Radhastami 2015

Radhastami 2015

Sri Radhastami is the celebration day of Srimati Radharani’s appearance. Srimati Radharani is the consort of Lord Krishna. She appeared to Vrishabhanu Maharaj (her father) in the village of Raval a fortnight after Krishna’s appearance. On Radhastami, the temple deities are covered entirely in flowers. The day of Radhastami is spent by the devotees in reading the transcendental pastimes of Radharani and her Gopi friends, and her lila pastimes in the groves of Vrindavan with Krishna. Radharani’s is the greatest devotee of Lord Krishna. Krishna therefore loves Her the most. On Her Appearance day, devotees seeking Krishna’s grace will especially ask Her to grant them devotion to Her beloved Lord, knowing that if they can attain Her favor, they can attain His as a natural consequence. Srimati Radharani is the center of all Vrindavan’s activities. In Vrindavan, Krishna is the instrument of Srimati Radharani; therefore all the inhabitants of Vrindavan still chant “Jaya Radhe”. From Krishna’s own statement given herein, it appears that Radharani is the Queen of Vrindavan and that Krishna is simply Her decoration. Krishna is known as Madana Mohana, the enchanter of Cupid, but Srimati Radharani is the enchanter of Krishna. – His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya lila  13.150 purport) Temple Schedule:     Festival continues with bhajans, evening Arati of Sri Sri Radha Govinda with Special Flower dress darshan, a lecture/presentation on the glories of Srimati Radharani, followed by Prasadam Feast.

Srila Prabhupada Vyas Puja 2015

Srila Prabhupada Vyas Puja 2015

This is a very special day for all ISKCON devotees as they joyfully glorify their eternal saviour Srila Prabhupada on His Appearance Day. This celebrated very next day of Janmashtami, which is known as Nanda Utsav. Srila Prabhupada was sent by the Lord to fulfill Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s prediction- Prtvithe ache yata nagaradi grama, sarvatra pracara haibe more nama: In every town and village of the world, My name will be heard. Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakura wrote in his Sajjona-tosani, “Soon there will be a time when the chanting of Krishna’s name will be heard in England, France, Russia, Germany and America.” Srila Prabhupada Appeared on Nanadotsava. Nandotsava means: Nanda Maharaja’s huge festival celebrating Krishna’s birth. Nanda Maharaja dressed in luxurious garments and distributed profuse charity to everyone in his kingdom. He gave away opulent cloth and ornaments and two million richly decorated cows to the brahmanas. Vraja was alive with vibrations of Vedic hymns and beautiful decorations and everyone was experiencing unending happiness. Bursting with bliss, the Vrajavasis expressed their joy by throwing butter, yogurt and ghee all around. In 1986, on that most auspicious spiritual occasion, Srila Prabhupada appeared to fulfill the mission of Lord Krishna. Srila Prabhupada grew up as a pure devotee of the Lord and distributed Krishna Consciousness everywhere. Srila Prabhupada made a perfect appearance, led a perfect life and had a perfect departure. Srila Prabhupada lives forever through his books. This legacy will always provide the devotees with Lord Chaitanya katha and teach everyone to chant the Maha Mantra. Every year, on the day after the Janmastami celebration of Lord Krsna’s Appearance, ISKCON devotees honour the Birthday of their Spiritual Father Srila Prabhupada by chanting, feasting, and especially reading him their heartfelt homages. Devotees fast till noon and glorifies Srila Prabhupada, later there is maha bhoga offering, pushpanjali, aratika for Srila Prabhupada at ISKCON Mira Road.
