Sri Nityananda Prabhu
Sunday, February 5, 2012
11:30 am in Santa Cruz
5:30 pm in San Jose
Please join us for worship and glorification of Sri Nityananda Prabhu. If you do not know much about Nityananda Prabhu, this will be an excellent opportunity to hear about His qualities. He is extremely merciful and has very charming pastimes. Without Nityananda Prabhu's mercy there would be no hope for fallen souls such as ourselves to attain devotion to the lotus feet of Sri Krishna.
We will feel very much benefitted and nourished to have your good association on this occasion. The program will include congregational chanting, seva
, and a grand feast of Maha-prasadam
. Please come!

"The pastimes of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu are revealed by Nityananda's mercy only, because His personal expansion, Ananta Sesa, is the storehouse of information about Lord Chaitanya and Lord Krsna's pastimes."
-Sri Chaitanya Bhagavata, Adi Lila, Chapter One
"Nityananda Prabhu's approach was somewhat peculiar. His strategy was to uplift the most fallen. Like Napoleon, whose policy was to attack the strongest position of the opposing army, Nityananda Prabhu wanted to capture the most sinful."
-The Golden Volcano of Divine Love, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj
dekho ore bhai, tri-bhuvane
nai emona doyala data
pasu pakhi jhure, pasana vidare,
suni jara guna-gatha
My dear brother, just try and examine this. Within the three worlds there is no one like Lord Chaitanya or Lord Nityananda. Their merciful qualities are so great that upon hearing them even birds and beasts cry and stones melt.
