Gaur Purnima or Appearance Day of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was celebrated amidst great festivities and enthusiasm by the devotees of ISKCON Punjabi Bagh. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who is the mercy incarnation of Supreme Lord Krishna, appeared on the planet around 530 years ago and freely distributed love of Godhead to everyone without any discrimination.
The sankirtan started around 3.30pm from the temple, with hundreds of ecstatic devotees submerged in the waves of holy name. The procession passed through the streets of Punjabi Bagh and reached the venue of celebration, Natha Singh Vatika.
The programme started with Abhishek of the Lordships whose beauty left the audience spellbound. This was followed by a cultural program, where children of Hare Krishna Sunday School displayed their amazing talents being employed in the service of the lordships. The deities were dressed in the new festival outfits and were offered Sringar Aarti where the devotees prayed to the most munificent of all incarnations, Lord Chaitanya and Lord Nityananada, to appear in their hearts and bestow them with topmost perfection of life i.e. love of Godhead. The programme ended with grand prasadam feast for everyone.
The joy and smile on each & everyone’s face vividly depicted that how much they enjoyed being part of the festival and rendering their services.
