Krishna’s Birthday/Janmashtami 

Thursday, Aug. 25

In May, the Hare Krishna Temple reopened as the Boise Hare Krishna Temple and Vedic Cultural Center. During a renovation, the temple complex had doubled in size, and had added a library of Vedic literature, a commercial kitchen, two performance stages and a 3,000-foot park. To celebrate, the temple threw a big bash with loads of food, dancing and a ribbon cutting.

Swing by the new cultural center Thursday, Aug. 25, for Krishna's birthday, known as Janmashtami. Krishna is one of Hinduism's most important figures: the absolute incarnation of Lord Vishnu, he's the religion's supreme being, a prankster, a model lover and generally the bees knees. Swing by the cultural center for a celebration of his birth with a buffet of Indian food, dance, music, drama—and the unveiling of the House of 10,000 Flowers.
