On 16th February we celebrated the appearance day of Lord Nityananda and the fifth anniversary of the opening of the Ujjain temple.
This year Guru Maharaj was unable to attend the function as he had to attend the GBC meetings in Sridham Mayapur. The devotees enthusiastically coordinated together to make the festival a grand success.
This year also the deities were decorated in exquisitely crafted flower dresses. The whole team who designed and put together the outfit worked for around 24 hours to complete the same. The orchids and special flowers were donated by Her Grace Merabai Mataji from Mumbai. All through the day people came to take darshan of Their Lordships and were absolutely charmed by Their beauty.
Avishek of Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga took place at 11 am while devotees sang and danced in the temple. The devotees participated in a delicious and sumptuous feast which included items like fried rice, dal
makhani, pakora, lacha paneer, sweet rice and gulabjamun. In the evening their was a joyful kirtan in the temple.
