Sri Nityananda Trayodasi - Sunday, February 17

We would like to invite you to celebrate with us Sri Nityananda Trayodasi, the appearance day of Lord Nityananda. Nityananda Prabhu appeared as Caitanya Mahaprabhu's principal associate for spreading the congregational chanting of the Holy Names of the Lord. He appeared in 1474 in the village of Ekacakra, now in West Bengal. He especially spread the Holy Name of Krishna throughout Bengal. His beauty was so enchanting and He was so full of ecstatic love for Krishna, that wherever He moved, crowds of people would follow and become lovers of God. He is considered an incarnation of Krishna's principal expansion, Balarama.
