Lord Nityananda's Special Monthly Sankirtan Festival - This Saturday!

This coming Saturday is our 2nd MSF (Monthly Sankirtan Festival) for 2013 and it’s a special one! You may ask why? well... because its theappearance day of the most merciful Lord Nitai!
Lord Nityananda who is none other than Lord Balaram. He appeared over 500 years ago to assist Lord Caitanya in flooding the hearts of many materialistic souls with the Love of Krishna! In the spirit of Lord Nityananda, we will reach out to everyone and anyone on the streets of Toronto and share with them this wonderful message of Krishna Consciousness!
It will be a day of festivities, beginning with mangal aarti and an ecstatic morning program, followed by MSF and a grand evening program. Please come for as long as you can. We look forward to celebrating this most glorious day with you!

In your service,
Toronto Sankirtan Organizing Team
O Lord Caitanya, kindly offer me shelter at Lord Nityananda's Lotus feet. I am able to sing about the pastimes of Lord Caitanya because of my love for  Lord Nityananda. Lord Nityananda knows no other designation than being Lord Caitanya's servant. Only through serving Lord Nityananda is one eligible to become a devotee of Lord Caitanya. As by Lord Nityananda's grace one can know Lord Caitanya in truth, similarly to fully comprehend the truth about devotional service one must receive the blessings of Lord Nityananda. Lord Nityananda is very dear to all the devotees. Everyone can receive from Lord Nityananda entry into the path of devotional service. But if someone disregards Lord Nityananda, Lord Caitanya condemns him to eternal suffering.

Sankirtan is Fun And Easy!

We Did It!

Our apologies for missing in action on our blog for almost a month! No we haven't been hibernating...there's been lots going on! We smashed our target for 2012 on the most celebrated boxing day! We had our 4th Annual Devotee Appreciation Day, our 1st MSF of 2013 and lots of planning for the year ahead! Stay tuned for some updates from the last month. Here's a glimpse in to the magical moment from Prabhupada Marathon 2012, right after we met our target at Yonge and Dundas Square on Dec 26th! 

It was one of the coldest days of the year so far, but as has been a tradition, devotees headed out at 6:30am to catch the early shoppers and stayed on till about 4:00pm when we met our target. There was constant kirtan for the entire duration we were out and many many devotees came by to participate throughout the day. At the end of the day, we had distributed about 350 books on the street. from the Toronto Sankirtan Adventures Diary
