Srila Prabhupada's Disappearance Day

12:16:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , , No comments

The Hare Krishna Temple warmly invites one and all to join us for a reflective afternoon as we observe Srila Prabhupada's Disappearance Day on Saturday, November 1st at 12:00pm. On this day, we reflect on the remarkable pastimes of Srila Prabhupada, the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).

ISKCON is now a worldwide movement and is comprised of more than 350 centres, 60 rural communities, 50 schools and 60 restaurants around the globe. This day will provide a great chance to meditate on what Srila Prabhupada means to us.

As a special treat , ISKCON Toronto will be focusing on the time Srila Prabhupada visited our temple in 1976 and will be showcasing rare photos of Srila Prabhupada in ISKCON Toronto! As these photos are shown, some of Srila Prabhupada’s local disciples will share their experiences and stories with Srila Prabhupada.

Please join us for the festivities that will start at 12:00pm with arati and will continue until approximately 3:00pm followed by a vegetarian feast. While the program officially begins at 12:00pm, a large group of devotees will be gathering to attend mangala arati at the temple (at 4:30am). Following the morning program, video lectures of Srila Prabhupada will be playing in the temple room until 12:00pm.
Please join us as we glorify Srila Prabhupada on this very important day.
