Appearance of Lord Balarama
August 12 @ 4:30 am - 9:00 pmFree
Friday 12 August 2022
The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, is the fountainhead of all incarnations. Lord Balarama is His second body. They are both one and the same identity. They differ only in form. In Lord Krishna’s pastimes, He plays as Krishna’s older brother. Together Krishna and Balarama enact many pastimes as cowherd boys in the land of Vrindavan.
Lord Balarama exemplifies the service attitude to Krishna. His only mission is to please Krishna by rendering service to Him, whether it is in the creation of the material worlds, maintaining the spiritual world or as His personal paraphernalia.
Lord Balarama is the eternal companion of Sri Krishna. He came as Laxman with Rama and later as Sri Nityananda Prabhu with Lord Caitanya. He is the original spiritual master, and any one desiring to make spiritual progress must first get the mercy of Lord Balarama.
Balaram Jayanti, the appearance of Lord Balarama, celebrates the activities and pastimes of Lord Krishna’s brother, Lord Balarama. There will be kirtans, dramas, ceremonies, and a feast. Open for everyone.
