Radhadesh is honored to host the biggest Janmastami festival in Western Europe, where we welcome pilgrims from all over the continent. Facilitating their spiritual journey and creating connections with different seekers. Over the past years we have had the pleasure of welcoming more than 3000 people a year for this particular festival.
One of the most important services is to provide the necessary funds for the festival to facilitate the spiritual seekers. Our Janmastami festival is entirely relied on the donations from well-wishing sponsors. For this reason we have created three donation packages which you can choose from.

This sponsor package is for the duration of 2years!

These funds will be utilized to cover the following aspects of the festival:
Every year we invite skilled chefs who prepare nutritious Indian preparations. The preparations then get offered to Lord Krishna. These meals are then distributed freely to everyone throughout the day. The overall cost for this is 10.000 euros.
Flowers are so important to any function. They symbolize beauty, divinity and grace. On the Janmastami festival day we decorate the altar as well as the temple with many flowers. The cost for the flowers is 5.000 euros.
On this auspicious day, Lord Shri Krishna gets an elaborate bath by expert Brahmins with different items such as yoghurt, honey, ghee, and chandan. The costs for this is 1008 euros.
Make your prayer by offering a special candle to Lord Shri Krishna. To cover facilitating this the costs are 1008 euros.
