The festival of eternal bliss- the appearance day of Lord Nityananda 23.02.2013


Dear devotees and friends

We are very happy to welcome you to the festival of eternal bliss, which is the appearance day of Lord Nityananda. PLs come and spend time in the atmosphere of blissful chanting of the holy name of the Lord. We will have festival on Saturday but also celebrate the appearance of the Lord on Sunday as well. We will focus on chanting kirtans and dancing and just being happy. this is all we want!

“In the maha-mantra — Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare — the word “Rama” refers to Balarama. Since Lord Nityananda is Balarama, “Rama” also refers to Lord Nityananda. Thus Hare Krsna, Hare Rama addresses not only Krsna and Balarama but Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda as well.”

As this is the “birthday” of the Lord you are welcome to bring a gift. If you have no idea here is the suggested wishlist you could choose from:

  1. Laxmi or money (no limit, whatever you offer will be engaged in the service of the Lord)
  2. A car, best 7-seater in good condition or new, old cars that need repair may be of more burden than use so bring only what can really help the temple in the service. you may contact temple president first if you decide to offer a car. (this is not a joke, we really need it)
  3. One pregnant “Kerry” cow. We don’t want any other cows as our cowherd boy has very specific taste and we need to keep him very happy in the service.  (contact us before bringing the cow or rather give  money towards getting the cow as we need to select a very good quality cow, to make a nice herd)
  4. fruit trees (apple, cherry, pear, black currant, raspberry, American black berry, gooseberry etc.)
  5. garden tools (spade, rake, buckets, watering can (big metal), wheelbarrow etc.)
