On Wednesday, May 26th 2010, 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.

The festivities will begin at 6pm and feature an abhisheka (bathing ceremony) of Lord Nrsimha, an enlivening discourse on his appearance as well as amazing kirtan! The schedule for the evening will be as follows:

6:00-6:35pm: Arati and Nrsimha Pranam
6:35-6:40pm: Welcome and Announcements
