The glorious advent of Lord Krishna or Janmastami is celebrated with charming grandeur and magnificent pomp worldwide by millions of exuberant Vaishnavas. Due to the outbreak of a global pandemic, the entire devotee community has been urged to celebrate Janmastami at home.

Since the pandemic, the ISKCON GBC Strategic Planning Team has been providing useful resources online. For this Janmastami they have compiled a celebrate-at-home Janmastami portfolio, which consists of resources to make devotees' Janmastami experience delightful and filled with personal loving service to the Lord.

The ‘Janmastami Kit’ has four broad sections:

Sraddha Kutir (resources for Deity-worship at home)

Virtual Festivities in devotee sanga (links to major online events)

Delectable world of Prasadam (cooking courses, menus and offerings) 

Children’s Fun Corner (stories, activities)

Included on the site is the ISKCON Deity MInistry booklet - "The Temple in our Hearts - A Guide for celebrating Krishna Janmastami at home"
