On Saturday, 30 September 2017, the NOIDA centre of Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir celebrated the festival of Dussehra.
Sankirtrana was performed followed by a talk on Dussehra by His Grace Suvyakyta Narasimha Dasa, Senior Vice President, Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir.
He said, “The ten heads of Ravana are compared the ten anarthaas in the heart. If you try to kill them separately, they grow back. Unless we destroy the ‘amrita kalasha’ of lust they will keep returning to our hearts. Lust can only be destroyed by developing love of Krishna. So it is most important for a person to practice devotional service to Lord Krishna.”
Following the invigorating talk, the presiding Deities of the centre Sri Sri Gaura Nitai were offered Maha Mangalarati. Then all the assembled devotees honoured a delicious Prasadam feast .
