Nityananda's Appearance Day Schedule

12:16:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , , 2 comments

On Saturday evening (6:00pm to 9:00pm), a very special festival will be taking place as we celebrate Lord Nityananda's Appearance Day! Lord Nityananda is considered identical with Balarama, the elder brother of Lord Krishna. He is regarded as being like the elder brother of Lord Chaitanya and always served Him in any way. With HH Bhaktimarga Swami in attendance, festivities will be highlighted with a "dramatic" display of Lord Nityananda's pastimes and qualities! It will surely be a festival not to be missed!

The schedule for the evening's festivities will be as follows:
6:00pm to 6:30pm - Arati led by Dhira Grahi das
6:30pm to 6:40pm - Welcome and Announcments
6:40pm to 7:15pm - Class by HH Bhaktimarga Swami
7:15pm to 8:00pm - Dramatic Surprise!
8:00pm to 8:30pm - Arati
8:30pm to 9:00pm - Prasadam

Join us as we celebrate this very special festival at the Hare Krishna temple!
