On the ceiling of the temple room is a newly painted 'lotus mandala.' In the centre of the lotus is written 'Om Gayatri muralista kirttana dhanam Radhapadam dhimahi;' in the second ring is written 'Om tad Visnu paramam padam sada pasyanti surayoh diviva chaksur atatam,' while the Maha-mantra is painted in the third, outer ring.

The Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Ashram in Oregon held a happy evening programme for Sri Radhastami, with an enthusiastic group of over thirty guests in attendance. Mathuranath Prabhu headed the festival with discourse and chanting.
