Nityananda Appearance Day Celebrations

– Sunday, February 5, 2012!

Toronto’s Hare Krishna community will be celebrating the advent (appearance) of Lord Nityananda on Sunday, February 5th, 2012! A warm invitation goes out to you and your family to join us as we celebrate this wonderful festival.

Lord Nityananda (also known as Nityananda Prabhu or Nityananda Rama) appeared as Lord Chaitanya’s principal associate for spreading the beautiful and rich movement of bhakti-yoga – devotion to Krishna. He especially spread the chanting of the names of Lord Krishna throughout Bengal. He is considered an incarnation of Lord Balarama, Lord Krishna’s brother and best servant.

The festival has traditionally been a very sweet experience for

our community and will also feature a special kirtan experience
(Nama-Yajna) from 4pm to 6pm, before the festival.
The festival schedule is as follows (subject to change):
4:00pm to 6:00pm – Special Nama-Yajna – Two Hour Kirtan
6:00pm to 6:30pm – Kirtan (Arati)
6:30pm to 6:40pm – Welcome & Announcements
6:40pm to 8:00pm – Special Presentation
