Entry to Melbourne Temple for rostered services

Entry to Melbourne Temple for rostered services

15.3.2020

As you all are aware, to prevent the spread of coronavirus the Temple is closed until further notice from Monday, 16 March. Temple gates (front and back) will be locked at all times. Our managers have finalised how devotees will be given entry to complete their rostered services.

Access to Temple 

Phone numbers for department heads and some ashram devotees are displayed at the front gate.

Please call any of these numbers for access when you reach the gate. Service rosters are displayed to verify your service.

Important 

  1. Entry is only for rostered devotees – not for anyone accompanying them – including family and friends.
  2. Please leave the campus once your service is complete. Ask someone with the gate key to let you out.
  3. All temple programs, including chanting sessions, are for temple residents only.
  4. If you are feeling unwell, you must prioritise informing your department head.

Considering the seriousness of this situation, we request everyone’s co-operation.

Praying that you all stay safe and healthy,

Your Servant,
Arjuna Sakha Das (Staff Co-ordinator)

Book Your Deity Darshana on our App

To attend Deity darshanas at Hare Krishna Melbourne, you must book using our ISKCON Melbourne Darshan app. Strictly NO BOOKING, NO ENTRY.

The ISKCON Melbourne Darshan app for Android and IOS are available from their relevant app stores:

IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING

IMPORTANT:

  1. Each individual over 16 years of age must book their own slot as a user. Individuals who are 16 years and under can only be added as guests.
  2. We release new darshana slots each week. Bookings for the morning program (4:30 am to 9 am) open on the evening before.
  3. Along with the darshana slots at 12:30 pm, 4 pm (4:30 pm on weekends), 5 pm, 6 pm, 7 pm and 9 pm, there will be some additional darshana slots available at 11 am.

  6. All visitors must carry face masks. The State government strongly recommends that you “wear a face mask when at a private gathering or when you cannot maintain 1.5 metres distance from other people.”
  7. Your booking must be made under your legal name so your contact information can be provided to state authorities upon request.
  8. Bring your Photo ID (photo or soft copy) with you to verify the identity you used to book.
  9. You may book a maximum of ONE darshana per day and 2 darshanas every 7 days. We want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to receive the Lords’ darshana.

  11. Please maintain social distancing at all times, take responsibility for your personal hygiene, and return home when your darshana is complete.
  12. Those who are offering rostered services are also required to book on our app to attend darshanas during public arati/darshana times, so that we do not breach the legal limit of 40 people.

For app-related issues, please email info@harekrishnafoodforlife.com.au

Here are the current State government guidelines for religious institutes.

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact the Temple on 03 9699-5122.

“I’ve learnt that the best way to help yourself is to help other people. That does wonderful things for your mental health and your idea of what you are worth. You don’t get that in the shops or on Instagram. I thought I was helping them. Then I found out that they were helping me” (Ellie)

Your generosity enables us to maintain regular Deity worship, daily free food distribution, special festivals, and community outreach. Alongside our priests and Deity worship team, you are a crucial link in our chain of service to please Krishna.
