 17th, a Yamuna Arati was performed.

Food for Life Vrindavan is also setting up food distribution stations to aid residents who have been displaced due to the rising waters.  We will be following developments and update readers.
