We would like to invite you to join us for Gaura Purnima celebration this Sunday, February 28, 2010 from 10.30 AM onwards!
Gaura Purnima means “golden full moon,” signifying that:
1) Lord Chaitanya was “born” during a full moon, and
2) The Lord blesses everyone with the soothing, moonlike rays of His sublime teachings.
Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krishna Himself, appearing as His own devotee, to teach us that we can gain full enlightenment simply by chanting the holy names of the Lord:
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare
The schedule is as follows:
10.30AM to 10.45AM: Guru Puja
10.45AM to 11.15AM: Abhisheka (bathing ceremony of Sri Sri Gaura Nitai)
11.15AM to 12 noon: Class on appearance of Lord Chaitanya
12 noon - 12.30PM: Arati
On this auspicious day, it is recommended to fast until moon rise
