UPDATED: Nityananda's App Day - Feb 20, 2016

10:45:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

One of the sweetest festivals of the year Nityananda Trayodasi will fall on Saturday, February 20, 2016! A warm invitation goes out to you and your family to join us as we celebrate the advent (appearance) of Lord Nityananda.

Lord Nityananda (also known as Nityananda Prabhu, Nitai, Nityananda Balarama) appeared in the village of Ekachakra, in West Bengal, India, around 1474. In the Caitanya Caritamrita and other scriptures He is declared to be the avatar of Lord Balarama, the direct expansion of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna. He is honoured as Lord Chaitanya’s principal associate for spreading the congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord.

It will be a special day of celebrations and there are also many sponsorship opportunities still available for the festival: garlands, flowers, aratis and festival feast.  To sponsor, please contact us!

All devotees are encouraged to wear their favourite blue-coloured outfits in honour of Lord Nityananda, who is often depicted wearing blue clothing!

Festival Schedule (subject to change):
6:00pm to 6:30pm - Kirtan (Arati)
6:30pm to 6:40pm - Welcome & Announcements
6:40pm to 8:00pm - Special Presentation
8:00pm to 8:30pm - Kirtan (Arati)
8:30pm to 9:30pm - Vegetarian Feast (Prasadam)
