Message from His Holiness Jayapataka Swami
14 August 2017
Adivas lecture, at Sri Mayapur Dham

“So everyone please come to take part in the Janmashtami celebrations!”

Today we are having the Adivas. Tomorrow we will observe Janmashtami.
Brahma’s one day is 1000 Yugas and there have been 28 Yugas already completed . After 28 Yugas, Krishna comes. We are very fortunate that we are here just 5000 years after Krishna has come. Krishna’s appearance on this planet is transcendental. The observance of this festival tomorrow is extremely auspicious.

In the Sashtra that the day before Janmashtami we should observe Adivas. 26 auspicious pure items will be offered to Radha Krishna after that there will be an arthik. So the Lord has come forward which signifies that his purifying glance is upon all of us.If you would like to offer some service to Radha Krishna, it will be nice. The Adivas ceremony is going on now.
So everyone please come to take part in the Janmashtami celebrations.
After Adivas , you will all get some Maha Prasadam”
