Gaura-purnima/Ram Nawmi


The Appearance Day of Lord Caitanya is celebrated as Gaura-purnimaand this year fell on March the 5th. In Mauritius the temples organised kirtan all day, abhishek of Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai and an evening programme culminating in a feast for all our guests.

His Grace Sarvabhauma prabhu spent three weeks at Sri Sri Krishna Balarama Mandir, Bon Acceuil giving a series of lectures in adjoining villages, on Lord Caitanya and Lord Rama's pastimes.
