Sri Varahadev & Sri Advaita Acharya Appearance Day Celebrations

January 28 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A special Sunday program celebrating the appearance day of Sri Varahadev and Sri Advaita Acharya! Arati, Kirtan, Katha and Prasadam

Sri Varaha is Krishna appearing in the extraordinary form of a gigantic boar—gigantic enough to carry the Earth on His tusks. The Lord assumed the form of a boar to lift the drowning planet Earth from the Garbhodaka Ocean with His tusks. The demon Hiryanyaksha had thrown the planet Earth into this ocean, but the Lord stabbed the demon with His tusks and saved the Earth.

Sri Advaita Acharya appeared in fifteenth century Bengal, India, as a teacher of Krishna consciousness. Sri Advaita worshiped Krishna on the banks of the Ganges with Ganges water and Tulasi leaves, crying out and begging for the Lord to come save the suffering souls. In response to Sri Adwaita Acharya’s devotion and compassion, Krishna decided to appear, in the form of His own devotee— Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
