Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir celebrated the festival of Narasimha Jayanti at Gurgaon on 20th May 2016 with Narasimha Homa organised at the temple ashram in Gurgaon in the morning.
Oblations were offered to Lord Narasimha in a sacrificial fire to the chanting of Vedic mantras.
In the evening, Sankirtana programme was held at Trinity Tower Hall, on Club Drive in DLF V, Gurgaon.
Events included Bhajan Sandhya with devotional songs on Lord Narasimha accompanied by Harinama Sankirtan.
Sri Suvyakta Narasimha Dasa, Senior Vice President of Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, gave a lecture vividly relating the pastimes of Lord Narasimha.
He said, “Prahlad Maharaja was a great ideal for humanity because of his unflinching devotion to Lord Vishnu even in arduous circumstances of grave danger. When his demonic father, Hiranaykashipu decided to kill Prahlad personally, Lord Vishnu Himself appeared in the form of Lord Narasimha to protect His staunch devotee.”
Performance of Arati for Lord Narasimha followed this and the programme ended with distribution of Prasadam to the devotees.
