ISKCON Scarborough - Gaura Purnima celebrations - Limited number of devotees can visit the temple on Sunday (28th Mar 2021) from 3 pm to 6 pm!



Hare Krishna!

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

The Gaura Purnima this year is on Sunday March 28th 2021 - 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 the above statements.

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”.


We at ISKCON Scarborough will be celebrating this auspicious event on Sunday - March 28th 2021.
As you are all aware, our temple currently remains closed for the public since April 2020.

However, we have great news!

We will be opening the temple for darshan on the day of Gaura Purnima for a limited period of time from 3 pm to 6 pm on 28th Mar 2021(Sunday).

We will strictly follow the province's guidelines:
  • We will take down your name & contact details when you enter the temple.
  • At any point in time, only a maximum of 10 devotees shall be allowed inside the temple
  • All devotees shall wear a face mask, disinfect the hands at the entrance, stay in marked spots that are separated by 6 feet inside the temple.
As only a limited number of devotees can take darshan during this 3-hour window, we request you to contact Amal Tagore -(please send a text or WhatsApp message to 647-338-2216) before end of day Thursday (25th Mar 2021) with your name, email address, mobile number and the number of members who will be coming with you.

We will then confirm back to you with your timeslot for darshan & other procedures to follow.

As we will be strictly following the health guidelines and as the health of devotees is paramount- only devotees who are healthy and who have been pre-approved by Amal Tagore and the team will be allowed to enter the temple on Sunday.

We apologize for any inconvenience this process may cause.
