I want to know if ISKCON celebrates Navratri. If they do how they celebrate it?

  • No! They don't. They don't consider any other God as God except Lord Krishna. – TheLittleNaruto Mar 28 at 6:55
  • @TheLittleNaruto that's not true. They consider Shiva to be identical to Vishnu ( curd to milk analogy) and even celebrate Shivratri( though still putting emphasis on Krishna). – RishX Mar 28 at 7:06
  • @Rishx I personally attend iskcon programs. They don't celebrate navaratri or shivratri. May be some centres of iskcon might be doing. But officially, No. Secondly they don't think Shiva and Vishnu to be identical. – Vishal prabhu lawande Mar 28 at 9:09
  • @Vishalprabhulawande I meant almost identical..here read how they define Shiva tattva iskconpune.com/… – RishX Mar 28 at 9:21
  • @Vishalprabhulawande correct me if i am wrong..but Prabhupada did celebrate Mahashivratri. – RishX Mar 28 at 9:22
