At New Talavan, virtually all of the flowers we use for our daily deity worship are grown on site. It’s an ecstatic service, but it’s a lot of work, too! We have some dedicated devotees who maintain the flower gardens, as well as a couple of very steadfast matajis (namely Haridhvani Devi Dasi and Prsni Devi Dasi) who make the garlands every morning practically without fail. 

The temple and deities would not be nearly as beautiful without these devotees’ regular, wonderful devotional service.
