Nrsimhadeva Festival Details and Other News

Dear Friends,

The celebration of the divine appearance of Lord Nrsimhadeva, the half-man half-lion avatar of Lord Vishnu, has been observed for millennia in India and is now celebrated world-wide. Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple will honor this day by holding events throughout the day on Saturday, May 2nd. Traditionally, bhakti-yogis honor Sri Nrsimhadeva as the protector of His devotees and the destroyer of all obstacles and difficulties on the path of devotion. Our speakers will share insights on the the role devotion to Nrismhadeva plays on the path of Bhakti. We warmly invite you to spend the day with us:
