Lord Nityananda Prabhu's Appearance Day Celebrations - Sunday, February 5, 2012
Please accept our humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!
The appearance day of Lord Nithyananda Prabhu will be celebrated with pomp and gaiety at ISKCON Scarborough coming Sunday 5th February 2012
Lord Nityananda Prabhu, whose name literally means, “eternally blissful”, appeared around 1474 AD in the village of Ekachakra, near Mayapur, West Bengal.
He is the eternal companion of Lord Caitanya and both are worshipped together as are Krishna and Balaram. In the same way that Lord Balaram is considered the original
spiritual master, so is Lord Nityananda.
Lord Caitanya is the most merciful incarnation of Lord Krishna, but Lord Nityananda, however, is even more merciful and compassionate than Lord Caitanya.
No service is too small to go unnoticed by Lord Nityananda, and no sinner too great not to qualify for his benedictions. Lord Nityananda gives the mercy to understand and approach Lord Caitanya, who in turn gives the mercy to approach Srimati Radharani, who blesses us with love of Krishna. So the worship of Lord Nityananda is most important to Gaudiya Vaishnavas seeking the mercy of Radha-Krishna.
