Festival of Lights

Festival of Lights, Spanish Fork, UtahThe event will include classical and folk-dancing, live music, dramas, a ceremony of lights, a huge vegetarian feast, and offering of respects to a live cow.

The Festival of Lights occurs during the lull between fall harvests and the onset of the monsoons. Thus it is a time of thanksgiving, and that corollary festival is called Anna Kuta (literally meaning “heaps of food”). Lord Krishna inaugurated this festival by inspiring the inhabitants of His village (Vrndavan) to worship the cows on this one day per year and to prepare a huge celebratory feast consisting of no less than 108 preparations.

Guests are encouraged to prepare vegetarian dishes at home (without onions or garlic) and bring them to the temple to augment the devotional offerings. Optionally, one could bring fruits, or flowers.

Festival of Colors

Holi Festival of Colors Celebration the coming of Spring, Krishna Temple, Spanish Fork, Utah, Utah County Valley, Music, Feast, Indian, DancingHoli is the Festival of Colors, a traditional Indian holiday celebrated in our own innovative fashion. By far our biggest festival of the year, during Holi 2010 thousands of revelers flooded the temple and grounds for a day of brightly colored powder, mantra, music and a bit of “holi” mayhem.

There will be musical interludes, the lighting of a bonfire, burning of an effigy, and the throwing of dry colors on friend and foe alike.

This year, realizing that Holi has developed a national following especially among college festival-goers, we are preparing more parking and more colors (by far) than ever before. The music, the dance, the worship, the facilities — everything is being upgraded for Holi 2011.

The Tradition

In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a colorful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other.

Holi 2011 Color Throwings will be March 26th every 2 hours from 10 am – 8 pm & Sunday March 27 from Noon – 4 pm *** Admission is Free! ***
