Gaura Purnima

Gaura-purnima is the most auspicious appearance day of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

The morning Srimad-Bhagavatam class is given by three leaders of ISKCON.  A grand abhiseka of Gauranga Mahaprabhu is done in the evening. The ecstatic hari-nama sankirtana transports one to the spiritual world.

On Gaura-purnima devotees fast till moon rise. Anukalpa maha-prasada (ekadasi-prasada) is served after moonrise, while regular grain prasada is served on the next day, Jagannatha Misra’s festival which is starting a New Year for all Gaudiya Vaishnavas. This day also marks the last day of the famous holi celebration in vrindavan.
