May 31, BANDAR SUNGAI LONG, MALAYSIA (SAT)  – The appearance day of Lord Narasimha which was celebrated on 19th May 2008 commemorates the appearance of Lord Vishnu as half man, half lion, to protect His devotee Prahlad Maharaj from his demonic father Hiranyakashipu. At Iskcon Kuala Lumpur, it was indeed a grand celebration. Many took part in hearing the nectarian pastimes of the Lord and rendered prayers in glorification of Lord Narasimha. For those who never had the opportunity to do so, His Grace Madhumaya Krsna Das prabhu and Her Grace Astasakhi Devi Dasi mataji had made special arrangements at Garden Park Condominium so that others may have the privilege of celebrating the appearance day of Lord Narasimha at their very own home. Upon humble request, Mr. and Mrs. Selva had happily agreed to host the evening program and invite more people.

The program began at 7pm with nice bhajans by Srivas Caitanya Das prabhu together with other VOICE members. By that time, almost 30 people had come together for the program and more were pouring in. Soon after the bhajans, Srivas Caitanya prabhu briefly explained the itinerary of the program and passed on to His Grace Karuna Sindhu Kannaya Das prabhu to narrate the Lord’s pastimes. His Grace captured the attention of all, when he with vivid realization told the thrilling story of Hiranyakashipu, Prahlad and Lord Narasimha Deva. Next was the mass recitation of prayers in glorification of Lord Narasimha. Everyone took part in chanting the 108 names of Lord Narasimha and recited Sri Narasimha Kavacam. The spiritual vibration was simply rejuvenating and to spice up things a little bit more, there were some video clips shown on the arati performed for Lord Narasimha at Mayapur temple and also few short climax scenes extracted from the old movie ‘Dasavataram’. The program was concluded with a short arati and heavy kirtan followed by prasadam. The hosts were very happy about the event and looking forward for a continuous program at their home. One of the hosts, Mrs. Selva shared a few words, “After the program, we are very happy within and this could be seen through our eyes…thank you very much”.
