First 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.
No one leaves hungry for a taste of the Divine! Dress is casual but nice. $3 donation is suggested.

“Yoga changed my life. It calmed me. It centered me. It opened me up and brought flexibility into my life in more ways than one! When I practiced Yoga I was happy. When I didn’t, my body and my spirit yearned for it. When yoga became part of my life, I was able to finally come home to myself.”
Hatha yoga is like a “wish-fulfilling tree” of health benefits. 15 million people in the US couldn’t be wrong! Whether you’re looking to increase strength and stamina, de-stress from a long day, lose a few pounds, or just relax and “be” in a beautiful place, our classes are gentle but inspiring. Just as important, yoga postures can improve sitting posture and still the mind, in preparation for the inwardly focused practices that bring us into Krishna’s spiritual realm. We teach yoga as an aspect of bhakti or devotion to God, but that doesn’t stop it from being a great workout!
On Monday through Thursday evenings, come for special Integrated Yoga Nights, when we flow from one form of devotional yoga to another. An inner journey into the spiritual world unfolds naturally. These sessions begin at 6 pm with an offering of love and devotion to God. Guests are welcome to come for all or part of the program, according to their preferences.
Hanuman also teaches Integrated Yoga on Saturdays at 12:30 pm. Don’t miss this customized, fun class with one of the area’s top yoga and martial arts instructors (and kirtan leaders). Get ready to serenely enter Krishna’s realm with a potent blend of Kundalini, Hatha, and Shakti (power) Yoga, as well as Tai Chi and other traditional martial arts exercises. We begin with the noon offering and Hanuman takes it from there.

The Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah and was built to meet the needs of the Hindu community in Utah County, Utah and hosts seasonal festivals, weddings, receptions, Yoga classes and other weekly services for prayer and meditation.
The 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.
Holi 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.
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! ***
On the main stage (subject to change):
10 am – 11:00 am will be Prem Mayi & Band
11:00 am – 12:30 pm, Namrock with TK & Nirantara with Jai Krishna Das & Govinda Dhatta, including Curt Gordon (lead guitar), Troy Peery (bass) Josh Francis (Trumpet), Dan Nelson (Saxaphone) & Shaun Thomas (drums).
Brought back by popular demand is the fabulous jet ski Kite Team: Kiteman Productions from Orlando, Florida. If you were unable to attend last year this is one spectacle you should try to see. They are amazing! Also, on the main flying field, Utah Kite Fliers will demonstrate expert flying with their multiple stunt kites both on Friday night under the lights and on Saturday (wind-permitting) all day; the most popular feature of the Wind Fest was the Childrens Kite Making Workshop which will be in full swing this year. Also, we will again feature the Kite Garden display called Aerial Art by local kite creator Scott Hampton. On Saturday at high noon, you can witness the Parade of Flight Small Aircraft fly-over to honor the 1st Anniversary of the Wind Turbines.
The Wind Fest also features the popular Energy Expo. Vendors, businesses, and Entrepreneurs from the surrounding area will feature “green” products and practices. This Expo is unique in that you can actually test drive a Segway or a Klune Chariot, or an Electric Gem Car.
