Sunday, November 21, join us in welcoming Srimati Vrinda-devi as well as Srimati Tulsi-devi into her new room. When Srimati Vrinda Devi entered into the material world she manifested herself as the sacred Tulsi plant. Being very dear to Lord Krishna, her leaves are an essential part of Krishna's worship. She is extremely merciful and, by serving her, our devotional service to Krishna will grow. In the spiritual world, Srimati Vrinda-devi organizes all the arrangements for Radha and Krishna's pastimes.
About 600 square feet in size, the Tulasi Devi Greenhouse features double-paned insulated glass, and a bronze-finished aluminum frame with an ornamental crest along the roof ending in a motif based on ISKCON’s lotus logo.
