Gaura Purnima - Appearance Day of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Sunday, March 12th, 2017
Fasting Until Moon Rise



                           
                                   
This festival celebrates the appearance of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It is observed annually (in February - March) by Krishna devotees all over the world—especially in the area of Mayapur, India, the place where Mahaprabhu appeared in the year 1486.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is the Supreme Person, Krishna Himself, appearing as His own devotee, to teach us that we can gain full enlightenment simply by chanting the holy names of the Lord:
Those who witnessed Mahaprabhu's pastimes saw Him dance and chant with ecstatic love for God, the likes of which had never been seen before. He encouraged everyone to follow this same process. He taught that anyone—regardless of background or spiritual qualification—could develop their innate love of God and experience great spiritual pleasure by chanting the Hare Krishna mantra.
The present-day International Society for Krishna Consciousness continues the work begun by Lord Chaitanya, who predicted that the chanting of the holy names of Krishna would spread all over the world.
Gaura Purnima means "golden full moon," signifying that:
1) Lord Chaitanya was “born” during a full moon, and
2) The Lord blesses everyone with the soothing, moon like rays of His sublime teachings.
His followers generally observe this festival by fasting and chanting the holy names all day. At moon rise, a vegetarian feast is offered to the Lord and then enjoyed by all.

Thank you very much,
Your Bhakti Yoga Team

Advaita Acharya Apperance Day
Friday, Februaury 3rd, 2017

                           
                                   
Advaita Acharya appeared in fifteenth century Bengal, India, as a teacher of Krishna consciousness. He is frequently mentioned in the biography of Chaitanya MahaprabhuChaitanya Charitamrita, as an intimate associate of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and as an avatar of Krishna (specifically an incarnation of Sadashiva and Maha-Vishnu).
Chaitanya Charitamrita relates how Advaita Acharya was so pained to see the degraded condition of the people in Kali Yuga, the Age of Quarrel, that He fervently prayed for Krishna Himself to descend and remedy the situation. Sri Advaita worshiped Krishna on the banks of the Ganges with Ganges water and Tulasi leaves, crying out and begging for the Lord to come save the suffering souls. In response to Sri Adwaita Acharya's devotion and compassion, Krishna decided to appear, in the form of His own devotee—Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
Advaita Acharya was the first among Mahaprabhu's associates to appear within the material world. Some sixty years prior to Mahaprabhu's own advent, Advaita Acharya had already begun chanting Krishna's names in the streets with devotees and discussing scriptures on devotional service to Krishna.
Advaita Acharya's name indicates that He is nondifferent—advaita—from Krishna, and spiritual master—acharya—because He taught devotional service to Krishna. Advaita Acharya lived in Shantipura and Mayapura, in what is now West Bengal, and was the head of the Vaishnava community of Nadia.


Lord Nityananda's Apperance Day
 Wednesday Februaury 8rd, 2017


                                   
Nityananda Prabhu appeared as Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's principal associate for spreading the congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord. He appeared in 1474 in the village of Ekachakra, now in West Bengal. He especially spread the holy name of Krishna throughout Bengal. His beauty was so enchanting and He was so full of ecstatic love for Krishna that, wherever He moved, crowds of people would follow and become lovers of God. He is considered an incarnation of Krishna's principal expansion, Balarama.
Fast until noon in observance of the appearance anniversary of Lord Nityananda.

Thank you very much,
Your Bhakti Yoga Team
