Nityananda Trayodashi 2019

We will be celebrating Sri Nityananda Trayodashi in Dublin on Sunday 17th February. Please come along and take part in our festival

Sri Nityananda Trayodashi is the auspicious appearance day of Sri Nityananda Prabhu. The Supreme Lord Sri Krishna appeared in Navadvipa as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to establish the Sankirtana Movement (the Yuga Dharma for this age of quarrel and hypocrisy). To help the Supreme Lord in His mission, Lord Balarama appeared as Nityananda Prabhu. He assisted Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu by spreading the holy name of the Lord throughout Bengal.

Read more about The Glories Of Lord Nityānanda Balarāma from the Chaitanya Charitamrita (Adi-lila, Chapter 5).

Our Dublin Festival celebration details are as follows: 
Date: Sunday 17th February 2018
Time: 14:00 

Fasting is on Saturday 16th February until noon.

Stay tuned with our event details here to know of our final schedule

Contact us if you would like to do service for the festival to obtain the Mercy of Lord Nityananda.  Usually on the day, the Deities are offered a feast of 56 items (chappan bhog).

Community Relations

In February, our Dublin community will be welcoming HG Partha das and HG Uttama devi dasi.  They will be facilitating a wonderful seminar on “Community Relations and Attracting the Mercy Of Lord Nityananda”.

Schedule as follows:

Date: Friday 15th February
– Part 1 : 18.30 to 20.30

Date: Saturday 16th February
– Part 2 : 10.00 to 12.00
– Part 3 : 14.00 – 16.00

Initiated by Srila Prabhupada in 1973, husband and wife Partha and Uttama have an incredible amount of experience and wisdom between them. They’ve been happily married for forty-five years, have premarital education training certified by Prepare and Enrich, and have offered that education with the Grihasta Vision Team – a group of professional devotee counselors – for the past decade. In their native Canada, they also provide a mandated five-session premarital education course for all couples getting married at ISKCON temples.

Both of these stalwart devotees are part of the Grihastha Vision Team (GVT), whose goal is to support, strengthen, educate and enliven the individuals, couples and families (grihasthas) who are or will be involved with the grihastha ashram (family life).

Meeting with Ambassador of India to Ireland

We were very happy to accept the kind invitation of the new Ambassador of India to Ireland to meet with him at the embassy in Dublin this January.

It was a most rewarding meeting, not least to learn of Ambassador Sandeep Kumar’s strong support and indeed deep appreciation of ISKCON.

He offered us an open door and encouraged us to approach him whenever we needed any help or support and he also requested us permission for him to invite us to any events that are being hosted or sponsored by the embassy.

In closing he glorified ISKCON’s contribution to the world in the form of promoting vedic culture, raising awareness of the importance of spiritual practices and most of all our leading role in advancing pure vegetarian cuisine.

We hope Sandeep is not transferred anytime soon so we can look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship!
