A festival celebrated for the pleasure of Lord Sri Narsimha Deva , one of the incarnation of Sri Krishna , the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
Swati is the birth star of Lord Sri Narsimha Deva and this day comes every month.
Narsimha Deva is famous as the protector of devotees and remover of obstacles on the path of devotional service to Lord Sri Krishna.
This Festival is Observed by an offering of Narasimha-Sudarshana Homa, followed by an Abhishekam and Archana of Nava Narasimha Deites.
The Festival of Kirtan “Kirtan Mela” provides a unique opportunity for all people to come together and relish the nectarine chanting of the holy names of Krsna.
This spirit, of offering others the chanting of Hare Krsna as the best method to awaken love for God, is central to Lord Caitanya’s philosophy.
It is also central to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, as envisioned by Srila Prabhupada. By Lord Caitanya’s mercy, “the most sublime and radiant spiritual knowledge” is within the reach of everyone, simply by chanting Hare Krsna and dancing with devotees.
Lord Caitanya wanted everyone to experience the happiness of God consciousness by chanting Hare Krsna.
For the pleasure of our beloved deities Sri Sri Gandharvika-Giridhari and Sri Sri Laksmi-Nrsimha, ISKCON SriNarasimha-Giridhari Mandir organizes the “Festival of Kirtana” the last Sunday of every month.
