Harinam, the Sankirtan movement initiated by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu singing and dancing on the roads began 500 years ago. This continues at Kali’s age and is held every Friday at 5:45 pm at the corner of James and William Streets, near Govindas Restaurant in Northbridge.
All are cordially invited to come in large numbers and to glorify a man in the streets of the city of Perth.
After Harinam, free parsha is available at Paws Restaurant and parking is free.
We are pleased to announce that we can perform “Samskaras” or purification ceremonies at the Hare Krishna temple in Perth. The Vedic literatures describe that there are many opportunities during life, from before birth until after death, when one can perform a purification ceremony to evoke auspices and ensure advancement in the spiritual life.
Samskara is not a substitute for the regulative principles of spiritual life as enunciated by Srila Prabhupada. However, along with these principles, the performance of samskara guarantees ultimate perfection in life. Many of the samskaras offered are more beneficial if performed at an auspicious time astrologically. The pujari or priest in the temple can advise the right or auspicious moment.
Some of the Samskaras include :
1. Niskramana : When a child leaves the house for the first time
2. Pausti-Karma : Ceremony to protect child’s health
3. Anna-Prasana : Feeding a child grains for the first time
4. Cudu-Karnam : Hair-cutting ceremony
5. Vidyarambha : Entering school
6. Samavartana : Graduation
7. Vivaha : Marriage Ceremony
8. Griha-Ramba : Laying a foundation stone
9. Griha-Pravesa : House warming
10. Havan or Fire sacrifice ceremony for auspiciousness
11. House program : Chanting the holy name for auspiciousness
