Nrsimha Caturdasi festival in Germany

Posted April 28, 2003

Devotees at Sri Narasimha Ksetra (Jandelsbrunn, Bavaria) cordially invite all Vaishnavas to the Sri Nrsimha Caturdasi Maha Mahotsava, to be held from May 15 through May 18, 2003. The celebration will include special homas and pujas performed for the Lord's pleasure and also much Hari Katha.

This year's festival includes an abhiseka ceremony in which all devotees can participate, using 108 especially crafted silver kalashas, to bathe Narasimhadeva. Devotees also plan to offer 108 dipas to Lord Narasimhadeva in a special puja where sponsors can offer their individual dipas to the Lord. To offer one dipa to the Lord on Narasimha-Mahotsava confers a benefit equal to 1000 asvamedha yajnas.

Devotees may keep a silver kalasha for a donation of 108 Euros, or a silver dipa (25 Euros) to use in their daily worship at home. Kalashas and dipas are handcrafted by Amaraprabhu das.

To help defray the cost of the festival, we ask a donation of 28 Euros for ISKCON members, or 38 Euros for others. Our address is: Zielberg 20, 94118 Jandelsbrunn, Bayern, Germany. Telephone 0049/8583 316. For a detailed festival schedule and for accomodation contact: prahladnrsimha@hotmail.com
