SRILA PRABHUPADA'S APPEARANCE DAY
Time & Location
About This Event
The day just after Sri Krishna Janmashtami is the divine birthday celebration of Krishna’s pure devotee, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder-acharya and spiritual master of ISKCON.
Affectionately known as Srila Prabhupada, he traveled alone from India at an elderly age, taking great risks to bring the teachings of Lord Krishna to the West in 1965. Within a short time, he propounded Vedic thought and wisdom on a massive scale through his travels, lectures, and hundreds of volumes of books. Appreciating his monumental efforts, his disciples and followers celebrate his birthday with deep appreciation and love, recalling how he has touched their lives and given them the treasure of Krishna consciousness, the process to deepen our relationship with God.
Srila Prabhupada’s Vyasa-puja—Honoring of our Spiritual Master Festivities begin at 10am in the temple room with bhajans, followed by appreciations, bhoga offerings, pushpanjali, kirtan and arati, and a lunch prasadam feast. Evening program begins at 6:30pm in Prabhupada’s Palace of Gold.
