In the memories of those devotees who lived and served during the physical presence of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada, the expression, “Prabhupada is Coming”, became the clarion call whenever he visited a temple. Devotees would become overwhelmed with ecstasy and stay up all day and night in preparation for his arrival.
When Prabhupada would finally arrive, the storehouse of love would break open as devotees showered him with flower petals from the roofs of temples, garlanded him with innumerable garlands, received his merciful glances, washed his feet, and sang and danced in the most spiritually drenched kirtans imaginable. These moments have become etched forever in their minds.
This February 25-27, 2021 Srila Prabhupada is indeed coming again, in his murti form, to be installed in a grand three-day celebration in the TOVP. Five kinds of abhishekas are planned, including sacred waters and copper, silver, gold and platinum coins, as well as a maha installation yajna. The first two days will include the observance of Nityananda Trayodasi on the 25th, and the official opening of the samadhi of His Holiness Bhakti Charu Maharaja on the 26th. The ceremony will also commemorate Srila Prabhupada’s 125th Appearance Anniversary Year celebration.
February 25 – Nityananda Trayodasi / Worldwide Prabhupada Abhisheka
February 26 – Bhakti Charu Maharaja Samadhi Opening
February 27 – New Prabhupada Murti Installation
This unprecedented and historic event will bring Srila Prabhupada, our divine master and ISKCON Founder/Acharya to the forefront of the TOVP where he can personally observe, manage and direct our progress until the Grand Opening in 2022. It also represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all devotees to honor His Divine Grace being installed in the TOVP by sponsoring one of five kinds of abhishekas. It is a worldwide, combined Guru dakshina offering from each and every member of ISKCON in gratitude for his mercy and the eternal gift of Krishna consciousness he has given us.
Go to the TOVP website and make your offering by sponsoring an abhisheka, especially during the most auspicious month of Purushottama beginning September 18th.
