Jubilant devotees greet new Mayapura Deities

Here are pictures from the Adivas ceremony of the Deities of Sri Panca Tattva Bhagavan in Mayapur.

The experience is unique, and devotees were astonished when they saw Their Lordships for the first time. Many commented on how their faith is growing more and more in Krsna consciousness and in Sri Sri Gaur Nitai, since all could feel the powerful and transcendental shakti here in Mayapura Dham when Their Lordships offered their First Darsan. Most agreed that now it is like a new era in ISKCON with a great future for the Society and family founded by His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada.

We really would have liked for all the Vaishnavas from around the world to have been here for this transcendental celebration of the Installation of the life-size Deities of Panca Tattva, but since that is not possible, we will do our best to broadcast all the events so you all can have the asociation of the Dham and the transcendental activities.

Every night there is a Maha Kirtan in the Panca Tattva temple, led by devotees including Aindra das prabhu from Vrndavan. The environment is simply amazing and unique.

Today we also celebrated the dissapearance day of HH Tamal Krsna Goswami with homages by his godbrothers and disciples at his Samadhi; devotees went to the Ganges (Jal Yatra) for bringing water for the preparation of the Abhisheka to Srila Prabhupada tomorrow in the Samadhi.

At the main stage from 4:00 pm, disciples of Srila Prabhupada talked about their asociation with Srila Prabhupada, and at 4:30 pm we had a Nitya Homa ( Fire Sacrifice for donor sponsors).

I apologize for not sending more reports since we all here are engaged in various services for the pleasure of Srila Prabhupada, Sri Sri Radha Madhava, Sri Sri Panca Tattva and Sri Sri Prahlada Nrishimhadeva, the better to serve all the devotees from the world over, especially those visiting Mayapur for this festival. Please visit for more details.
