The 70th Vyasapuja of HH Jayapataka Swami was celebrated in a very grand and loving way by his disciples and well-wishers at ISKCON Mayapur. Over 14000 disciples congregated at Mayapur to glorify their beloved spiritual master. Sri Mayapur and Jayapataka Swami are synonymous. Maharaja once said I know only three things- Mayapur, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, and Congregational preaching. His love for Mayapur dhama is no surprise as it is confirmed by Srila Prabhupada that “He is an associate of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu”. He has been commissioned to appear again to revive the fallen conditioned souls, back home back to Godhead.
A Vyasa-puja pandal was erected at the parking area, with beautiful designs. On the stage, HDG Srila Prabhupada and Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakura were worshipped in two swan-vyasasanas. The Adivas ceremony took place the day before, preparing everyone’s consciousness to observe Vyasa-puja.
On the day of Vyasapuja, 70 lamps with victory flags were lighted in Sri Narasimhadeva, Sri Radha-Madhava, and Sri Panca-tattva altar. Pujas were continuously offered to Their Lordships for Maharaja’s good health and spiritual welfare. Maharaja also raised a victory flag in the ToVP office.
The program continued with glorifications by his godbrothers, different sanyasis from the Gaudiya Matha, sanyasi disciples, and senior leaders. On this occasion, several devotees were honored for their outstanding and dedicated service to Jayapataka Maharaja. Then, the lotus feet bathing ceremony and artik took place. After this, Maharaja gave his Vyasapuja address to all the participants.
The Vyasa-puja videos are available in Jayapataka Swami Facebook page.
