Sunday Love Feast

Krishna, Sunday Love Feast, Spanish Fork, Utah, Temple, Worship, Indian FeastFirst held in 1966 at the request of Srila Prabhupada (founder of the Hare Krishna Movement), the Sunday Love Feast has evolved as an integrated celebration of Lord Krishna’s pastimes: chanting, hearing spiritual knowledge, dancing, eating, fellowship and generally sharing the bliss of God’s presence.

A Sunday Love Feast is now held in nearly 400 temples worldwide. Anyone can come regardless of beliefs as we welcome all into an experience of Love.

In the Bhagavad-gita – one of the world’s oldest spiritual texts – it is said : “This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of spirituality. It is ever increasingly blissful, and joyfully performed.”

As we gather, we are led in universal prayers to the temple deities, then hear a talk with power point on spiritual philosophy by Caru Das, Temple President, or a guest lecturer. What follows is an ecstatic call-and-response chant to Krishna and Rama, which may spontaneously include blissful dancing to the chant. After closing prayers, we continue downstairs for a delicious Indian-style feast and conversation.

Come join us every Sunday for the Love Feast. No one leaves hungry for a taste of the Divine! Dress is casual but nice. $3 donation is suggested.

Krishna Temple
8628 S State Rd Spanish Fork, UT 84660-9227 (801) 798-3559

Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People

Nuchu-Voices-of-the-Ute-People,-Native-American,-Museum-of-Peoples-and-Culture,-BYUThe BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures is pleased to announce their newest exhibit, “Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People.”

The exhibit celebrates the rich heritage of the Ute throughout northeastern Utah, including Utah Valley. In the exhibit, their voices tell the story of their vibrant history and life.

The exhibit contains items collected around the Vernal area of Utah during the 1930s and 1940s. The text and labels for this exhibit are taken from interviews with Ute tribal members over the past 15 years, providing an opportunity to hear how the Ute view the items and their own heritage. Helping to fulfill the MPC’s mission to train future museum professionals, “students have combed through hours of interviews and texts, collaborated on the design of the galleries, and built the displays,” Kari Nelson, curator of education, said.

Old Time Post Office, Store, Home & School Exhibit

Gale Center of History & Culture Museum in South Jordan, Utah

School
The school is built to look as if we are ready for a day of learning at the turn of the twentieth century, about 1900. It resembles the one built at approximately 104th S. and 1300 West.

Home
This house is built to look like the home of Byrum Henry Beckstead, one of the first settlers in South Jordan and was built especially for children. In it they (you) have the opportunity to feel what it would have been like to live back in the early days of South Jordan.

Store
There were several stores in early South Jordan. The first large store was the Jordan Mercantile run by Joseph Holt. It was located at 10346 South 1300 West and was built about 1895. It carried a full line of household and farm items. It also housed an office, dance hall and stage. The wonderful building here in the History Center is a combination of two later stores that were important places in the lives of the early settlers starting around 1930.

Post Office
In early days mail delivery was very different from today. Mail to this area of the Salt Lake Valley was delivered once a week to the city of Sandy. One postman, or mail carrier, then delivered mail to the South Jordan, Bennion, West Jordan, Riverton, Draper, Midvale and Crescent cities. Then back to Sandy he went! He carried it all on his back in 2 bags.

Terrific Tuesdays – Monthly at 6 pm
Look no further than the Gale Center of History and Culture on Tuesday evenings for exciting family fun activities! We will have arts & crafts, guest speakers, movies, games, demonstrations etc.
