  • Keeping Krishna Cool
    On the day of Aksaya Tritiya in Vrindavan, all large temple deities are covered with chandan (sandalwood) paste, and not a bit of cloth is used to cover the deities in the afternoon. The cooling effect of this substance provides relief from the scorching heat of summer. This practice is also followed increasingly by ISKCON temples all over the world, but it has been observed since time immemorial.
