Nrsimha Caturdasi Yagna Video

11:56:00 AM By Vijay Teli

On Wednesday, May 6, 2020, ISKCON Toronto celebrated Nrsimha Caturdasi (The Appearance Day of Lord Nrsimha). Lord Nrsimhadeva is one of Lord Krishna’s wondrous incarnations, in the form of half-man and half-lion. He descended to protect his young devotee Sri Prahlada Maharaja from his torturous father, King Hiranyakashipu. As the Temple remains closed to the public, festivities were conducted virtually.  If you missed the live broadcast you can view the video of the Fire Sacrifice Ceremony (Yagna/Havan) conducted for the blessings of Lord Nrsimhadeva.
