Srila Prabhupada's Vision

"Our farm projects are an extremely important part of our movement. We must become self-sufficient by growing our own grains and producing our own milk, then there will be no question of poverty. So develop these farm communities as far as possible. more...

Srila Prabhupada's Visit

The New Talavan Community's spiritual life revolves around their beautiful temple and beloved Deities. The Deities are offered foodstuffs five times daily, dressed and worshiped at scheduled times according to Vedic scriptural standards.

Guests are always welcome, particularly during scheduled darshan times and at the Sunday Feast, every week at noon. Be sure to plan to arrive early so you can get a parking space and be in the temple to greet Their Lordships at 12 on the dot!
