‘The best time and place is Mayapur on Lord Caitanya’s Appearance Day.That is not only the best for me but for everyone. Mayapur is meant for that. If possible all devotees from all our centers should go..”* – Srila Prabhupada, Letter to Tamala Krishna, 20 July 1973
Srila Prabhupada especially desired that all ISKCON devotees from all over the world visit Sridhama Mayapur for the annual Sri Gaura Purnima festival.
Since 1972, this annual ISKCON Mayapur Gaura Purnima festival has been taking place every year between the months of February and March. Devotees and visitors from all over the globe come to take part in the festivities and become spiritually enlivened, enthused, and uplifted.
The mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu has reached the far corners of the world, but it is especially available and tangible in His eternal home of Sridhama Mayapur. Everyone is invited and encouraged to come to the Mayapur Gaura Purnima Festival 2019!
