E-mail: hindumisson@canada.com, on Saturday, August 20, 2005, from 12 noon to 10 p.m. by MCMSS. The garland of ceaseless festivities that vividly depicted the divine significance and beauty of MahaUdhdharan Lila (divine sports of Avatars/incarnations of God that inherently expose the godly characteristics of the players) initiated by Prabhu Jagadbandhu Sundar and propagated by Mahanam Sampraday and Mahanam Sevak Sangha, comprised of Chandrapat Mahakirtan, Bhajans, other devotional songs, kirtans and mahakirtans praising the glory of Lords Krishna (Radha), Chaitanya (Gouranga Mahaprabhu), Nityananda Prabhu and Prabhu Sundar, readings from the Gita and Bhagavatam, narratives of various episodes of Prabhu Sundar’s Life of Lila including a biographical sketch in Bengali outlined by a Montrealer patron and the one written in English by Neal Delmonico, Ph. D., published by the famous publisher ABC-CLIO of California, U.S.A. in the religious encyclopedia “Holy People of the World,” in November 2004, a religious dance (Kathak) and the concluding Aaroti/Kirtan – a life-blood of Prabhu Sundar’s MahaUdhdharan Lila Life. The Master of Ceremony (M.C.) conveyed the heartiest thanks to the audience intermittently throughout the program as also at the conclusion for their kindest presence and sincerest support and generosity. The fragrance of the lighted incense kept emanating into the flowing air, the kirtan songs kept reverberating within the four walls, the roof and the floor, as if, to create a milieu of pervasive divinity.

MCMSS had printed full-page advertisements of this program with pictures of Prabhu Sundar in the two Bengali newspapers

(1) Bangla News (dated Thursday, 18 August, 2005, Vol. 02, Issue 13, Page 12)
(2) Deshe Bideshe (dated Thursday, August 18, 2005, Volume 15, No 26, Page 23...half-page)

both published from Toronto, inviting devotees and patrons to join the festival.

New York Mahanam Sevak Sangha (NYMSS) joined the celebration by the gracious invitation of MCMSS. A devotee from Toronto, Canada also joined.

At the conclusion of the unceasing festivities, a gracious and sumptuous full-course Mahaprasad was served on the third floor banquet hall to each attendees.

The entire ceremony was memorable and fulfilling to all those who attended. For another time MahaUdhdharan Lila interconnected BrajaLila and GourLila and created a confluence of the Three Lilas bathing in which the participants and the crowd felt mesmerized, ecstatic and fulfilled in their heart of hearts.

On Sunday, August 21, 2005, an Istogosthi was arranged by one MCMSS member in his house and the festivities of mainstream kirtans and other devotional songs (including Gita Paath and Chandrapat MahaKirtan) reverberated the surrounding quaint atmosphere once again as a recurrence of the previous night at the temple, as also bhog prasad was distributed to the guests.

A synopsis of the entire program written in Bengali with a few pictures of the celebration festivities was submitted for publication in the Bengali Newspapers "Deshe Bideshe" and "Bangla News" both published in Toronto by MCMSS on Monday, August 22, 2005, published on Thursday, August 25, 2005, Volume 15, No 27, Page 29 in Deshe Bideshe and Vol. 02, Issue 14, Page 24 in Bangla News).

Pictures of the Hindu Mission Temple, the permanent shrine of the temple on the second floor along with Prabhu Sundar’s erected shrine for the day of the celebration and various other pictures of the participants and the attendees of the program will be posted on the MCMSS web site –
