EVENING Sunday Feast in Santa Cruz on March 16th
as it will be Sri Gaura Purnima.
The festival will begin at 6pm.
Dear devotees and friends of the Ashram,
Sri Gaura Purnima, the Appearance of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, will be celebrated on Sunday evening, March 16th. Please note that because Lord Chaitanya appeared at moonrise, there will not be a Sunday Feast at noon.
In case you don't know, this is a very important holiday for our Ashram. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu appeared just five hundred years ago in the Eastern corner of India to inaugurate the dharma for the current age: congregational chanting of the Holy Name of Sri Krishna. Please join our congregation as we chant that Holy Name all together for the satisfaction of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
Yours in the Lord's service,

is always a good time for gaura katha
and hearing Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita
with Janardan Maharaj's occasional comments and stories is a truly amazing way to spiritualize one's day.
If you can connect a USB drive in your car or play MP3 CDs, you can download the classes here
and listen while you drive. Just listening to a few verses a day of gaudiya vaishnava siddhanta
and gaura lila
is wonderful, what to speak of a chapter a day. Click here.
