Lord Nrsimha's Appearance Day Celebrations

12:11:00 AM By Vijay Teli , , , 3 comments

On Thursday, May 7th 2009, Toronto's Hare Krishna temple will be celebrating Nrsimha Caturdasi. This is the appearance day of Lord Nrsimhadeva, Krishna’s half-man half-lion incarnation. Lord Nrsimhadeva appeared in order to deliver the saintly child Prahlada from the persecutions of his father, Hiranyakashipu.

This year festivities will feature enlivening classes by special guest HG Brhat Mrdanga das. There will also be a special Sunday Feast on May 10th to celebrate this festival!

Schedule for Thursday May 7th 2009 (subject to change):
6:00pm - Arati
6:30pm - Class by HG Brhat Mrdanga das
7:30pm - Abhisheka and reading of Nrsimha Kavacha Mantras
8:00pm - Arati
8:30pm - Prasadam (Free Vegetarian Feast)

Although festivities fall on a Thursday evening, we would like to extend a very warm invitation to you and your family to join us as we celebrate this wonderful festival! Also, be sure to attend the special Sunday Feast on May 10th for more festivities!
