Festival of Holy Name

The holy name of Krishna is the highest benediction. It is sweeter than the sweetest honey, and it is the fruit of transcendental knowledge of the tree of the entire Vedic scriptures -- Skanda Purana, Quoted in Hari Bhakti Vilasa (11.234)

Festival of Holy Name

The Festival of the Holy Name (FoHN) in Chicago, during the July 4th weekend, attracted numerous devotees (many more than last year!) from across the US who assembled with a single purpose: to go deeper into the chanting of the holy names of Lord Krishna, in the association of His devotees. The festival was organized by HH Romapada Swami Maharaja.
