ISKCON Scarborough - Special program coming Sunday

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

We are honoured to invite you and your family to ISKCON Scarborough coming Sunday (9th Feb) to celebrate 2 wonderful events - Appearance day celebrations of Lord Varahadev and Lord Nityananda Prabhu.

Varaha Dvadasi:
Dvadasi is the twelfth day of the waning or waxing moon.
Varahadev is Krishna's boar incarnation. He assumed the form of a boar to lift the drowning planet Earth from the Garbhodaka Ocean with His tusks. The demon Hiryanyaksha had thrown the planet Earth into this ocean, but the Lord killed the demon and saved the Earth.
The actual Appearance day anniversary of Lord Varahadev (Varaha Dvadasi) falls on Thursday- 6th Feb 2020 and the fasting will be observed one day before on Wednesday - 5th Feb 2020 during Bhaimi Ekadasi.

Nityananda Trayodasi:
Trayodasi is the thirteenth day of the waning or waxing moon.
Lord Nityananda Prabhu, whose name literally means, “eternally blissful”, appeared around 1474 AD in the village of Ekachakra, near Mayapur, West Bengal.
He is the eternal companion of Lord Caitanya and both are worshipped together as Lord Krishna and Lord Balaram. In the same way that Lord Balaram is considered the original spiritual master, so is Lord Nityananda.
Lord Caitanya is the most merciful incarnation of Lord Krishna, but Lord Nityananda, however, is even more merciful and compassionate than Lord Caitanya.
No service is too small to go unnoticed by Lord Nityananda, and no sinner too bad not to qualify for his benedictions. Lord Nityananda gives the mercy to understand and approach Lord Caitanya, who in turn gives the mercy to approach Srimati Radharani, who blesses us with love of Krishna. So, the worship of Lord Nityananda is most important to Gaudiya Vaishnavas seeking the mercy of Radha-Krishna.
The actual Appearance day anniversary of Lord Nityananda Prabhu falls on Friday- 7th Feb 2020. Fasting is until noon on this day.
