ISKCON temple to be opened on Saturday

The Hindu: The newly built Shri Jagannath Temple at Habbuwada in Karwar by International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) would be inaugurated on January 19, said Swami Uddhavanand Das. Swami Bhakthi Rasamrutha Maharaj of ISKCON would inaugurate the temple.
Addressing presspersons here on Wednesday in ISKCON here, Swami Uddhavanand Das said the temple inauguration would be followed by spiritual programmes for two days on January 20 and 21. He said that ISKCON had been holding Jagannath Rath Yatra once in a year in Karwar for the last several years. Now people could have the darshan of Lord Jagannath every day instead of once in year during Rath Yatra.
He said that ISKCON had planned to open branches at different places in Uttara Kannada district. ISKCON has units in Sirsi, Honnavar, Bailoor, Murudeshwar, and Shirali.
The mission of the organisation was to propagate spiritual knowledge in society.
Swami Uddhavanand Das said that by conducting satsang (spiritual meetings) every Sunday in colleges and schools, ISKCON was reaching out to students through the Bhagavad Gita.
