Gaura Purnima celebrations at ISKCON Belfast

Dear all

We would like to invite you and your family to this year’s Gaura Purnima festival that will take place on Wednesday 23 of March. The festival celebrates the appearance of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who is the Supreme Person, Krishna Himself, appearing as His own devotee. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu taught that anyone—regardless of background or spiritual qualification—could develop their innate love of God and experience great spiritual pleasure simply by chanting the Hare Krishna mantra:

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare
