ISKCON Scarborough- Gaura Purnima Festival- Sunday March 12th 2017

Hare Krishna!

Please accept our humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

Gaura Purnima - the auspicious appearance day of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu will be celebrated in a grand manner coming Sunday - March 12th, 2017 at ISKCON Scarborough.

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu will be honored through an interactive joint presentation that will include narration, bhajan, and dance by Bhaktimarga Swami, Gaura-Shakti Kirtan group and Syamesvari respectively.

Gaura Purnima means "golden full moon," signifying that:
1) Lord Caitanya appeared during a full moon, and
2) The Lord blesses everyone with the soothing, moon like rays of His sublime teachings.

Who is Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu:
Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu's most important biographers, such as Shri Vrindavan das Thakur (Caitanya Bhagavat), Shri Murari Gupta (Caitanya Charita Mahakavya), Shri Locana das Thakur (Caitanya Mangal) & Shri Krishnadas Kaviraj (Caitanya Caritamrta) confirm that Lord Caitanya is Krshna Himself appearing in the role of His own devotee.
He accepted the mood and golden complexion of Srimati Radharani, His consort, and greatest worshiper.
Radha and Krsna became one to reveal the divine love of Goloka Vrindavan to the world.
If we are to understand Shri Krsna, we must do so through Lord Caitanya. First the giver, then the gift.
Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu is the most merciful and munificent incarnation of the Lord, whose mercy surpassed the bounds of mundane discrimination in the matter of caste, color, and creed.

CC Adi 14.1:
“Things that are very difficult to do become easy to execute if one somehow or other simply remembers Lord Caitanya Mah├Ąprabhu. But if one does not remember Him, even easy things become very difficult. To this Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu I offer my respectful obeisances”.

Please note: Devotees fast until moon rise on this day. However, Ekadasi prasadam will be served for anyone with health issues.
