Switzerland

There are three temples in Switzerland – all are temples that were inaugurated in devotees houses.

SRI KAMALA NETRA KRISHNA TEMPLE, CUDREFIN

In October 2008 Sri Swami Vishwananda inaugurated the Kamalanetra Krishna Temple in Cudrefin. The main murties of the temple are Radhe Krishna, Narasimha and a golden Sri Yantra (Lakshmi). The temple itself is a Radhe Krishna temple. Kamala means lotus and netra means eyes. The temple’s name is an expression of Krishna's beautiful lotus eyes. Janvi, an artist who is living in Springen painted a picture of Radhe Krishna representing our temple (see picture).

Besides the main murtis Swami Vishwananda blessed several other Murtis in our temple like Babaji, Shirdi Sai Baba, Shiva, Vishnu, Rama, Gayatri, Bhu Devi, Durga, Kali, Saraswati and Lakshmi. The temple was blessed by Swami with his golden Sandels (Padukas), a Jesus & an Mary Murti, a Krishna Saligram from India and a white Lingam. We discovered in October 2010 that Narasimha had manifested itself as picture into the carpet in front of the temple. His head is pointing towards the temple entrance protecting the temple (according to Swami) from evil influences. The temple is surrounded by a temple garden with several deities, ponds and beautiful flowers.

Every morning at 06:00 hrs an abishekam to Radhe Krishna, the Krishna Saligram and puja to Swami's Padukas is performed.Every Saturday they do Abishekam, Lingam healing water and Om-healing. They start the prayers at 16:30 in the afternoon with Abishekam, 18:45 Lingam- healing water, 19:00 pm Om-healing. There is also full moon OM healing once a month. Several times a year they also include a yagna in their Saturday programme. Twice a year one or two swami’s from Shree Peetha Nilaya in Germany are invited to help for larger events such as kalash puja or yagna ceremonies.

The Shanta-Narasimha Temple was inaugarated by Sri Swami Vishwananda on 09 November 2008 at Stanger ,Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa.This aspect of the great 4th incarnation of Lord Vishnu confers peace,calmness and tranquility of mind to the visitor of the temple.He is that aspect of Narasimha that has been garlanded by Bhakta-Prahlad ,thus calming him down,as his ferocity threatened to destroy the world.

In April 2009, Radha-Krishna Govinda Devji which was consecrated and installed at Eshowe by Sri Swami Vishwananda was moved into the temple as well.They brought with them the epitomy of Love and Devotion for and from God.Together these deities welcome worshippers to an experience of unconditional love and to the sustained worship of the Guru.

Omhealing is held at the temple on Mondays, with Satsang on Thursdays and Abishekam for all deities on Saturdays.Atma Kriya courses are taught out of the temple to further enhance the experience of students with Mahavatar Babaji and Sri Swami Vishwananda.
