Janmastami and Prabhupada's Appearance Day

August 9, 2012, Lord Krishna's Appearance Day/Janmastami was joyfully celebrated here in Hilo, Hawaii, Little Nitai Gauranga were bathed in ghee, yogurt, honey, milk (from happy protected for life and milked by hand cows here on Big Island) and water.

August 10 was Srila Prabhupada's Appearance Day!  After reading homages to Srila Prabhupada, the devotees sang and danced before Prabhupada and huge feast first offered to Prabhupada was then enjoyed by all.

COME to FREE Sunday Love Feast (click on menu for more details), where we sing kirtan, hear from Srila Prabhupada directly from his recorded classes and discuss it and honor a delicious prasadam feast.



Tuesday the 12th of April 

was Lord Ramachandra's appearance day

the program at Harinam's house temple began at 5:00 PM 

and the prasadam feast at Sunset made by Kapindra Swami, Saci Suta and Harinam was relishable... Squash tomato bitter melon subji with fresh paneer from Dayal Chandra's happy and protected Krishna cows, Purple potatoes, avocados, tapioca pudding, fresh mango nectar, peanuts and raisins and rich tasty coconut macaroons made with love by Maharani.

We had blissful kirtan, the alter draped with colorful flowers and leaves, watched blissful film of Srila Prabhupada, his walking in his robes along the beach with devotees, his feet covered in sparkling flowers of all kinds, handing out divine finger-fulls of prasadam to devotees kids... we also read about Lord Rama from Prabhupada's original Srimad Bhagavatam and discussed what we heard from Prabhupada together.  We also had encouraging conversation about Prabhupada's farm.  Thank God for Prabhupada and thank Prabhupada for God.  How lucky are we to be together and hear about Krishna from Prabhupada directly.  

All glories to Lord Ramachandra!

 march 19, 2011 was Gaura Purnim!

We celebrated Lord Caitanya & Srila Prabhupada 

with Kirtan, Prabhupada class & discussion and free vegetarian LOVE feast (YUM)!

Gaura Pur-neem - what does that mean?

We celebrated the appearance day or divine birthday of Lord Caitanya.
Krishna came as Radha and Krishna combined as one person Who is Lord Krishna Caitanya or Gaura...
Gaura means Krishna Who has a golden complexion like Srimati Radharani.
Not only is Krishna taking the golden complexion of Radharani but also Her Mood of Divine Mercy 
and Divine Love of God.  So sweet!!!

Krishna Caitanya is eternally present 
but also appeared on earth 500 years ago 
for the benefit of all of us fallen souls in the age of Kali (the age of quarrel and hypocrisy)
to give the easiest and most fun way to spiritual realization... SANKIRTAN! 
Sing, Dance and Eat!
Anyone and Everyone - Sing the holy names of God, dance in ecstasy and share and enjoy krishna prasadam, 
delicious vegetarian food offered to Krishna with LOVE!

of course none of this would be possible 
or have any meaning without His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, 
who reveals true Love of Krishna to us 
through his divine personality, divine example, 
divine voice and divine vibration in the form of his original books, 100's of recorded classes, dvd's & instructions.


His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

and the Disciplic Succession:  Prabhupada's guru's guru's guru...
