ISKCON Scarborough - Srimati Sita Devi's appearance day and upcoming Mother's day celebrations‏

Hare Krishna!

Please accept our humble obeisances!

Friday - 2nd May 2014: 

Srimati Sita Devi's (Consort of Lord Sri Rama) appearance day anniversary falls on May 1st 2014(Thursday).

At ISKCON Scarborough we will be celebrating this wonderful event on Friday May 2nd 2014

Srimati Sita Devi is an eternal consort of Lord Ramachandra.

She is known to be the daughter of Bhumidevi, the goddess of earth. In Treta-yuga, she appeared to King Janaka in Mithila while he was ploughing the earth.

King Janaka who was the ruler of Janakapuri was childless. When Janaka Maharaj was ploughing a piece of land he unearthed a golden casket in which he found a beautiful girl baby. A land ploughed by the yoke is called 'Sita', and so he named the baby as Sita.

She was later married to Lord Ramachandra and joined him when he was banished to the Dandakarnaya forest. Despite being kidnapped by the demom King Ravana, she remained faithful to Lord Rama, who eventually killed Ravana. She had two illustrious sons Luv and Kush.

She is addressed by several names such as Maithili (princess of Mithila), Janaki (daughter of Janaka), Rama (wife of Lord Ram), etc. She is a central figure in the Ramayana and an embodiment of qualities such as chastity, forgiveness, self-discipline, simplicity and gratitude. Srimati Sita Devi is also the manifestation of the goddess of fortune. On her auspicious appearance day, devotees can aspire for Their Lordships Sita Rama to bestow sincere devotional service and qualities upon them.
