Siva Ratri Celebrations This Sunday!

10:50:00 AM By RG


This Sunday, February 18, 2018, Toronto's Hare Krishna Temple will be celebrating Siva Ratri.*

Siva Ratri literally translates as “the Night of Lord Siva.” Lord Siva is described as “the greatest Vaishnava (devotee of Lord Krishna)"; as such, this week's Sunday Feast will be dedicated to honouring Lord Siva.

The tentative schedule is as follows:

6:00pm to 6:30pm - Arati
6:30pm to 6:35pm - Welcome and Announcements
6:35pm to 7:15pm - Class by HG Rupanuga das
7:15pm to 7:30pm - Abhisheka (bathing ceremony) for Lord Siva
7:30pm to 8:00pm - Vegetarian Feast (Prasadam)
8:00pm to 8:30pm - Arati


*Please note that the actual day of Siva Ratri was on Wednesday, February 14, but the festival will be celebrated at the temple on Sunday, February 18.
