70th Vyasapuja celebrations of HH Jayapataka Swami 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 Gurudeva. Sri Mayapur and Jayapataka Swami are synonymous. Maharaja once said, I know only three things- Mayapur, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Congregation 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.
Vyasapuja pandal has been made at the parking area, with beautiful designs. In the stage, HDG Srila Prabhupada and Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakura were worshipped in two swan vyasasanas. Adivas ceremony took place on the day before , preparing everyone’s consciousness to observe Vyasapuja. 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 continously offered to Their Lordships for Maharaja’s good health and spiritual welfare. Maharaja also raised victory flag in ToVP office. Program continued with glorification by his god brothers, different sanyasis from Gaudiya Mutt, Maharajas sanyasi disciples, senior leaders and disciples.
