Gaura Purnima 2016

hidef8

Dear All,

Hare Krishna !! Pranaams !!

With great pleasure we invite you for Gaura Purnima (Appearance day of Lord Chaitanya) on March 23rd 2016.

Lord Krishna taught Bhagavad-gita to liberate all souls, and He returned as Sri Caitanya to show us how to live by the Gita’s teachings. Because spiritual realization is difficult in the present age, Krishna as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu made pure love of God attainable by the easy process of chanting His sacred names, as in the maha-mantra:”Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare”

He was also sometimes referred to by the names Gaura (Sanskrit for ‘golden’), due to his fair complexion, and Nimai due to his being born underneath a Neem tree and as a protection against evil influences.
