Lord Nityananda is the expansion of Lord Balarama
and the eternal associate of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He is fondly called as Nitai. Lord Nityananda is the cardinal guru of all the universes. Without the mercy of Lord Nityananda, no one can understand Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He appeared two decades before the appearance of Lord Chaitanya in the second half of 15th century in
Ekachakra, West Bengal.
The appearance day of Lord Nityananda was grandly observed at ISKCON Hubli-Dharwad on 1st February 2015. Special programs like Pallakki Utsav, Mahaabhishekam and a special discourse attracted a huge congregation of devotees to the temple in the evening. The devotees had a spiritual fare with their Lordships Sri Sri Nitai Gauranga.
