On Saturday, April 28, New Vrindaban will observe a traditional holiday, celebrating the divine appearance of Sri Nrsimhadeva the half-man half-lion avatar of Lord Vishnu.
The appearance of Sri Nrsimhadeva has been observed for millennia in India and is now celebrated world-wide. His story is beautifully told in the sacred text Srimad Bhagavatam. Traditionally, bhakti-yogis honor Sri Nrsimhadeva as the protector of His devotees and the remover of all obstacles and difficulties on the path of devotion.
The evening will feature a talk by a special guest and include a line-up of wonderful kirtan leaders, a drama, a beautiful traditional ceremonial bathing (abhishek) of the form of Sri Nrsimha and an amazing vegetarian feast served to all guests. Seeing as New Vrindaban worships Lord Nrsimhadev, there is always a special dramatic rendition of His appearance including special effects—not to be missed!
