Priestly Services

We perform Vedic Samskaras or purificatory ceremonies at the ISKCON Columbus temple. Our priests are highly qualified and trained in performing Vedic rites. They have deep understanding of Vedic literatures and Vaisnava philosophy, hence are able to explain every rite and ritual with proper context.

The Vedic literatures describe that there are many opportunities during one’s life – from before birth to after death – when one may perform a ceremony for purification to evoke auspiciousness and ensure advancement in spiritual life.

We welcome you to contact us with your specific needs by contacting Premvilas das at +1 (614) 946-5568 or send an email to
