Tomorrow is Varaha Dvadashi 08-02-2017

varaha d f ws post 2017

Varahadeva is the boar incarnation Sri Krsna. He assumed the form of a boar to lift the drowning planet earth from the Garbhodaka Ocean with His tusks.

The demon Hiryanyaksa had thrown the planet earth into this ocean, but the Lord stabbed the demon with His tusks and saved the earth. After describing the appearance of the white Boar Incarnation that had appeared during the Svayambhuva devastation, Maitreya next described the red Boar Incarnation that had appeared during the Chakshusha devastation. Maitreya related these pastimes to Vidura in the same manner in which he had heard them long ago when Lord Brahma had narrated them to the demigods.

ISKCON 5oth Anniversary Celebration

ISKCON is gearing up for its 50th anniversary, with plans for celebratory events all over the world throughout 2016.

It all began, of course, in 1965, when A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada was 69 years old.

Leaving his home in Vrindavana, India, he travelled to New York city aboard a cargo steamship to introduce “India’s message of peace and goodwill” to the Western world.

After surviving two heart-attacks, he arrived in the US with just seven dollars and a case of books to his name. The early days were a struggle, but his deep faith and his spiritual message resonated with some young people, who came forward to become his students.

On July 11, 1966, Srila Prabhupada officially registered his International Society for Krishna Consciousness in New York. At the time, he had one small storefront on New York’s Lower East-Side, and a handful of students.

Today, there are nearly four hundred ISKCON centers all over the world, and thousands of ISKCON devotees.

ISKCON is behind some prestigious educational institutions, such as Bhaktivedanta College in Belgium. ISKCON charities such as Food for Life and ISKCON Food Relief Foundation have fed millions of needy and starving people all over the world.

Many highly influential people are now ISKCON devotees, and ISKCON itself is well-respected by governments of some countries. In the UK, for instance, ISKCON devotees have addressed Parliament and been invited to perform the puja at No. 10 Downing Street’s official Diwali event.

For the first time, after the stupendous installation ceremony way back in Feb 2013, the all merciful Lordships will set out in a castle like chariot to bestow their sidelong glances on on-lookers to inundate their lives with divine love and joy. We heartily invite you all to become a participant in this memorable journey and thus be blessed with an opportunity to pull the ropes of Lord’s Rath.

Rath Yatra would be inaugurated by performing Maha Arati and by sweeping the road with gold plated broom. With loud chants of Jay Jagannath, the huge ropes which are tied to the chariots will be pulled. The chariot would then roll through the streets wherein Thousands of people would be waiting en route to welcome the Lord and pull the rope; many witnessing the mega procession from their roof tops. Throughout the journey, the melodious kirtan of Hare Krishna Mahamantra accompanied with mrindanga and kartal (cymbals) will keep everyone enthused. People will chant, sing and dance together for the pleasure of Lord Jagannath. Prasadam will be freely distributed in large quantities. It is one of the biggest display of universal brotherhood under the banner of Lord Jagannath.
