The Supreme Lord Sri Krishna appeared in Navadvipa now west bangal as Sri Chaitanya
Mahaprabhu to establish the Sankirtana Movement. To help the Supreme Lord in His
mission, Lord Balarama appeared as Nityananda Prabhu. He assisted Sri Chaitanya
Mahaprabhu by spreading the holy name of the Lord throughout Bengal.

Sri Nityananda Prabhu appeared in the village of Ekachakra in the district of Birbhum (West
Bengal). He was born as the son of Padmavati and Hadai Pandita in 1474 AD on the
thirteenth day of the bright fortnight in the month of Magha (Magha Shukla Trayodashi).
The place of birth of Lord Nityananda is called Garbhavasa. Many devotees make their visit
to this place and take darshan of the Deities. Sri Nityananda Prabhu, Balarama represents
the guru-tattva. The Supreme Lord cannot be understood by the strength of one’s erudition
or power of mental speculation. He can be known only by one who has the mercy of the
Lord. To understand Lord Krishna, we need the help of a guru, and without the mercy of
Nityananda Prabhu, we cannot realize our true self and supreme self, Lord Krishna.
We should seek refuge from Sri Nityananda Prabhu and become enlightened with spiritual
knowledge that grants us true happiness and liberation from all anxieties. Sri Nityananda
Prabhu is an embodiment of compassion and is revered by devotees as the Lord of Mercy.
Through His mercy, we will receive the necessary spiritual strength. On this auspicious day,
let us pray to Sri Nityanandan Prabhu for His blessings to make progress in our spiritual life.
We invite you to participate in the celebrations and be blessed.

Sri Nityananda Trayodashi is the auspicious appearance day of Sri Nityananda Prabhu.
ISKCON Noida will celebrate Sri Nityananda Trayodashi on 3 February, Friday. On this day,
devotees observe fasting till noon and seek the blessings of Sri Nityananda Prabhu. The
celebrations will take place from morning till evening at ISKCON NOIDA followed by kirtan
and prasadam.
Hare Krishna.
