Aindra Prabhu’s Immense Love for Deity Worship

BY ONDREJ HLADEK

Many know him as King of Kirtans but very few know he had immense love for deity worship. The reason why he could put deep impressions in everyone’s heart was because of his eternal loving service to his silas and Sri Sri Radha Shyamsunder…

If one attains perfection in Deity worship, that is called Arcana Siddhi. Arcana Siddhi means simply by Deity worship one goes back to Godhead, immediately after this life.

BY BHAKTI SIDDHANTA SWAMI

MAYAPUR – This year another abhishek of Lord Nrsimha took place over a two day period, oils on one day and milk products and sweet fruit juice liquids on the next. Buckets of offerings were poured onto the Lord, marking another year of protection for the work in Mayapur, what to speak of the Iskcon collective. One can not help but appreciate the satisfaction that Lord has had as the best of  milk, yogurt, ghee, honey, and fruit juice happened to fall into His mouth and splash or ooze out the other side on such a hot humid day. A melodious kirtan filled the temple room honoring a Best Friend and Protector of the devotees. Sri Nrsimhadeva Bhagavan Ki Jaya!
