Sunday Love Feast with His Holiness Bhakti Caitanya Swami at 3pm
A meditation to welcome Lord Ramacandra into our homes:
“After giving Vibhisana the power to rule the Raksasa population of Lank for the duration of one kalpa, Lord Ramacandra, the Supreme Personality of Godhead [Bhagavan], placed Sitadevi on an airplane decorated with flowers and then got on the plane Himself. The period for His living in the forest having ended, the Lord returned to Ayodhya, accompanied by Hanuman, Sugriva and His brother Laksmana. When Lord Ramacandra returned to His capital, Ayodhya, He was greeted on the road by the princely order, who showered His body with beautiful, fragrant flowers, while great personalities like Lord Brahma and other demigods glorified the activities of the Lord in great jubilation.” Srimad Bhagavatam 9.10.32-33
