Gaura Purnima is the auspicious appearance day of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who is also known as Gauranga due to His golden complexion. This festival also marks the beginning of the New Year for Gaudiya Vaishnavas. As stated in the scriptures, the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna appeared as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to establish sankirtana (chanting of the Holy Names) – the yuga dharma for this age of Kali. On Gaura Purnima, devotees typically fast till moonrise and break their fast with a special feast called Jagannath Mishra Feast, named after Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s father, who arranged a grand feast to celebrate the birth of his son. Join us in this vibrant celebration, one of the highlights among our annual festivals!
