Virtual Rama Navami Celebrations Tonight

10:09:00 AM By Vijay Teli

Today (April 2nd) is Rama Navami, the appearance of Lord Rama. Lord Rama is an incarnation of Krishna who appeared in Ayodhya (in current day Uttar Pradesh, India) as the son of King Dasaratha. During Lord Rama’s reign, all the citizens were happy, religious and their necessities of life were provided for. He was a virtuous, charitable and dutiful King. He is particularly known for his victorious battle with the ten-headed demon Ravana, the evil King of Lanka thereby freeing his wife Sita from the demon’s captivity. Through his life, he exemplified heroism, morality and good governance.

Due to COVID19 precautions the Temple remains closed to the public (CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION), as such we will be hosting special virtual celebrations.

Celebrations will conclude tonight when HH Bhaktimarga Swami will give a special Class from 6:30pm - 7:30pm EST. This live class will be broadcast on our Facebook Page "ISKCON Toronto: The Hare Krishna Centre".

To set the mood for this festival from March 30th to April 1st. We hosted dramatic readings from  "RAMAYANA, INDIA'S IMMORTAL TALE OF ADVENTURE, LOVE, AND WISDOM". These readings were facilitated by HH Bhaktimarga Swami and broadcast on our Facebook Page "ISKCON Toronto: The Hare Krishna Centre". Recordings are available here:
