Janmastami Celebration - The Appearance of Sri Krishna

A beautiful description of the most auspicious occasion of Sri Krishna’s appearance is found in the Bhagavata Purana:On the night Krishna was born, all directions were peaceful. Auspicious stars shone in the sky and rivers flowed full of water, beautifully decorated with blooming lotus flowers. Birds in the forests sang and peacocks danced, the wind blew pleasantly and flowers rained from the sky. Angels and celestial beings rejoiced , offering prayers, dancing and singing. At the seashore there was the sound of mild waves and above the sea the clouds thundered pleasantly while the full moon rose in the sky.Bhagavan Sri Krishna, the revered speaker of the Bhagavad-Gita is described in the authoritative Vedic scriptures and by the self realised sages as being; the Supreme Absolute Truth, the original cause of all causes, the Supreme Person. His activities and pastimes are full of meaning and purpose, all of which reveal the highest Truth.Krishna appeared in this world five thousand years ago, in His original transcendental form, making it possible for us to meditate upon Him and hear His transcendental instructions on how we can come back to Him.We celebrate by meditating on His glories and pastimes, and singing His beautiful holy Names. We would like to invite you to participate in the joyous celebration of Sri Krishna Janmastami. There will be chanting, dancing and feasting.When: Sunday September 2, 5 - 8 pmWhere: Gokula House, 440 Smith St. Collingwood, VICOptional Vegetarian/Vegan meal: $8
