ISKCON Scarborough - Gaura Purnima celebrations - March 15th 2020 (Sunday)


Hare Krishna!
Please accept our humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

Gaura Purnima - the auspicious appearance day of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu will be celebrated in a grand manner on Sunday- Mar 15th, 2020 at ISKCON Scarborough.

The actual appearance day falls on Monday - March 9th, 2020 - On this auspicious day, all devotees fast until moonrise.

Gaura Purnima means "golden full moon" signifying that:
1) Lord Caitanya was “born” during a full moon, and
2) The Lord blesses everyone with the soothing, moon-like rays of His sublime teachings.


Who is Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu:


Lord Caitanya is Lord Krsna Himself appearing in the role of His own devotee.

He accepted the mood and golden complexion of Srimati Radharani, His consort and greatest worshiper.

Radha and Krsna became one to reveal the divine love of Goloka Vrindavan to the world.

Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu's most important biographers, such as Shri Vrindavan das Thakur (Caitanya Bhagavat), Shri Murari Gupta (Caitanya Charita Mahakavya), Shri Locana das Thakura (Caitanya Mangal) & Srila Krishnadas Kaviraj (Caitanya Caritamrta) confirm this.

If we are to understand Shri Krishna, we must do so through Lord Caitanya. First the giver, then the gift.

Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu was the most merciful and a munificent incarnation of the Lord, whose mercy surpassed the bounds of mundane discrimination in the matter of caste, colour, and creed.

CC Adi 14.1:
“Things that are very difficult to do become easy to execute if one somehow or other simply remembers Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. But if one does not remember Him, even easy things become very difficult. To this Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, I offer my respectful obeisances”.
