Sri Krsna Janmastami
The auspicious day of the appearance of Lord Krsna is celebrated all over the world as Sri Krsna Janmastami. It is celebrated on the eighth day of the Krsna Paksha (waning moon) of the month of Shravana. Krsna, who is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, appeared in Mathura as the son of Vasudeva and Devaki.

In Bhagavad Gita 4.8, Lord Krsna teaches the reason to his descend:

paritranaya sadhunam
vinasaya ca duskrtam
sambhavami yuge yuge

To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear millennium after millennium.

In Bhagavad Gita 4.9, Lord Krsna teaches us how to get out of this wheel of misery

janma karma ca me divyam
evam yo vetti tattvatah
tyaktva deham punar janma
naiti mam eti so 'rjuna

One who knows the transcendental nature of My appearance and activities does not, upon leaving the body, take his birth again in this material world, but attains My eternal abode, O Arjuna.

The Appearance day of Srila Prabhupada 

In 1896, on the day following Janmastami, His Divine Grace, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada was born in Calcutta, India. In the Vaishnava calendar, this day is also known as Nandotsava: the day that Nanda Maharaja, Krishna’s father, prepared a grand festival to celebrate the birth of his son.

As founder-acarya of ISKCON, Srila Prabhupada plays a central role in the life of all ISKCON devotees. Everyone connected to ISKCON knows that without Srila Prabhupada’s courage and his unmotivated love and compassion to all the residents of the world, we would not have had the opportunity to intimately serve Lord Krishna.

We invite you, your family and your friends to join us for the grand celebrations coming Monday night from 10 pm onwards at ISKCON Scarborough.
