Visvarupa Mahotsava

Date: 
Fri, 2016-09-16


Visvarupa was the name of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's elder brother. Gaudiya Vaishnava authorities say Visvarupa was not an ordinary living being but an avatar of the Supreme Being. Visvarupa renounced family life in his teens to live as a traveling preacher of Krishna consciousness. Today marks the observance (mahotsava, or festival) of Visvarupa's acceptance of sannyasa, the renounced order of life in the Vedic social system.
