Lord Nityananda’s Appearance Day, February 1st 2015

Hare Krishna, Dear Devotees!

Please, come and celebrate one of the most auspicious Vaishnava festivals – Sri Nityananda Trayodasi.

sarac candra bhrantim sphurad amala kantim gaja gatim
hari premonmattam dhrita parama sattvam smita mukham
sada ghurnan netram kara kalita vetram kali bhidam
bhaje nityanandam bhajana taru kandam niravadhi

I eternally worship Lord Nityananda, the root of the tree of devotional service. He appears like the autumn moon, very splendid and free of any taint. Maddened with pure love for Lord Hari, He walks as gracefully as an elephant, and His eyes constantly roll about. He is the Absolute Truth, His face is smiling, and He disperses the influence of the Age of Kali with the staff in His hand.

Govardhana Puja Festival, October 24-26, 2014

namaste girirajaya
sri govardhana namine
ashesha klesha nashaya
paramananda dayine

I offer my respectful obeisances unto the king of all hills, Govardhana Hill (the source of enjoyment for the senses, land, and cows). He is a servant of Krsna and is Krsna Himself. He puts an end to unlimited sufferings and bestows the supreme bliss.


sthala jala tala shashpair bhuruhach-chayaya cha
prati padam anukalam hanta samvardhayan gah
tri jagati nija gotram sarthakam khyapayan me
nija nikata nivasa dehi govardhana tvam

O Govardhan! Please grant me residence near your side. You are worshiping Shri Radha and Krishna with your nice spacious meadows, ponds, streams and waterfalls, forests, fresh grass, and shade trees; you are nourishing Shri Krishna´s beloved cows whose numbers are thus increasing at every moment. Your very name Govardhan (gah means cows, and vardhayati means to nourish and increase) is successful and renowned throughout the three worlds, If I can reside near you, I will also be able to receive the see my desired worshipful Lord Shri Krishna, who comes to you when He brings His cows out to graze.

From Shri Govardhana-Vasa-Prarthana-Dashakam (Ten Prayers asking for residence near the Mountain of Govardhan by Shrila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami)
