Please accept our humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!
Narasimha Caturdasi is the celebration of the appearance day of Lord Narasimhadev, a direct incarnation of the Lord in His half-man, half-lion form. Lord Narasimhadev appeared to protect his dear most devotee, Prahlada Maharaja, whose demonic father, Hiranyakasipu was a powerful atheist and enemy of the Lord.
Lord Narasimhadev is Lord Krishna Himself, appearing especially in this form to reciprocate with our desire to remove all the obstacles in our devotional service.
Srimad Bhagavatam 5.18.8:
The Prayers Offered to the Lord by the Residents of Jambudvipa “I offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Narasimhadev, the source of all power. O my Lord who possesses nails and teeth just like thunderbolts, kindly vanquish our demon like desires for fruitive activity in this material world. Please appear in our hearts and drive away our ignorance so that by Your mercy we may become fearless in the struggle for existence in this material world”.
Special Narasimha Yagna:
On the actual appearance day, we will be performing a grand Narasimha Yagna at ISKCON Scarborough starting at 6 pm.
However, due to the current COVID restrictions, we will not be able to open the doors for devotees to physically participate in this Yagna.
We currently have over 70 devotees registered to participate virtually in this special Yagna.
If you would like to participate in this Yagna virtually, please contact Mother Dwaraka - 416-899-1733 between 6 pm to 9 pm until 24th May 2021.
The devotees who sponsor the Yagna will be sent a special link to watch the Yagna live on Tuesday from 6 pm onwards as well as special remnants from the Yagya (Holy ash, Mauli(red/yellow thread), Ganga water from the Khalash etc) will be delivered to the sponsors.
