The Hare Krishna movement has been dubbed the “kitchen religion”. We are famous for our sumptuous vegetarian food. In the process of bhakti-yoga, however, devotion goes beyond simple vegetarianism – and food becomes a method of spiritual progress.
We offer bhoga to Sri-Sri Radha Golokananda deities with prayers and sacred vedic mantras by devotional brahmins. By such sacred offerings the bhoga becomes prasad or prasadam, which is the mercy of the Lord.
The prasadam thus becomes a means for our purification and spiritual development .
At ISKCON NC, since 1985 we have been serving sanctified vegetarian prasadam 5 meals per day to our visitors, Weekly Sunday Feast programs, Weekly meals to UNC University, Duke University & Seva Bhakti Yoga Club at NCSU, end of the year outreach programs, Opulent feasts for all major festivals & more !
