Shiva Ratri – Lord Shiva's Night


Wednesday the 18th February we honour Lord Shiva, Gopīśvara Mahādeva — the greatest Vaishnava, gatekeeper of Vrindavan, and helper of Krishna-devotees. We will sing Shiva-bhajans, there will be lecture, we will offer Bael leaves to Him, and then we sing some more. 

Bring some fruits or flowers to offer to Lord Shiva and come sing with us and hear about Him.

*

We start at 19.00
When we end, we don't know :)
Warm welcome!

Vrindavanvani-pate jaya soma soma
maule sanandana-sanatana-naradeya 
gopishvara vraja-vilasi-yuganghri-padme
prema prayaccha nirupadhi namo namas te 

O Shiva, O gatekeeper of Vrindavan! O you who are accompanied by Uma! O you who carry the moon in your hair! 
O lord worshiped by Sananda Kumara, Sanat Kumara and Narada Muni! 
O Gopisvara, the worshipable deity of the gopis! 
Desiring that you bestow upon me love for the divine couple, Sri Sri Radha Madhava, who perform joyous pastimes in Vraja, I offer my obeisances unto you again and again.

 Srila Visvanatha Chakravarti Thakura, Sri Sankalpa-Kalpadrum

Om Namah Shivaya
