W ith the raising of Garuda and Hanuman flag, officially the Gaura Purnima festival has begun in Mayapur. Speaking in the inaugural ceremony HH Bhakti Charu Swami spoke about how Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakura and Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur began the real revival of Lord Caitanya’s pastime places and His teachings all over the world. That prediction of Lord Caitanya, that “prithvite achecjato nagaradi gram, sarvatra prachar hoibe mura naam” – my holy name will be broadcasted all the towns and villages all over the world. Even 60 years ago, it was thought to be impossible but now we can see how that prediction is fulfilled by Lord Caitanya’s senapati bhatia Srila Prabhupada. He made amazing arrangement by establishing International Society for Krishna Consciousness to continue the fulfillment of that prediction and by instituting such wonderful festivals like Mayapur and Vrindavan festivals.
By going on parikrama, by visiting pastime places,one will recognize the identity of Lord Caitanya and then realize Mahaprabhu pastimes.
From today, free festival prasad for devotees has started. Today’s breakfast and lunch prasada sponsor is HH Jayapataka Swami.
Today is also the Adivas ceremony of Kirtan Mela which begins from 5th March to 8th March.
