July 26th, an evening of high spirits and high expectations! ‘The Festival of Kirtans’ – a festival dedicated for glorifying the holy name of Lord, was initiated by the ISKCON HBR Layout a year back. This event indeed was a special one! The nicely decorated temple was flooded with vibrant and enthusiastic devotees who had come to participate in the Festival of Kirtan. The atmosphere was more blissful and spellbound by the presence of His Holiness Bakthi Charu Maharaj, a disciple of Srila Prabupada. Maharaj conveyed his best wishes and congratulated the temple management for initiating such wonderful program. His Holiness gave a lecture on the glories of the holy name of the Lord. He very clearly explained how Lord is our Father and compared the four Yuga’s as the four sons of the Lord with different qualification the first son was compared to Satya Yuga, the most qualified son, the second to the Thretha Yuga and the third son to Dwapara Yuga and the fourth and the most sick son was compared to the Kali Yuga, who had no qualification but have all the mercy of the Lord our Father. Maharaj emphasized on making use of this opportunity of unlimited mercy of the Lord to go back to his abode. This was followed by a magical kirtan lead by His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaj. The devotees enjoyed and actively participated in the nectarian melody of Maharaj’s Kirtan. The day ended with sumptuous prasadam. Almost everyone of the devotees where charged-up and completely enlivened after the wonderful kirtan. Many shared their experience, we are happy to post the experience of Bh. Bharath prabhu herewith
I feel so indebted to Sri Gandharvika for allowing me to serve so closely to Her beloved Lord Giridhari and His devotees..
Today was another blissful day in Sri Giridhari Mandir. HH Sri Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaj visited Sri Giridhari Mandir. Maharaj spoke about the importance of human life and kind gesture of Mahaprabhu in kaliyuga. Maharaj also explained the joy of distributing Krsna to others.
Giridhari Hall was packed with hundreds of devotees to listen the ecstatic kirtana of Maharaja. Those two hours were out of this universe..
I was so close to Maharaj, He is so kind and so humble. Sweet and charismatic..
Maharaj bestowed his blessings and best wishes to all the devotees and well wishers of Sri Narasimha Giridhari Mandir to become more and more empowered in distributing the holy names and bringing more and more souls to the shelter of Giridhari.
It was a magical evening! Filling the hearts of all the devotees..
