The drama, Arrival of Nrsimhadeva in Mayapur: The Journey from Fear to Shelter, is a play performed by ISKCON Pune devotees, based on the amazing and miraculous story of the making and arrival of the Prahlad-Nrsimhadeva deities in ISKCON Mayapur. The video of the drama is a production of Radha Kunjabihari Media Services.
The history begins on March 24, 1984 when 35 dacoits attacked ISKCON Mayapur, injured many devotees and stole chota Radha Madhava. Fearing further attacks, several unsuccessful attempts were made by Mayapur devotees to have a Nrsimha deity made for protection. After many months, a sthapati (deity carver) finally agreed, and two years later the deities of Prahlad-Nrsimha were finished and brought to Mayapur for a three-day installation festival from July 28-30, 1986. Since then, there have been no further attacks, and many miracles have been performed by the Lord. Those lilas can be read in the free online flipbook, Lord Nrsimhadeva, ISKCON Mayapur.
2023 marks the 37th Anniversary of Their installation, being celebrated on July 28-30. We present this history to the worldwide ISKCON community for their pleasure in conjunction with the scheduled opening on the completed Nrsimhadeva Wing inside the TOVP, the largest Nrsimhadeva temple in the world, in the Fall of this year during a three-day festival.
Along with presenting the drama video, we have also published a free online flipbook, Lord Nrsimhadeva Arrives in Mayapur with the full narration by Atma-tattva das (ACBSP), who arranged for the carving of the murti, and many never-before-seen photos of Prahlad-Nrsimha in the making and Their arrival in Sridham Mayapur.
This also presents to all devotees another amazing opportunity to help complete the new home of Mayapur Nrsimhadeva, scheduled to open during the 2024 Gaura Purnima Festival from February 29 – March 2. Please visit the Give To Nrsimha Fundraiser page on the TOVP website and show the Lord your love and appreciation for His protection by sponsoring a Nrsimha brick with your name inscribed and placed permanently under His altar or one of many other sponsorship options.
