Srila Vyasadeva, who is the incarnation of Lord Narayana, was born on the full moon day of the month of Asadha. In India, everyone worships their spiritual master on this day, which is celebrated with great honour and reverence as Sri Vyasa-puja, or Sri Guru-puja.Vyasa-puja is an annual celebration by devotees of Lord Krishna to offer homage to their guru, or spiritual teacher. Krishna Himself says that what He likes most is when someone likes His devotee.
the originator of all knowledge is Lord Shri Krishna and he gave it to Bhramaji, Bhrahmaji gave it to Naradji and Naradji gave that divine knowledge to Shri Vyasji. Vyasdevji converted that knowledge into Vedas, Mahabharat, Upnishadas and into Vedanat.
"Guru has not to invent any new knowledge but he has to spread the knowledge in a summarized form which is written into various religious books mentioned above. Hence The Guru is a representative of Vyasdev and that is why the birthday of Srila Prabhupada is celebrated as "Vyas Pooja. The Pooja to Guru is not a pujaja to an individual but our Guru offers that Puja to his Guru and ultimately the Puja is offered to Lord Krishna. Guru is not a God but a loved and faithful servant of the God and hence a Lord Krishna is pleased if we do pooja of our Guru.
Srila Prabhupad's Appearance Day is a very special day for all ISKCON devotees as they joyfully glorify their eternal saviour Srila Prabhupada on His appearance day.
Srila Prabhupada was sent by the Lord to fulfill Caitanya Mahaprabhu's prediction- Prtvithe ache yata nagaradi grama, sarvatra pracara haibe more nama: In every town and village of the world, My name will be heard.
Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakura wrote in his Sajjona-tosani, "Soon there will be a time when the chanting of Krishna's name will be heard in England, France, Russia, Germany and America."
Srila Prabhupada appeared on Nanadotsava. Nandotsava means: Nanda Maharaja's huge festival celebrating Krishna's birth. Nanda Maharaja dressed in luxurious garments and distributed profuse charity to everyone in his kingdom. He gave away opulent cloth and ornaments and two million richly decorated cows to the brahmanas. Vraja was alive with vibrations of Vedic hymns and beautiful decorations and everyone was experiencing unending happiness. Bursting with bliss, the Vrajavasis expressed their joy by throwing butter, yogurt and ghee all around.
One hundred years ago, on that most auspicious spiritual occasion, Srila Prabhupada appeared to fulfill the mission of Lord Krishna. Srila Prabhupada grew up as a pure devotee of the Lord and distributed Krishna Consciousness everywhere.
Srila Prabhupada made a perfect appearance, led a perfect life and had a perfect departure. Srila Prabhupada lives forever through his books. This legacy will always provide the devotees with Lord Caitanya katha and teach everyone to chant the Maha mantra.
