The Toronto Hare Krishna temple is gearing up for grand celebrations this weekend as we get ready to celebrate Gaura-Purnima on the evening of Saturday, March 19th!

Gaura Purnima celebrates the appearance anniversary of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It is observed annually by Krishna devotees all over the world — especially in the area of Mayapur, India, the place where He appeared in the year 1486.

As a special treat, devotees have a chance to sponsor one of the aratis (offerings, accompanied by chanting) during this Saturday's program. The two main aratis will be at 6pm and 8pm and you are welcome to sponsor one of the three altars during one of the aratis!
