11:39:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , , , , , , , No comments

Gaura Purnima celebrations are less than 48 hours away and devotees at Toronto's Hare Krishna temple are preparing for an unforgettable Tuesday night festival!  HH Bhaktimarga Swami, who will be attending Gaura Purnima festivities here for the first time in many years (he is normally in India at this time of year) will be pulling a very special treat from his bag of spiritual magic tricks.

Collaborating with a recently-formed kirtan yoga band, Gaura-Shakti, Maharaj will be presenting a special dramatic version of Lord Caitanya's famous Siksastakam prayers.  Following that, devotees will witness a Maha-Abhiseka which will feature some surprises that you will not want to miss!

The official schedule is as follows (subject to change):
6:00pm to 6:30pm - Arati
6:30pm to 6:40pm - Welcome & Announcements
6:40pm to 7:00pm - Class by HH Bhaktimarga Swami
