Posted June 5, 2003
We had an extraordinary festival of Nrishimha Caturdasi in Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir on May 15th 2003, Pictures from this transcendental event are on our website. Ugra Nrishimhadeva is a very active Deity in Mayapur and protects the Preaching of Krishna Consciousness and the devotees around the world, thousands of devotees come to Mayapur for this celebration.
We had also a very special Yajna in the morning for this ocassion (the day before devotees go in procession to the ganges to bring water for the abhisheka. Today afternoon we started with oil abhisheka at 3:00pm (altar closed) and than at 5:00 pm we started abhisheka with open altar for the public (inlcuding TV projecting this abhisheka live, monitors were located in many places of our temple) offering products like milk, juices, honey, flowers and all the other products as per the sastras and tradition giving the best possible for this special event to Sri Sri Prahlada Nrishimhadeva Bhagavan. At the end we offer bhoga to the Lord and than aratik.
