– ISKCON Miraroad engages 326 children to speak Lord Gauranga’s Pastimes
Every year NICE (Narasimha’s institute for children education), the education wing of ISKCON Miraroad, organizes Spiritual Science Exhibition during the summer vacations, where around 200 children in and around Miraroad, Mumbai participate enthusiastically. This Exhibition is the best way to engage hundreds of children to speak the various beautiful pastimes of the Supreme Lord at the same time. The children come up with innovative ideas to present their pastime by making 3D models. By this, the children improve creativity skills, their talents are sharpened and most importantly, all the hyper energy is channelized in serving the Supreme Lord.
Every year, there is different theme for Spiritual Science Exhibition. The theme for 2020 was decided as – “LORD CHAITANYA MAHAPRABHU”. There are 19 stalls covering the pastimes of Lord Chaitanya from Adi Lila, Madhya Lila & Antya Lila of the three scriptures namely Chaitanya Bhagavat by Srila Vrindavan Das thakur, Chaitanya Charitamrita by Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami & Chaitanya Mangal by Srila Lochan Das thakur. The stall-wise divisions of the Mahaprabhu’s pastimes are as below.
As Srila Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami states that the tongue which initially glorifies Lord Balarama will automatically be qualified to vibrate the transcendental pastimes of Sri Chaitanya. Hence, the first stall starts with glorification of Sri Anantadeva & Lord Nityananda’s pastimes.
