Who wants to help to organize Govardhana Puja?

 

Dear devotees, well-wishers and friends of the Hare Krsna Center Montreal!

 

Please accept my most humble obeisances at your lotus feet

 

All glories to the most beautiful acarya of all acaryas His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada!

 

 

 

The month of Karttika is getting more and more ecstatic and with so many of you taking up the process of japa and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books and visiting the temple on daily basis, we would like to invite you to take even more active part and kindly help us to organize the most ecstatic celebration of the Govardhana Puja festival for the pleasure of our beloved most enchanting and loveable Lord Sri Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

 

First of all, we should understand the seriousness of this celebration. Although certainly a very happy and jovial transcendental party where devotees can meet and serve together, every transcendental festival mentioned in the Bhaktivedanta Lives In Sound Society Vaisnava Calendar published on our website, is also an opportunity to please the Lord and acquire His special mercy. For any aspiring devotee, it is essential to take part in celebrating the Lord’s different festivals throughout the year. In fact, it is not only essential but some of the Vedic scriptures give a hint that failing to do so is actually an offense to the Lord. In the supplementary Vedic literature, there is a mention of a list of 32 offenses in the matter of serving the Lord. Number two offense is stated as follows: One should not fail to observe the various festivals for the pleasure of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, such as Janmastami, Ratha-yatra, etc. Srila Prabhupada quotes this in his Nectar of devotion in Ch.8. A sincere devotee will carefully take note of this. In fact, anyone with just a little sincerity and an open mind must feel what we all feel when associating with like-minded devotees and glorifying the Lord together- the feeling of home, security and non-judgmental, freedom-based, open-minded atmosphere. So it is not a question of force, but a spontaneous outburst of natural desire to take part in such festivity. But for those who feel weak and overwhelmed by the strong force of the material energy, Lord Krsna gives a stern warning and that especially in regards to the celebration of the Govardhana Puja, in the 10th Canto, 24th chapter of the Srimad Bhagavatam:

 

 

 

eso 'vajanato martyan

 

kama-rupi vanaukasah

 

hanti hy asmai namasyamah

 

sarmane atmano gavam

 

 

 

(Bhag. 10.24.37)

 

 

 

"One who neglects the worship of Govardhana-puja, as I am personally conducting it, will not be happy. There are many snakes on Govardhana Hill, and persons neglecting the prescribed duty of Govardhana-puja will be bitten by these snakes and killed. In order to assure the good fortune of the cows and themselves, all people of Vrndavana near Govardhana must worship the hill, as prescribed by Me."

 

 

 

As you might know already every temple of Srila Prabhupada whether big or small is a direct expansion of the city of Vrndavana and as such it is duty of all the people of Montreal and also Vinodol in Slovakia to come and help us to celebrate the Lord on this auspicious day of Govardhana Puja. At least those who have a little faith and do not take Lord Krsna as an imaginary or mythological figure should take these statements of the Vedic literatures very seriously and come and take part.  

 

 

 

In case you belong to such a group of faithful lovers of Krsna and are indeed awaiting the Govardhana Puja with great eagerness, Lord Krsna in the very same literature gives direct instructions on how to perform this festival. He says:

 

 

 

 

 

pacyantam vividhah pakah

 

supantah payasadayah

 

samyavapupa-saskulyah

 

sarva-dohas ca grhyatam

 

 

 

huyantam agnayah samyag

 

brahmanair brahma-vadibhih

 

annam bahu-gunam tebhyo

 

deyam vo dhenu-daksinah

 

 

 

anyebhyas casva-candala-

 

patitebhyo yatharhatah

 

yavasam ca gavam dattva

 

giraye diyatam balih

 

 

 

 

 

SB 10.24.26-28

 

 

 

 

 

"Prepare very nice foods of all descriptions from the grain and ghee collected for the yajna. Prepare rice, dal, then halava, pakora, puri and all kinds of milk preparations, such as sweet rice, rabri, sweetballs, sandesa, rasagulla and laddu, and invite the learned brahmanas who can chant the Vedic hymns and offer oblations to the fire. The brahmanas should be given all kinds of grain in charity. Then decorate all the cows and feed them well. After performing this, give money in charity to the brahmanas. As far as the lower animals are concerned, such as the dogs, and the lower grades of people, such as the candalas, or the fifth class of men, who are considered untouchable, they also may be given sumptuous prasadam. After nice grasses have been given to the cows, the sacrifice known as Govardhana-puja may immediately begin. This sacrifice will very much satisfy Me."

 

 

 

(KB 24: Worshiping Govardhana Hill)

 

 

 

Here’s further instruction from His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the top most acarya of recent times on how to celebrate the Govardhana Puja and we shall take inspiration from these invaluable instructions:

 

 

 

Prabhupada: Vegetarian food is very nice. We can give you vegetable menu, three hundred items at least.

 

Dai Nippon representative: Three hundred?

 

Prabhupada: Three hundred. Simply grains, fruits, and butter, that's all, and sugar. You give us these four items and we give you three hundred items. Yes. There is a ceremony in India, annakuta, Govardhana-puja. So in that ceremony, in each and every temple they prepare as many varieties as possible. Some of them prepare three thousand.

 

Dai Nippon representative: Three thousand.

 

Prabhupada: Yes. For weeks they prepare. And the competition is the more items the temple prepares, he becomes... [break] And distribution, prasada distribution, free of charges. It was a very nice system that nobody should remain hungry. That is the system. If there is any temple in any neighborhood, in that neighborhood nobody should remain hungry.

 

 

 

Conversation with Dai Nippon --  April 22, 1972, Tokyo

 

 

 

This Dipabali function can be observed on 21st October, and Prasad can be distributed on the 22nd October, during daytime, which is known as Govardhana Puja and Annakuta Ceremony. In India, in all Vaisnava temples, this ceremony is observed and 100's of people are given Prasad according to the capacity of the temple.

 

 

 

Letter to: Hansadutta  --  Seattle 10 October, 1968

 

 

 

Yes, this Govardhana puja is a bona fide procedure, but such things cannot be held in your country. It requires good space to decorate the imitation hill of rice. So when we offer such hill of rice, there must be other things also -- a hill of capatis and other things. It is a huge affair. In India practically in all the Visnu temples this is observed and they spend huge amounts for this purpose and they distribute prasadam to thousands and everyone gathers to take even a little portion of it. If you can introduce this Govardhana puja, I have no objection, but it requires hard labor, good management and much money also. But the process is bona fide.

 

 

 

Letter to: Damodara  --  Nairobi, Kenya 3 October, 1971

 

 

 

 

 

The effect of celebrating this festival is beyond our scope to understand as stated in the following quote:

 

 

 

 

 

From your report I can understand that you are very enthusiastic. I like also your idea of celebrating Govardhana puja. This should be our programme to attract the general mass of people. If we go on preaching vigorously as we have been for another 25 year then all these other so called religions will disappear. After all what do they have to offer. In the Christian religion all we see is Christ's picture as he was crucified, so how people can be attracted to such thing? There is no science, philosophy, music, art, Prasadam, it is no wonder that the people are rejecting this nonsense. Not that Christ himself was nonsense, but those who are preaching in his name they are nonsense because they do not follow even the simplest of his orders. "Thou shalt not Kill.'' I have met with so many Christians and when I ask them why Christians are killing they cannot answer. The first principle of spiritual life is non violence. They will say Killing in this matter means actually Murder, but accepting even this argument, it means that the society in which Christ was preaching were composed of Murderers, so what kind of men they were, and practically we see it is a fact that because they murdered Lord Jesus Christ. At any rate there is nothing in the world thAT CAN COMPARE WITH our Movement of Chanting and dancing. So Chant dance and when you get tired take Prasadm, this is our actual solid preaching work all over the world.

 

 

 

Letter to: Bhakta dasa  --  Bhaktivedanta Manor 3 August, 1973

 

 

 

 

 

Therefore please do not delay and contact us immediately if you want to take part in the celebration and also organization of this festival and I promise you lots of realization and advancement in your Krsna consciousness by engaging in practical devotional service for the pleasure of the Lord in the association of devotees. These are the possible ways how to help(please do not hesitate to come up with new ideas!):

 

 

 

  1. donations of cooking ingredients such as rice, dhal, ghee, butter, sugar, vegetables, milk, flour, semolina, fruits, flowers for Lord Caitanya alter, etc.

  2. donations in cash

  3. helping out with propagation of the festival in the streets of Montreal(printing flyers, hanging posters, advertising on FB or other internet websites

  4. helping out in the kitchen on Monday

  5. helping out with temple decorations

  6. helping out with cleaning, pot washing etc

  7. helping out with shopping for the ingredients.

  8. inviting friends and family members to take part in the festival

     

     

     

     

    You can reach us either by email, by phone or you can talk to us in person during your visits in the Center. All the organization must be clarified before Sunday the 30th of October.

     

    PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND THE UPCOMING SATURDAY LOVE FEAST where we can all together discuss and organize who will do what.

     

    The festival will take place on Monday 31st of October 2016 at the 7070 Birnam Hare Krsna Center Montreal and starts at 5.00pm. See you soon!

Offer Lord Krsna a Light Daily in the Temple

Another important function during the month of Karttika is to visit the temple of Krsna at least once a dayand offer Krsna a light. The Lord becomes very pleased to see a sincere effortto worship Him and bestows benediction of pure devotional service during thismonth if the offering is done with sincerity. Please do not miss a single dayand visit the Hare Krsna Center Montreal, which is a unique place where the bona spiritual master is respected with full awe and reverence and see the effect of how your Krsna consciousness florishes. Srila Prabhupada says:

 

In Vrndavana we shallhave Urja-vrata for one month. You also could observe urja-vrata here from thenext Ekadasi, one month. I have already instructed Karandhara to have a skylamp and put candle in the evening to the Deity for one month. Each one, asmall candle should... Departure -- LosAngeles, October 5, 1972

 

He also describes:

 

It is stated in the Hari-bhakti-sudhodaya, "Persons who are impelled by pure devotionalservice in Krsna consciousness and who therefore go to see the Deities of Visnuin the temple will surely get relief from entering again into the prison houseof a mother's womb." The conditioned soul forgets the trouble of livingwithin the mother's womb during birth, but it is a very painful and terribleexperience. In order to make an escape from this material condition, one isadvised to visit a temple of Visnu with devotional consciousness. Then one canvery easily get out of the miserable condition of material birth.

The month of Karttika also known as Urja vrata begins today on Sunday the 16th of October and willlast until the Rasa-Lila Day on the next full moon night. This month isespecially ausicious for those who want to get their devotional desires to befulfilled and any devotional service you might execute during this month isbelieved to be extraordinarily effective. Devotees of Krsna therefore makedifferent vows which they faithfully execute during this month. For example onemakes a vow to chant some extra rounds on the japa-mala, do some extra servicefor the temple of Krsna, read an extra chapter of the Bhagavad-gita etc. Thereis no restriction on what vows one should take as long as the service is doneunder the guidance of the bona fide spiritual master. The main point is toincrease our meditation on the Lord and elevate our consciousness more andmore. No devotee thinks he's perfect and any sincere devotee naturally takesadvantage of this auspicious month. Srila Prabhupada explains:

Invitation for Sri Gaura Purnima       

 

On this day Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the last incarnation of Lord Sri Krishna, appeared 500 years ago to deliver the most fallen people of the age of Kali, the age of quarrel and hypocrisy. In the Vedas it is described that in this age the production of vegetables and fruits is less than before. As such, all living beings, both men and animals, do not have sumptuous, nourishing food. Due to want of so many necessities of life, naturally the duration of life is reduced, the memory is short, intelligence is meager, mutual dealings are full of hypocrisy and so on. Additionally almost anyone who seeks for bonafide spiritual practice is cheated and coming to the platform of self-realization seems to be impossible. Therefore, the Lord appeared in His most munificent form as Lord Krishna Chaitanya to deliver the suffering conditioned souls by the simple and sublime process of Sankirtan Yajna – Congregational Chanting of The Holy Names of Krishna, The Supreme Personality Of Godhead and sumptuous distribution of  Prasadam – foodstuff which is offered first to the Lord, sanctified by him and thus is free from any material reaction. Anyone who participates in such process, regardless of colour, cast, creed, nationality, gender, religion, beliefs or even type of material body whether it’s a human, demigod, dog, cat or a raccoon is automatically advancing towards the highest goal of life.

 

This process isn’t concocted but is approved by the Vedic authority. In The Brihad Naradiya Puranam it is said that in the Kali Yuga (the present Yuga or Age), when people in general are short-living, slow in spiritual realization, and always disturbed by various anxieties, the best means of spiritual realization is to chant the holy Name of the Lord. "In this age of quarrel and hypocrisy the only means of deliverance is to chant the holy Name of the Lord. There is no other way to success."

 

We meet at the temple at 12pm and from there we’ll all go and chant throughout the streets the sweet holy name of Krsna. Bring lots of energy to sing, chant and dance in ecstasy! After the sankirtan, devotees will return to the temple and the Gaura Purnima festival will continue by reading from Srila Prabhupada’s books about the blissful pastime of Lord Caitanya, more chanting and dancing and of course prasadam at the end! Please drop by, we will be going on celebrating up until 8.00pm. Everyone is welcome!

Vyasa Puja Ceremony Honoring His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Please come and join us for the auspicious Vyasa Puja ceremomy in honor of our spiritual master His Divine Grace Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada on September 6th at our new temple location in 7070 Birnam Street starting on 10 am!


One day in a year, on the day of the birthday of the spiritual master, Vyasa Puja is held. It is called Vyasa Puja because the spiritual master represents Srila Vyasadeva. Vyasadeva is the original acarya. To worship the bona fide spiritual master and worship the Lord, they are the same. Lord Krsna says that it is better to worship the bona fide spiritual master than to worship Him directly. Actually we cannot directly approach the Supreme Personality of Godhead, we have to go through the acarya. The bona fide spiritual master is offered the same respect as God, because He is the representative of God: Saksad dharitvena smasta sastrair. The spiritual master comes in direct line of disciplic succession from God and He speaks only God's words without adulteration Therefore on this day of Vyasa Puja we give all respects to the bona fide spiritual master who saves us from this calamities of material bondage. He delivers the respect we are giving to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, being His most confidential servant. By giving our respect to the spiritual master we learn how to properly respect the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krsna.


On this day devotees write an homage, an offering to the spiritual master, praising His qualities and writing about their realizations of the relationship to him and their understanding of Krsna consciousness.


Please come and join us for this treasured festival which sumptuous prasadam!

Auspicious Temple Opening Celebration at Sri Krsna Janmastami


Come and join us for the Temple Opening and Sri Krsna Janmastami Celebration on September 6th 2015 at 5 pm our new temple location at 7070 Birnam Street, just 2 minutes walk from Acadie metro!

There will be kirtan, discussion on the pastimes of Sri Krsna and a sumptuous vegetarian feast. Everyone is invited to celebrate the next phase of our preaching efforts here in Montreal!


Lord Krsna says:
“One who knows the transcendental nature of My appearance and activities does not, upon leaving the body, take his birth again in this material world, but attains My eternal abode, O Arjuna.” Bhagavad Gita As It Is 4.9

So what is that transcendental nature of Sri Krsna’s appearance?
Why does Lord Krsna descent to mrtyu-loka, the planet of death, old age, disease and birth?

Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. His appearance is completely on the spiritual platform. Out of His causeless mercy He descends as soon as there is some discrepancy in understanding of eternal life. Lord Krsna comes in order to teach real religion.
yada yada hi dharmasya glanir bhavati bharata abhyutthanam adharmasya tadatmanam srjamy aham (BG 4.7)


Lord Sri Krsna appeared on this day of Janmastami on this planet in this universe. And immediately after He appeared in another universe. Therefore Krsna’s pastimes are called Nitya Lila, eternal pastimes. They go on continuously without stoppage.
So Lord Krsna is coming to remind us: why are you rotting in this material world? There is the real world, the spiritual world waiting upon us where we can have direct personal association of the Lord.

We are running here after a little material pleasure in form of family, society, friendship, love. We trying to squeeze out some happiness, chewing the chewed by engaging in illicit sex. But what is that pleasure compared to the unlimited ocean of transcendental happiness Lord Krsna offers? The unending freedom, where no more birth, death, old age and disease is waiting upon us?

The Lord comes, He appears out of His causeless mercy to reclaim the fallen souls, to teach real religion. And this is something very practical. In the Bhagavad Gita Sri Krsna tells us exactly how we can come to Him:
We have to surrender to the Supreme Personality of Godhead in devotion. And Krsna is promising His protection unto such a surrendered soul: sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja aham tvam sarva-papebhyo moksayisyami ma sucah Bhagavad Gita As It Is 18.66

So this day of Janmastami is an excellent opportunity to hear about the transcendental appearance of the Lord to mother Devaki and Vasudeva, hear His pastimes in the association of devotees and chant His holy names.

Sri Krsna Janmastami ki jaya!
See you on Sunday at Birnam Street at 5 pm!

The Special Love 

Festival Program starts at 5:00Pm This

Saturday!

 

Philosophy , Chanting & Dancing

 

In the mean time here is beautiful quote from Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī, who forbids us to sing any song not sung by authorized devotees :

 

avaiṣṇava-mukhodgīrṇaṁ

pūtaṁ hari-kathāmṛtam

śravaṇaṁ naiva kartavyaṁ

sarpocchiṣṭaṁ yathā payaḥ

"One should not hear anything about Kṛṣṇa from a non-Vaiṣṇava. Milk touched by the lips of a serpent has poisonous effects; similarly, talks about Kṛṣṇa given by a non-Vaiṣṇava are also poisonous."

Transcendental Festival to Commemorate the Disappearance of Srila Prabhupada

Hare Krsna, dear friends!

 

We would like to invite you to celebrate the Divine Disapperance Day of our dearmost spiritual master His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder-acarya of the worldwide Hare Krsna movement. Chanting Hare Krsna, reading about His divine pastimes and a delicious feast will be served at 10.00 AM in the Hare Krsna Center Montreal this Monday 27th of October 2014. Please do not miss this wonderful transcendental event!

 

 

 

To take the passing away of a devotee and the passing away of a nondevotee as one and the same is completely misleading. While ascending the transcendental airplane, Dhruva Maharaja suddenly saw death personified before him, but he was not afraid. Instead of death's giving him trouble, Dhruva Maharaja took advantage of death's presence and put his feet on the head of death. People with a poor fund of knowledge do not know the difference between the death of a devotee and the death of a nondevotee. In this connection, an example can be given: a cat carries its kittens in its mouth, and it also catches a rat in its mouth. Superficially, the catching of the rat and the kitten appear to be one and the same, but actually they are not. When the cat catches the rat in its mouth it means death for the rat, whereas when the cat catches the kitten, the kitten enjoys it. When Dhruva Maharaja boarded the airplane, he took advantage of the arrival of death personified, who came to offer him obeisances; putting his feet on the head of death, he got up on the unique airplane, which is described here to be as big as a house (grham).
