Gaura Purnima Celebrations Next Week!

On Tuesday, March 10th, 2009, Toronto's Hare Krishna temple will be celebrating the Appearance Day of Lord Caitanya in grand fashion!  Lord Caitanya is none other than Lord Krishna Himself.  

Over 500 years ago, in a special appearance, Lord Krishna personally came as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and acted as His own devotee. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krishna Himself, saturated with the love for Him that Radha embodies. As the emblem of the perfect devotee of Krishna, He displayed feelings of the highest spiritual ecstasy.

Gaura Purnima is the celebration of the appearance of Lord Caitanya and it is always one of the largest festivals at Toronto's Hare Krishna temple!  We are very excited to announce that HH Bhaktimarga Swami will be attending our celebrations and will be presenting a very special dramatic piece that is not to be missed!  There will also be a very special abhisheka that will take place that will have some surprises!

Although festivities fall on a Tuesday evening, we would like to extend a very warm invitation to you and your family to join us as we celebrate this wonderful festival!
