Lord Nityananda appeared as Lord Chaitanya’s principal associate for spreading congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord and to bring the mercy of Lord Krishna to all the fallen, materially conditioned souls. Nityananda Prabhu, who is identical with Lord Balarama, is considered to be the original guru for all of mankind. We would like to invite everyone to join us on this auspicious occasion
